My Quilt

My husband has been nagging me to make a quilt for our bed for some time now and I finally started it.  Our bed is king sized and I have a hard time making decisions, so that's why i was dragging my feet.  Ironically, I'm making a Single Girl quilt, hehehe.  It's mostly Kaffee Fasset prints, but there are a few AMH and Martha Negley prints mixed in as well.  The background is a Kaffee Fasset shot cotton in Pewter.

I still have a ways to go, but I just work on it when I'm in the mood so it's not overwhelming.  I have 2 of the 4 arcs all pieced.  I still need to cut out most of the pieces for the other 2 arcs.  Then I need to cut out a ton of the background pieces too.  I was a little nervous about piecing curves, but they weren't bad at all.

One More

My goodness.  I've now pieced two baby boy quilts in two weekends.  This one is all flannel and more babyish than the other.  It will be backed in a light blue Minky dimple dot after I get some batting. 

Another Boy Quilt

This quilt was made entirely of fabrics and batting from my stash - love that!  The pattern is in the book Growing Up Modern  by Cluck Cluck Sew's Allison Harrison.  Great book and fun quilt to make!

Boy Quilt

This quilt was also made up entirely from fabrics in my stash (and one from Mom - thanks!).  It's also an Allison Harris pattern (Cluck Cluck Sew).  Quick and fun!

Kaylee, Tiny Quilter

Little K wanted to make herself a quilt.  She chose all of the fabrics and designed everything herself.  We had a lot of fun making this together and I am beyond thrilled that she's loving playing with fabric and quilting.

Melanie's Quilt

Mel wanted a new quilt, so we worked together and made her one.  She chose all of the pink fabrics (still her favorite color) and I chose the rest.  I cannot say enough how much i looooooooove the outer border on this quilt.  It's a Kaffe Fasset print and I don't think it could be more perfect.  The Sandi Henderson binding is so pretty too.  It was fun making such a girly quilt with all the girly colors in it.  The quilting was super fun to do also.  A little time-consuming, but it was a blast.
