Opinions and more!

Thanks for your opinions on my binding color!  I will be shopping for my  binding this week and appreciate all your comments.  It’s helpful to get lots of ideas and it’s fun to see how we all approach color and pattern.

Congratulations, Meg our-house-quilts!  You won the drawing for the American Made Brand patriotic 5″ squares package.  Send a comment to me with your address ( I won’t publish your comment) and I will drop your prize in the mail tomorrow morning.

This weekend was a good sewing weekend for me.  I have lots of projects in the hopper and I am feeling a bit stressed about having so many things unfinished.

I’m making a baby quilt for our niece;  she is expecting a girl!  Last year I posted about a fast, adorable baby quilt from a pattern called “4 B’s”.  You can read more about it here.

I predicted more of these quilts would be in my future…now I get to make one in pink!  These are the fabrics I am using for the center and borders 1 and 2.  The sparkly stars add some shine.


Below is a photo with the flannel outer border which is also the backing.  I love the polka dot flannel because it’s so soft and cozy.  I just have to quilt this tonight and I can check this off my list!


One project down, 8 more to go!

Vintage Find

Mom was helping friends clean out their house and move into an assisted living facility.  In the process of cleaning, they found this sweet, vintage baby quilt that needed a loving home.  I gladly stepped up to honor this work of art.  I keep it on this rocking chair that belonged to my great grandmother when she was a child in the 1870’s!


The artist is unknown as the quilt does not have a label!  This is a good lesson for me because I often wish I could skip the label step…but who will know I created quilting masterpieces if I don’t label my work?

This quilt measures 34 inches square and was hand embroidered, machine pieced and machine quilted.  The embroidery is well done and very detailed.  The colors have remained vibrant over the years.  The fawn and the kitten are two of my favorite blocks but the puppy is very cute too…those furry ears are flopping in the wind!



I think the french knot buttons are special.  How about that house on the left with the red chimney and smoke drifting up into the sky?


Of course we have a Sunbonnet Sue!  She’s pushing her baby carriage through a flower garden.  More cute details to admire!


Here is the entire quilt on display.


I am going to add a hanging sleeve to this so I can use it as an inspirational wall hanging in my sewing room!  It seems like every time I look at it, I see another detail that makes me smile!

Misc. Monday


Our niece and her husband were expecting their first baby and they knew it was a boy.  I came across the cutest baby blanket quilt in one of my favorite quilt shops.  The fabric line is based on the book “Guess How Much I Love You”  by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram.  I bought the kit and had so much fun making the blanket from these adorable wovens and flannels.  I bought the book and added it to the gift package….it was a hit!


The pattern I used was designed by one of the quilt shop team members.  It is called 4 B’s which stands for “Binding, Batting, Baby Blanket”.  The finished size is perfect for a receiving blanket.  It is also a nice size to lay on the floor with the baby and a few toys, under the watchful eye of mom or grandma of course!


It’s nice to have a pattern like this on hand.  The blanket went together quickly and I got to practice some of my quilting stitches.



This was such a fun and fast project, I predict more will be in my future!
