Flea Market Fancy Banner Quilt

As I mentioned in my last post, that whole banner quilt pattern I was working on didn’t turn out so hot on the first try. I really wanted to have this finished by First Friday so I can show it off. I did it in a bit of a hurry, but took time to make sure everything was just right and record all of my steps so I can make a really good pattern for it.

I am sort of in love with this one. Here is the top (that I managed to crank out in just a few hours). I think Oliver (one of the kitties that lives in my yard) liked it too but wasn’t too keen on having her photo taken.

And here is the finished quilt.

And the back.

I am finishing up writing the pattern for this quilt and plan on having it for sale in my shop pretty soon.

I think I’ll be slowing down quite a bit since my break is almost over and I’ll be heading back to work. I’m really happy with everything that I completed though!

Pennant quilt and possible pattern

I finished up this lovely quilt top while at Downtown Sewcial at Crimson Tate last weekend. Heather posted a picture of it on her facebook and it’s gotten a lot of attention. People asking if it’s a class or a pattern they can buy. It’s just something I whipped up. Anyway, I am working on getting it finished so I can write a pattern for it and get it sold!

Would any of you be interested in a pattern?

Baby Shower

The baby shower was lovely. It was a beautiful day and the decoration ended up matching the flowering trees. Here is a terrible photo of the paper lanterns and paper garland that I made. It looked way better in person, I promise.

Adorable and delicious cupcakes.

And the quilt was adored by all.

And now for some more works in progress.

This has been sitting in a box FOREVER. I’ve had the blocks made for a while and just never put them together. This is 12 of the blocks and I have 9 more. I think I am just going to turn it into two small quilts instead of one larger quilt.

This second quilt top is my own design and I love how it turned out.

That’s all for now. I plan on having a lot to post while I am on break so check back again soon!

Banner Quilt – Work in Progress

As if I don’t have enough projects going on, I started another quilt! I bought a couple fat quarters because I liked how they looked together. I didn’t have any plans for them. I started doodling and drawing and decided they would be perfect for this quilt I came up with.

It’s changed a little since then. I think it will be three rows of banners, all in the same direction.

Here’s the basic layout. I plan on spacing them out more, I was just figuring out their order. What do you think?
