{ Three (small) Finishes }

Last winter I finished  my Charming Stars quilt, made with Snowman Gatherings II 
from Primitive Gatherings. 
I had leftover charm squares and had purchased extra yardage for pillow backs. 
Over the past couple of weeks I found time to put together
 three 20x20 throw pillows for our den couch. 
I love this fabric!

{ Time Flies and Some Finishes }


Even though I haven't posted any finishes here in 9 MONTHS, I have been doing some sewing. I finished two quilt tops which I won't show until they've been quilted and bound. 

I'm going to become a great-aunt for the second time and 
new baby Ella needs a quilt.



This quilt finished at 52x52
The fabric is Little Miss Sunshine by Lella Boutique
The pattern is a freebie called Flower Girl from Moda Bake Shop.

Another finished quilt will be gifted this weekend.  It's a combination birthday-housewarming gift for my sister-in-law.

I actually finished a Christmas quilt before Christmas. I had been hoarding this fabric and saving this pattern for the right time. This quilt will be gifted to my step daughter who loves to cuddle under our quilts when she visits. It was time she had her own.

Fabric is Flurry by Kate Spain. Included a panel with some elements used in the quilt.

This was a fun quilt to make. I don't usually make a throw quilt pattern more than once, but I can see another Flurry quilt in my future.

{ Charming Stars }


Since the new year began, I've made two 38x52 baby plus quilts.



Shame on me for not taking photos of the them but they are identical to these quilts made previously. I was really lucky to have enough leftover fabric from the earlier projects to make two more. 
I even had enough coordinating backing fabric. {High five}

I also completed the Charming Stars quilt top.  The pattern is a freebie at Moda Bake Shop. It uses three charm packs and the blocks are a breeze to make. This pattern would make a great baby boy quilt (less blocks) or a QOV quilt with some red, white and blue fabric.





The fabric is Snowman Gatherings II by Primitive Gatherings.
After I took these photos I added two more borders, pieced the backing, and boxed it up for its trip to Utah for quilting.
When she gets back, I'll take more photos.

{ Manly Log Cabin -is there any other kind? }

This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my husband. 
Yeah, right.
As soon as the final stitch was in the binding, it was in the wash and dryer. 
While it was still warm, I presented him with an early Christmas gift. 
He seemed very pleased, which makes me happy.

I may be using flannel backings more often. It really makes for a cozy quilt.

{ I Have Quilter's ADD }

I'm really wondering if this condition exists.
Just a two days ago I picked fabric for my next quilt project, 
Sweet Marie by Woodberry Way.
I put a photo up on Instagram showing the pretty 
Vintage Picnic fabric and the pattern.
I even went so far as to iron all my fat quarters in preparation for 
cutting on my next free evening.



Then by last night ,I decided this is a very springy collection of fabrics and since the winter is coming I need to make a winter quilt.

Oh look! I have the perfect alternative. Snowman Gatherings II by Primitive Gatherings.



As of now, this is my next project. I'm going to get started right away so I don't change my mind again.
