Quilt 022 – Baby Neva

My sister found out she was having a little girl so I started looking for inspiration. So much of quilting for me is having inspirations. Without it, I find it is so hard to get through it, or even finish it. It becomes a chore instead of a hobby I enjoy. My sister  doesn’t like… Continue reading Quilt 022 – Baby Neva

Quilt 019 – Patriotic Swoon Quilt

Long time, no blog post! It has been a crazy busy past two years, filled with some of the best times, and unfortunately also some of the hardest times. My quilting fell to the back burner, but I still made small progress here and there. My next posts are going to jump around on the… Continue reading Quilt 019 – Patriotic Swoon Quilt

Vintage Quilt Series – Part 6

I had to save one for last, and I chose this one! I think this is the oldest one out of all her quilts, and it is completey hand pieced and hand quilted! I love hexagon quilts, and they take so much time to do. This pattern is a variation of grandmothers garden. All of… Continue reading Vintage Quilt Series – Part 6

Quilt 013 – Charlee

My first quilt of 2016 is DONE! (I finished it a couple weeks ago, but I had to wait for them to get it!) I know, I know, another HST quilt, but what can I say… I LOVE them. Simple beauty. A K-State Alumni baby is on the way, and I knew that purple was… Continue reading Quilt 013 – Charlee

Quilt 000 – The Beginning

As I was digging around looking for something, I came across my actual first quilt, actually there were two. I made them when I was about 9 or 10. I realize Quilt 001 says that it is my first quilt, but that is only partially true. It was my first quilt to make in 20… Continue reading Quilt 000 – The Beginning

Quilt 012 – Dalton

After working on Quilt 011, I needed a quilt that was a little easier to piece together. I really loved the herringbone design I did on Quilt 002. It is so flexible for boys or girls. My nephew LOVES orange. This is one quilt that didn’t need a pop of orange because it IS orange!… Continue reading Quilt 012 – Dalton

Quilt 011 – Aubrey

It has been a while since I have posted! Mostly just because I couldn’t really post the next two quilts since they are Christmas presents for my niece and nephew. It took a long time to find a design I really liked for Aubrey’s quilt. I knew she wanted pink. She loves pink. I found… Continue reading Quilt 011 – Aubrey

Quilt 009 & 010 – Raylan

My sister is having her first baby so it gave me another reason to quilt some more! I found this inspiration quilt on Pinterest. I immediately went to fabric.com and started finding different plaids. It took some time but I eventually decided I liked a blue/green color scheme with a pop of orange. I mean… Continue reading Quilt 009 & 010 – Raylan

Quilt 008 – Quilts for Kids

I heard about Quilts for Kids and thought this was a perfect way to utilize my quilting skills after I ran out of babies to make quilts for at the moment. They send you the fabric and pattern, and you just sew it all together! I got my fabric in the mail, and started getting it put… Continue reading Quilt 008 – Quilts for Kids

Quilt 007

I saw this quilt on Pinterest, and immediately liked that it was a “cleaner” version of the rag quilts. It is very simple. You cut out three sizes of squares (9, 6, & 3 inches). The hardest part was laying it out and evenly distributing the colors. Sheets at target were on clearance, so I grabbed a… Continue reading Quilt 007

Quilt 005 – TBD & 006 – Jude

I made the mistake and went to the fabric store down the road to just “browse”. Well I found a jelly roll I just completely fell in love with. I am a solid fabric kind of gal, but this camping fabric was just too perfect. These two quilts were created using Moda Jelly Rolls (S’more… Continue reading Quilt 005 – TBD & 006 – Jude

Quilt 004 – Arya

This quilt is a copycat of quilt 001. I found these inspirational quilts from Pinterest (Here, Here, and Here). I used the same pink flannel, but used a Kona solid green fabric on the front. It went beautifully with the pink/orange flower fabric I found on fabric.com.

Quilt 003 – Amante

I enjoyed making the previous HSQ quilt so much, I decided to make another one. This time it was for my friend’s son’s little boy. I used the same teal sheet from my first quilt, and mixed in some green fabric. I found the white fabric fat quarters from Joann’s. They had white-on-white design to… Continue reading Quilt 003 – Amante

Quilt 002 – Piper

My cousin was having her first baby, so it was a perfect opportunity to get started on my second quit. I started seeing several of these herringbone quilts on Pinterest (Here and Here). I loved the simple clean look of the quilt, but with a little twist in pattern. I decided this would make the perfect quilt… Continue reading Quilt 002 – Piper

Quilt 001 – Gwenyth – My FIRST Quilt!

I have wanted to quilt for a long time. My mother taught me to sew when I was around 10. A couple years ago, my mother gave me a sewing machine for christmas. It was a Pfaff 1473 just like I used to sew on when I was younger. The first thing I created was a… Continue reading Quilt 001 – Gwenyth – My FIRST Quilt!
