Pocket Pixies Baby Quilt

Posted on August 30th, by Amy in embroidery, finished quilt. 11 comments

A quick finish for a sweet new baby!

I actually haven’t met her, but I assume she’s sweet, she’s a baby girl!

I added her name and birthday in embroidery, and couldn’t resist tracing the fabric in thread.

I bound it by machine, so it can be used and washed again and again.  And generally had fun working with these sweet fabrics!

The quilting is random, and whimsical just like all the fabrics in the quilt.  I backed it with Kona Amethyst, and used three strands of rose floss for the embroidery.

I think my favorite part is the embroidery – what’s yours?

Doll Quilt Swap – Sent!

Posted on August 17th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, finished quilt. 19 comments

Hi there!  Here’s the final look at my Doll Quilt Swap -

It measures 16″ overall, with each star measuring just 4 inches!  I used a variety of  green fabrics set off by Kona ash, and white.

On the back you can see my quilting a bit more.  I followed the lines I marked, and went around the center square a couple times to get all the “arms” of the windmill quilted.    I was so glad to see it come together so well!

I’m thinking up a larger version of this block/quilt – maybe it cold be a fun quilt along!?  Anyone want to practice paper piecing?  I need to get my kids back to school, but it might be a fun fall/winter project working with scraps.  What do you think?

Modern Basics :: Quilts

Posted on March 7th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Basics. 32 comments

I found a sunny day at last, and had an hour to spare outside with my quilts!

All 14 of them is a lot to carry, and get hung, but I’m so glad that I did.

Did you notice the new header?

This is a picture heavy post!  I thought I would share the name and a detail or two for each quilt.

Basic Ease ~ One block turned – great first project!

There’s so many more pictures that I could share with you!  All of the quilting was done by Natalia, and it’s fantastic!  Natalia quilts via the mail too (hint, hint!) if you ever need something quilted by a pro.

If you did not win a copy of Modern Basics last week during the tour, I have a few autographed … Read More »
