For The Love of Ducks :)


My great niece who is just 13 months old LOVES duck lol.  She has a blast feeding bread to them with her grandparents.  So I just couldn't pass up this duck fleece and fabric at Hobby Lobby.


I have to admit, that premade satin binding was a big PAIN to work with lol.  But I love how the edges feel with it on them. 

I had some duck fabric left over, so I thought she could use a little quilted bag of her own to carry around. :)


Birthday Quilt

I made a quilt for my best friend's birthday, and I am sooo pleased how it turned out, she was too, she cried when I gave it to her. :)

I used the High Street, by Lily Ashbury for Moda layer cake and some extra yardage for border and binding.  I used this Missouri Star Quilt Co's Big Star Quilt tutorial,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkm3nCferp4



It had 3 more star blocks I could have added and made it longer, but that was too much for me to quilt on my Singer 201.  It turned out almost 100 inches square when I added the border.

New Tote :)


I made another jelly roll tote, this one for myself for carrying quilting supplies to retreats.  I love how it turned out, and how roomy it is, I followed Missouri Star Quilt Company's Big Bag Tutorial,   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H15z26_HiJY

and I added a zipper using this tutorial  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H15z26_HiJY


                                      I also added inner pockets. It is quite a large bag.

Monster Trucks!!

I had a lot of fun making this easy Monster Truck Mania quilt for a soon to be born sweet boy.  It was simply a panel with borders, binding and backing from the same line added.  The line is super cute too.  It is by Desiree's Designs for Quilting Treasures.


I had left over fabric from it so I found this tutorial for a travel diaper changing pad and decided to give it a try https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_ErCuDlIjc   It was much easier than I expected and I like how it turned out.  If I make another, I will use a fluffier batting to make it more cushy.

Fat Quarter Shop's 2014 Designer Mystery Block-1

Yes, yes I know, I still haven't finished the 2013 Designer Mystery Blocks, BUT I just had to make this one when it came in the mail, it is sooo pretty!  The only part that was tricky for me was matching up the seams for the inner star points.  Had to do some seam ripping a few times, but that is nothing new for me lol.

Pumpkin Pin Cushion

I made this for a friend a while back, I believe it is a Sweetheart Tree design.  I love fall and pumpkins!
