I decided at the last minute to make a teacher's gift for my son's Kindergarten teacher.
I finished it in two days! I used (42) 10" print squares and (84) 4.5" white squares. Place the white squares on opposite sides of the print square and sew corner to corner. Trim, leaving 1/4" seam allowance.
Ta-da! Insta-quilt! I love that it's really simple to put together, but still looks like I put some effort forth!
I even had some backing fabric on hand that was from the same designer as the prints on the front!
The quilting went quickly since I got to use my baby (my Tiara). I'm working on a video review of that by the way! I've made the video, I just have to write the post! Is there anything stranger than listening to yourself on film? I end up sounding like a Southern Elle Woods or something. ha ha!
After trimming the corners from the quilt at the top, I had all these perfectly matched triangles of prints/neutral all ready to sew! I whipped out this baby quilt in no time!
I'd been wondering what to do with that yard of Meadow Sweet 2! Perfect backing!
I opted for a coral linen binding for this one. I like the added texture.
I also quilted more densely than I do on larger quilts. Makes for an extra crinkly, cuddly quilt! This one will go in my Etsy shop soon.
Last week I finished two custom quilts for the utterly adorable and completely sweet Kelle Boyd (designer Ann Kelle). She lives really close to me so I'm a convient quilt monkey. :)
I adore pixelated hearts! This one has a completely different look than my last one, but I love it! It's bright and fresh and summery!
I used the Remix zig zag print and cut it on the bias for the binding. I usually don't make bias binding, but I had a feeling this would turn out cool (and I was right!) It sort of reminds me of a Greek key pattern. Just love it!
I also designed and made this ballerina quilt for Kelle (Ann Kelle). I based it off of THIS quilt by Kati. I'm not sure if Kati used a pattern, but I designed one to fit the dimensions of the ballerinas. Doesn't it look like candy? I love all the solids!
And there are loads of ballerinas on the back too! This fabric line is just too stinkin' cute!!!!
I'm also making some progress on my pillow for PTS10! I just have to decide how I'm going to quilt it! Decisions, decisions!
