Little Bits.

This quilt was one of the Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts projects.  I used a green and white dot and various black and white prints from my stash for the front and a Lizzy House Castle Peeps print and scraps for the back.  It’s quilted in a swirly pattern with pale green thread and bound in a diagonal black plaid with a couple little green bits.  It measures 36″ x 47″

Hope Valley in blue.

This quilt is made with the cool colorway of Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley collection and Kona cotton in navy and charcoal.  It’s backed in Valori Wells’ roses urban flannel and some scraps and bound in a green solid from my stash with a few more scraps.  It measures 44″ x 68″

Belle baby.

This commission was to be centered around a tree design and is made of Lotta Jansdotter’s Belle collection and some coordinating prints from my stash.  It’s backed in leftover pieces from the front, quilted in a meandering pattern on my home machine with pale grey thread, bound in Scattered Dots in Charcoal, and labeled with a tag. It measures 50″ x 60″

Happy Birthday, Amanda.

This quilt was a commission for my friend’s birthday, from her husband and his parents.  He told me her favorite color is yellow and I went from that.  The pattern is based on Ice Pops from Denyse Schmidt Quilts and is made with Indie by Pat Bravo and some solids from FreeSpirit.  It’s quilted with a loops and leaves pattern in khaki thread, bound in mustard, and labeled.  It measures approximately 86″ x 98″

Happy birthday, Kyle.

This quilt was a commission for my friend Charla’s husband for his birthday.  She gathered these old shirts of bands he’s been in and other beloveds.  I backed all the shirts in French fuse and paired them with fabric from my stash.  I did a pillowcase closure on it with a green thrifted sheet as the backing and labeled it.  It measures approximately 50″ x 56″

For Silas.

My friend Ashley and I made this quilt for our friends Austin and Erin and their baby boy Silas.  We improv pieced two blocks each using my blue, green, grey, and brown scraps and then I set them in Kona Slate and backed it with more scraps.  I quilted it with a square spiral in each block and echoed lines in the negative space with a matching grey and bound it in an Amy Butler stripe.  They loved it more than I could have hoped for!

The Undertoad.

This quilt quickly became one of my favorites and is named as a reference to “The World According to Garp.”  It is the third commissioned quilt for three childhood friends.  Taylor and Casey received theirs at Christmas and this was finished just in time for Erik’s birthday. It’s made up of Kona solids and a couple crossweaves in blues and greens.  It’s backed in scraps, Lotta Jansdotter, Heath, and a habitat print, long arm quilted in a cloud pattern with pale blue thread, bound in a shot cotton stripe, and labeled.  It measures approximately 85″ x 85″.

Zig Zag.

This is one of three quilts for my friend’s nieces using a charm pack I received from Quilt Dad in a mini quilt swap, a couple prints from my stash, and Manatee grey from FreeSpirit.  It’s backed in dots in pink from Urban Flannel by Valori Wells flannel and a strip with pieced letters, quilted in echoing zig zags with dark grey thread, bound in a pale pink stripe from my stash, and labelled.  I can’t wait for the girls to receive them!


Square in a Square.

This is number two of three quilts for my friend’s nieces using a jelly roll of Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom I bought at Material Girls in Salt Lake City and a few Kona cotton solids from my stash.  It’s backed in Diamond Mine flannel in sweet from Folksy Flannels by Anna Maria Horner and a strip with pieced letters, quilted in an orange peel pattern inspired by Sew Katie Did with pale yellow thread, bound in light yellow with a strip of berry, and labelled.  I’ll definitely be making another quilt like this soon!

Disappearing Nine Patch.

This is number three of three quilts for my friend’s niece using most of my Denyse Schmidt stash.  It’s pretty crazy and really hectic but I hope it’s loved!  It is a disappearing nine patch pattern, it’s backed in roses in pink from Urban Flannel by Valori Wells and a strip of pieced letters, quilted in a simple crosshatch pattern in pale grey thread, bound in two DS Quilts navy prints, and labelled.
