Progress all around.

Getting started on the next baby quilt that will be half of a set for twin girls.

Beginnings of next baby quilt

Almost done with all of Cate’s patio pillows and cushions! So far so good but the huge cushion I will be tackling tomorrow… we’ll see!

Progress on Cate's patio pillows!

And I got this quilted! Just have to get the binding on now.

Birds & Blooms quilted

Feels great to be getting lots done!

Labels.

I’ve decided it’s way past time to be labeling my quilts – but didn’t have the patience to wait the time it would take to get them made before finishing my last quilt, so I embroidered one!

Tag in Progress

Tag

I figure that it’s not like I make so many quilts that I can’t manage to make a tag for each one, right?  I like the result and I think that it sticks with the “handmade” idea.  Plus, I really like the idea that I can change the colors and the label can match the quilt.  I’m thinking this might become my standard way of labelling! Quilts at least… for other items, it would be too labor intensive…

Here it is!  All finished! There’s nothing like pulling a finished quilt out of the dryer and finally getting to see it in its fully crinkled glory.

Stacked Coin Quilt

It’s the biggest quilt I’ve free motioned.  I luckily don’t seem to have that many struggles with shoving a big ol’ quilt around in my sewing machine.  Maybe I just don’t know better, but I seem to manage alright.  I don’t roll the quilt (much) but I bunch and shove it all over the place.

This quilt was based on my Gender Neutral Baby Quilt but full sized, and the color scheme is similar, but somewhat more “adult”. I’m happy with the results and I hope its owner will be too!!

And three fun log cabin blocks for the back!

Finished up these fun colorful blocks yesterday.

Finished Blocks

I’m happy with how they came out.  I thought I might be mixing and matching too many different fabrics, but there are a lot of florals and I think the combo of that and the solids ties them all together.  I anticipate doing my usual white sashing and framing but I need to figure out if I’m going to leave the blocks different sizes or trim them down to all be the same size… hmm… Decisions decisions!

There will probably be a bit of radio silence from me for the coming week as I was put on a jury for a trial that will last all week.  However, the days are short so I’m hoping to get a lot of my sister’s curtains and pillows done through out the week!
