Twin baby quilts

I finished up a pair of cute baby quilts for a commission.  For twins who are on the way!  I made a couple of pillow sleeves to go along with ‘em too.

Why can’t I ever coordinate photo taking with no fold lines in the quilts??

These were fun to sew up. I haven’t been working with lots of white or these colors in awhile so it was fun to go back to them for a project!

On another note, a dear friend of mine is a finalist for the Dwell Room for Improvement contest. You don’t have sign in or anything to vote for her, so please do! It just takes two quick clicks and a free living room make over could be hers so vote for her! Thank you, thank you!

A finish!

It’s been awhile since I’ve finished a quilt that wasn’t on a deadline.  It was nice. Some friends who are having a baby girl are getting this one!

This quilt confirmed for me that I am not as much of a fan of the washed crinkled look when the quilt isn’t stippled. Stippling leads to a nice even all over crinkle, but other quilting… not so much.

Quilting Detail

I’ve been trying to stretch myself and NOT stipple quilts… it’s hard for me! But there’s inspiration everywhere. I saw this photo shoot with Megan Fox recently.  Do you think others are obsessively looking at the quilting too??

Happy Monday!

And finished!

I know you all just saw this quilt top – but it’s now finished!

Neutrals Quilt

I ended up binding it in black (this is my first use of black in a quilt ever) and I’m really happy with the outcome.

And of course I did another of my usual pieced backs:

I really enjoyed working in all neutrals, but now back to color!!

Overwhelmed.

I’m feeling crazy busy these days.  A tad too busy, but when it’s all quilting all the time that’s keeping you that way, how can you complain??

A quick little class sample for an Improv. class that I’ll be teaching at Common Threads Studio in Pasadena.

And why am I currently so obsessed with the color combo of gray and raspberry?? I can’t get enough!

Ok back to the sewing machine I go!

So busy these days that this is my first finish of 2010. A cute and simple baby quilt for some friends who are expecting but don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl. Their first baby got this quilt, so the idea was that the quilts are different but still sort of match.

Dots & Critters Baby Quilt

I had a great time drawing attention to all of the little critters with the quilting.

It’s so much fun to put together baby quilts quickly. I might have to do that a couple more times before I tackle another bed quilt.
