Happy Birthday to the Kid behind the Quilts

Meet lil’Bro!

He is the kid behind the quilts. The awesome little brother who willingly goes outside to hold my 500 pound quilts above his head while I snap picture after picture. The one who tries to enjoy his music while I shout “Higher! Hold it higher!”  The not so little, lil’Bro who is turning a whopping 17! “Quilt” growing up! (a little sewing humor there for you.)

Happy Birthday lil’Bro!

Quilt number Two

Guess what my folksies!

I have officially finished quilt number two of 2016!

Puff Quilt

It’s a puff quilt and its puffiness is beyond my comprehension! Can I just roll up into a ball and hibernate with this thing? I mean, it’s four kinds of minky fabric, filled with polyester stuffing, and then cut so it frays into the ultimate fluffiest thing ever!

And it’s PINK….so that adds a handful of more awesomeness.

I made it for a co-worker to give to a friend who is having a little baby girl!

Enjoy, my folks!

First Quilt of 2016

Welp, it’s finally done! My first quilt of 2016. To tell you the truth, this quilt technically wasn’t made completely by me…

Are you confused? Some slight backstory:

‘someone at my church was told I could quilt and without hesitation she brought a couple quilts the next Sunday to show and ask if I could finish them. Her grandmother had HAND stitched the entire front of the quilt (that’s by HAND people!)

One of the quilts was a yoyo quilt and I told her: that one was supposed to not have a back, but the quilt you are about to see I did take that day. Her grandmother had made the entire front and even hand stitched on the binding, but no batting or back.’

I brought back fabric samples and she fell in love with the one below. I took off the old binding and pieced the back together. I pin basted the whole thing and used the “tie” method to quilt it. It was quite a project and I finally finished hand stitching on the new binding. It was such an exciting quilt to finish and if her grandmother was here today, I’m sure she would be proud :)

The fabric is still fun and colorful, but not to much so that it takes away from the beautiful handmade butterflies.

Enjoy!

A Quilt a Month: November

Okay!

Here it is, like I promised! My November Quilt!

So this picture was actually taken later than November because, well, no reason at all actually. The customer who bought this quilt ordered it in October but has not been able to pick it up yet. Just recently (March 2016) I decided to add a label on it and go ahead and take pictures. So besides the label just added recently, this quilt was actually done during November.

The back is pink satin and minky fabric.

Simply lovely
