Candy Coated

candy quilt - 1
This quilt was a gift for a one year old’s birthday. It was a quick project scrap based on the Candy Coated Pattern in Sunday Morning Quilts. It finished 36 inches by 45 inches.

I rarely machine quilt and when I do, I feel like I’m ruining the quilt top. However, I hardly have time to piece a top, let alone hand quilt these days so it was machine quilting for this gift. I used a free-motion foot and quilted in wavy lines, but the stitch length is uneven and there are jagged points when I stopped to re-position the quilt. But once it’s washed and loved it won’t really matter.

Pink Triangles

2016 became a bit busier for us this fall when our second daughter joined our family. I made this triangle quilt for her, and am taking her monthly baby photos on it.

It’s made of simple triangles and was hand quilted in each triangles. There are many Alison Glass fabrics from a color bundle I ordered.

It’s similar to our first daughter’s baby quilt but this time I finished this one much more quickly.

Here’s what I’ve been sewing and knitting lately.

Lots of dresses for my little girl.  This was a set of matching dresses for all the girl cousins as well.  Many more that go right into the drawer and then in the wash and round and round again.img_6017

Another heart quilt which hangings in my daughter’s room.




A twin-sized Plus Quilt for my daughter’s new bed.


And I finally finished knitting this sweater for myself. It got a blue ribbon at the local fair.

Heart Quilt

heart quilt 2
This quilt was a graduation gift the came together quickly based on this pattern, with fabric from my stash. I re-worked the dimensions of the quilt by making the hearts 4″ square rather than the 2″ or 5″ in the original pattern. The finished quilt was around 50 x 60.

I machine quilted on the diagonal in a ‘V’ pattern and bound it with strips of the various colors.

It was done in less than 3 weeks!
