Lovely Floral Quilt : A Finished Quilt

A proud moment for me, I finished all of the projects on my proposed Q2 for the 2016 Finish-a-Long!!!

I love how this little quilt turned out for my youngest daughter. I used a couple of charm parks of the Regent Street Lawns from Moda and some chambray fabric for the background and this is such a snuggly quilt.


At 44 inches square this is the perfect size for my 15 month old daughter to use on her bed. Plus it will be a great quilt to snuggle with when she graduates to a twin size bed instead of the little toddler bed.


For the quilting I did a serpentine stitch on my machine, evenly spacing them out. Then added in a highlight cross hatch section. And I love how it turned out. Some of my favorite quilting motifs can be done with a walking foot and I love that. Not that I don't enjoy free motion quilting, but there is something about a simple or fairly simple quilting design.

A Framed Bumble : A Finished Quilt

I just love checking off a quilt from my WIP list!

A former co-worker will be retiring this week from working at my first library I ever worked for. So my mom (who also works there) asked me to make a quilt. We chose the fabric together and my mom picked out the Framed pattern from Simply Retro.

I love how stunning this quilt looks. The gray background really works well with Tula Pink's Bumble collection. Gray is really becoming a new go to for background, white is fine, but gray is my favorite right now.


For the quilting I did a combination of FMQ and some straight line with my walking foot. I stitched the sashing to help stabilize the quilt sandwich. Then did some FMQ in the framed squares doing a square in a square pattern.


All ready for gifting. I love having the ability to create a quilt for a retirement gift. I'm sure this quilt will be cherished for years to come.
