Quilt the Book : Unconditional

over the summer i finished my fourth Quilt the Book series! i am using the book Quilts Made with Love by Rachel Griffith, this pattern is called Unconditional. since we had a wedding for my husband's best man this past summer i knew i was going to make a quilt and this was the perfect fit.

this quilt was another stash buster. all of the fabric minus the background came from my stash. i love when i can create a quilt from my stash.

and since i finished this one right before gifting, i only have the one picture. this was a fun challenge for me to finish this before my deadline. 

i love HST, but after sewing and trimming 300 of them, i was less than thrilled. i love that they are so versatile, but man they can take some time to create. that is something i plan on working on this coming year, just to enjoy the process and take it one step at a time. 

this was just a fun project quilt to work on and i hope the happy couple love it for years to come. 

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Unconditional from Quilts Made with Love
Dimensions: 72 inches x 72 inches
Quilting: Straight line crosshatch
Fabric: various fabrics from my stash

  1. That is such a beautiful quilt! I love your use of rainbow colors against the negative space, and the pop of black works great here!

  2. What a cool design! Those colors really pop against that white background. I'm sure this quilt will be loved and used for many years to come.

  3. What book are you quilting through? I love HST's also but I wonder how it would be for me to trim through 300+ of them. There are so many methods available to do them, I will give several methods a try on my next HST project to see which suits me best.

Mini Modern Maples Cushion Cover | Scrap Project 6

Ahh, I just love fall! Hands down my favorite season, especially in the UP. There are a few leaves starting to change color and I'm so excited. I'm looking forward to a color tour in a few weeks and really hope I have a few quilts done so I can take some quilt in the wild photos. So with fall rolling in, I figured I would make a fun little fall inspired cushion cover. And since I've been on small scale sewing kick, I thought a mini modern maple cover was just what I needed for my living room. Plus, lets face it this was just a perfect reason to dig through the scrap bins and use up those small little scraps. My mini maple block finishes at 3 inches and when added to a mini 9 patch block it makes for a lovely scrappy cushion cover. For the quilting a did a orange peel design and while a little wonky, I love it! Lately I've been at a lose as to what I want to quilt on my quilts, so this was a nice change. I quilted this cover on my Janome HD9. This bab

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye

Let's Catch Up | A Couple of Rainbow Quilts

2020 has been one hell of a year! I am trying to make my way back to this space, but I know it will be hit or miss as we get ready to move in a couple of weeks! During my time away I spend a lot of it helping my kiddo with school and stitching up a bunch of new quilts. I still can't believe it has been 2.5 years since we moved to the Upper Peninsula. Now we are moving again, staying in the U.P, just moving closer to my job working at a quilt shop. So of course my oldest daughter wanted to give her two friends quilts before we move, so that meant I needed to get quilting. This first quilt was made with my 2.5 inch square stash. I originally sewed 16-patch blocks, but wanted more of a punch, so I sewed 4, 16-patch blocks together to make one large block. Since I wanted to create a rainbow spectrum, I added the sashing and finished with a border. I love how this one turned out and Nora's friend loved it. One of the perks of my job is access to a long arm machine! I am really start
