It’s that time of year when winter starts to drag on a bit.  I thought I would brighten things up a bit with a sale.

five quilts, one post

Last year I set myself up with a long project list.  By mid-year I had started several quilts but hadn’t finished most of them so by December I was determined to cross some off the list.  blue sky geese quilt

 

The idea for sky blue geese came from a doodle in my notebook.  It has blue and ivory cross-hatch print flying geese blocks surrounded by text prints.  I sent it as a surprise to a friend I haven’t seen in years.

The back is mix of prints.  The blue and white plumes were a favorite of mine.  They’ve been in my stash for years so it’s great to see them in a project.

silver star quilt

I made a couple of Christmas quilts in December.  I used a scaled down version of Jeni’s Giant Vintage Star Tutorial. They were also given to friends.

gold star quilt

One was a large silver star, the other gold.

florette quilt

Florette turned out to be one of my favorite quilts to date.  The pattern is by Jeni Baker.

Anna, Jeni, and I took a screen printing class ages ago and while they were here they helped me pull fabrics for future projects.  It was a blast to spend hours happily geeking out over fabric with friends.  I used one of the stacks we put together for this quilt.   Then I finished the top while we were on a sewing retreat together.

The back is one part, grey and white paisley and one part, floral.  Truth be told…the floral was our old shower curtain.  I made the curtain a few years ago and saved the fabric when I made a new one.  I had intended to sell this quilt, but in the end, I surprised lulu by putting it on her bed while she was in school.  She nearly fell down the steps to thank me because she was so happy.  (that would have been an awkward ER visit!)

golden geese quilt

Golden geese was another quilt I intended to sell.  It was also a stack that Anna and Jeni helped pull together.  The pattern is of my own design. I love the fabrics, so much print on print on print.  I just couldn’t part with it.  I have greedily kept it for myself.  (that’s how i roll)

It’s backed with some fabric from my stash.  It felt great to check all of these of my project list.

I’m looking forward to sharing more about this year’s list.

little apples quilt

front of little apples quiltI finished a bunch of quilts last month.  It was an effort to work through a good chunk of my 2014 project list before I started my 2015 list.

side of little apples print

This quilt went together extra quick.  It’s made with a pre-cut layer cake and then some yardage for the back.  The prints on the front are all for Aneela Hoey’s little apples line.  I love the trees and little hedgehogs.  The wardrobe print is one of my all-time favorite fabrics.   I machine quilted it with a pale grey thread with organic matchstick lines along the diagonals.

I added some coordinating cardinals to the back.  They just looked so cute with the rest of the prints.

I’ve listed in my etsy shop and I’m hoping it finds a nice new home with someone who loves it as much as I do.
