Slow Stitching Sunday

I am working on binding a sweet baby quilt. It has been a while since I got to make a baby quilt and it is great to do it again. It was a cute kit that was on sale last summer from my LQS. I had thought about making it into a larger size quilt but when I found out a friend was having a baby girl I remembered it and quickly made it in the summertime.

Kaleidoscope Quilt

My Kaleidoscope quilt was finished last Fall but I only put on the label today.  Even though I called this "the little quilt that could" it was hard to let go and say it was all done. I had a ruler that I used to cut the wedges and a different pattern I used for the placing of darks and light fabrics. After I had sized my blocks I realized that the ruler and pattern had different dimensions and the blocks would have mismatched points. I ended up redesigning it in EQ6 with the sashing and litle blocks. I also worked on the border as the fabric was bought when the quilt was to be much smaller. This all started from a few fat quarters that my son gave me one Mother's Day. It has become one of my favourite quilts and I keep it on my bed. It reminds me what can be created with hard work and determination.

I like it much better than what it would have originally looked like. It was a true labour of love.

Friday Night Sew In - Stolen Kisses

I spent my Friday Night Sew In finishing up my half square triangles for the Aqua section of my Stolen Kisses quilt. I am finding this quilt a bit slower to do as to make sure I have the pattern correctly I have been sewing each of the colourways before I go on the next one. After this section is done I will have two more to do.

Get A Clue

I have been working on my Nancy Drew quilt for a while now. I attempted earlier this year to lay it out on my floor as I was sewing it. I should have had a "clue" that this was not a good idea as I have three cats. This is the result.

I then put it on my design wall and it worked much better.


 I now have all the squares sewn together and I am trying to decide what I would like to use as the border.

Microwave Plate Cozy

My mother asked me to make her a microwave plate cozy. I thought that I would try to enlarge a bowl pattern but then I found a great tutorial by SewWhatYvette. I bought fabric that I knew she would like and made it. The tutorial was very easy to follow. I gave it to her on Mother's Day. She was very happy to receive it. I thought it would be great for me to have as well but of course I have yet to make one for myself
