Dancing Squares Baby

This quilt was made for my dear friend, Jamie's baby girl due on Christmas day. She helped me pick some of the colors, and then I added more fabrics. Most of these fabrics are from Amy Butler and Anna Marie Horner. I just started making log cabinish blocks of different sizes, then added strips of some of the leftovers as I planned my layout. The finished quilt is approximately 48x60. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and so is the momma!

Circle Doll quilt

I wanted to make a small doll quilt for my niece's 3rd birthday last week. I decided to play with circles a bit among my scraps.

And the back.

I had a leftover circle and decided to use it for the label. I thought it was cute. The finished quilt size is 18x24.

Ashlyn's quilt

Ashlyn has always wanted to make a quilt. Whenever I was sewing, I would often give her pins and fabric. She would stick the pins into the fabric and be pretty happy with that. Then, earlier this year, I decided to let her make a quilt that she could actually keep. My plan was for her to just glue fabric squares to a piece of muslin. The end. But, she knew that wasn't a quilt! She picked out the fabric, cut the fabric pieces, and glued them to the muslin. That wasn't enough for her. I explained to her that only mommy could use the sewing machine, but I did let her help guide the fabric through the machine while quilting and sewing on the binding. It took about 6 months to complete, in part because she would only work on it for a short time, and because I left it without the binding for a while.

Ashlyn is so proud. She keeps referring to it as her "very first quilt!"
