Story Book Quilts



This quilt top was done by Tanya.  It has fabric from the story book line, as well as some additional yellows.


The back of the quilt is yellow cotton from Kona.



The next quilt top is a  peach 9 patch also from story book line.




This quilt top was also made by Tanya.  


The back of the quilt is off white minky.  Both of these quilts were made for a lady Tanya went to high school with.  When we had Julia in our late 30's early 40's Tanya decided to make a quilt for everybody her age that she went to high school with that had a baby from that point. There were only 49 people in her class and not many have babies in their forties.   She had twin girls at age 43.  This is only the 3 rd quilt we have given to former classmates.

Triangle Quilt out of Bungle Jungle




We are alive and have been quilting, we just haven't been blogging.  We have posted several pictures to Instagram, and a few to Facebook.  You are probably going to get overwhelmed with finishes in the next little bit, but not as many work in project posts.  

This quilt top is made completely from our stash.  It is from the fabric line Bungle Jungle. We did have to buy some gray fabric for back.  It was made in September of this year for a baby shower.  It was made for somebody from churches new baby boy.


These triangles were cut 2-3 years ago.  We did a scrappy binding with leftover fabric. The couple we gave the quilt to love it.  They have posted several pictures of their son on this quilt on their Instagram pages.



Does it make you feel better for someone to display your quilt or for them to use it?  We like it when they use the quilt.

Pinwheel Quilt


This quilt has been finished for probably 7 months now and has never had its picture taken until now.  This was an all from stash quilt.  


The back of the quilt is a gray minky.  We have a lot of gray and off white minky, Tanya accidentally ordered twice what she wanted last year.  So a lot of backs of quilts are going to be minky for a while.

Halloween Table Runners


This is funny was going though old blog posts and found that I created this post long ago and never posted it since I finished the binding yesterday on these I thought I should share this.  yes we have many ore then the first 3 to finish they are just the start.  Any way below is what I wrote a year ago when I first started these.

Tanya has us off making new projects again.  This time we are trying to get ahead of the game.  Meaning that we will start making things for a holiday before the holiday is over.  My task to make 10+ Halloween table runners. 


Kind of a blurry picture but above you can see my nearly 2 inch tall stack of strips.  To give context to their size its 4 1/2 inches wide.  I do not ever make one thing at a time.  Its more like a dozen projects started at a time.  One day I am going to have to catalog all the 1/3 way projects I have done in the past.

Well we didn't get any of them done by Halloween. Three tops were completed. On to the next season.
