baby quilt

My sister-in-law requested these colors for her soon-to-be born baby boy.
I needed something quick and easy.

disappearing nine patch

Here's a nice upside down pic of the blocks for Emolyn.  I am not quite sure why sometimes my pictures get turned around on the blog.  This turned out to much easier than I thought! :)  Sorry for the delay.

Disappearing 9 patch for Emolyn

Hello!!! Is anyone out there??? I can hear crickets chirping here on our blog. ;)

Here are my disappearing 9 patch squares for Emolyn...

I finished a few things in the last few months...

I did a swoon friendship swap with friends here in Logan and gave it to my daughter, Vivian, for her birthday. I love it!

A hexagon pillow inspired by this wall hanging.

My Christmas houndstooth quilt - thanks everyone! I love how it turned out.

My husband asked for a quilt for Christmas. So I made a Sasquatch quilt for him since he's on the hairy side. :)

Happy Spring everyone! Let's see your projects!

For Lou's Beautiful Eyes (October's quilt)

For Lou's Beautiful Eyes

I have sent you the fabric, already cut into pieces A, B, C, D, E, and F.

Arrange your pieces edge to edge to match the pattern above and below.

Mark the center of each apex and each hollow.

These will serve as reference points for sewing each curve.

Stitch your pieces together using a seam allowance of 1/4" referring to the reference points. (I found it easiest to pin the pieces together, but you are all probably better seamstresses than I.)

It is normal for the ends of each piece not to match, your block will be re-cut later.

Iron seam allowances out from the center largest piece. Clip curves to help everything lay flat.

Please trim the edges to be a square.  I will trim them all to size once I get them all.
Your finished squares should look like this:

I am sending you pieces to make two (2) blocks.

That's it!  Thank you so much!

More Christmas squares for Emily

I'm with Amy and Camie. I really like this square. I LOVE, LOVE Emily's fabric choice and the square was easy. 
(Unless you don't pay attention to the directions and make SIXTEEN half square triangles!) 
Luckily, I found some extra fabric online and did it right!

Keeping Cool with Christmas

It has been kind of hot and muggy here the past couple of days, and no air conditioning. boohoo!  So I kept cool by sewing up these fun houndstooth squares for Emily.  Such beautiful fabrics and such an easy pattern with a big wow effect.  This quilt is really going to be fun to see all finished up.

Snow Globe for Amy

Amy, this was such a fun square! I apologize for taking so long. But it is "in the mail".  I can't wait to see it finished.

Merry Christmas! 

America, The Beautiful!

Over the past 2 years, 12squared has been helping me with a patriotic quilt. I finished it in time to display it for the 4th of July! Woo Hoo!! (Can you find your squares? lol)

I quilted a few pillows to match! Including some freehand stars on the front!

It makes me feel like I am at the Olympics just to see these! : )

Thanks for all of your help.
