Off Kilter Quilt

Lately, my creative energy has been a bit low. Not sure what it is, but I did manage to finish this quilt a few weeks ago.

This quilt started as I took Sarah Bond's Tiger Melon Tiger Moon Class.  I started making those navy and white melon pieces and randomly putting them up on my design wall. I decided I wanted them to be offset in a chain.


as I kept looking at them on the wall, they reminded me of something else. I realized it was Sew Kind of Wonderful's Metro Twist pattern which I had already made. I started making those up for in between the melons and really liked the way it fit!


The quilting was all done by me on my domestic Bernina 2something. Lots of figure 8's and close straight lines.  You can see more of how it looks on the back.


I didn't get any close ups of the binding, but it's a Tula Pink fabric in a shade darker than the background green.

Nautical Octagon quilt


You'll notice this quilt looks a lot like the last quilt that I posted. That's because when I made the last quilt, I let the kids cut a bunch of triangles with my AccuQuilt Go without doing any math. This quilt is the result of having way too many triangles!!



What I love about this quilt is that at first it looks like random triangles. But as you get closer you can see they are actually octagons!


I did free motion and ruler work quilting on this one and I'm quite proud of how it turned out. I really wanted to set those octagons off with the quilting because they are so "low volume". 


The binding is fabrics from within the octagons.


And the back is more of the same.


I'm quite proud of this quilt in general because it was the first time I developed my own pattern. I had these triangles and wanted to make an octagon without doing any Y seams. It was quite an interesting process, but it came together well!! 

You can find this quilt for sale on my etsy shop.

Nautical Triangle Baby Quilt


I recently finished up this sweet little nautical quilt and wanted to share it here. This quilt was made with my accuquilt go cutter.  I had my two little minions cut a bunch of fabrics up for me knowing that I wanted to make a basic triangle quilt.


The nautical novelty fabrics are Cinderberry and the rest is from my stash.


Aren't those little animals and mermaids the cutest!?


I did a very simple straightline quilting on this to keep it soft and cuddly.


The binding is all the yellow print from within some of the triangles.


You can see more of the creatures on the back.



This sweet little quilt is for sale on my etsy shop right here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Second Alphabet Quilt

When I made my last alphabet quilt, I made two at one time. I never showed photos of the second one. Recently we had an unusually warm day, so I set up my photo equipment and took some photos of this adorable quilt.


I used primary colors for this quilt so it will work for a boy or girl, or even an adult! The original quilt was meant as a gift for a teacher which I think is a great idea.


It's tough to see unless you enlarge these photos, but the quilting is detailed and custom and really makes an impact in person.


And yes, the "HI" was done in a different color so it stands out deliberately. Cute right!?


This quilt is currently for sale in my Etsy shop right here.
