I've got my 'quilting' on ...

I finally felt confident enough to longarm quilt my quilt my daughter pieced for me a couple of years ago.  

Ta Da!

My first 2020 project for me!

I've finally got up enough courage to longarm quilt this beautiful quilt my daughter made for me a couple of years ago for my birthday.  

I don't know what it is about dresden plates, but I just love them!
I guess they are like a charm pack  -  so many coordinating fabrics in one package!  This was a free quilt pattern from Better Homes and Gardens Special Edition of Quilts years ago.  I can't wait to finish it.  I saw on instagram from Martingale, this post about dresdens and this is how they quilted theirs, so I gave it a try and do love it!  I might need to ask my friend, Yvonne how to longarm the 4 corners of the quilt... maybe feathers?

Matha's Quilt

My neighbor let me quilt this beautiful quilt she made for her best friend, Mercedes.  She is going to love it!

I got the fun of teaching Matha how to quilt, she was a very fast and quick learner!  She constantly amazes me with the projects she tackles.  Just look at this "Y seam" quilt she sewed, and she has only been quilting for a couple of years!

Its Christmas Eve!

Made my Grandson a Christmas quilt - here it is before I had sewn the binding on.

Made our youngest Grandbabe a Santa quilt.  She loved it!
She will grow into it....  This is the Swell Santa applique.

My 12 year old Granddaughter drew this for me!  I absolutely love all the pictures I get from her.  She amazes me how she puts so much detail into her drawings.  She just sits down and starts drawing!  Thank you so much Kaylee!

And I got to sew our Granddaughter a baby doll quilt for her dolly bed.  I even put minky on the back of the tiny quilt.

Our Christmas tree this year.  While I was busy with my quilting projects, sweet Hubby put up the tree and decorated it all by himself.  This is a first!  I hope it continues each year :)

This is a yoga bag I made one of my YMCA class teachers.  She admired mine all year, so she got her own!  She told me green was her favorite color...  This is a Joel Dewberry print.  I purchased it from Hawthorne Supply Co.  You can pick any fabric, and they will digitally print it on to any type of fabric you want!  

My other YMCA class teacher got 4 holiday Christmas pillowcases.  I used the burrito tutorial... Easy Peasy.

Made a Unicorn Pillow for Granddaughter

Melanie asked me to make her a unicorn pillow for her bed.
I think it turned out cute :)  This is from Elizabeth Hartman's pattern.  I had some halloween fabric that was just 'eyes' so I cut one out and appliqued it on.  I think it turned out really good!
I'll be making Kaylee one next...

Here is the back of her pillow.

Sara's 'Dear Daughter' quilt...

This was a fun quilt to make - I personalized it to my daughter...  It is a pretty big quilt,
ended up being 68 x 81.

Hockey Quilt

My grandson wanted a hockey quilt, so Grandma makes him one!  I used "Spoonflower" to make me a picture of him actually playing hockey from one of his games.  Then I cut
out some half square triangles and let him arrange them.  He did an excellent job with the white, green and blue hst's.
The middle emblem is from a sweatshirt that he has outgrown.  He loves it!

Photo Bomb!
Our sweet granddaughter decided to walk over his quilt at just that moment with her babies!
