The pattern is in Alex Anderson's book Start Quilting.
This is my first time ever feeling confident enough to put my free motion quilting in a quilt.
This is a smaller version of Leah Day's Flower Ball.
This is another project I started awhile ago and never finished. I think I started it last summer so not bad compared to my Nine Patch quilt, although this is a much smaller project! The block is called Eddystone Light and in the book Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts by Pam Lintott.
These are doll blankets for S's American Girl dolls. They sleep in bunk beds so the matching bedding is nice.
I played around with straight line quilting. The picture is not that great but you can see the quilting better on the bottom half of the block.
The quilting on this one is much simpler.
I prefer the quilting on the other one even though it took a lot longer to complete. But it really makes a difference, doesn't it?
I had to show the pillows inside the pillowcases. They are made with a piece from my vintage bedsheet collection.
Remember the cute tote bag I made using Totally Trendy Totes 2.0 pattern and Soft and Stable stabilizer, both byAnnie? Now, I'm making another bag putting Soft and Stable to the test once again. The pattern is Newport Tote by Lazy Girl Designs. I made one a few years ago and I love the bag but it turned out a bit flimsy... so let's see if Soft and Stable can give my new bag some shape and body! I've started quilting the bag body with some wavy lines. I'm hoping to try some more free motion quilting for the tree trunks.
The fabric collection is from Blend Fabrics called Timber and Leaf by Sarah Watts.
To make things really fun, I'm giving away a Totally Trendy Totes 2.0 pattern and an 18x58 package of Soft and Stable to one lucky follower! Just leave a comment and the random generator will pick the winner. If you'd like to follow my blog too that would be great but I'm not going to persuade you by offering an incentive. I'd like you to follow my blog because you like it :) Check back in 2 weeks (May 22nd) to find out if you will be receiving a lovely package in the mail from byAnnie.
Happy sewing and quilting!
