Sierra's quilt

Here is the quilt that I made for my niece, Sierra, who just turned 16.  This is the quilt that I did as part of a zig zag quilt along with www.mommybydaycrafterbynight! I did have to inform Sierra and her mother that it was not a blanket, that's an insult to a quilter.  Hehe.  This one was a lot of fun to make and I even quilted it myself on the big longarm! I chose the quilting pattern, sticky buns.  I hope Sierra cherishes this quilt for years to come!

Pillows & shams oh my!

Remember the four-squared quilt I made for my DIL Tonja? Well it was her birthday July 11th and I made 2 pillow shams and three decorative throw pillows to go with her quilt.  I was so excited to send them to her! It is so fun having another girl in the family!

I just wanted to show off my latest embroidery project that I completed.  I have been working on birdie for a little while now and am happy to say that it is done.  Trying to decide where it's home will be, decisions decisions.

Great Granny quilt along!

I won 2 1/2" batik strips last spring at quilt camp and decided that I am gonna make some granny squares with them! Can't wait to see how they turn out! Not going to use white though for my background, not sure what color yet!
