Quilt for a Friend

 This pattern -- Fresh Laundry by Liz Katsuro -- is a perfect choice to feature fabrics, which was important for my friend.
 Using white makes the colors pop!
Long arm machine quilted by Fireline Design in Palmerton, PA.

Happy Halloween

 In January? Well, I just finished this counted cross-stitch pillow & there's no time like the present to post it on my blog. The other Halloween pillow was for Stella; this one's for Freddie.

I Spy for Stella

 148 fussy-cut hexagons! Was fun to hunt for all the different fabrics.


 Simple yet time-consuming straight-line machine quilting.

Simple Quilt

 Leftover fabric makes for a simple quilt! Measures ~36" x 40" -- will be a nice gift for a new baby.

Colorful Baby Blankie

Crocheted -- so colorful & small -- ~24" x 28" -- perfect for a car seat or stroller.

Bruce's Quilt

 A paper-pieced quilt for our friend Bruce. It was too big for me to machine quilt it myself -- it's ~56" x 62" -- I sent it to Quilt Hollow for her expert long-arm machine quilting.
 The theme of the quilt is anchors, stars -- for an ex-Navy guy. The quilting has stars & anchors, too. Hard to see in the pix.
The colors are navy, gray, light gold, off white, black.

Stella's 1st Birthday Quilt

 The fabric used for Stella's 1st Birthday Quilt is called "Stella" -- how appropriate is that?!
 A simple pattern, simply quilted by machine.

Zebra/Panda/Cow Blankie

 I loved this yarn -- 100% merino wool from Wales -- lovely to crochet but I had an odd number of skeins so it turned out to be an odd size -- 37"x44" -- will keep it as a throw for chilly nights. Not sure why the edging is ripply but I kind of like it that way. Adds even more interest to the blankie.
