Quilts for the Schools

This is just a bonus quilt- enjoy

Both of my kids schools got raffle quilts from me this year. 

This first one was won in a raffle by Amiee.
We raised just over $200 for the preschool!! so awesome!

This is the quilt that the elementary school got. 
Ii went in a silent raffle and im not sure what it made. but someone told me it was over 150 at some point. 

Quilt retreat May 2017

Twice a year my quilt guild goes on a quilt retreat. THey usually go for 5 nights but I cannot get away that long.
This year I was able to go up on Thursday night and leave sunday morning. That gave me 2.5 days of sewing time. 

top done. I have always wanted to make a plus quilt and finally did. 

wore sewing related lularoe- pin leggings and hexie top

basting on the floor sucks

quilt finished. I woke up friday and designed this. and made it and quilted it and finished it with binding by midnight. 
this is for a friend who likes orange and her house is grey

I also finished this snowball quilt top (polar bears in some blocks)

I also made these mug things for end of year teacher gifts. 5 in total

A quilt just for Kendra

I made a quilt for Kendra a long time ago for her baby boy

I had decided to make a quilt just for her and it took almost two years to get it to her :)

I think she likes it.

Christinas wall hanging

I went fabric shopping with Christina. she fell in love with the bucks. 

I immediately thought about this wall hanging. 

I told her to grab 3 fat quarters and made this up for her in a couple hours. 

maybe should have made the middle a little smaller. 
and the side triangles I cut wrong- but didn't notice til I was done. so now it draws your eyes around the quilt. 

quilted around the middle buck

and a piece from my stash for the back and a hanging sleeve

my 34th birthday quilt

for my 34th birthday my friend Rachel threw me a surprise birthday party!

I had no clue that it was being planned. They disguised it as a planning meeting for the Operation Christmas Child boxes.

Dave was out of town and Courtney even came down for the party. She offered to take the kids to get some groceries while i went to the meeting. She was there with the kids and all my friends.

Rachel knew my favourite colour was yellow and was trying to get me something people could write on for a quilt top and got a jelly roll. (fabric strips)

I later found this charm pack and bought it. there are 2 of each pattern - sort of a fun game to match them up.

I used the well wishes as the sashing.

you should be able to click on the pictures to see them bigger and then scroll through them.

I then backed it in camera fabric. 

added a label

now I just need to add a hanging sleeve and find a place to hang it in my room.
