Baby quilt for melissa #3

 My sister Melissa had her 3rd baby! 

Because of the Pandemic I was unable to take this up to her and deliver it to her (or take photos) 

Little Harold was born Nov 16th and I mailed this quilt to them the same day. But I had it ready already. 

It started back in late 2018. My friend MC wanted to design a quilt and us do it as a mystery quilt. She was hoping for a tessellating pattern. 

I started with this plane fabric

found some to go with it!

turned out pretty cute

borders on

showing off at quilt guilt Feb 2019


It was too cute to just give away to anyone, so I wanted to keep it for Melissa if and when she had another baby. In fact I kept both a boy and girl quilt just in case. She doesnt find out the gender while pregnant so I had to wait for Harold to be born before mailing it so I knew which one to send!

a bit wrinkled from being folded for almost 2 years

isnt he cute!

and his siblings love him!

A quilt for Andrea's 'new' apartment

So long story short: My friend Andrea's apartment building had a fire in it. 

anywho- her quilt from me years and years ago was one of the things that needed to be thrown out. 

She needed a new quilt then. And my skills have gotten much better!!

so here is what I did. 

Pinwheel blocks

sew on triangle to make the snowball block. make extra sewing line to create a bonus block

bonus half square triangles!!

with the squares on but not pressed- like a snowball


now to do the white ones!


Because I didn't have room to lay this out i had to do it all on paper and match them up

you can see the hourglass shape

ready to head to the quilters- it got bigger than i had thought!! lol


with fun quilting!

bound and ready to go


front- you cant even tell there is winter princesses on it!
