Quilty Love » A quilting creative blog

I have completely swooned over every swoon quilt I have seen.   So I just had to make
my own.   I’m realizing how I tend to overlook dimensions every time I start a quilt because
I had no idea this thing was so huge!  So I was surprised it actually kind of fits on our bed.

I decided to use the cotton and steel basics fat quarter bundle I had on hand.  After about 3 blocks
I was afraid I made the wrong choice but once it was all put together I loved it again!   This still
remains a quilt top as I think I’m going to make it somewhat a double sided quilt.   I haven’t quite
decided what it will look like yet.

These blocks do not go together that fast which isn’t a bad thing.   I found working on a block here and there
was more enjoyable than trying to power thought it all at once. quiltylove-1-2

This black and white stripes quilt was my first finish this winter.
I’m still loving solids and I love the simplicity of black and white.
When I saw Rad and Happy using flannel as the backing on
some of her quilts I had to make my own.   Living in what feels
like the arctic we are in desperate need of warm cozy quilts around here.

I whipped this one together in a few days.  Sometimes I love
the satisfaction of a quick project.

I machine bind all of my quilts.   Mainly because I’ve never attempted
hand binding and I’m afraid I won’t be very good at it ;)   I’ve kind of
combined a few tutorials I’ve found online into something
that works for me.   I’ll have to include a full post sometime on my methods.

I wasn’t kidding about the arctic.   It looks like this outside for way too many months
around here.   We use all of the quilts laying around this house!

And our fireplace.   We use this fireplace a lot.

I really love this Pow Wow pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.
I decided to be the really boring aunt this year and make my
nephew a quilt for his birthday.   These Riley Blake
fabrics are perfect for his bedroom theme.

You can’t go wrong with this pattern.   The pow wow looks great
in any fabrics!

I strayed away from my usual white and figured grey would be
safer for this one.  This is the densest quilting I’ve ever done and
I love how it looks!   It sure was tedious to do 1/2″ straight lines but
worth it in the end.

Making pillows is so fun!   I made this one for my husband’s grandma
for Christmas.   I used my leftover half square triangles from my swoon quilt.  One of these
days I’ll make a project that uses up the rest of them.

Somehow I only managed to take iphone pics before I gifted it.  Loving the cotton and Steel basics fabric line.
