Blogger’s Quilt Festival


Better late than never!  My entry for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival is my Charisma four patch quilt…basically lots of four patches sewn together on point.

This was my first time stippling a full sized quilt!  The tiny blocks led me to do tiny stipples no matter how hard I tried to make bigger stipples.  I still love how it turned out and am so glad I took the plunge into free motion quilting.


This was also the first quilt I got to keep!  I made so many baby quilts over the past year and a half and even gave away my first full sized quilt to my parents for Christmas last year.  This one’s for me! 


Now that the weather is getting colder I’ve actually had a chance to use it.  This pink backing makes me smile every time I use it!


Thanks for visiting!  Go check out all the other entries over at Amy’s Creative Side!

Potholder Pass 5



I joined in for a second round of Potholder Pass over on Flickr.  This round’s theme was Holiday.  My partner left it pretty open about what she wanted so I struggled a tiny bit.  I tried a few things that didn’t work (for me) and finally settled on playing with some very small half square triangles.


I used a variety of holiday themed fabric – including some Robert Kaufman and 12 Days of Christmas by Moda.  I still have tons of it left, including this cute cupcake print!


My creative juices weren’t flowing so I had a hard time coming up with an ornament (especially after receiving my ornaments and potholders!).  I found this cute tutorial online and made my first ever ornament.


Isn’t he cute?

Hope you like them partner!
