Peace Quilt Update

This quilt on it's way to the quilter today... 
it's a smaller quilt for my entry hall.


This IKEA fabric for the back, it's a larger scale
print.  I just discovered IKEA fabrics on a spur of the moment trip stop into the Sacramento, CA store.

This quilt combines many of my favorite things, peace signs, bright free pieced fabrics, and word fabric and makes me smile. :)

I was under the gun last week to make a baby gift for a friend at work... a quick stop at the fabric store on the way home and ta da, here's what I came up with...  snugly, flannel blankies, two sided with some fancy stitching for the edges.  

Of course, I favor the bright fabrics, however couldn't pass up the I Love Mommy, I Love Daddy fabric here.

Happy Stitching!

Hexie Quilt Top

At long last, here it is.  Some quilt stats and fun facts:
Size:  82" x 72"
Started: 2011
Top Finished: 2013
Hexies:  3500 ish
(I did the math and came up 3487, my husband came up with 3500 so we must be in the ballpark!)
All hand made, including paper hexies and hand sewn. 
The name of each of my family members is in the quilt. 

The ultimate "I Spy" Quilt

Sewing in the final hexie, I'm looking pretty happy!

I had sewn that last piece in last Saturday, then discovered 9 more hexies needed on the border...  truly the never ending project!

A Quick Little Project

A fun little project for a friend's birthday...  gotta love the glitter on the fairy wings.

I have a finish on the Mollie Quilt to show you (I cannot find the pictures..eak), and the two more "diamond" border sections to finish on the Hexie Quilt. Yay!
