Done crying...

April 20, 2013

The plan: I am going to give it to the family I made it for, along with another baby quilt I made. I can't show that one because I am going to be sharing it on a future blog hop. =) It feels like a win-win. This one will be used and cherished, even though it's not perfect.

Pictures of the spots...

The big picture and a peek at the fabric I chose for the back. 

Thank you all for your encouragement!

I could cry

I made a quilt for a gift and the backing fabric color bled through to the front of the quilt. I have never had that happen! I soaked it in Synthrapol in hopes it would come out, but no luck.

I guess I need to buy more fabric to make a new baby gift.

I am a little bit heartsick because it turned out so cute. =(

Have you had this happen? What did you do with the quilt?

Annie's Cats

April 15, 2013

The rain finally stopped long enough here in Iowa for me to get pictures of Annie's graduation quilt made with the Laurel Burch fabrics.

I feel certain she will love it! I can not wait to give it to her!

Always and Forever

April 7, 2013

Swoon quilted and delivered to the happy young couple...I am naming this quilt Always and Forever. =)

Their name and wedding date appliquéd on the back. 

A slightly better view of the quilting. 

I love that I get to make quilts for friends and family...

Laurel Burch: Fabulous Felines

April 3, 2013

Graduation is coming and there is one very special young lady who will graduating from high school this year. I have been thinking and planning her quilt for the last two years. I wanted to make a quilt that was fun and have it include her love of cats. It's hard finding patterns or fabrics that aren't too babyish or too cutesy. I wanted something that was more sophisticated for her to take to college in the fall. 

Then I found Laurel Burch's fabric line Fabulous Felines

It couldn't be more perfect!

Her mom requested a triangle quilt. I am going to have a hard time giving this one up. It turned out so amazing! I'll share the final product when I get it quilted....

This is a great video by 60 Minutes on the late Laurel Burch. She was a fascinating lady. =)
