Counting sheep and the baby quilt

Have the babies to count sheep for falling asleep?

I am not sure. Especially when they have a loving grandmas that prepare warming quilts.

Judy Collier bought my pattern Counting Sheep and made this beautiful quilt for her "grandchild on the way". 

When I asked her to send picture of finished quilt I was not expected to receive something. You know, people are too busy nowdays and  full with e-mails, messages and pictures.

I was wrong!

She was so kind to send pictures and surprised me with finished baby quilt.

Look at this amazing  result!

 
 

Look at the quilting she had chosen. So many sheep up to the hills.

During the process of sewing she asked me for assistance - she had idea to put the grass between the sheep, but nowhere through internet she found a pattern.

I was glad to design some blocks, even suggested to make a mirror images for having more grass paper pieced blocks.

Thank you, Judy, for this idea, I will add to the pattern for free.

So happy to have such customers.

They make me proud with my designing abilities and computer skills.

Halloween pumpkin quilt block

 Happy to announce the finished paper pieced block on 1 of September.

The pattern is very versatile - you could rotate or make a mirror block so the quilt surface will be interesting.


I made a test block which intend to implement in a cushion case.

The pattern is here on ETSY.

Memory quilt is finished

The improvisational quilt I have began some days ago is finished.
It is the fast finished quilt - about 15 hours work in two days.
I had to finished because it was a memory quilt for the 30-th wedding anniversary of my beloved brother.

Happy I can took some pictures in home, where we lived and played as kids.




Here is the top view from above if someone is interested in.

Recycled lap quilt

Today I began a new lap quilt - some jeans and shirts have been waiting to be recycled.

It is absolutely improvisational top.

Removed the waistband, inner seam allowances added some triangles to build a rectangles shape and gathered them at the end.

Fast and furious :)


Instead of batting I will add a polar blanket.

It will be a picnic quilt/ lap quilt size and I am wandering about backing.

I will digging in my stash tomorrow.
