Graduation gift.

Hello my quilty friends, Welcome! is that time of year again. Graduation time. Our family had a Graduation party yesterday. So what is a quilter to do? Make a quilt! This is what I made for the graduate. 
I asked her Grandmother what colors she liked and I believe I hit the mark with this one. I wanted it to be modern so I used the great pattern by The Tulip Patch called Helix.
The fabric is from Craftsy a Lily and loom called Little Bee. 

This is such a big quilt 70" X 90"and of course I used minky for the back. When the gift was opened the Graduate asked did you use the "Good stuff" for the back and was quite please to see and feel that I did! 
I used this beautiful teal for the backing and My friend at Creative Stitching Services quilted it with the pattern called-Hawthorne. 

Here is a photo of the Grad and I when she received the quilt. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again~ Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Little Foxes.

Hello and Welcome. Today I have a repeat quilt but, oh so cute! My sister asked me for a baby quilt for a boy and I sent her a few photos of different quilts and she picked this cute fox pattern. I  just love this adorable little pattern.  The fox faces are so darn cute! Pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.
I used a cute little 5 pack batik bundle from Joann Fabrics. I have made this quilt two other times and it is such a fun easy little block , it goes together quilt easily.
I used this adorable flannel that I thought was fun for a little boy. 

Like I said this is such a fun easy little quilt. I put it together this weekend it even has the cute little flange binding. I think the flange binding adds just a little pop. 
Had to show you how I got my photos last night. Two clips and a patio chair up on the table, LOL! I am pretty happy with how this turned out and hope my Sister likes it. 
Thanks for stopping by and Until I see you again... Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Hands 2 help 2018

Hello my quilty friends! Hope you are doing well. Today I have a quilt that I made for Hands 2 help, you can find more info about this over at Confessions of a Fabric addict. I believe this is my 3rd year participating with this charity quilt challenge. 

Here is the full quilt I love the fun center panel the I used and the fun color outer fabrics. Sure to bring a smile and a cuddle to a child somewhere. 

I had it quilted in red with this cute little paw print to go with the fun fabric. 
I even made a pillow case with the left over fabrics. 
This quilt is going to go off to Little Lambs foundation for kids. 
Here is a little something about what they do. 

Little Lambs Foundation for Kids is a non profit 501(c)3 Organization operating out of Utah which provides comfort kits to children ages newborn to 17 years old who are transitioning into foster care, emergency shelter or who have been hospitalized, by providing them with a little comfort in a bag.

I thought this cute little quilt would bring some comfort to a little one. 
 I use a flannel for the back and binding to make it soft and increase the cuddlebility factor. As for the pattern, I kind of came up with it on my own.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you go check out Hands 2 help. I know it is a great cause and you get to do something you like to help it. 
Until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Sky full of stars.

Hello my quilty friends. I have a finish for you. This is a pattern by Kristina Brinkerhoff @ Center Street Quilts. I found this beauty over at the Moda Bake shop and here is the link to it. 
I had some left over fat quarters from this quilt, and wanted to use them up since it is one of my favorite fabric lines.  
I am also a big fan of stars in quilts...I don't know what it is but I love them! 
And a graphic print fabric...OH MY!!
The backing is half the white  and half black....a bit scrappy. 
Such a fun easy pattern. I am sure there will be another quilt made from this pattern! 
Until I see you again. Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Large Quilt art design giaffe.

About a month or so ago I was looking at a blog, Quilt art Design and Janeen was looking for a pattern tester for this beauty. I told her I would like to give it a try. I love paper piecing and I don't consider myself a beginner so I did not think this would be a problem. I got real nervous when I got the pattern and it was 100 pages,  YIKES!
Well...I put my big girl sewing pants on and got to work on this large 40" x 50" piece. I had my husband print this out at work, I knew my little home printer would not be able to handle it. I started taping this big boy up. I think I had a few choice words as I was working on this but it got easier and easier as I worked on it. 
Here he is before I sent it off to the quilter. As for sewing this pattern up I had no problems and it went together perfectly. I am so happy that I asked to give this pattern a try. Janeen's patterns a great and such wonderful detail on them. 
I love this eye! 
So in the end would I do this again, you bet! I love the challenge and of course I now have this beautiful quilt. I learned at lot while making this about myself and paper piecing. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Oh Baby, sweet baby!

I love how Creative Stitching services quilt this for me. Above is my favorite block, just love the planet! 
I used a sweet and soft flannel for the backing.

Renegade bag.

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a new project that I have been working on. In my last post I mentioned that I have been making bags, and having fun making them! 

Today I have my first official bag that I made all by myself and a bit of help from Sara over at Sew Sweetness. Sara has some wonderful patterns and the best part is you get step by step video instructions when you buy the patterns. You can work at your own pace. This bag took me about two days. One to cut and I also started to sew it and the second day I worked on the construction for about half of the day and it was done. 
I even have two inside zipper pockets. 
A double zipper pull for the top,
and this cute little handmade tag. 
I am super happy with how this turned out. Today I am going to empty out my bag that I am using now and fill this one up so I can start to use it. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide
