Tigers quilt

So I showed you this beautiful earlier this summer. I did not have a job or money to send it out to the quilter. I let it sit in my sewing room.  Well now that the money tree in the back yard flowered I was able to send it off to get it quilter.... Just kidding, there is no money tree in the back yard! 

Here it is all bound and quilted. 
You can see the pattern on the back.  Don't you just love the orange minky? This was a big one and so heavy and cozy with the minky. I call this one my Detroit Tigers quilt-reminds me of the Tigers colors.
I love how this quilt turned out and ended up gifting this beauty to my husbands nephew and  family.  Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty  Hugs~ Heide

Re-telling folk tales.

Hello my quilty friends! 
Today I have some small quilts for you that I made for my job. I am a Kindergarten Para-pro, which is one of my favorite jobs so far in my life! 
The children are learning about Folk tales and have started to learn about theater, so fun and cute! 
The Teacher had little paper cards with clip art images and I asked her if she was attached to the paper cards, when she said no, I went into action! 
Let me introduce Henny Penny and her crew. 
This is Henny Penny.
Below is her friend Cocky Lock.
Ducky Daddles, and Goosey Pooesy. These are the same pattern, just different colors.
Turkey Lurkey 

And last but not least the Villain of the story,  Foxy Woxy. 
These are all 12" X 12" and I think they are much cuter that the paper charterers. The Teacher squealed with delight when she got these and we can not wait to see what the Children think! 
The patterns are all from Made by Marney and so fun and easy to do! I used scraps from my stash and got these done in about half a day.  Thanks for stopping by. 
Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

It's been a while.

Hello my quilty friends. 
Have any of you run into trouble posting? I have been working 2 jobs (part time each) and get home when it is dark and then the weather has not cooperated with me getting some decent photos. I have not been able to get out to get any photos of what I have been working on.  So today I had a helper and  braved the rainy weather.
My sister in law showed me this quilt and I knew she liked it so I se off to find the fabric and pattern so I could get this done for Thanksgiving, when I will be seeing her. 
I found the fabric online and the pattern was  found here at Craftsy. 
I had it quilted all over with a star pattern. I wanted to have it custom quilted but Oh my the cost! 
I also had it backed with some super soft minky. Hopefully it will keep my Sister in-law warm cozy in the cold north.  
I think my SIL will be super surprised, She is not expecting this, so looking forward to see here reaction. 
Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Mini pumpkins.

Hello my quilting friends! Hope everyone is well, today I have a cute little mini for you . I am seeing this adorable quilts all over the web. It is Mini Pumpkins by  Allison over at  Cluck, cluck Sew. 
It is just the cutest little fall quilt. Love all those cute little pumpkins! 
 I added some cute Halloween fabrics to the mix. I have so much fabric left over from the Fat Quarters that I could make a 2nd mini. Which if I had the time I would! But my quilting list keeps growing and with the holidays fast approaching I need to get to work! 
I was going to hang this up by my back door, but is is a tad too big for the area. So I found a new place to hang it and I love the new spot. 
It's new home is right by my front door. Perfect spot!
For the binding I used a FQ from my "elementary" Fabric. I think it was just the perfect pick. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again, wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Circle of birds.

Hello my quilty friends! Today I have a fun little quilt for you. I made this cute little quilt it is about 40.5 X 40.5 made out of my fat 1/8th Liberty of London fabric that the kids got me as a Christmas gift last year. 
i used the free pattern that came in the magazine Modern Patchwork by Fons & Porter. ( May/June 2017 issue) you can find it here.
I am so happy the way this turned out. It is also quilted by me with a little ( okay, a lot) of help on my dear friend Diane's long arm- Innova... oh my gosh what a dream machine!! It quilt beautifully. We used a swirl pattern to do an all over quilting, I think it makes it look like they are flying on a windy day.
Here are some of my favorite little birds from the quilt. 
 Love the blue fabrics. 

 And the sweet!
and then this pretty flowery purple fabric. 
Here is a look of the fun fabric I used on the back and the cute grunge dot as the binding. 
 Its cute little birds! 
One more look before I go.

On the town bag.

Hello my quilty friends! Today I have a bag to show you. I was watching Fat Quarter shops you tube videos and they had a 4 part tutorial on how to make this bag. I love bags....I just am not the most experienced at them. I have to say the tutorial made it look much so that I ordered most of the supplies right then and there! 
Boy did they come fast! So this past weekend I got to work. 
Here is the close up of the button and the fun ruffle fabric that I made using stitch and steam. 
I have to say that stuff is pretty cool! 
Here is the back of the fun fabric(RJR fabric- designer Sarah Watts- Called Honeymoon) I bought about a year ago. Love the pink moons and little teal bats. 
The fun alphabet fabric on the inside as well as the black pockets on both sides. 
One last look of this cute little bag, I did change the handles. In the video they used wooden handles and I preferred to make my own. Thanks for stopping by Until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Hello my quilty friends and welcome. Hope you have having very enjoyable holiday weekend. Ealier in Aug I joined a mini Paper piece swap over at Quilt Art Design. 
Swaps are fun because you never quite know what you are going to get from your partner. 
For this swap I got a partner and a week later after I had half of the project done, my partner backed out. When I got my new partner Janeen sent me a pattern and this is what I used for my new partner. I sure hope she like my color combo. 
  For the quilting I just used a wavy free style. 
This is the technique that I use on the back so the quilt can hung up. 
Thanks for stopping by. Until I see you again...wishing you quilty hugs. ~Heide
