Crown.

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a colorful quilt for you called  Crown quilt, this pattern is by Jenny over at MSQ. 
I made this beauty for my brother out in California. This is one BIG quilt! 
I love the bright colors next to the white and gray. I used 3 - 5" charm packs of the print and 3- 5" of white and Some yardage of the gray. The fabric is called Painterly petals by Robert Kaufman. While working with the charm pack I thought the colors were kind of muddy and not as bright as I wanted, but  seeing the quilt all together I am very happy with how it looks. I tried very hard not to have the same fabrics in the same block or next to each other in the quilt.
Here is a close up of the quilting, we used a thread called Hawaiian blue. Hard to see in the photo. 
I also went out in a snow storm! It was still light out at 5:45PM and the snow looked so pretty and the best thing was I had a snow day the next morning. 
A look at the backing. I though it was fun and kind of masculine for my brother. I found this a Backside Fabrics, I love their selections and that I do not have to piece a backing. Here is what I used.
This big quilt is going to cost me a small fortune to send to California.  Any suggestions, which is the easiest way to get it there?
 I hope you like my latest finish. I am very happy with it and think my brother and his wife are going to love it. Thanks so much for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

4 x 4 love

Hello my quilty friends. 
Here with a sweet little Valentines day quilted pillow. 
I whipped this cute little pillow up this morning. Here are some of my favorite hearts. 
All of these hearts were made from scraps from my pink scrap bin. 
and the background fabric was left over from my Sugar and cream quilt. 
So happy and please that this was just a sweet little project that I could get done in just a morning. 
Happy Valentines day! Until I see you again, wishing your Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Update- I made another pillow last night. This one is in reds and the heart were just a bit bigger.

Witches night out.

Hello my Quilty Friends. 
I have a finish for you, This was back from the quilter back in Nov, 2019. I just could not find the time to finish the binding until now. This is going to be a super fun quilt to put out next Halloween. 
Here are some of my favorite blocks. 
The hat is my absolute favorite, I just love the flower fabric. 
I made 3 of these large pumpkins. 
 Here is the top half of the quilt. Sorry about the poor photos. My official quilt holder was busy clearing the driveway of the icy snow, that started falling in the early morning here in MI. 

 Here is the view from the backyard this morning. 

Are these bubble coming out of the cauldron just the cutest! 

And of course Minky for the back. The quilting has spider webs, mini bats and moons. It shows up perfect on both the front and back. 
So there you are folks, my first finish of 2020. Thanks for stopping by. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Goodbye 2019, Hello the Roaring 20's.

    Hello my quilty friends. 2019 is coming to a close in a few short hours and I am reflecting on what I have made this past year.
                                          Image result for goodbye 2019 hello 2020 quotes
   The last few months, there has not been a lot of quilts or quilting due to a demanding job (The move, getting the old house ready to be put on the market, and now a I am pretty exhausted by the time I get out of work and getting ready for the holidays.). 
   This is just a few of what I have to show for 2019.

Sweetness. 
I made this for a dear friend, she was expecting her first grandson. 

Heart strings
I love this quilt. 
It has some of the softest Minky on the back, super cuddly. 💓💓 This quilt! 

And the last most viewed quilt of 2019 is........

Red and white #2. 

   This is such a sweet quilt. Simple Ohio star block . The fabric is one of my favorites. 

   So my wish for you is that you find a bunch of inspiration, fabric and quilting time in 2020. 
Happy New year to you all. 
Until I see you again, wishing you all Quilty Hugs~Heide

Sweetness.

Hello my quilty friends, Today I have the sweetest little quilt for you. Nothing is better that baby quilts! I have go to one of my favorites....Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy fox quilt.
This is my 3 or 4th fox quilt and it never gets old. Everytime I make a little fox, I smile. These are just so cute! 
When I sent it off the the quilter, I gave her free rein on the quilting. She picked this cute paw print design.
 
  The binding is left over 2.5 inch strips and I also used the a flange binding technique. 
 The backing is a soft snuggly flannel to match the colors in the front. 
 This sweet quilt is getting ready to get packed up and I am sending it to a friend that will become a Grandmother for the first time....She is super excited! I am looking forward to see what they think about this sweet quilt.
 Thank you for stopping by and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Cream and Sugar

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a big finish for you. This is a queen size quilt called Cream and Sugar by It's sew Emma.  I used all Fig tree quilts fabrics. I just love the tone on tone fabrics.
Here is a close up of the quilting. I have the quilter use a feather print all over.

                         
Here is a peek of the back. I won a gift certificate from Backside Fabrics. The backing is just perfect from and matches the colors in the front.
 I also used wool batting to keep you warmer during the cool MI Falls. Using wool also makes the quilt lighter.

Last peek at the whole quilt. Thanks for stopping by and wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Wrapped in Ribbon

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a cute little table runner for you. 
Last month at my quilt guild we had a wonderful speaker-Kathy Groves. You can find her on FB and she is a certified Quiltworx instructor. She brought so many beautiful quilts to show us I fell in love with the paper pieced quilts. A bunch of the girls took an all day class with Kathy and they started this runner. I could not go because I just started my job, there were a bunch of other things I miss out due to that awful place called work! But that is a story for another time. 
  Kathy mostly brought her quilts and a very few patterns. I did buy two smaller patterns thinking I will give it a try. I watched a few of the Quiltworx you-tube videos and this is what I made. The patterns were super easy and I do love how it turned out.
It is super hard to capture how pretty this runner turned out due to the length of it. 
Above is the whole runner. 
 A close up of one of the stars. 
The back is a little hodge podge of the left over fabrics. They were all batiks. 
 It is just perfect on my new dinning room table. Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide
