Dixie, my 2 1/2 year old chocolate Lab, loves
blankets anything that resembles a blanket. She’s often in my sewing room keeping me company and always manages to find some unfolded fabric or quilt top in process to nap on. Last night after shooing her off the backing for my Windowpane quilt, I decided to make a small quilt just for her.
I finished the top today and started preparing the binding, but haven’t gotten around to quilting it yet. I think she likes it already!

[Looking for my giveaway? It’s here.]
For WIP Wednesday, I have my windowpane quilt to show – this time it’s pieced and I’ve started playing with border ideas (as you can see on the left):
I’ve also started piecing squares for the backing – I’m still brainstorming on the pattern though.
Now the burning question: How should I quilt this? I’d love to hear any ideas you have!

After seeing all the cute projects they were putting out every week, I decided to get myself a copy of the book. Here’s my first creation – the laptop sleeve:
The fabric is Michael Miller’s Bright Paisley Black & I love how it coordinates with my blue laptop!
Here’s my submission for W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced this week:
I’ve finished the 20 squares and decided on the layout but haven’t sewn it all together yet. It’s loosely based on this quilt and this quilt. I’ve posted close-ups of the fabric on flickr.

(Get it? Instead of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”?) I finally finished the baby clothes quilt today – this is quilt #3 for me!
I’m at laundromat washing the baby clothes quilt I finished the other day (but have not yet delivered) because it’s too big for my very basic washer & dryer. This will be my third quilt, but the first one that I’ve actually washed before delivering. Is it weird that I feel like it’s my baby and I keep peering through the little round window to make sure it’s ok?
I’m less than 6 hours from” delivering” (sorry, I love a good pun!) the baby clothes quilt I’ve had in the works – all that’s left is to attach the binding to the back and tack down a few sleeves and collars on the shirts. The details are in my original post about the quilt. I’m linking up to “W.i.P. Wednesday” to show these pictures (please forgive the quality of these pictures – I snapped them with my iPhone). Here’s the front:
And the back (all I did was add the hospital blanket to an already pieced and quilted comforter):
I’ll post the final pictures later today! Don’t forget to check out other projects people have added for W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced – just click on the button below!
I’ve finally finished cutting and laying out the 1,600 2″x 2″ pieces of fabric required to make Elizabeth Hartman’s Tokyo Subway Map Quilt, a quilt-along she posted on her blog Oh, Fransson! I’m making this one for myself and am really excited to see how it turns out!
I hand delivered this quilt to my grandmother today!
It has a lot of the same fabrics as my 1st quilt, which I made for her mother (shown on the left in the picture below).
I used a Bento Box pattern I obtained from Trudi Skene. I would link to her blog, but it has been taken down since. I machine pieced and quilted it myself.
I made this lap quilt in 2007 for my great grandmother’s 100th birthday. She was a quilter and always making little sewing and quilting goodies for me and my sister.
I used the Scrappy Bargello tutorial by Bonnie K. Hunter located here. I pieced and quilted it by machine.
I’m sharing this quilt as part of Bloggers’ Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side!
