Finally finished. Used some vintage sheeting for the backing.

And also finished around the clock. Really happy how this turned out, double sided.

Kaffe floral

Well first.. I should have ironed it.. oops.
I got this idea from Red pepper quilts, a blog I can't stop dropping in on. I ran with the gray back drop but had a pile of Kaffe Fassett charm packs so... came up with this.
I remember her saying in her blog something like " this was an easy project"... haha. Well it was a challenge for me with so many seams, points, etc. But I loved doing it! Challenge away.
Not sure what it will be.. I can see it as a hanging... ?
I have to add that this is a very small version of the queen size I also made... crazy but so fun!
Need to back and bind... hmmm

Cottage fence?

Man oh man have I used ever last piece of my Fig tree fabric! Back in May my local quilt store " Creative Edge", I'd have a link but she hasn't got a web site, had a great sale. I picked up 2 Fig tree jelly rolls and 4 fat quarters and 2 yards of the same line. Well I have managed to make this lap/crib, 2 cottage quilts for my mom, and Lucy's gift.
I put this together the other day... what should it be named? Cottage fence? Standing coins? Any ideas?
32 x 38 inches, 100 % cotton.... have to decide on back and binding...

Lucy's quilt

Made this about 5 months ago. A simple block lap/play mat for my client who just had her first child, beautiful little Lucy.
I stitched in the ditched around every panel to give some interest on the back and also because I didn't have my other machine to stipple it... but happy the way it turned out.
Fig tree fabrics except for backing, 40 x 40, 100 % cotton.

Apples in orange

So I whipped this up yesterday, bright and fresh. The apples seem to pop out to me so I'm calling it " apples in orange".. a little play on words.. I'm so Witty, lol.
A quick, fun project I've seen on so many craft sites I thought I'd try it. I have a few 5" charm pack tucked away, perfect for this.
Have to decide on binding...

37 x 36 play mat/lap/stroller/crib 100 % cotton
quilt. I just did a simple diagonal stitch with the help of painters/masking tape as a guide ( again saw it on someone's blog, when I find it again I'll add the link) .

Fabric spaghetti... I'm getting really crazy about trying to not waste anything... What could I make out of these little strings?

A little nest!

Love her craft blog and now she has another blog "bedtimes stories for everyone", really great.
