Cody's Quilt 4

I have finished another easy quilt
mind you not by the deadline
set for me by the recipient!!
I made all my children quilts years ago,
when they all had smaller beds,
they have since all grown to bigger beds
see my dilemma!!
Cody was the first to ask for a new quilt
He picked the same colors as his bedroom
which he had picked those colors from his first quilt
I used a super easy pattern
I found on Pinterest
It is a brick pattern from Moda Bake Shop

It was a beast of a thing to quilt
I used  micro fibre blanket for the backing, as well as a layer of batting,
so he should be nice and warm

Next project, nice little doll sized quilts

I packed up my sewing machine one day this week
so I could make cards.
I needed a few made, still need a few more
but at least I got started.
I made this first one as an anniversary card
yes, I even made the envelope too
cool huh?

and a sympathy card
I will be back later this week to share my sons quilt with you
Thanks for stopping by
Happy Saturday

Twin Quilts 2 and 3

Beautiful twin quilts
beautiful twin girls
I LOVE this Fabric!!
Vintage Modern for Moda
By Bonnie and Camille
I first seen it when I came across the
Camille half of the partners blog
This woman has the BEST sewing room EVER!!!!!
I tweaked the
Weekender pattern, that I used in my OLIVE quilt
I wanted to make it for a twin sized bed
I added a row with the girls names,
and 2 more rows of patches to make them longer

Cute right??

I just loved them

(it was a cloudy rainy day when I finished Scarlett's,
 so I was unable to photograph outdoors)
I hope the girls love them as much as I did
I am glad I have lots of fabric left to make myself
a Vintage Modern quilt too!!

I wanted to share with you, a picture of the girls enjoying their cozy quilts

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Thursday

I made myself a set of fall place mats
and a table runner,
while it was still summer.
Not long ago, when the kids started school
my youngest says, "since we are in school
that means it is fall, time to switch to the fall stuff"
I used a basket weave pattern
that I found on Pinterest
it is from a pattern at the Moda Bake Shop
The pattern was used for a rug, but I wanted to make a table runner

The pattern calls for jelly rolls strip which are 2.5 inches to be folded in half,
I folded them for the table runner,
but decided I liked them better at their full width for the place mats

The one above is my favorite

Again like my summer set, none are the same
Sorry for the poor color and lighting, we had cloudy weather the day these were taken
Sorry that they are dirty, I had thought they were straight out of the wash, guess not
Happy Monday
