comfort quilt

The third quilt I ever made. 1993-4 for my niece Alex. My sister is in the hospital with a difficult pregnancy and I was surprised to see this. She brought it with her as a comfort. It is hand sewn, appliqued, and quilted.The little aprons are pieces of cotton lace trim. The hands are pieced of muslin (what did I know!) I was glad to capture a couple of pictures since it has minimal wear and tear.

Hugs & Kisses, I love you!

 It doesn't get any easier than cutting a layer cake in half and inserting jelly roll strips. I love Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips. The little playful doggies, scooter people, and the overall color combo. Quilted in X's O's and U's for I love you, a lot of love went into making this quilt.

4X4: a Scrappy quilt

Scrappy squares! A pieced 2 inch 4X4 blocks quilt that I made in a hurry just in time for Christmas. I love Kona gray and yellow. The back is made with Moda Puzzle pieces in Paisley gray and Bella Solid in Sunshine. Quilted in gray, I think I like it. Bunny ears for my quilt, compliments of the hubby.
