twin bed quilt top - done!

all 520 squares are sewn together - WOOHOO! Now I just need batting so I can load it on the frame. This will go on the twin bed in the upstairs guest room where I did the paper bag walls and will look SO good!

My latest headache, I mean, project!

I'm using scraps from my Indigos Around quilt to make a twin-sized bed quilt for the guest room. Because of the size of the scraps, I had to go with 4" cut squares. I knew I wanted it to have some sort of "pattern" to it and it's coming along pretty well. But it's tough to fit all the rows on even the king-sized bed in the basement! I have to cut some more squares now that I know where it needs to be filled in. This is my largest quilt yet, and I've already got a king-sized one in the planning stages. I need a design wall. Pronto.

Indigos Around

I finally finished this quilt about a month ago. It gave me experience with pinwheels and flying geese blocks at the same time. I'm glad I made it bigger than the original pattern, but I truly wish I had made it even larger than I did! I really love this quilt. I first saw it in an ad for Connecting Threads and just had to have it!

My first handbag

Originally uploaded by KayCee1967
Here is my first handbag and it really went together very quickly and easily. I used AJ's "Charming Handbag" tutorial on Moda Bakeshop, but decided to use solid pieces of fabric instead of piecing it since I needed it done fast. I still need to get the insert for the bottom so it will hold its shape, but otherwise it is done.

puzzle quilting design!

I bought a new pantograph to use on my quilts, and I just LOVE it! I was using a stippling/meandering pattern, but it was much more time consuming and I had to change the bobbin way too often. This was easy and I finished the whole quilt top in an afternoon. One down, three to go!

Disappearing 9 patch

Originally uploaded by KayCee1967
This is another Christmas gift. This was done with a dozen 9 patch blocks which were cut down the middles and turned to form new blocks. I put the light blue sashing in to break it up a little - these fabrics are pretty "busy" - but I like the overall look now.
