Check out how cute this quilt turned out! We used a Half Moon Charm pack and a Jelly Roll, and just a tiny bit of Bella Solid Gray and WOW. I am IN LOVE with the way this quilt turned out. The lighting on the picture is bad (sorry) but I just had to show you this quilt. It is for a girl whose colors are ‘ black and silver’ and I think this fits the bill!!
What projects are you working on? The Christmas rush is now officially ON! Are you prepared or running around like crazy trying to get it all done? We have a few more ideas running through our minds that we will hopefully get done in time…..
Easy peasy charm pack tote bags. We custom made these for a customer and she is using them as Christmas gifts. Didn’t they turn out so cute?
I am working on getting a pattern written up for you all, (i pinkie swear) so we can upload it and let you make your own. They are so easy and fun. We used one charm pack for the two bags on either end, and leftover pieces from an April Cornell jelly roll. Then we covered a button with coordinating fabric, and BOOM….cutest thing ever!
Here at MSQC we are all about the easy, quick quilts. You know, something to get you either through a slump, or an idea for a quick gift. And this is a perfect example of just that.
For this specific quilt we used one Panache charm pack and some matching fabric for the borders. Sew the squares into strips and attach them in rows. (best part: NO CUTTING!!) Then we used the amazing scallops, waves and vines ruler (another favorite) and did a little wavy border. I think this turned out to be a perfect gift for a baby shower and it won’t take you a year to make! (well, unless you put it away after an hour or so and lose the whole project….in that vast dark hole we lovingly call ‘the sewing’ room) You know what I mean. 🙂
Just thought I’d share an easy and quick little project.
*ps. Don’t forget to answer my question in the forums for your chance to win a charm pack!! Free fabric every week! Yay!
I have recently joined a few of the mini quilt swaps that are going on around the internet. It has been really fun to make mini quilts. Its totally new to me as I have always made larger quilts, or table runners. But, mini quilts are so small that you can really be creative and try out all kinds of new things. You can do things that seemed hard or too time consuming. I have experimented with embroidery, new blocks (Dresden plate!), free motion quilting, and using scraps in a creative way. It is something I highly recommend! So, enjoy these pics of a few of my mini quilts!
Making mini quilts is so much fun…and you can try all kinds of quilting challenges out on a small scale! So, get brave and try something new! Then show us a pic in our forums!
