I figured now was the perfect time to post about the quilts I made for my 4 grandkids back in December of 2012 (2 boys — Mason and Easton and 2 girls — Blake and Tatum). Now is the perfect time to post because I just pulled these pictures out because I am going to be making a few more and I needed to refer to the picture for guidance! Continue reading →
I designed this quilt pattern for my 4th grandchild – Tatum! She was born in January 2013. At that time, my daughter Katie (Tatum’s mom) was really into yellow and gray so that is how I chose the colors. I chose the design because I had been itching to make a quilt using half-square triangles, plus chevron was just starting to get really popular. Continue reading →
I took on this enormous project as my 14th quilt (in 2004), just a few couple of years after I made my very first one. When you look at this quilt, you might not think it looks like an enormous undertaking, but considering this was the first time I tackled a quilt without having a step-by-step pattern to follow.

During the last few months, my grandkids have been pretending to go ‘shopping’ when they are playing at my house. They will push the grocery cart to me and expect me to ring up all of the items and bag them up (I had a few small paper bags they would use)… That is what gave me the ideas of making these pint-sized grocery bags.

Perhaps I was a little too excited when my daughter (my oldest child) went to college… I made these wall hangings for her and her friends and dorm mates so they could decorate and personalize the hallway outside of their dorm rooms. Continue reading →
This is my 16th quilt. Before I tell you more about it, let me apologize for the poor quality of the photo. In my defense, I made this quilt and took this picture in June 2004. This was long before I had a good quality digital camera and the skills to edit the photos. Continue reading →
I made this Spongebob Squarepants for my son, Christopher, in March 2004. He loved the show and I was hooked on buying things on Ebay — which is where I found more than a dozen different spongebob Squarepants prints. These two things, along with the fact that he had been bugging me for a quilt since I made my daughter her Wizard of Oz Quilt, were the inspiration for my 13th quilt (made in March of 2004).

Kids are a wonderful excuse to sew and, since September is National Sewing Month, now is the perfect time to sew one or more of these fun and unique projects that kids will love. You can sew up a cute baby carrier for a special little girl or a felt tool box for an adorable little boy – or vice-verse. I bet you can’t choose just one of these to make! Continue reading →
Ready to see the 7th quilt I made, way back in November of 2002? Don’t you just love the fun Wizard of Oz fabrics?
This Wizard of Oz quilt was actually the very first quilt kit I ever bought. I believe it was also my first visit to one of my favorite quilt shops, Bay Window Quilt Shop. Can I blame them that I now have an entire cupboard full of quilt kits (hahaha)? Continue reading →
My granddaughter loved the movie Frozen and was pleased when I showed up at her birthday party with my own version of Elsa and Anna’s dresses. They would also make great Halloween costume!
I got the pleasure of going to see Frozen with my granddaughter Blake when it was in the theater. Her response to the movie was priceless so much so that this movie will always have a special place in my heart. When my daughter started planning Blake’s 3rd birthday and decided to make it a princess theme, I decided I would make her a Princess Elsa dress to wear to the party. Of course, I also needed to make a Princess Anna dress for Tatum, my 18-month-old granddaughter! (My grandson was also at the birthday party and was feeling a little left out so we let him wear Anna’s cloak along with his own crown.) Continue reading →
