Circle Baby Quilt

This blanket was made for my great niece # 2! I wasn't sure what I was going to make so I just decided to put some pinks together and see how they rested next to each other.  I really like how this turned it and think it would make a great beach blanket. I used Tula Pink's MOXIE pattern to make this fabric flow.

Pinwheel Happy

This blanket was made for my second great niece! We are all very excited for another smart, spunky, gal running around during the holidays.  My niece wanted something quiet for her room salmon colors she said. So this is what I came up with for our new addition to the family. I love, love, love the fish from Heather Ross and the pink from Anna Maria Horner.  They both seem so happy together. This is my first pinwheel quilt.  After I saw a video on how to make them by taking a square and going around the edges then cutting it in half diagonally in both directions I was hooked.

Emily & Cory

This quilt was made for two hip happening girls who tied the knot this October. I had the picture of the sunset of the as the inspiration design  of the quilt. This was not an easy task. I started trying to make sand and then blues and greens and dark clouds for the sky but this was not working. So I stopped and revisited this project in three months later and totally changed the design.  I made triangles instead of squares and went to the hexagons.  The quilt started to change and it was starting to flow.  I found some orange that I wanted to put in it because I remember during a conversation with Emily her emphasizing the orange.  I hope they love it.  This quilt will reside in San Diego in a loving home. Shew!
