Wren and Friends Framed Hexagon Quilt

Well here's a little beauty!  It was a pain in the butt to sew this one but it sure turned out nice.  My daughter has claimed it as hers, but the layers of quilts on her bed suggest maybe she has too many.
I used one pre-cut hexagons pack from the Wren and Friends fabric line by moda fabrics.  To get a bigger quilt I framed each hexagon in a creamy white solid. The quilt ended up being a lap or baby/toddler size.  The backing is a cream minky plush, which is unbelievably soft.
I loved the fabric so much while making this one I went out and bought more.  So stay tuned for some more wren and friends :)

Barthlomeow Baby Boy Quilt

  Quick and easy charm pack quilt.  All you need is two charm packs (40 - 5" squares x 2) and some solid color yardage about 1 yard (I used white).  I love how it showcases the fabric patterns by framing them.  It only takes a few hours to complete this oversized baby quilt top.  I used blue minky backing and 50/50 cotton/bamboo batting.  The top stitch design is waves to go along with the cute Barthlomeow fabric line by moda fabrics.

Happy Quilting

Persimmon Postage Stamp Quilt

Here is one of my favorite quilts that I have ever made!! Very tempted to keep this one, but alas I have too many quilts hanging around the house.  I think I mostly like it because of the beautiful colors in the Persimmon fabric line.

I started off with 1 jelly roll and about 1 1/2 meters of solid fabric and got a 60" x 60" quilt out of it! I was quite impressed with myself, and it went together really fast. This fabric line worked out nicely because there are no repeats in the postage stamp blocks. 

As with most of my quilts I put a cozy plush backing on it with 50/50 bamboo/cotton batting.  Check it out in my ETSY shop here
