Bright and Funky Dori Layer Cake Throw Quilt

 Quick and easy layer cake throw quilt.  I used the Dori Collection by Benartex Fabric.  The fabric line is quite funky using bright and colorful fabrics.  It's a simple pattern using only one layer cake (42 - 10" x 10" squares) and makes a 50" x 57" quilt. 

The quilt is topstitched in a medallion design to match the patterns on some of the fabrics.  Yet again I used bamboo/cotton batting and a soft yellow minky. 

You can find this quilt for sale in my ETSY SHOP

Color Theory Stripe Queen Quilt

I recently sold one of the first quilts I made to sell.  A simple striped jelly roll quilt. 

So to honor the occasion I made another one. The Color Theory Collection by V and Co. for Moda Fabric is gorgeous! V and Co. has come out with some wonderful lines, most of which I have used.  I had two jelly rolls and decided to take the pinks out of the collection and just use the more neutral colors.  This quilt is simple but very tedious, sewing all the 2.5" strips together.  I would lay them out on the bed to get the desired look I wanted.  It ended up being a 92" x 92" quilt, and looks great on the bed.  I made up a custom top stitch design of random swirls.  Yet again I used my favorites, bamboo/cotton batting and turquoise minky backing.

I have said this a million times but I did originally make the quilt for myself but my husband won't give up the quilt we already have on our bed.  You can find this one in my ETSY Shop

Avant Garden On-Point Lap Quilt

  Beautiful Avant Garden Collection by Moda Fabric.  I was so excited to get these charm packs, I love the unusual color scheme.  I thought I'd add to the oddity by using a unique burgundy and navy minky backing.  Two charm packs plus some yardage cut in 1.5" strips equalled a 42" x 51" quilt.

  I top stitched the quilt in a simple flower loop design. It also has my new favorite, cotton/bamboo batting.

You can find this quilt in my Etsy Shop.
Update: I love the wonderful people I get to work with on ETSY.  A customer loved the colors of this quilt as much as I do but needed a bigger size.  Since I love doing custom work, wala twin size Avant Garden quilt with matching sham.
