So here's a Christmas quilt I've been working on:
It's made from a jelly roll using the free jelly roll race pattern. I've made quite a few quilts using this pattern and you can read about some of them here and here. A jelly roll is a group of coordinating fabrics pre cut into 2 1/2" strips.
This quilt doesn't scream Christmas, but the closeup below shows the cute snowman print on one of the strips.
The backing has been pieced and everything is loaded on the longarm frame ready to be quilted. I've even picked the thread color and a quilting motif. Now I just have to quit playing with other creations and get busy!
I'll post more after the quilting is underway.
Made a really cute baby quilt from this Shannon Fabrics Cuddle kit. Cuddle fabric is that soft furry fabric also know as Minky or Snuggle. This furry fabric can be a little tricky to work with, but the payoff is a wonderfully soft and luxurious feeling blankie that is super cute!
The kit has all the fabric you need, along with directions and hints for working with Cuddle fabric. It is a quilt-as-you-go technique that is a quick finish.
The elephants are soooo cute and I'm very happy with how this turned out!
My favorite way to express my creativity is with fabric. Join me as I share my journey with you. I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!
