Kaleidoscope Baby Quilt

19 Aug

This is our latest listing. It features fun and bold fabrics in all of your favorite fall colors. I know it’s not a kaleidoscope quilt pattern. I named it that because all of the colors reminded me of looking into a kaleidoscope (also, I didn’t know there was a pattern with that name until I finished this one… I’m still learning!) I think this turned out very nicely.

I had a few remnants left over and I decided to use them rather than toss them away. I was unsure of what to make since the pieces were pretty small, so I just began to sew them together. I ended up with a pretty adorable pillow. Just to be safe, I need to add that a pillow should never be placed in a crib with a baby. It is purely for decoration only. The pillow could be used as a cute accent on a rocking chair, or perhaps a window seat, in the nursery.

I love the bright colors. It’s so cheerful! I think any baby would love to cozy up in this lovely blanket.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to make back-to-school gifts for my kids teachers. I’m so excited that school is starting again! Two weeks and counting!



See? We Have Been Busy!

4 Aug

We just listed two new quilts last night. I have another done, ready to be listed tomorrow, and I believe that Lizze has two more just about ready. So it hasn’t been all play this summer. We’ve been working, I promise!

The first one is made with fabrics based on the beloved childrens book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle. It also comes with two matching pillows.

The next one is a gorgeous quilt called Sun Burst. This has paper piecing and curved piecing. It was made using fabrics from the Western Washington 2009 Shop Hop, so they are exclusive to Washington State.
