Milk, Sugar, and Flower Quilt

Milk, Sugar, and Flower Quilt

One more of my work in progress quilts finished!  That’s such a good feeling.  Right up there with having all of the laundry done, folded, and put away. 

Except I’ll have to re-do the laundry every few days foreeeeeeeeeeeeeeveeeer.

Milk, Sugar, and Flower Quilt

I made this quilt top two years ago and it’s been hanging so pretty in my closet ever since.  Honestly I’m not head over heels for this quilt, but it is a sweet quilt and makes a perfect couch quilt for Sophie that the boys won’t steal from her.

The fabric is a couple of years old so it will be hard to come by, but the cute line was called Milk, Sugar and Flower by Penny Rose Fabrics.  The pattern is Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson Designs. 

I bound it with a favorite Michael Miller red stripe, and backed it with a soft white floral flannel.  I free motion quilted it using my go-to for large quilts, the loopty loops.  It’s just so easy to do loopty loops on big quilts like this (it’s almost a Twin size).

It’s a perfect quilt to finish in time for Spring and Valentines Day! 

Now on to the next WIP!  Also because I’ll get asked, WIP stands for “work in progress” for those of you that don’t speak quilt yet.

Review

Happy (late) New Year!  

Last year seemed a bit crazy didn’t it?  I’m know I’m not the only one who felt it…just a bit “off” all year long.  I’m looking forward to a fresh new start this year! 

I couldn’t let a year go by without a roundup of my favorite posts of the past year.  Here are some of my favorite quilts/things/posts from 2017:

How to Spray Baste a Quilt

While we renovated the downstairs I moved my very rustic ladder into the corner of my sewing room and hung my WIP quilt tops on it.  Getting them out of the closet and into plain sight was motivation…it’s like having my Mom give me “the dirty eye” from the corner of the room.  No starting new projects until my unfinished quilts are done and off the ladder!   I finished two of them this week…three more to go and I’ll have no more WIP’s for the first time in a few years!  

I look forward to posting more in this space this year, trying to make myself get in front of the camera more, and being more personable on this blog and social media (not my strong suite!).   Also making myself get away from the phone/computer, and drawing and sewing more again to fill my free time.    

Wishing you all a great year ahead!

No Point Stars – A Free Printable Pattern in 5 sizes

No Point Stars, a Free Printable Pattern in 5 sizes

This is my very favorite stars quilt pattern ever….and of course it’s because there are NO POINTS of the stars to match up and stress over!  Thus the name “No Point Stars”…in case you were confused…naming quilts is not my talent!

I decided to revamp my July Stars Tutorial with a FREE printable full pattern (link is below)…because I love this quilt so much and I get questions about sizing and fabric requirements almost daily!    I’ve made it in reds and blues, and now red and green, but really this quilt is amazing in a variety of colors or even scraps.  

If you’ve never made a star quilt before now is your chance!
