Jane won’t sit for a picture…but she sure will bounce for one!

This quilt was a new pattern for Quilt Market, called Hop Skip.  It’s a little pattern, and a crib quilt size at 39 1/2″ x 50″.  It’s made with only 4 quarters, plus a fun print for the large borders and a background.  The fabrics and especially the bouncing ball print from my Bounce line was perfect for it! 

This little quilt flies together, and is good for showing off fabrics with a larger print.

I quilted it myself with the blue clouds print on the back, and used my favorite blue plus print for the binding. 

I always get lots of questions about my machine stitched binding, you can find a tutorial here for how I machine stitch my bindings if you are curious. 

Hop Skip can be found here as a PDF, or here as  paper pattern.

Friday is our last day of school.  I always have mixed feelings.  Between “YAY they’ll be home and no more schedules!”  and, “Nooooo they’ll be home and no more schedules!”.  

I’m working on our making our daily chore charts for the summer…and my kids are going to be thrilled (insert a swimming pool of sarcasm).  

Happy Summer!

Modern Holiday Table Runners

Modern Holiday Table Runners, 6 table runner patterns in one booklet

I meant to share this weeks ago…but today I’m finally getting around to sharing my pattern(s)  Modern Holiday Table Runners, with 6 table runner patterns in one 24 page booklet.  

Most of these are similar versions to patterns or quilts I’ve made before, made into a table runner friendly size and jammed into one pattern.

My house is very neutral, so having a fun pop of color to swap out on the table for every Holiday/Season is my favorite thing!   It’s little easy things like this that my kids notice and look forward to.  

Table runners are high on the list of my favorite things to make because they are #1 small,  #2 fast, #3 cute, and #4 a sneaky way to display a miniature quilt on every table in the house without anyone noticing I’m a crazy quilt lady.

I loved making each of these runners, but these bats definitely won as my favorite. 

My son Ryan requested big version of these…so watch for a bigger version of bats in the works.  

I used these Blossom basics for almost all of the table runners (you can see them well in the tulips above and the bat background below).  There are a ton of colors and they are a GREAT price for a printed near solid.   I used the white, and this denim blue in my Chickens quilt too.

4th of July Stars is staying on my table until August…this one is my favorite color scheme with blue and red scraps.

Positive in Wildwood + Doings

It’s the last day of May!  My kids have school for 3 more weeks, so I’m trying to get ALL THE THINGS DONE before I’m outnumbered by kids for the summer. 

I have a few projects to share that I didn’t get a chance to blog about this month, including this crib sized Positive quilt.

For the background I used a dainty aqua floral from the line Wildwood by Rifle Paper Co. 

The prints I used were leftover ombre confetti strips from my Trellis quilt, I pulled out some strips that matched this background perfectly.  

This is such a quick quilt to put together, and even more fun with a print  in the background.

If you are still sewing Shimmer blocks along with me in the slowest quilt-a-long in history…you should have 16 blocks after this month!  In June we’ll make the last 4 and sew all 20 blocks together! 

I can’t wait to lay all of my blocks out….although I’m a little scared…it might look horrible with all of my random fabrics!  ;)

A couple of weeks ago I was at Quilt Market in Kansas City.  The lighting was HORRIBLE for photos….so here is the only badly lit photo I took of my booth before I remembered to remove the trash can.  ;)

I kept it super simple since we flew there, and I enjoyed seeing lots of familiar faces and SO much good BBQ during our visit.

We got home just in time to celebrate my Jane turning 3!  I swear I just had her!

All her dreams came true with a Minnie Mouse 4 wheeler…and since then I’ve been following her around the neighborhood for 5 days straight hoping it will eventually run out of batteries.  

Have a wonderful weekend!
