Baby Boy Quilt

Lynn made a sweet baby quilt for a boy. Nice variety of blue patches. Bubbles pantograph.

Cute backing. I appreciated the extra work she did when she put the extra piece inside the backing rather than the outside edge of the backing. I didn’t have to be sure the edge of the quilt didn’t hit that seam.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Quilt Show BOM

At last, the stars are completed and attached to the center.

While I’m not new to paper piecing, I don’t do it often. I learned to take a couple stitches past the line when beginning and ending my stitching line. This time I learned that when the line will be on the outside when you remove the paper, stitch all the way off the paper. I had to fix a lot of the seams on the outside edge because they weren’t completely sewn together.

I love the staggered stars. Easy to stagger them and they maintain their “star” look without the strong secondary pattern when pieced end to end.

Ashley’s stars are made. Just have to attach them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Scrappy Stars Quilt

Liz has made another great scrappy quilt but this time with a lot of Halloween fabrics. During the quilting process I look at the design very closeup. Then when I take a picture I’m so surprised. What a pretty quilt, full of interest and movement and lots of gorgeous color.

This quilt is very large so it is draped over my longarm.

Used Simplicity pantograph and Quilters Dream Wool batting.

Wonder how many pieces in this quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mods Doll Panels

I love these doll panels. They have themes (like A Walk In The Woods) and such cute details. I decided to make Mr. and Mrs. Bunnikins for my granddaughter Juliet. Mrs. has a skirt with 3 pockets that hold 3 baby bunnies. Mr. has a bow tie and shorts with suspenders.

I’ve never been good at stuffing things. They’re always lumpy. So I looked up how to stuff and this time I was successful.

Since baking in the Rv is way too much work, I started baking when I got home. Watched The Great British Baking Show and decided to try a Charlotte Russe cake. Inside there’s 2 skinny layers of sponge, layer of raspberry jam, layer of raspberry mousse. Topped with whipped cream and raspberries. Took hours to do everything.

I used the version I found on Natasha’s Kitchen website except I made my lady fingers. It looked pretty but I was wishing it had stronger raspberry flavor.

Then I tried King Arthur Flour’s recipe for Pane Bianco. That turned out pretty good but next time I’ll roast my own tomatoes rather than buy sun dried tomatoes. I added black olives in addition to the basil, cheese and garlic.

I’m going to experiment with hand pies next.

Thanks for stopping by.

Two More Quilted Beauties.

Anne made this interesting purple quilt. The Bubbles pantograph she picked out was perfect for it.

Jean finished a quilt that she started in a class, maybe 2 years ago. Teacher was Kimberly Einmo. She enlarged the design. I also took the class but didn’t even get 1 block done and I abandoned the project. Way to go Jean. Pantograph was Shell Shock.

Thanks for stopping by.

Friends Quilts

There’s two friends quilts I didn’t post before I left on my trip.

Carolyn gave me two of these cute baby Quilts with Minkie backing. So soft and cuddly.

Marian made a lovely quilt that reminded me of the sea and sunsets. Pantograph is Ocean Froth.

Picture above shows backing with quilt top.

Thanks for stopping by.
