Small Quilts

I’ve been busy making a few small quilts lately.  Two for my shop and two for my Mom to give as gifts. The first two are an eye-spy and a pixelated heart.


The eye-spy is sort of feminine, and I have more squares cut to make a masculine version with blue background squares subbing for the lavender.  I may add borders to the heart, it just seems to be floating, maybe a print with the same colors.

Also I finished up this quilt, the borders really helped to make it look “happier”.


The other two are for baby boys.  My client wanted blues and the names added to each.  The first one is for a boy named Leo, I found the really cute appliqué lion and letters at Embroidery Library .  The second quilt, I put together today, in a gingham style quilt for Nicholas.  Nick may get a simple embroidered name on his quilt border though.  Each letter takes about 45 minutes to stitch out.  It would take me longer to stitch the name than to make the top LOL.  The pattern is free over at the Fat Quarter shops blog Three hour baby gingham quilt.img_3078.jpg


I’m also working on the Bonnie Hunter mystery, using her colors and size.  Last year I made the En Provence quilt half size, same number of pieces, but a lot smaller once it was finished (bottom picture).  I like this year’s Mystery colors of melon, turquoise and chocolate, and I only had to pick up a few fat quarters to perk up my variety.

Linking up today with Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for design wall Monday.
