Farmers wife quilt-a-long

I just got my copy of the Farmer's Wife quilt book. So far I'm loving it! I can't wait to start the quilt-a-long... But I promised myself I'd finish my diamond quilt first.

Paw quilting

I have a way to go on my paw-quilting but so far I like what I see. I can't wait until I'm done and can start the binding.

Paw-quilting underway

Back of current project.

I decided to paw-quilt (hand quilt for humans) this quilt so it's taking me s little bit longer.

Zig zag baby blanket.

It feels good to have this one done. It was rather simple to make and super soft. I ended up quilting it with just stitching in the ditch along the zig-zag.

Looks Good enough to eat!

Done quilting for the day.

Baby boy quilt

I have seen a couple zig- zig quilts on other blogs that I really liked. So i decided to give it a try. I cut up about 4 1/2 yards into 6" strips. Than I cut each strip into a 6" square and cut each square diagonally. Now I just need to find some time to sew it all together.

Just working on my to do list almost done putting on the first border.

Manly quilt- back

Here's a little peak of the back.

Manly quilt

This is a flannel quilt I made for my friend Sheeba and her Human owner Andy. It's a little wrinkly because I had it in storage. It was made from 6 ft quarters an additional 1/2 yard of the beige trim and 2.5 yards of the brown.

Quilted flower!

The back...


It's finished-- almost

Just a few more flowers to quilt on but for the most part I'm done thanks to my new machine. The fabric I used was from Moda-sugar pop I think. The idea came from a larger blanket I saw on the Moda Bakeshop. It took me two charm backs a half yard of the blue, brown, and pink, and two yards of the yellow-green.

New 2nd machine

I am way too impatient to put off quilting until I get my old machine fixed... So a bought a much less expensive machine to get my sewing fix.
