Quarter Triangle Quilt

This is another top that has been finished for awhile.

I quilted it with a simple panto in green thread to add some more color
and I used a hot pink/purple thread on the back to
make the quilting pattern show
(not sure I did the right thing)
Yea!! Another one finished.
I have about 4 more throw size and
two queen size to go
and am saving my very favorite for last
I hope you are having a fun weekend doing the things you like
until later - Carol

Utopi Quilt

I love this Utopi fabric from Art Gallery and love the simple strip quilt I made with it
The colors are so bright and cheerful and the prints are so cute
I wanted to make it a little wider so
 I just did two side borders
I like this look
and I just did straight line quilting
I love the way the straight lines look
I seem to be getting so much done lately
Some of these quilt tops have been finished
way too long
I hope you are having a fun day doing the things you enjoy doing
until later - Carol

Minions Quilt

My grandson is crazy for Minions so I had to make him a quilt.

I bought the panel and thought I would do a simple border around it
with one of the fabrics in the minion line
but I happened upon this free pattern
and decided to make it.
the back is done in this cute minion print.
We have 8 grandchildren 3 boys 5 girls
ages 18 months - 17 years old.
When we have them over for the night we divide them
into two nights - girl's night, and boy's night.
Last time they stayed we had two days of going to see
the Minions at the Movie Theater.....
although I prefer characters that can talk, it wasn't
as bad as I thought it would be.
Everyone had a good time!
I hope you are having a good day!
until later - Carol

Quarter Circle Quilt

I saw this quilt in a magazine and fell in love with it. I pulled out my computer right away and got started ordering the fabric.

I think my favorite thing is this bicycle fabric
It was very easy to make, you just applique circles onto a square
then you cut the square down the center horizontally and vertically and
then mix them up and sew 4 different ones back together.
Now all that is left to do is to sew a corner triangle onto each
corner of the block and sew the blocks together to make a quilt.
I used a solid grey fabric for the binding and the quilt back
and now I am ready to snuggle up in it!!
I hope you are having a fun week doing the things you enjoy
until later - Carol
