Cowboy Hat Fun

I decided to go through my stash and pull some fabric for little boys. I found this very cute cowboy hat and decided to add stars as the other fabrics. I used the Quilt For Kids pattern. From start to finish it took about 5 hours.

This quilt will go to our local hospital to cheer up a little fella.

Panels And Charms

I just love those charm packs and bought one at my local quilt shop a few months ago. I decided to add some of my fabric to it and make a child's quilt for the local hospital. It is fun but I thought it was a little short. I looked through my panels and found a cute one to go across the top.

I have found it so much easier to find cute little girl fabric. But I have decided that I need to make a few little boy quilts. I am tired of military quilts after putting together so many of those donated blocks.

I love my newly purged sewing room and intend to keep it that way. I have a system to deal with scraps now. I have some nice containers and will toss the smaller ones in there. Once it is filled, it will go with me to my guild meeting to be auctioned off to members. I save the larger ones in precut sizes I know I will use.

My Favorite Colors

When I discovered quilt shop fabric I fell in LOVE with blue and yellow. I collected quite a bit and enjoyed it sitting on my shelf.

I decided to make a quilt to auction off at our guild yard sale and auction next month. I chose on an easy pattern that would show off with lovely fabric. I did not want to cut it into a million little pieces.

I used The Wicked Easy Quilt pattern I found on the internet. I love this so much it is going to be hard to give away. The goods news if I have enough fabric for at least 2 more.

This is close to the size of a twin bed. I would make a lovely over sized lap quilt.

Fun With Pillow Panels

I was given a generous donation of fabric from a friend in my guild. There are lots of those pillow panels in it. I made these 2 quilts from them and really love the one with the teddy bears in the center. It is fairly quick to make and lots of fun.

The one with the cat was using part of 2 charm packs. I love those little pre cuts but have a hard time using them. They just look cute sitting on a shelf in my sewing room.

These will go to our local hospital for the children.
