Dahlia for my Mom and Kyle

 The annual "Make a Giant Quilt for One of my Parents" this year went to mom and step dad, Kyle.

My husband helped my pick out the pattern. My older sister helped pick out the color scheme, and my younger sister helped me pick out the fabrics. (I think. I have worked on it for a year so that might be wrong.)

 It is a giant Dahlia.  I was so scared of the curved piecing and 'y' seams that I made a practice one first before I did the real thing!

Enjoy the pictures!

(Here it is on my floor in my kitchen...the only way you could see the whole thing!)

Crazy Quilt

 This is fun crazy quilt I made with my local quilt guild.

There is 12 different block on front. All with varying degrees of difficulty and craziness.

I thought the back should be fun too so I chose a bright multi colored chevron and lovely piece of teal fabric.

I love how bright and fun it is! It was really hard to see how great it was going to be when I made each block, but I LOVE how it turned out!

I have it listed in my Etsy Shop here! Check it out!

New Year!

Welcome to 2015!

I had a few Christmas presents that I made, that I wanted to share with you. But I either forgot to take pictures of them, or I am waiting for better pictures.  So you will have to wait for that.

But looking ahead to the new year, I still have some of the same goals. Make at least one quilt a month, with another year long project, e.i. Christmas present. I want to learn some new skills and improve on the skills I have. I think I might actually try and enter one of my quilts into a quilt show.  But I think I need just a little more confidence for that one.

So keep an eye out for more posts about my projects and thing that are going on!
