Remember I was working on these sketch blocks a couple weeks ago. Well I finished the baby quilt made with those blocks.
This pic color is a little off but here it is - Crossroad's baby quilt. I made a crossroad baby quilt without houses and showed that one a month ago. It turned out ok. I think the houses needed to be bigger though. I entered 2 quilts in this baby contest at Make Baby Stuff. Com.
This tumbler quilt is the other baby quilt I entered. You can go see them at those links. I was supposed to ask friends to go vote for them but I didn't post my entries to the contest until the last day so I'm not sure it matters anymore. The instructions for the contest said they were looking for modern fabrics and a more modern design for the baby quilt winner. I'm not very sure my quilts meet that exact criteria but it doesn't hurt to try and the prize is Superbuzzy fabric so why not?!
Do you ever feel like your "want to make" list is longer than time could ever allow. I keep seeing such darling quilts that I want to make! It is impossible to start a new quilt before Christmas and after Christmas I'll be prepping for the Bryce Canyon retreat. But I can dream, can't I?
Flora brought me some quilt books and magazines to browse. I found this quilt above in the Quiltmania magazine. That is one fabulous publication. Click the picture. They are so so cute! There were not instructions for this quilt in the magazine but I already have several applique teapot designs made so I could applique my own version with my teapot drawings. I really love that shape.
I really like this quilt too. I love the scrappy texture with the white. The touches of black prints give it character. Each block has 3 different fabrics in them.
Someday, someday I really want to make this quilt. For some reason I've been wanting to make a star quilt lately.
My very very favorite star quilt is found here. You simply must click that and go to Lisa's Blog called Celebrate Creativity in All its Forms. Lisa has amazing taste and talent. Her colors and fabrics are always so lovely. If you have a moment go browse her blog. It is totally worth it. I want that quilt with the bursting star. I keep going back to look at the quilt and then looking at my fabric and thinking what would look good to recreate it. The red burst is a must no matter what fabric I use for the center. I like the muted green around it too. And the solid colors really make this quilt.
So many quilts. So little time.
