Blue Windows Small Quilt

This is another small quilt I recently finished.  It measures 16 in square.  It is hand and machine pieced; machine quilted.  I intend to swap it as part of the ALQS round 10.

This one hopefully shows some of the quilting.

Toes in the Water Small Quilt

I took the photo of my toes in water a few years back during a vacation to the gulf shores.  I printed it onto fabric and made this small quilt.  It  measures 16 in square. It is machine pieced.  While I machine quilted along the diagonal thin strips, it is mostly hand quilted with small circles (bubbles).

Here you can see some of the quilted circles and the binding which I managed to line up with one of the diagonal strips.

Triangle to Rectangle Shawl

I knit this shawl using the pattern A Beginner’s Triangle by Amy Detjen.  The yarn is Cascade Yarns Kid Seta Noir.  I didn’t want it to be a triangle but love the pattern of the lace. When the width got to be approx 18 in I stopped the increases.  Blocked the shawl is approx 80 in long by 22 in wide.

Mini Mocha Lace Scarf

This lace scarf was knit using the pattern Mini Mochi Easy Lace Scarf by Melanie Lewis.  The yarn is Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi.  It is a simple pattern that produces a lovely scarf.  This scarf measures approx 10 in X 78 in. The first photo shows the color best.

Colors, Dark to Light, Quilt

This small quilt, approx 34.5 in x 38.5 in, was made using 5 in squares from a fabric sample pack.  Same color squares were sew together with 0.5 in white strips (1 in with seam allowance).  The rows were sew together with 1 in white strips (1.5 in with seam allowance).  I added white fabric along the end of each row as need, moving the colors over by a half inch.  Then strips of white where added on the top and bottom.  The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.

This photo show some of the quilting.

Red Lace Shawl — WIP

This shawl is a work in progress (WIP).  It is being knitted using Cascade Yarns Kid Seta Noir.  The pattern is A Beginner’s Triangle by Amy Detjen.  I didn’t want it to be a triangle but love the pattern of the lace so when the width got to be approx 18 in I stopped the increases.  I am now continuing to knit the shawl at as if a rectangular shawl.  When it gets as long I want it to be minus the length of the “increasing width” length at the start I will begin to decrease as the pattern is written.

Five Fabric Postcards

I made these fabric postcards a few weeks ago.  They were made specifically to be donated to the Pet Postcard Project.  Each postcard is 5 in X 7 in.  For this first one, I fussy cut the dogs which were then machine appliqued onto the flag.  I then machine quilted the flag before assembling the postcard and binding.

This one features a fussy cut cow wearing a Christmas wreath which is machine appliqued onto the background fabric.  As with the first, it was machine quilted before assembling and binding.

This one is pieced, then machine quilted before assembling and binding.

For this one I machine appliqued a fussy cut elephant, then machine quilted before assembling and binding.

This one and the flag with the dogs are my favorites.  The fussy cut girl, dog, and grass are machine appliqued to the white background.  It was then machine quilted before assembling and binding.
