A fun baby quilt

My sister recently asked me to make her good friend a baby quilt. Now that it's been gifted I can share it. Her nursery theme is Classic Disney.  My sister asked me for a Half Square Triangle (HST) quilt. Here is the inspiration photo my sister sent me. This is a poster that will be hanging in the nursery (I don't know anything more about it than what is in the picture).

So I pulled all the colors from the poster and here are the results!  I love these colors so much, I'm sure I'll be making more quilts with them.

I did straight line quilting on my domestic.

And managed to find the PERFECT backing fabric. These are all classic Disney posters.

For the binding I decided to go with Lime. I hear the mama considered a lime crib, so I think she'll appreciate the little extra lime. 

Quilt stats:
Size: 40" x 54"
Pattern: no pattern
Fabrics: Stash
Quilted: me
Finished: 4/18

A bedrunner

In 2011, I made my mom this king size quilt. My mother, and her mother before her, love to re-decorate so it was time for something new!  After talking with her during a recent visit, we decided a bed-runner was the way to go. Here's the final quilt in her beautiful Florida room.

The pattern is "Pair of Pillows" from Angela Pingel's A Quilter's Mixology. Which I have to say - I love this book. If you like curves, definitely check it out. She's got lots of creative patterns in there. I took a few more pictures before it was sent to it's new home.

All the quilting was done my me on my domestic machine.  The narrow width of this made it so much easier to work with!

The backing is  pieced scraps.

Quilt stats:
Size: approx 40" x 90" (I forgot to measure before sending away)
Pattern: Pair of Pillows, Angela Pingel
Fabrics: Scraps and KonaWhite
Quilted: me
Finished: 4/18
