November 14th

Thank you Mdm Samm and Amy for another fun blog hop.
Your hard work is greatly appreciated.
A big thank you to the sponsor of this blog hop
 Camelot Fabrics

I have a few quilty things to share with you today, 
all are easy and fast to make...
I hope you like them.

The first project is a donation quilt suitable for a sports enthusiast
and a pillow case.  
I made this quilt especially 'For the Boys' blog hop.
It is a quick and easy pattern...
cut, sewn, quilted and bound in a week.

I used a collection of sport prints from my stash, baseball, football, basketball.
The background is Kona cotton...charcoal grey.
I quilted it with sports equipment and the quilting
 is looking much better than the first time I tried this pantograph.


The directions for a lap size 48" x 68" can be found HERE.
I called the pattern Cobblestone Path.

I am working on the the fabric requirements for 
quilts measuring 60" x 84" and for 72" x 84"
Follow me by GFC, email, Feedly or bloglovin
and you will not miss will be posted on my blog.

A few years ago
I made a similar quilt using Fair and Square
by Amanda Jean.
I donated it to Margaret's Hope Chest.

Here are a few more quilts and things I've made...some for
big boys and some for little boys.
This is the second quilt I ever made...back in 2001.
It was a flimsy for a long time and finished it about 2005.
 It is still one of my favorite quilts...a quilt for my DH.
It is wonky log cabin blocks made with homespuns
and backed with flannel.  It's a cozy one!!
You can find the tutorial for the wonky log cabin block HERE.
DH's Wonky Log Cabin
This summer I made another chenille quilt, perfect for a little boy.
This is such a happy quilt.
Cowboy Chenille Blanket
...this panel quilt was a quick and easy project...

...and a quilt with puppy dogs, kitty cats and balloons
was a fun quilt I made for Quilts for Kids...
I used Henry Glass Happy Town fabric by Jacquelynne Steves
...this special quilted bear I made for my grandson.
He quilted the fabric and
I made it into a teddy bear and 
gave it to him at Christmas  2 years ago.
Kyler's Teddy Bear
and last...what little boy wouldn't like a crayon bag 
to express his creativity.
Thanks for visiting.
I hope you come back for another visit.
