Disappearing 9 Patch

WOO HOO! I got the quilt top done for Dallas Christmas quilt. Since he spent the weekend up at Grandma and Grandpas house I had plenty of time to get it done. Now I need to practice my free motion quilting so that I can get the quilt completely done in time. I've got a few more ideas for some other quilts rolling around in my head so hopefully I'll have the time to get some of them done.

So here is a picture of the quilt. After Christmas I'll post a pic of his room with the curtains and appliqued pillowcases I made to go with it.

Never Again (unil mine wears out)

This is my kitchen rug. I really love it. I made it about 6(?) months ago by "locker hooking".  Click here to watch a tutorial on youtube. The border is 2 different fabrics and the body of the rug is 3 different fabrics, its not immediately noticeable but it does give it a nice variegated look.

I never touch spirits. Have you some milk? - Batman

My sister asked me to make a Batman quilt for Christmas (not for her) :)
I sort of cheated and bought the squares pre-cut off of ebay. It's hard to find freaking Batman material. Who knew?
I just quilted an inner square on the red blocks and on the yellow I did bats! I'm really pleased with how they came out. I used my quilters foot so that I could see my needle a little better and I think it looks freaking awesome. I know that the 2 year old that is going to get it isn't going to know the time and love that went into it buy my sister and I will. I hope he loves it.

Granny Throw

I made this with a few leftover skeins for my church group Moses Lake Stitches. Everything we make (hats, scarves, blankets, pillowcases, etc.) whether its knit, crochet or sewing gets donated to local organizations that give it to people in need.

Otto the Octopus

So I decided I should put some of my older stuff on here too, so here is Dj's octopus from Christmas '09.
You can purchase the pattern here:
Dallas took this picture especially for my blog. What a great kid!

"Charming" Quilt

So I really like the way this came out. It's got a flannel backing to make it extra cozy.
