My latest quilt projects

Last December I said to myself, I should make a goal of one new quilt a month.

Then I said to myself, are you crazy?  So, I scraped that goal for something more realistic. Like making quilts for all eight grandkids.  

Got Riley’s denim quilt finished and delivered in April.

I made Piper’s “heart of my heart” quilt last summer…

Addy and Kendall both asked me to make them quilts last month.  Maybe Christmas gifts?

And I have started the next quilt for a grandchild.

My latest idea is a “heart and nine-patch”.

I pulled these from pInterest…

Hearts and 9 patch
This one came from Amish Country Lanes. Click on the photo and you’ll go to the webpage.
Hearts and 9-patch quilt
And this one is from Almost-Amish.

I’m changing the pattern up with embroidered hearts rather than appliqued.

heart patch
My first attempt to make patches with embroidery on my new sewing machine! (The blue lines will wash out)

Here’s some of the fabric for the “nine-patch” blocks. I also have a brown and white gingham and a brown and cream dot.  Wanted to mix a pink and white gingham in but haven’t found one I like yet.

Milk sugar and flowers fabric
This quilt will obviously be going to a little girl!  The fabric is Penny Rose Milk Sugar and Flower from Riley Blake.

The pieces will each be 2″.  I wanted them small so I could “fussy-cut” those sweet little kitties, bunnies and birdies. This will make a 6″ nine-patch block.

I’ve already got all the embroidered heart blocks finished.  Next step is cutting out and sewing together all those little 2″ bits.  

I’ll give you an update, hopefully soon!
