Applique Owl Baby Quilt

I made this adorable baby quilt with applique owls and the word love across the front. It is made using Moda's Ruby fabrics. I straight line quilted across about every 1/4 inch. This is the first time that I have used straight line quilting and I absolutely love the way it turned out even though it took forever! I still have to hand stitch a binding on and wash it with a color catcher to make sure none of the fabrics will run. I pieced the backing which I must say ties it in to the front quite nicely! Next up for quilting is another applique quilt that I has been in my pile of UFO's. Time to get busy getting some of them done!

Applique Butterfly Quilt and applique owl quilt

I finished this beautiful raw edge applique quilt with purple butterflies today.

I stitched around each butterfly using a raw edge applique to allow for fraying. I put it through the wash to start the fraying process and am thrilled with how it came out. You can find it listed in my ETSY shop here.

I have already started on my next quilt using a fabric by Moda called Ruby. It is a wonderful line of reds, aquas and grays. I appliqued owls onto the front along with the word Love. I made a pieced backing to match and will be quilting it this week. Aren't these colors yummy??

Happy Quilting!

Butterfly applique baby blanket with Minky

I have my first finish for 2012! I made this adorable baby blanket with applique butterflies on the minky. It was fairly easy to make except I need to work on getting my fabric to lay flat with the Minky. I have a slight pucker with the butterfly fabric but not too bad. I will definitely be making more of these in the future!
