Weekend Sewing and Stuff

Hi!  How are ya?  I have been away from the blog but have  been getting my sew on!  I have a couple of finishes to share with you:

Seth's quilt

Seth and me with his quilt

This is a quilt I made for my nephew.  It is a late birthday present for him!  I had the top pieced for a month and just hadn't put it together.  I took my machine with me on our family beach vacay and finished it up there!  Seth is learning to sew, and as you can imagine, he was fascinated with seeing the quilt come together.
The pattern is from Jeni Baker's Modern Plus Quilt Tutorial.  Check it out here.
I used the blue color way from Emily Herrick's Hall Of Fame line.  I backed it with a panel of the Pennant fabric and a gray Colton sheet I picked up at Target.  I also bound it in the Pennant fabric. He absolutely loves it!

March quilt for Believe Circle of do.good.stitches

Finally assembled the March blocks into this cute quilt!  This was my first foray into free motion quilting.  It was lots of fun and I learned tons!  The quilting is not pretty, but the final product turned out so cute.  I had the ladies use the Wonky Cross tutorial from Elizabeth Hartmon.

Baby Cooper's Quilt

Baby Cooper's Robot quilt

This quilt is for my friend's brand new baby!  They chose a robot theme, so, of course, I had to make a robot quilt!  The top is a panel by Kokka, the back is snugly orange flannel.  I bound it with a navy dot. I had so much fun quilting this! I took the opportunity to practice my free motion skills!  There are pebbles, stars, pinwheels, wrenches, lightening bolts, loops, swirls, a road and skylines!  I sure hope they like it!
