Hands2Help Lap Quilt Progress



On my design wall is a lap quilt for the Hands 2 Help Quilt Challenge 2015.  I love pulling fabrics from my stash to see what plays well together.  This quilt began with the light yellow and pink floral print and grew from there.  The blocks are 20" square with various width strips, laid out like a rail fence quilt.  It will be nearly 60" x 80" when finished.  The backing will be a Jennifer Paganelli print in light aqua with a yellow design.


This quilt will be donated to the Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 which gives quilts to 911 dispatchers and their families.  It's about sharing love with our unseen heroes.

Sunday Stash Report {Honey Honey!}




Added to my stash over our relaxing spring vacation was this fun bundle of Honey Honey by Kate Spain.  This will become an unknown quilt top!  I have yardage of the large Tea Rose coordinate in Coral Pink for backing in my stash already, so that completely justifies buying coordinates for the quilt top!  It's usually the other way around, and I have to buy backing to complete a quilt.  I could not keep this fabric out of my cart at $4 a yard, plus, it was looking for a good home where it would be well loved!

Custom Paris France Eiffel Tower Themed Bed Runner {Finished!}



My Friday Finish is a custom Paris France and Eiffel Tower themed bed runner in pinks, gray and white.  My customer emailed me pictures of fabrics she liked, and I was so happy to be able to find many of the exact fabrics while on vacation over spring break!

A bed runner is a great way to introduce color into a bedroom without the larger commitment of changing all of the bedding.



The border, backing, and binding are the same fuschia and medium pink swirl fabric.


Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Layer Cake Slice
  • Size:  32" x 85"
  • Fabric:  Shades of pink from light to magenta, gray, and white with a Paris and Eiffel Tower theme.
  • Batting:  80/20 cotton/poly fusible
  • Quilting:  Allover small meandering on Mrs.Bernina, my old 830.
  • Value:  Super stylish.  
This quilt was a custom order in my Etsy shop and is available as a made to order quilt.
