Baby Quilt and A Class!

I showed ya'll a sneak peak of the applique on this quilt a few days ago and now it's finished and on it's way to it's owner!! I really love how this quilt turned out!! Super cute and really fun!! I hope little Jackson likes it!

 I used this cute paw print for the back since the little guy's nursery is puppy dog themed!

Next up, I realized that I never showed ya'll the pillows I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas! I love Cathedral Windows...lots of work but totally worth it!!  If you live in the Houston, TX area and are interested in learning this technique....I'm teaching a class at SunFlower Quilts on February 19th, 2011 from 1pm-4pm!   Be sure to go and sign up before the class gets full!  Hope to see you there!

Easy & Fast Heart Garland Tutorial

Easy &Fast Heart Garland Tutorial


1 Valentine’s Charm Pack or Valentine’s colored scrap fabrics
Rick Rack OR Ribbon
Scrap Batting pieces about 5” X 5” (large enough for charm square)
Pinking Shears
Matching Thread

1. Choose two charm squares (one for front of heart and one for back of heart) and one piece of batting.
2. Trace a heart shape on all three pieces (2 fabrics and 1 batting) and cut out with pinking shears.

3. Layer one fabric wrong side up then put rick rack on top of fabric leaving a few inches from the end. Next put batting on top of rick rack and then put the other fabric heart on top right side up. This is making a quilt sandwich with the two fabrics, batting, and rick rack.

4. Quilt as desired. This would be a great time to play with fun stitches on your sewing machine that you’ve never used before!

5. Continue until you have as many hearts as you desire, remembering to leave a few inches between the hearts.

Your garland is now finished, hang and enjoy!!
