The latest baby addition to our family is identical twin girls and I was happy to present them with their personalized Tummy Time quilts! Their big sister, Aria’s quilt is all about being a princess and for Ava and Kaleigh it’s Rectangle Strings. I waited until after they were born to quilt them so I could add the name, date and my signature! It’s fun to see strips of Aria’s quilt in these quilts! I’m sure she’ll find them, too. I love the backing fabric and the positive sayings! Especially, “dare to be different!” Perfect for identical twins!It took four of us to hold the babies and the quilts for the picture!Ava’s already trying out her Tummy Time quilt!
The batting is Quilters Dream Puff and the thread is Superior Threads – So Fine! #50.
Leave a comment on my Facebook page, I love to hear from you!
If I’ve counted correctly,this is Tummy Time quilt number 5 this year! And Gavin is Wyatt’s cousin! It was fun to make 2 quilts for my friend’s grandchildren.The center strings are a red flannel with lots of brights and novelties. The batting is Quilters Dream Puff, quilted with one of my favorite freehand quilting designs, Overlapped Looped Spirals using Superior SoFine! #50.Gavin was an early baby so I was quilting this one after he was born which allowed me to stitch his name into one of solid strings!
January is retreat month so I’ll be starting another one to be prepared for the next one!
When Barb and I discussed her quilt, I suggested green thread for the E2E Floral Meander quilting design. I like to match the top and bobbin thread so the green thread would be a nice contrast for the purple backing fabric. I love it! The batting is Quilters Dream Puff, which enhances the quilting, too.We’re playing with a new camera attached to my longarm, so here’s a video of how I quilt my Floral Meander! Enjoy!
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Jack‘s cousin, Hannah, made a scrappy Lone Star quilt with the help of her grandma for 4H. Hannah and family stopped by the studio to take project pictures and watch me quilt some of the quilt.
I put the ruler foot and extended base back on my longarm to make the CC around the points of the Lone Star and SID the star and background, the rest is freehand quilting. Now that my ruler foot is back on, I’ll have to find some more projects for ruler work!
The batting is Quilter’s Dream Puff and the thread is two different colors of Superior Rainbows. When Hannah gets a little taller, maybe I’ll let her quilt on her own quilt like her cousin Jack!

We celebrated Aria’s first birthday last weekend and like Landon, I made a Lil’ Twister for her. Iowa Hawkeye fabric is perfect for this family and I added a 2 1/2″ border after sewing the twisters together. This is so fun to make, but I’ll need to get another pack of Kona charms squares to make more!Here’s what the quilt looks like before the Lil’ Twister cutting. The smaller one is the waste squares from Landon’s Lil’ Twister before cutting with the Itty Bitty template.Here’s the Itty Bitty Twister sewn together. The cutting mat grids are an inch and the twisters are about the size of a quarter! It’s tiny! This is still in the unfinished phase, I haven’t decided how to quilt and finish it!After playing in the splash pad, we got Aria to cooperate and get a picture of us! Isn’t she adorable?! The back of the Lil’ Twister is Hawkeye fabric, too, perfect for a table topper during football season!
Here’s photo progression of making Landon’s Lil’ Twister quilt, time for you to make one, too!! If you click on the pictures, there’s a description of the process, too.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
