Judy's Quilt

This was a commissioned quilt that my Mother-in-law had me make for her Mom for her 80th birthday.  I have to say I struggled with this quilt because I was not in love with the fabric.  While I knew that Judy would love the fabric, it is very outside of my normal bright and colorful quilts.  I love a pattern that has minimal scraps and knew that this was the pattern for me.  There were just enough scraps to make a pillow too!  My Mother-in-law like the fabric and I was able to find it from a few different vendors and got to work. 

I pieced and quilted this one.  The fabric is Strawberry Fields by Moda with bamboo batting.

Red Dress Quilt

After I finished the quilt for J I started this quilt.  I am a Chapter Advisor for Alpha Phi and wanted to donate something for our annual Red Dr.ess Gala.  Parents and sisters attend this event to raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation.  I knew that I needed to make a quilt that was fun and symbolized our philanthropy.  I found this cute pattern on Etsy and went to work. 

I am proud to say that the quilt brought in quite a bit of money (not sure of the exact total) and one of our sisters is the proud owner!  I was so happy to find out that the women love the quilt so much that they used it as a decoration during one of our formal recruitment events!

(I love a pieced back!!)
The fabric is "Sew Cherry" by Bee in my Bonnet with bamboo batting and quilted with a meandering pattern.

Trish and Brad's Quilt

How can you not give a quilt as a wedding gift?  I have known Trisha since she was a little girl.  We grew up next door to each other during the summers.  I was so excited when I found out she was getting married and even more excited that she got married on our 6th anniversary!

I saw a tutorial on P.S. I Quilt and fell in love with the fabric,  growing up together in the summer and a Moda fabric called "Sunkissed," count me in!!
