I actually finished the whole thing last Sunday. It felt good to complete something ahead of schedule for a change. These fabrics are all from Amy Butler’s Daisy Chain line. I am crazy about this line ( I have it in greens too), and the blues are perfect for my mom. I am wondering how it would have turned out with a light blue solid square. I’m generally not crazy about white, but thought it made the most sense with the monochromatic scheme of the quilt. I got my inspiration for this one from a quilt I saw in greens on One Shabby Chick’s blog.

Well, here they are, my first ever quilts. I think I may have a new obsession. Seriously, 2009 may be the year of the quilts. I am finding it extremely satisfying work.

Here is Cathy’s quilt, made from Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden line:


And the back:


The recipient with her new quilt:


My sister’s quilt is a stacked coins design. I knew that Ali liked the brown Trailing Blossoms fabric that I used on the back, so I chose the rest of the fabric from Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern line as well.



Peak of the back:


I didn’t get a good picture of Al with the quilt, but she really liked it.

Now, I’m working on one for my mom’s birthday. I got the quilt top done today, and I hope to quilt it tomorrow so I can bind it during the week.

Here’s the gift for my cousin’s wife that I mentioned earlier this week. It’s the Market Bag by Sandi Henderson, and the fabric is from Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room line.The interior is a light pink twill. I really love this bag. It’s nice and roomy and has a fantastic pocket – two actually, but I only did the interior pocket because I didn’t want to take away from the interesting print.

I’m not going to post my sis and mom’s gifts until they receive them, but here’s the quilt top for my mother-in-law’s present. This is my first experience with quilting, though it’s something I’ve wanted to get into for quite a while. So far, I’ve just sewn the quilt top together, but I’m a little nervous about the actual quilting process. I love the freshness of these fabrics. They’re all from Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden line. I’lll let you know how it comes out!
