Wonky Mendocino

Yay! This quilt was made for Avery's toddler bed....when she gets out of her crib. And I don't know when that will be because I like that when I put her in bed, she can't get out. She's also going through a phase where she has lots of excuses to not go to sleep...her fave is "I'm hungry! Noodles, applesauce, yogurt!"

I backed this quilt with Minky.....I quilted the top to the batting then added the minky on the back and binded it. I learned a big lesson though...the top and batting shrunk a lot more than the minky, so it's kinda floppy. Oh well! Now I know i need to prewash next time use use minky on the back.

I made these using scraps....they were a lot of work for such a small block. But I LOVE the look of them.....I won't actually be using them in the kitchen - they are too pretty!

Happy new year! This is my first finished quilt of 2010....I officially had it done before the end of 09 but I still needed to bind it!
It was made WITHOUT using triangles! I used this tutorial and winged the size of it. It was SUPER easy and pieced together really fast. It is a gift for friends our ours that are expecting their second....and the sex is a surprise!

2009 quilts!

2009 quilts!, originally uploaded by 30andquilting.

I had a blast in 2009 learning how to quilt, purchase fabric, start a blog, join the LA Modern Quilt Guild, get 2 girlfriends to start quilting, and most of all - making all these lovely projects! Of course I actually own like 5 of them because the rest I gave away as gifts....

Excited for 2010!
