Woven Ribbon Lap Quilt

On Friday I received a copy of Quilt Design Software I purchased using gift cards I earned through SwagBucks {have I said lately how much I love SwagBucks?} I spent some very precious seconds playing with it on Sunday.  Here is an idea that I have had floating in my head for a while now.

Fabric Yardage Estimates to create a 54.5″ by 54.5″ quilt are as follows:

1 Yard of Brown

1 yard of Blue {vertical blocks}

1 yard of Blue {horizontal blocks}

2+ yards of green for blocks and binding

{these estimates do not include fabric for backing}

This program was super easy to figure out.  I love all the down loadable projects available on-line, but do wish I had the pricier version that would allow me to play with my favorite fabric lines.

PS ~ regarding the above design; it is based on several different quilts I have seen of this general¬†design.¬† Please don’t create a quilt of this design and claim the design as 100% your own.¬† As with many quilt designs created using a common block, there are many talented quilt designers that have used this block in many beautiful quilts before me.

A ‘Lovely’ quilt for me.

Just what I needed… another project, but…

I got a charm pack of Moda’s Lovely and fell in love.¬† I had been reading about the Naked Bed Challenge, and unfortunately it applies to me.¬† My bed suffers the shame of being covered by a store-bought fluffy comforter.¬† No illusions of a handmade quilt has ever even touched my bed, until now.

As much as I love tons of different fabrics, I have found it extremely hard to find a fabric line I wanted to use for a bed quilt.¬† So I figured I would just keep the Naked Bed challenge in the back of my head for later {another project for the ‘To-Do List’}.¬† But of course now that I am working to finish up projects, and have fabrics for several quilts, I found the perfect fabric and have added another quilt {a queen-size one at that} to my list.¬† Here are some fabric shots.¬† It even already has a name; Charming Jelly Cabins.

I have the jelly roll strips and charms sorted and stacked to create the log cabin blocks.¬† I can’t wait to start, but need to knock out a couple other small sewing projects before starting on this… like Mr. SD’s work shirts.¬† Can you believe he found more for me to put his name patches on?

Also over the weekend I completed a quick baby quilt {details here} for a baby shower at church on Sunday.¬† Can’t believe it, but I got the whole thing done in about 6 hours including breaks to play with Miss ‘V’.

Fabrics for Quilting Projects

Here are my newest fabrics for specific¬†projects.¬† I don’t know that they are trully WIPs yet, but they will be once I have a chance to start pieceing and cutting.¬† Each set already has a set pattern to be followed, I just need a moment to get each one started.¬† All the yardage is from my favorite quilt shop, Fat Quarter Shop.¬† I scored the charms packs off of eBay.

Here are the Moda Fresh Flowers charm packs and yardage to create a matching-nonmatching quilt for Baby Diva.¬† This way both of the girls with have the ‘same’ quilts.¬† You can find finished pictures of Ms. Diva’s quilt here.

Here is my HSTs quilt project.  I am really liking the diamond design being used in the Warm/Cool Quilt Along, and think I will use that layout.  Or I may use the Sunday Best layout.

And here is my attempt at getting a jump on Christmas.  I am thinking these would make a great snowball table runner.

Postage Stamp Quilt Fabrics

Here are the fabrics I am using to make a Postage Stamp following the directions for the P.S. I Quilt Postage Stamp Quilt-Along.¬† I stayed away from any solids… I just love my prints!¬† The fabrics on the left are all coordinates, and then I am adding the aqua clouds print by Moda {far right fabric} to use as my solid white subsitute.¬†¬†Starting with¬†Jelly Rolls would save time, but I fell in love with these fabrics and think it will be worth it in the end to make 2.5″ strips myself from this yardage.¬† I may even opt to use a 2″ strip so that the finished ‘postage stamps’ are 1.5″ finished.¬† Haven’t decided yet.

Here are some photos of what I have done to organize these fabrics.
