Red, White & Blue scrap quilt

I think it was at least 3 years ago that I began working on the blocks for this quilt...put it away to work on other projects...took it out again...etc... so I am pleased to say it is finally done!

Each block is "crazy pieced" to a thick foundation fabric...sash allows the seams to lay flat.


Start with an angular center and add alternating light and dark around it.

More of the quilt...


The whole quilt!

I took my rocking chair out to the back yard for some natural light.
Bald eagle print cloth on the back


And a simple label for historical purposes.

Sock Elephant Baby Gift

I took a little break from the quilts in progress...

in order to make a Baby Shower gift for a young friend...

This is Edward the sock elephant.

Also made a Mini diaper bag from Elephant print cloth

Edward is sitting in the nursery organizer; a place to keep diaper change items together.



 Directions to make a sock elephant are found in Sock and Glove by Miyako Kanamori.
Now back to the quilts...
