Watercolor Portrait

My good friends got married the end of this last summer and I wanted to create something unique for them as a gift. They both love hand-made things and after gathering inspiration from different individuals that create watercolor portraits for a living, I started working on one for them. This is how it turned out!

Liam's Quilt Complete

I finished up Liam's quilt just in time. I presented it to his parents a week and a half before he entered the world and they loved it. I'm very happy with how it turned out and I learned a lot from my first 60 degree angle triangle quilt. I am very fond of the colors I found to use and I think it will be perfect for little Liam.

Quilt for Liam

After I finish the quilt listed below I am taking another page out of craftyblossom's book to take a whack at this little gem. My family has a special little boy coming in November that I have decided to make it for.

I bought an equilateral triangle ruler for the project so I'm excited to see how that works for me. I will be sticking pretty closely to the color choices here, but will have to modify the size.

Some Inspiration

I am starting another baby quilt for a family friend. I am basing my design on this one by craftyblossom.

I haven't decided what color to use for the backing fabric or blanket binding just yet, but the top are these exact gray colors :) I like how simple and clean the design is.

Birthday Quilt for a Girl Named Everette

I also finished and mailed the quilt I was working on for that special little girl mentioned in a previous post: Everette. The fabrics look so great together and I hope she get's as much use out of this baby blanket as I did out of mine :)

There's is something about making things for others that brings me such joy when I'm working on a project. It keeps me motivated to see it through to the end. 

Wedding Quilt Complete

I finished the quilt for our friend's wedding and got it all wrapped up for the big day. The couple loved it and I hope it is something they keep for years to come.

First queen sized quilt, done! Now on to some more baby quilts for the numerous friends of mine that are expecting.
