this quilt is the one amandajean gave a class on in town here and this is my spin on it. i have always wanted to try a ticker tape quilt BUT if you know me at all my motto is go big or go home. :) not a good motto with ticker tape!! :) so i decided to put them together and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. this really is my new favorite quilt. it was so fun playing around with the scraps to see how i wanted the blocks. scrap theropy as amanda calls it!!! :) so true!
here are a couple of the blocks up close. the top one i made a quilt like that one time. it was fun to do that again. the bottom one is what i would think of as true ticker tape.

here is my newest project. a t-shirt quilt. not my most favorite but it is usually the person i'm making it for. :) and that's what it's all about. seeing i'm getting paid for this one i hope they LOVE it!!
we have a young gal at work ready to have a baby and so i wanted to try a pattern from one of my quilt books and i'm happy how it turned out. this pattern is called cubic rhythm from my easy quilt project book. really LOVE that book!!
and last weekend i finally started this quilt that amanda did that quilt a long for. it will be all solids. i've always wanted to try an all solids quilt. so here i go!i wish i had better lighting so you could see just how bright and fun this block really is. i'm going to try a whirlygiggle quilt that's print on print. that's VERY hard for me because i LOVE how white makes things POP! :) but this square is a good start for me. i REALLY LOVE it:) hope you are having a good week. be blessed my friends;)

going through my little scrap bin is very therapeutic. plus look at the treasure i found :) it ended up in the wrong bin. a bigger scrap. this scrap bin should have pieces no bigger that 2 1/2". can you tell i learned to quilt from amanda? i LOVE scraps. she has passed that on. :) i have found some pieces that weren't even usable either. i guess i just couldn't get rid of it at the time :)

i'm feeling all giddy because my friend tara took pictures of my new baby quilt and i LOVE them. how sweet is this quilt on this yellow bench???
this quilt is for my sisters friend who just had a baby. little ava grace. mom is a red gal so i found those owls at the local quilt shop and put the red with them and them some! :)
i just love these pictures of a kids quilt at a school. tara is FABULOUS!!!! :)
this is the back of the quilt. i have wanted to try this kind of a back for a long time and it is really perfect for a baby quilt. this way you don't have to have seams in the back. this quilt finishes at 39" x 51". i'm pretty proud of myself for keeping it small. it was a super fun pattern and i could have just kept going. :)small. this was a super fun pattern and i could have kept going. :) i love the colors of the quilt popping off the slide!! hope you are having a GREAT week!!!
