Out to Sea Quilt

Here is my last make of 2016. It is a queen size quilt I made for the beach house with "Out to Sea" fabric.
I liked the fabric so much that I didn't want to chop it up into small pieces.
I found a quilt on Pottery Barn that I like and used it for my inspiration.
After I had started quilting it I saw my map in the upper left corner is upside down - ugh!!
All is well though, the top two row's fold down to cover it when the bed is made so
it doesn't show.
I used the pink anchor fabric shown above to make roman shades for the room and plan to add
Navy Blue curtains to add a little color to the outside of the window.
This quilt has already been slept under by my daughter, who said it is so soft and cuddly
that she wanted to take it home with her when she left.
I forgot to take a picture of the back - I used Navy Blue and white Chevron Fabric.
I hope you have a fun week-end doing the things you like to do.

Quilts for My Daughters

I thought I had posted pictures of this quilt but I didn't. This is another finish for 2016.

this quilt was inspired by the Bestie quilt's  I made for my granddaughters.
I made 2 of these- one for each daughter.
I found the embroidery designs at Bunnycup Embroidery
and thought they were so cute I could hardly wait to use them.
you may remember this design from the pillow
covers I made for my sisters
I found this Pearls & Lace Heart from Hang to Dry and it
seemed perfect for this quilt.
I hope you are having lots of fun doing the things you like to do.

Bestie Quilt

I found some cute fabric panels and had to make some Bestie quilts for my four granddaughters.
I think it turned out so cute!
here are the finished quilts together
I was lucky enough to find a machine embroidery
design like the panel and stitched it up
with Nene Loves Ya under it
(I was Mimi but the grandkids changed it to Nene, lol)
these quilts were made first to give as Christmas gifts
then I thought they were so cute  I had to make the
quilts I already showed you for my son and two daughters.
Now my daughter wants me to make a rag quilt for my
granddaughters bed so that will be next and I want to
join the swoon quilt along on instagram and I still have
a few quilts that need to be quilted and ....
I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season and the New Year
ahead holds lots of good thing for you!!!

Penguin Cheer Quilt Finished

Yes I did finish my Penguin Cheer Quilt in time for Christmas, I just didn't get around to showing you.

and here is the back, it isn't vertical on the quilt
it's just the way I pulled it up for the picture.
It's hard to fold over for picture taking with one hand
and without getting a shadow of you in the picture. haha

VW Bug Rag Quilt

I made this rag quilt for my sweet granddaughter Madison,
I think it turned out so cute!
She got her driver's license this year
and drives a little white VW bug.
When I found this applique I knew I had to make her a quilt
I put a little white VW on every  row
and added her personalized plate that she has
I was lucky enough to find this flannel to use for the back of the quilt
I was happy with the way the quilt turned out and
she loved it!!!
 I like the way the color from the backing show's in the ragged seams on the front.
I finished this quilt in July and just haven't found time to show it to you yet.
I still have a few more to show you.
until later.....Carol

Some Crochet Squares and a Little Rabbit

I've been busy trying to finish up a
crochet blanket for my grand-daughter
I pinned this block from Pinterest and wanted to make
it with pink, grey and white yarn for myself, but then my
grand-daughter saw it and asked me to make it for her.
How could I say no to that sweet, pretty face????
She picked out the yarn and I started to crochet.
This is will be my first granny square blanket.
It has been good practice and I have learned a lot.
I can't say that I will still be making my blanket though - hehe!
When we bought our beach house I never thought we would have a
rabbit living under our stairs. I never thought rabbits lived at the beach.
I'm a little jealous that he gets to live there and I have to go back and
forth - (giggle)
There was even a Mama fox with her babbies last year. I haven't
seen them this year but it was fun watching them grow up.
I hope you are having a fun day!
