Also I whipped up this cute baby panel, all I did was add the last 2 borders and quilt and bind. Both of these quilts are samples for a local store. Happy Quilting and thanks for stopping by!

I finished up this last weekend, the pattern is Urban Beads by Sewkindofwonderful.com. It is a lot of sewing and trimming but I love the results. I chose to do it a little different than in her pattern-Jenny used all solids(12) to make hers. I used 3 solids(aqua, majenta, black) and 3 prints(chartruese), but in doing this I had to have more fabric of each-you will need 45" of each as you will be cutting a bit differently doing it my way. And there will be waste. Doing it Jenny's way there is no waste.

Well it's actually been done a week but just haven't taken the time to blog about it yet. I designed this table runner from something I had seen on Pintrest a while back, don't cha just love Pintrest!! The quilting is from a new book on the market from Jodi Robinson called Modern Simplicity that has some fresh new modern quilting designs in it. Check it out! I used Hobbs batting and Glide thread and had lots of fun quilting it up.

A couple of my finishes from last week. This yellow/gray one I really had fun quilting using designs from Angela Walters book and class I took from her last year at MQS. The piecing pattern can be found on her site also. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting and glide thread.
This one is all machine appliqued, then quilted. It is a Joined at the Hip pattern. A great patriotic wall hanging. I also sold this one too! Linking up at Stitch by Stitch

Oh yes last week was a busy week, our DD and DSIL had grandson #2!! So we babysat the not quite 2yr old part of the time. The other part I managed to get the bindings on the last 3 donation quilts and got them delivered to Ronald McDonald house, where they were well received. I donated 17 this year, what an awesome feeling!!
Now that I have all those quilts done and delivered I am putting together a few things for a spring craft show that I have to deliver to in a few short weeks, YIKES I better get busy! But first a pic of one of the wall hangings I also finished for that.

here. The skirt/vest are from a Simplicity pattern, the Tshirt I took 2 different patterns and combined them.
The brown/blue dresses and the orange/pink are a pattern from here. The pink/brown is her pattern also except that I added the sleeves from another pattern for a different twist.
Today I am trying a new pattern out so stayed tuned!

Starting on the far left is one I created after getting inspired by one on Pintrest, the next one is a spin off of a quilt pattern called Fractured in the Quilting Modern book. The next 2 leaf ones are a spin off of Cherryroll vine wallhanging from Cherrywood fabrics and I thought why not make table runners. And the last 2 are my own design using the linen squares that were already cut and given to me by my friend Cynthia. She had made a quilt and these were leftovers. I used the interfacing method of applique where you sew interfacing onto the squares and then turn them right side out and I used the hand applique stitch on my Janome Horizon 7700 with smoke invisible thread and it really does look hand appliqued! Off they go into my 'to be quilted' pile now.

I hope you all aren't getting bored with seeing my quilts I am making to donate to our local Ronald McDonald house. At this time of year I focus a lot of my time and energy into making these quilts so the kids can be wrapped in warm hugs while they are not feeling so well. These are all lap size and each are quilted with a different design. I actually used a couple panto's this time-yes I know shock! I really do like freehanding best however I just thought I should whip out a panto this time and the first I used was Happy Times on the pink yellow quilt and it went so smoothly that I used Square Spiral on the brown/yellow one and that too just flowed-guess it was just my day to use panto's.
The Quick Strippie quilts pattern can be found on Mary's website. I wish I knew where the idea from the purple/white squares quilt came from, I know I saw something on the web but don't have a link. So if you recognize it please let me know! Anyway thanks for looking and I really do love getting comments, I read and try to answer each one :-)
Linking up at Stitch by Stitch today.

This is what I have accomplished this past week-well the quilting and the binding to be specific. The quilt pattern is Quick Strippie from Mary and it is indeed quick, thanks Mary! I quilted each one with a different freehand pattern. They were so fun and quick to make up, these will be donated to our local Ronald McDonald house. I am currently working on more :-)

If you have not tried zentangling, give it a try it is so fun and freeing! There is lots of instructions and ideas all over the web. Pintrest was my inspiration today :-) I used Sharpie black fine point pen, and also their black fine point marker.
I should have some show and tell next week from the retreat. I have lots of projects to work on, most of them are quite simple so I hope to get tons done!

And this simple quilt pattern made up so cute with sweet little lion and bear prints. The back was a real challenge in that I used almost every inch of fabric left from the front! Next week I should be able to get these delivered to the local fabric store for their samples. Airtex batting and glide thread was used on both of these quilts.
