Monkey See...Monkey Do

While taking photographs of the debate class practicing, I saw a cute sock monkey hanging around.  Of course, that was the next inspiration for making a got it --- Sock Monkey Quilt.  Pictures will be posted soon.  Not of the quilt yet but the inspiration.

Summer Inspiration

I've had this fabric for years but never seen a pattern that would allow the print to take center stage.  In Quiltmaker May/June'13, page 11, an adverstisement for Northcott Fabric Circle caught my attention.   "Picture Perfect" by Laura Blanchard has designed a quilt which is the inspiration that I know will be perfect.  

The most special quilt to set sail is Baby O's "Welcome to the Family".  All the squares were designed by family members, sent in and ready for designing.  

Baby O

He sailed in full of joy; healthy & without complications.
Inspiration for this quilt design is a Nautical Theme requested from his momma, which is no surprise since both sides of Baby O's family love the beach.

WEDDING QUILT - Jessica & Anthony

Weddings are such a wonderful celebration!
Thank you to everyone who created amazing designs for my nephew & his beautiful bride.

(Design Inspiration created from Splashes of Color
by Margaret Okuley which appeared in Quiltmaker Magazine May/June Issue).  

QUILT - Baby G

This is a fun and simple quilt which the squares of fabric are designed by various family members from both sides of the baby's parents.  The quilter receives all the squares; sews them into a pattern that is personalized than quilts a beautiful memory for baby to treasure.
(Inspiration for making this quilt is the cute baby seen here.  Also, it has been a family tradition that wedding quilts are given to Bride & Groom than displayed at  their wedding reception. 
 Thank you to Vickie for being an amazing woman, whom we will never forget ) 

QUILT - SuperHero

Every Young Boy Wants To Be A SUPERHERO...
...or at least have a quilt with their favorite ones. 
After my son saw 'everyone' receiving their quilts, he insisted it was time I worked on his.  We selected the various Batman & Spiderman themed fabric years ago.  Since I was on his timeline and he wasn't getting any younger, I decided to use bold colors that were not juvenille looking upon first glance.  The photo is the center part of main quilt which is before more border was added.
(The pattern was inspired by the wonderful magazine "Quiltmaker")
