Baby Quilt

I started piecing together these large scale fussy cut hexagons years ago using this tutorial.  It's a nifty trick and fun to do.  I had dreams of making this into a queen size quilt but decided a teeny baby blanket was more realistic.

This project sat unfinished for a few years until I found out my daughter's teacher was having a baby girl in July. It's the perfect size for covering baby in a stroller or car seat. 

I quilted with simple stripes using the quilting guide attachment that came with my machine.  My stripes are a bit wobbly, but it's okay - adds to the handmade charm!  Backed with Liberty of London, Tana Lawn in Pepper. So soft!!

I hope mom and baby like it!!

First Grade "Modern Art Quilt"

Today I finished a work of love that will be auctioned off at this year's school fundraiser.  Each first grader created a "modern art" square in their art class with the same instructions.  Each square came out so unique and beautiful!  

Backed with Liberty "Pepper" fabric and bound with a small scale stripe . . . I'm in love.  I may just have to bid on it.

Chunky Mitten Pattern

I made these mittens in Galler Yarn's Asana Bulky for my son's kindergarten teacher. They came out so quickly and easily I decided to write up the pattern. I was lucky to get my cousin to come over and snap some photos for me.  I think they turned out so beautifully festive! Check out his Etsy shop where he sells furniture and artwork. 

Now I'm a bit addicted to this pattern as I will make them for anyone whom I can touch with a ten foot pole. I've made 3 pairs today.  I may need an intervention soon.  But in all honesty, it's just one of those patterns that is deeply satisfying to me.  Super quick, super easy, no fuss, no muss, perfect result every time.

This pattern is 50% off in my ravelry shop through 12/21/2015 with coupon code: CHUNKSTER. Who's still on your list?

Enjoy! <3 <3 <3
