Robot Factory Quilt For Cael

Cael needs another quilt for his bed.  I saw this fabric and loved it!  I love how boyish it is.  Even my hubby loves it!  I found this pattern and knew it was the right one.  I really love how it features 3 of the fabrics, yet the rest are cut to big enough blocks to be nice and viewable.  I made a flannel backing for it and now I'm just deciding how I want to quilt it up.

Fabrics are Robot Factory by Robert Kaufman.  I was able to get all the prints!

Kona Color Card In The House!

I finally broke down and bought the Kona Color Card.  And, immediately after the postman delivered it, I started matching up solids to the Flea Market Fancy Legacy fabrics for my king size quilt I'm planning.  I must have spent 3 days trying to find color matches online with very little success.  I did find these.  But, they were with the original prints and not all the colors were matched up.  Plus, Kona has more colors now!  I took photos and edited them and got them on my Flickr.  It's been raining and my pictures were quite bad. My hubby came home and laughed at me.  He pulled out the scanner and said "Why didn't you just use this?"  He helped me scan all the color matches. Such a great hubby.... he must love me or something.  The colors are showing really true in most of the images.  Gotta love that!  If you want to see all the color matches they are here.  I'll be adding more collections when I'm working on stuff.

Here are a few of my favorites.  I ordered these and more and I can't wait to get them!
 I really love sage here.
I love both the chartreuse and the lime.  I ordered both!

Papaya... oh how I love thee...

Finished Lizzy House Quilt!

I got around to quilting my Lizzy House quilt last week.  Boy, did I have a time of it!  I decided to try some big swirly circles....yeah... my machine has a medium size arm and it was still tough.  By the time I was on my last row of swirly circles I was just getting it down.  My circles were about half the size as they were when I started, but at least the looked ok.  After a washing it puffed up beautifully and hopefully no-one will notice my less than par quilting job.  Overall I love love love this quilt.  It's so colorful and happy.

Swoon... A Pillow For My Mom

I haven't blogged in forever!  I've got so much to catch up on.  I thought I would start first with this pillow that I made for my mom for her birthday back in April.  Isn't it gorgeous!  I finally broke down and purchased the Swoon pattern.  This is a smaller version of the quilt block from this tutorial.  It made a great 18" pillow cover.  I used some lovely reds and whites.   My mom's colors.  I quilted it by going around those star points.  You can kind of see it in on of the photos.  She was very pleased with it and so am I.  I can't wait to make a whole quilt with Swoon!
