Preemie Quilts

This week I had a couple packages come in. They included fabric and supplies I ordered prior to last week’s ‘Shop your Stash’ post.
Horizon by Kate Spain – this line is all my favorite colors all together. I absolutely love it!

Architextures Blue Trees – I’ve been admiring this one for some time now and it might just make it into my #igminiswap quilt.

The Quick Curve Ruler – another purchase that I have been contemplating that might be used for the #igminiswap quilt.

Gigi cross-stitch pattern by Nora Corbett for Mirabilia. My mom is a Halloween lover and this small pattern will be perfect for her!

I cannot wait to get started on all these fun and cool projects!

My guild, Memphis Area Modern Quilt Guild, is collecting preemie blankets and quilts for LeBonheur Children’s Hospital and I finished mine right on time.

The dark one uses a charm square pack of Here, Boy! and some Riley Blake dots. The floral is Spring Fling by Me and my Sister Designs with some Riley Blake dots. These blankets turned out 24×36. I used flannel backing and no batting. I read in a post, which I don’t remember whose, that this was a good way to go so that they don’t get too heavy. I just hope that whoever receives these will love them. I bound both with dot prints that I had on hand (#shopyourownstash). The only piece of fabric that I purchased recently for these is the bird flannel backing, which is completely adorable. I didn’t have any girl themed flannel to use. All the other fabrics I already had in my stash.

They are both just so sweet and cozy! I just love that polka dot binding on both of these.

I also got through month 9 of the Sugar Block Club and it’s really starting to come together.

This coming week, I will be working on Border 3 of the Mini Medallion Quilt Along over at Clover and Violet and I hope to get my Kitty Mini Swap mini quilted and bound.

    how I wish I’d robbed your postman! I love Horizon and will get some when it comes out here (in about 6 months!), I also want a quick curve ruler.

    I just bought some Here Boy! yardage – apparently I can’t resist doggie fabric πŸ™‚ I’m sure the recipient families will love their quilts!

  3. That’s quite the delivery you got. I love my QCR. I’m thinking of doing a 1″ cut strip stratas for my IGminiswap but still debating.

  4. What a nice haul of goodies πŸ™‚ I keep looking at the quick curve ruler as I do love a good sewing gadget, but not sure its really as easy as it appears :/ Love the quilts, and the blue trees would be a favourite πŸ™‚

    What a wonderful mail man πŸ˜‰ Your Sugar Block Club blocks are great, love the colors. . . but. . . holy wow it really makes it clear that we have just over three months of 2014. . . talk a bout an early morning reality slap!! πŸ™‚

    Some great fabrics there, love the Kate Spain set! And oh that cross stitch pattern! That’s beautiful πŸ™‚

  7. I have to agree with you! The colours in That Horizon by Kate Spain are gorgeous.
