Monkeys at the Zoo
August 30, 2012

This was my first pieced quilt I attempted.  It is for our new grandchild (sex unknow).  The baby’s room is decorated in a zoo theme.  It measures 1200 x 1200 and has machine quilted hearts on the cream base.  Wooden buttons have been placed at the centre of each pinwheel.  I am very proud of this quilt as a first attempt.

This quilt was one of my favourite to do.  A Jemima Puddle Duck pinwheel quilt for our new granddaughter.  It is 1200 x 1200 and has been machine quilted with a heart vine pattern in a spiral.

Found this pattern at http://mycottoncreations.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/little-lds-scripture-tote-tutorial.html.  The pattern was very easy the follow and it turned out great.  I was able to practice my machine quilting but I made the handles a little bit too short.  I gave this to one of my daughter-in-laws who admired it for their hospital bag.

This is a 1500 x 1200 machine quilted patch and embellished quilt.  Each square has a machine quilted pattern of either a heart, barn, star or flower.  Each flower embellishment is blanket stitched with a small wooden button as its centre.  The flowers are in the same material as its backing.
