Chemistry Mug Rug
I made this mug rug mini quilt for a coworker. I wanted to try out my hexagon template, so I went with a chemical diagram design (using mini ric rac for the lines in the design)
I had leftover sexy cowboy fabric from a glassware bag made for a friend, and we needed a handle-style potholder for our iron skillet...and the Hottie Potholder was born! Made from cotton quilting fabric and heat-resistant batting, I quilted around the abs for extra dimension and durability.
Japanese Woodblock Quilt
I've loved Japanese woodblock prints since studying them in my art history class in high school. I found this fabric, by Alexander Henry, and it reminded me of that type of artwork, and I knew I needed to make a quilt from it. The body of the quilt was made using the Yellow Brick Road pattern, with the patches' colors pulled from the focal fabric.
Love Beads Quilt
I created this for my friends' wedding, I knew they liked the brown/blue/green color scheme, so I decided to try to get variations of blues and greens with a brown background. The square on the back is a line from the song "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, their initials, and the year they were married. I'm sorry to say I don't have a picture of this quilt completely finished, the quilting was a really fun faux bois pattern.
Nightmare Before Christmas Quilt
This is the first quilt I made for my boyfriend Josh. He loves The Nightmare before Christmas, so I created this black and white zig zag quilt with appliqued Jack Skellington heads on the cornerstones.
Pantone Color of the Year Mug Rug
I made this mug rug mini quilt for my boss, who's a graphic designer. I found the perfect solid fabric for the main color of the Pantone chip, and used freezer paper stencilling techniques to add lettering
Peace, Baby! Quilt
This strip baby quilt was created to celebrate the birth of a dear friends' son. I lucked out by finding some great peace sign fabric for this hippie baby. This quilt is quilted pebble-style, in varying sizes of overlapping circles. The corners are rounded, and the quilt is bound in a blue plaid.
Sunflower Irish Chain Quilt
Sunflowers are my home state's flower, and I wanted to try working with an Irish Chain pattern. This quilt went quickly, because the top was strip-pieced.
I made these as a housewarming gift for a friend. She has a bright, bubbly personality, and I felt like the bright blues and purples in these dyed fabrics would suit her.
Tie Dye String Quilt
This quilt was based on a photo I had saved in my "inspirations" folder for the longest time, kind of a modified string quilt. I made this for some friends to celebrate their wedding. I used mostly batiks, and for the back, I hand-dyed a large piece of fabric. I also used a fun decorative stitch along the binding with a varigated thread, so this quilt is definitely colorful!
What's My Name Again? Mini-Quilt
This mini quilt was made for my cubicle at work, as a fun little nametag to jazz up my workspace. I used the freezer paper technique to stencil a scrap from my Tie Dye String Quilt's back with my name. Then I used the Mod Mosaic Tutorial and scraps from my scrap bin and grey linen to create the pieced border.
