A Little Show and Tell During This Busy Month

Wow, I just looked at the date of my last blog post ~ time is flying by this month!  I have been busy designing, and I've done some more repair work, but other than that I've been mostly busy with shopping...decorating...wrapping...shopping...baking...(did I mention shopping)... I've even had some doctors appointments and a little oral surgery thrown in the mix :(  But I wanted to take the time and stop in for a little show and tell.  This is my Jungle Buddies Quilt made with the cute Jungle Buddies fabric collection from Wilmington Prints.  On top of being made of the cutest kid fabric I've seen in a while, the design makes up really quick and easy using a panel as the main focus with some borders and simple piecing, so it's perfect for a quick kiddie quilt :)

The pattern for the quilt can be found in the current issue of Quilt Magazine on news stands now, and I have kits available for it Here!  I also have the fabrics available as yardage on bolts Here (While supplies last.) 

I pieced the sample quilt, and my good friend Sheri Thompson of Pieceful Completion machine quilted it for me with a really cute all over swirl pattern that I thought was the perfect touch :)

And I made this bonus coordinating pillow that's large sized and just right for TV watching.  You can get the pattern for the pillow as a free download Here from the Quilt Magazine website!

I love the modern look of this cute kid fabric, and I combined it with some traditional block piecing ~ I love combining the old with the new :)  I think it makes a great gift quilt for a favorite little guy (works for girls too, but I had little boys in mind when I designed it because it's harder to find cute quilts for the little guys).  Hurry to buy any kits and fabrics though if you're interested, they are selling out quick! 

Enjoy the day!

I noticed the traditional blocks with the panel before I finished reading, and loved the idea. Congrats on having it published.
