Batman's Quilt for Jameson Saunders

My grandson, Jameson Saunders, calls himself Batman all the time. He is obsessed with Batman. With this in mind Scott helped me find some fabrics in Great Falls and then Victoria helped me find some more to match in Lethbridge. We created this one this September (2014).

This still needs to be quilted but my friends helped me pick out a beautiful blue minkie for the back. Then Thalia played with it . . . so much fun.

Victoria is so excited to see Jameson's face when it is finished that we decided we should take a video. I will update this later.

Jameson loved it. He was so excited that he rolled on it and was very happy.

Modern Baby Quilt

Texas in November of 2013 was filled with projects. Plus when there is such a good sale on at Jean's you have plenty to be creative with. Deb found a pattern called Modern Baby. Of course I had to adapt it . . . crazy brain and choice of fabrics makes these things interesting.

Here is the pattern called Modern Baby

And here is my adaptation because I had a border print to work with.

Waiting to be quilted this month!

It finished off at 42" x 49 1/2"

Update: It was finally quilted and bound by July 18, 2014.

2014 1016 - The Christmas Quilt - featuring Laurel Burch fabrics Quilt for Mike

A few years ago Deb was making a tree skirt with cute fabric designed by Laurel Burch. The designer died and I couldn't find her fabrics. However, Jean is closing down her store and having a sale. She didn't have the cute border print that Deb used for the tree skirt but she had some other ones from that line.

Our quilt challenge for this trip from Deb was to do a quilt each with a pattern called French Vanilla. You can see where it got it's name. I am sure everyone's quilt will look different.

I can't do anything normal but this time I did with only varying the colors and feel greatly with this layout. So here is what I have started doing with them.

Finally I finished deciding and sewing being very careful not to include too many of Laurel's signature cats. There are a couple but since we are an "Allergic to Cats" family I had to take artistic liberties.

Just awaiting the actual quilting process a year later . . . no speed here.


I finally finished in in 2016.
