A few finishes

Really happy to finish this one.  Here is the strange story of how this one came about.  I bought a quilt kit on Craftsy a while ago for the pixelated eye. Not to make the eye quilt but because it was on sale and there was lots of Kona fabric in the kit. I got the kit and sat on it while I designed this simple "eye" quilt on graft paper using up some scraps and using the big piece of Kona Snow that came in the kit. I cut this all out and sewed it together and I had a ton of fabric left in the kit. I decided to go ahead and make the pixel quilt anyway. 



The back of my designed "eye" is the pixel eye!! And then guess what? I still have a bunch of Kona Snow left from the kit so I have already cut it up and sewed into another whole quilt. That one I hope to finish soon. But wait, there is more...I still have Kona Snow left.  It is almost a yard and I am sure I will find something to do with it.  Let me just say this was a really good bargain.  The "Eyes Have it" quilt above measures about 80 x 80!



Not a great shot but I was walking through the park and these two trees were painted purple and fuchsia...I saw it as a sign and took a quick pic.

Also a couple of Quilts for Kids charity quilts I finished up. I gave a demo at their sew day on how to back to front bind and how to attache and sew on binding with a hemmer foot. 


Scrap quilt using up bits of scraps and bits of batting. Made a great bright kids quilt. 


Modern design by MaryAnn Morris from our local quilt guild. This was a contest I held at guild to design a modern quilt for Quilts for Kids. I think this is a fun and simple winner!

  5. Yes, that eye is so great - aren't you glad you made it? I can't believe you had so much left over from the kit - that is lucky! You got a lot done recently!
