A Quilt On Noah's Ark 🚢

January was a roller coaster ride for our family, and it started out on New Year's Day at the Ark Encounter, a life-size Noah's Ark!

This awesome quilt was a birthday gift from my small group quilt friends and combines some of my favorite things: Tula Pink fabrics, Grunge Dots and plus blocks--they know me well! Here is the quilt on Noah's Ark:

Charity Quilts 48, 49, 50, 51, 52 & 53 💝

I've been making 52 quilts in 2018 for Jack's Basket, where babies with Down syndrome are celebrated. 🎉 Here's a sweet baby sleeping on one of my quilts, surrounded by all of his Jack's Basket goodies!

This is the last month of my 52 baby quilts challenge! I ended up with 53 quilts, as that's how many coordinated bundles DD2 and I had arranged--just can't stop the fun!!!

Here are all 53 quilts:

🎄 Christmas Sewing ✄

A layer cake of Holiday Homies by Tula Pink is what inspired me to sew this quilt for Christmas. I love how it turned out!

A big part of the fun of this quilt, besides the fun animals in sweaters, is the "Sherpa" backing--so soft and snuggly! I quilted it with large freehand ribbon candy:

🎉 Party Quilt 🎉

This quilt was named by my blogger friend, Wendy, when she commented on Instagram, that quilt "looks like a party!"

The pattern, Pixelated, came out in Issue 51 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine. It's also available now in the designer's store, Down Grapevine Lane.

This is a fun quilt to make from 2 1/2" strips! I made mine from a Tula Pink "True Colors" jelly roll. I took out several of the strips that didn't play nice, added other Tula Pink strips, and I inserted 4 more rows in random places to the pattern. That took a bit of graph papering!

I did matchstick quilting on this 60" X 85" quilt. I was totally inspired by @SheCanQuilt on Instagram, and the throw size quilt she was matchsticking.

November Minikins Challenge ✅

Sara @ Sew Sweetness is doing a monthly challenge with her Minikins patterns. The Minikins are a bundle of 12 small bags/projects that come with downloadable pdf instructions, patterns and step-by-step videos. 

The Minikins challenge for November is the Trifle Tumbler pouch. There are three sizes:

I quilted my fabric first. It's not necessary when using Annie's Soft and Stable, but it's lovely to quilt Soft & Stable, and fabric always looks better quilted:

Ric Rac Quilt

Here's a recent finish for me--my Ric Rac quilt!!! This design is made using the QCR Mini ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful, and a free pattern on their website, here.

The fabrics were a bundle of Sweet Tweets Island Batik fabrics that I won on Kathleen's blog, here. You can also see the clever quilt Kathleen made from her bundle of identical fabrics. Here's what they looked like out of the package:

Dot 'N' Dash QAL

Christa Watson recently held a QAL (quilt-along) of her pattern Dot 'N' Dash, from her book Piece and Quilt With Precuts. Since I had the book and I love the quilt, I jumped right in!
I made my version from a small curated jelly roll I picked up on clearance at a LQS. It was made from a mixture of fabric lines teamed up together.
