Blogger’s Quilt Festival- Kaleidoscope

For my second entry in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I decided to enter my Kaleidoscope mini/doll quilt.

This is another one that I LOVE, but gave away! I made this for the flickr Doll Quilt Swap.

This was a little one that I sketched and then fell in love with! My intention was not that it would match the drawing exactly, but once I saw the sketch and the undulating patterns, I knew I had sketched it just how I wanted it to be!

The colors were picked by my partner in the swap. But, yes, I love them too! The back used the same colors. And since I quilted in the ditch for this one, on the back it ended up looking like a spider web. Kinda hard to see in this picture though.

The mini wall hanging ended up being about 18 inches square And was done all by little ‘ole me!

Did you enter the Blogger’s Quilt Festival this year???

Another Christmas Quilt

Now this one wasn’t actually made by me, but by Santa and his elves. (OK, I might be considered an elf in this situation, but please, shhhhhhhhhh…..)

If you saw our Letter to Santa, there was a fill in the blank that asks Santa to bring a little something special to a friend. When we got to that line, The kiddo asked Santa to bring a blanket for Bow Wow! So not only did Bow Wow get a blanket, but so did The kiddo!

One day at the fabric store we, I mean The kiddo, found the center fabric in the remnant pile and he HAD to have it. So we got it. And he used the remnant as a blanket for I don’t know how long. It covered him, mostly. Until he rolled over…. So I’ve been meaning to make him a blanket for a while now.

And if you remember the puppy dog face fabric, The kiddo picked out for a nice pair of comfy pants!

The rest of the fabrics ‘Santa’ picked out to go with the ones we had.

And now, for Bow Wow’s blanket!

A while back I saw this tutorial for a Disappearing 9 Patch quilt at The Cottage Home and have wanted to try it ever since. And here’s where I tried it! On both the little quilt and the border for The kiddo’s quilt.

I typically don’t do patterns, but this one struck my eye for some reason. I actually really liked it. Basically, you sew together a nine patch, then cut it in quarters and lay out it in a different order.

And not only is The kiddo super excited that ‘Santa’ made him TWO quilts, so is Bow Wow.
