Made Monday {a little quilt}


It doesn't take much to get me excited.
I finished a quilt!  My third this year.  Depressing, maybe, but I think 2014 is looking up in terms of my quilting endeavors!  Babies are not so high maintenance anymore and I'm going to be part of two (TWO!) different block clubs... more on that later though! I'm so excited!  Choosing fabrics etc etc yadda yadda yadda...



Thanks to my mini helper - and NO thanks to the dark dreary day - I was able to snap a few pictures both with my phone and SLR.  Odd - the iphone pics turned out better. 

This quilt is about 30"x36" and all gender neutral fabrics from my stash!  Hmm I didn't spend a dime (specifically) for this quilt so I'm pretty happy! Binding is Architextures by Carolyn Freelander, which I now LOVE as binding.


And a little loopy quilting, which I really enjoyed doing.  I miss the actual quilting process.  I always feel so accomplished when I finish quilting something.  Ya know?


I'd loopy quilt all day if I could, its fun!


I also love adding a bit of "educational" fabric to a baby quilt - like this Ikea print that started out as a duvet cover.  LOVE this fabric although I only have long strips of it left - perfect to complete a quilt back.  


Such a good little quilt holder!  Train 'em early, I say.

I'll be posting more about the Block of the Month (BOM) club I'll be a part of in 2014, and possibly have colors chosen!  Possible, but not likely.  I change my mind so often... its not even funny.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there,
Quilts don't always need to be complicated (plus it's better to have a simple quilt finished than a complicated one in you head!!!) Don't be too hard on yourself for the number of finished, you look like you have your hands full. I love your quilt, it's fun and bright, and I love the loopy quilting too!

nice finish ! Your color combos are great and there is so much interest in the quilt created from the patterns in the fabric. Such a co-operative quilt holder too !

Oh yeah, finishing quilting something definitely makes me feel very accomplished as well!!

Hi Cristin! I have wandered over here from Instagram. I am amazed you have accomplished 3 quilts with your twins. I have only one baby and have just one quilt finished this year. :)
I can't wait to hear about your BOMs. I am hoping to get more quilting in next year too.

Cristin, can you share where you get your labels from?
