Quilt Scraps to Pin Cushions

I couldn't let these tiny scraps of vintage fabric disappear into the scrap pile so I made this adorable tiny pinwheel pin cushion.  It's perfectly useful sitting to the side of my machine.

Sugar Bear Quilt . Baby Quilt Version

Pattern from Southern Charm Quilts

Using a ton of my favorite collection of Heather Ross as the starting point, I gathered all sorts of cute animal prints in blues, greens and yellows with some peach accents to create this baby quilt.
It was fun trying my hand at fussy cutting. Will have to do some close up photos and the backing is to die for so photos of that are incoming.

 Happy Quilting

My Sugar Bear Quilt Athill Cottage Rose Version . Started in 2021

I used tons of my low volume stash and some tea dyed cotton eyelets from my vintage stash

It's going to be so fun hand-quilting this one.  Think I'm actually going to get started quilting this one soon...maybe I will wait until Fall starts because getting under this quilt is going to be a little too cozy as it's in the 90s here now.  I used wool batting with this one and cannot wait to see how that differs from my usual go to of natural cotton batting.


                            Have a wonderful Summer Solstice & Full Strawberry Moon Weekend,
