Sophie's Swirl Quilt

Sophie's Swirl Quilt is made with fabric from my favorite designers, Bonnie and Camille and uses their line called "Hello Darling".  The quilt features a very simple design with half-square triangles and white background. I quilted it with Cinnamon bun swirl quilting, and a plain white backing.  I love the fresh crispness of this mostly white quilt contrasting with it's sunny colours and strawberry prints.
For this queen sized quilt, I used a fat eighths bundle and still had some decent sized scraps left for another future quilt.

Charity quilts

Just to have a record of these quilts made by the Relief Society that I had helped with. We made 7 twin size quilts to give to the teenagers and children of three Syrian refugee families that have come to our area.
Aren't they cute? All from donated fabric and batting and of course time!

On the Road

This is a sweet little boy quilt that I called "On the Road" because the fabric is Road Trip by Riley Blake, and also because of the applique cars and trucks and camper that are on it.  But also because I did all the hand embroidery while our family was in the car for 28 hours on a road trip to take my son to University last summer!  Super fun stuff. I really love doing hand work in the car and I am always thankful that it doesn't give me motion sickness!

FABRIC: Road Trip by Riley Blake
