#ModernSolidsChallenge: The Quilt!

Latifah Finished Projects, Quilts 25 Comments

(Hadley giveaway post is here!) Three hotel rooms, two states, and five airports later, I finally finished my Modern Solids Challenge Quilt! After much back and forth I decided to go with one of the designs that I designed using a variation of the Birds in the Air block. Instead of the standard block made with HST’s (Half Square Triangles) …

Spicy Sticks – A Quilt for Mom

Latifah Finished Projects, Modern Quilt, Quilts, Solid Quilts, Stripe Quilts 7 Comments

Do you sometimes make a quilt that is not 100% your style or colors? I do for those I love. My sister decorated my Mom’s living space around colors inspired from a mirror that Mom fell in love with from Pier One. I wanted to make a quick quilt that would coordinate with this already colorful living room. Here’s the …

The Big ‘O’ Quilt

Latifah Bias Tape Applique, Finished Projects, Quilts, Solid Quilts 13 Comments

It’s already been established that I’m a bad gift giver. This one is um. . . two years late. I just couldn’t get good photos of it. Yep. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I feel bad though because it was made for a dear, dear freind of mine Lori for her 50th birthday. Today she turns 52 …

Seeing Red Quilt & Matching Doll Quilts

Three facts: I started this quilt long, long ago on the first ever LA Modern Quilt Guild retreat. I promised it to a friend shortly thereafter. I’m very bad at finishing and gifting quilts. Very bad. This quilt was my first time working on the technique for Half Rectangle Triangles (HRT’s) that I wrote up for the Modern Quilt Guild …

I have two cousins who are sisters who had baby boys within months of each other. I love to make quilts but, sometimes don’t have the time to make them for gifts but, people expect handmade gifts when you sew. So, I decided to make quickie blankets and toys for both of them. I had to make the gifts different …

Convergence Quilt and Bias Tape Applique

Latifah Bias Tape Applique, Finished Projects, Modern Quilt, Quilts 31 Comments

I LOVE bias tape. Always have. I know it’s weird but, I do. I love everything about it. I love making it, looking at it, using it. So, after making yards and yards of bias tape for bindings I thought “what else can I use bias tape for?” Then I thought why can’t I use it to ‘draw’ designs as …
