Yep challenge. I don’t love competitions and I design best when I’m designing from a place of love and pure creation and I know this about myself. But, I’m a sucker for a box of beautiful fabric and how beautiful is this? So, when Free Spirit Fabrics/Coats and Clark asked me if I wanted to participate in this challenge, I …

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

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 …

The White Stripes Quilt

This quilt is definitely in the “quilts I haven’t blogged about” category. At my last job my co-worker Jean and his wife had a baby boy. Not knowing the mom and wanting to create a quilt that was simple and classic I decided on stripes. Not finding the stripes that I wanted, I decided to make my own stripes. White …

I thought it would be fun to see some modern quilts at the LA County Fair, so I thought I’d enter one. It’s not really a show quilt BUT, it is definitely different than any other quilts at the fair. We usually go to either the LA or Orange County Fairs every year. My primary goal is usually to get …

Latifah Finished Projects, Giveaway, Quilts, Solid Quilts, Works In Progress 15 Comments

After many months of very little quilting, I’ve been cranking out quite a few quilt tops that have been floating around in my head. This is one of them. I’m so happy to be back to quilting too! This one is called Stairway to Heaven. Now, I don’t even know if I fully believe in a heaven but, if there …

Mini Quilts – Jagged Little Pill

This is a project that was finished last year – like six months ago – that I never posted! It was made for the LAMQG Mini Quilt Swap. It was a random swap so everyone that brought a mini quilt pulled a wrapped package from the table. My little quilt was pulled by Kelli and guess who’s quilt I pulled? …

Herringbone Linen – Modern Whole Cloth Quilt

Latifah Baby Quilts, Finished Projects, Quilts, Solid Quilts 24 Comments

I love looking at quilting in new and fresh ways. Oftentimes “new and fresh” refers to looking at traditional and established methods and making them your own. I’ve been thinking a lot about designing whole cloth quilts. I’m a little hesitant in calling this a “whole cloth quilt” because most whole cloth quilts are such intricate works of art. I’ve …
