Monday Muses

Here's a cute little quilt I finally got hung up this weekend. I made this quilt start to finish  in 3 days while visiting a friend in Ohio in 2000. It is a pattern by Cheri. The basket handles, holly leaves, and berries are done all raw edge applique. 
This baby quilt is a lot bigger than I thought! So, I'm calling it a mom and baby snuggle quilt. I'm going to bind it in a wide blue. I'll have to piece the backing too since my ABC fabric is not large enough. 
I made this little table topper with the antique redwork. Or it could eventually be a pillow, or a wall hanging or whatever the recipient would like to do with it. Nothing like options, right?! LOL
I shared this on my facebook page. The linen and screen print were purchased at IQF.  It's a fun reminder of my daughter and I riding bikes through Paris.

  1. A funny coincidence about your last picture -- the Paris reminder. Earlier this morning I won a piece of "Paris" fabric on Ebay -- I want to make a pair of pot holders for my niece Abby. We met up with her when we were in Paris and since she's moved from dorm into apartment, I thought this would make a nice reminder! (And there might be enough for a reminder for ME, too!)

  7. That is a sweet little "Cheri" quilt for the holidays.
    Your Mom and baby snuggle quilt is a good idea. The borders look great.
    A wonderful reminder of biking in Paris. Wish I had ever done that, so I could have a reminder of it. : )

    You have made some beautiful pillows, another thing on my to do list this year.
