Holiday Lodge Christmas Throw Quilt Dark Version

Holiday Lodge Christmas throw quilt by Daydreams of Quilts

This is second Holiday Lodge throw quilt that I finished last week. You can see the first one (the light version) in this post.

This quilt uses a Holiday Lodge panel as well as some of the fabrics from the “Holiday Lodge” line by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics. I have added in fabrics from Tula Pink’s “Holiday Homies”, Basic Grey’s “Evergreen”, Kate and Birdie’s “True North” and other fabrics from my stash. There are also Kona snow and Kona black solids. The Holiday Lodge fabrics were purchased from Funky Monkey Fabrics and Thread Count Fabrics.

The Holiday Lodge quilt is available here in the Daydreams of Quilts Etsy shop.

We did actually get some snow here the day before this photo was taken which would have been nice for photos but I’m not sad that it melted quickly.

These fabrics fit in perfectly with the farmhouse decor trend. They make me wish I could spend Christmas in a cozy cabin in the mountains.

I quilted this quilt with various custom quilting motifs including stippling, wishbones, straight lines and loop-de-loops around the plaid bears, trees and stags. The border is quilted with feathers.

The black shooting star fabric as the background for the trees is a Figo Fabrics print from Studio 39 Fabrics.

The dark wood grain fabrics are what really make this quilt! The wood grain background on the bows is a Northcott fabric.
The back of the quilt is red and black buffalo plaid.
The back of the quilt is the red and black buffalo plaid check from the “Holiday Lodge” line.

The present block is from Thimble Blossoms “Handmade with Love” pattern. The ornament block is from Thimble Blossoms “Vintage Holiday” pattern.

Black and White Animals with Rainbows Child’s Quilt

Black and white animals with rainbows child's quilt.

I bought these adorable animal panels and the white border from Funky Monkey Fabrics in the summer when they had a sale on Dear Stella fabrics. I didn’t have a real plan for them other than I thought I might make pillow covers with them.

Black and White Animals with Rainbows Quilt made by Daydreams of Quilts.

Then I thought I would like to make a kid’s quilt with them but needed to add to the panels to make it bigger. I collected fabrics in rainbow colours from my scrap bins and cut the panel in half. Then I added the strips of rainbows. I then added the coordinating white border. I felt the quilt should still be a bit bigger as I was thinking it could be for a toddler bed so I ordered the black border and the binding from Thread Count Fabrics. This quilt is 45″ x 51.5″.

The black fabric has a white print of mountains on it and the binding has sticks. So cute! This quilt would be lovely for a family who loves camping or spending time in nature. It’s perfect for my own family actually. 🙂

The bear panels says "Be Brave"
The bear panel says “Be Brave”. All of the animals have virtues to go along with them.

The animal panels are adorable and they all have virtues. I quilted around them in stipple quilting with variegated rainbow thread in 80 weight from Aurifil.

The llama panel says "Be Silly"
The ever popular llama.

This was a fun quilt to make and a great one for using up scraps. This quilt is available in my Etsy shop.

Rainbow Hot Air Balloon Panel Quilt

My Rainbow Hot Air Balloon panel that I designed for the Cheater Quilt Panel challenge on Spoonflower has arrived. I have it all quilted and bound now.

This baby quilt is available in my Etsy shop and the panel is available in my Spoonflower shop if you want to make your own.

Having the grid lines printed on the panel makes it so easy to quilt this modern quilt in an equally modern grid. The only spot that’s a bit tricky is the white part of the heart. I wobbled a bit but you can’t tell right? 🙂

It’s a lovely September fall day for quilt photos. The rainbow really pops in the shade of the trees.
This is the backing and binding. I used a gradient chartreuse from Cotton and Steel for the binding that worked out very well. The backing is a Flourish print from Windham Fabrics.
A closer look at the quilting. It’s so easy to quilt this quilt with a walking foot.

Thank you for checking out my fun modern quilt today! I hope your day is going great!

Sailboat Quilt in Daysail Fabrics

This sailboat quilt was finished just over a week ago. Made with Daysail fabics by Bonnie and Camille for Moda with a white on white background. The Kona for the inner border and sashing is Kona Splash available here from Studio 39 Fabrics. The Sailboat quilt can be found here in our Etsy shop.

I had originally planned to write a free pattern for this quilt but maybe there are enough sailboat patterns? Leave a comment below and let me know if you want me to hurry up and finish the pattern for this. 🙂

I quilted clouds in the white background and waves in the sashing and inner border. The sails are quilted with back and forth lines and the border is quilted with meandering stipple quilting. The boats have waves quilted on them too. I switched out threads to match the fabrics. All threads are Aurifil 50 weight 100% cotton threads.

I used a pretty ombre rainbow wideback for the backing (I believe this one is from Windham fabrics.)

Garden Vines Quilt in Flourish Fabrics

Horizontal photo of the Garden Vines / Morning Glory quilt.

We, very happily, had a bit of a run on quilts in our shop last month so I’m needing to get moving on some works in progress and get them listed! This quilt was finished a week and a half ago but haven’t had a chance to write about it until now with all the busyness of back to school. I am calling this quilt the Garden Vines Quilt but it was made using the Morning Glory quilt pattern by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. Made entirely with the Flourish fabric line for quilt top and we still have some of these fabrics available here.

I quilted ribbon candy all down the stems and leaf shaped loops on the leaves. The yellow background is quilted with meandering stippling. It took a full day to quilt this quilt on my Juki.

Three Witches Embroidery Design for Spoonflower’s Design Challenge

The voting is now open in the Halloween embroidery design challenge on Spoonflower. I created a watercolour design of three witches at a cauldron and then went in on the computer and digitally added stitch lines and a quote. I bet you can guess it. It’s a famous line from Shakespeare.

This was a fun project. As soon as I receive my first print of this design in the mail and I’m sure it prints out well I will add this design to my Spoonflower shop. The best thing is you get four on a fat quarter so you could go in with friends or have extras for gifts.

Voting is open for a week on Spoonflower. Head over and check it out! There are a lot of fabric designs, which are cool, but they don’t fit the challenge (frowning face). However, I voted for 10 designs that are actually embroidery and I would be interested in stitching several of them. So fun!

Scalloped Heart Hot Air Balloon Cheater Quilt

Most of you probably know about Spoonflower. It’s an amazing place where you can print your own fabric designs, print your own quilt labels, but other designer’s awesome designs and more! Plus, you can choose the fabric you want everything printed on too!

Spoonflower hosts design challenges all the time and I often go and vote on the designs. You can vote for as many designs as you like and the top designs win prizes in the form of Spoonflower credits.

For the first time I have had the courage to enter a design! I have entered in the one-yard cheater quilt panel challenge. I designed this quilt to be pieced but I honestly haven’t had time to piece it! I may still do so one day but in the meantime a cheater panel for baby quilts sounds awesome! (A cheater quilt means it looks like a quilt but it’s all one solid piece of fabric.)

Scalloped Heart Hot Air Balloon cheater quilt panel by Daydreams of Quilts.

This prints out on a 36 x 42 inch yard of fabric so you just layer, baste and quilt. It has grid lines for quilting guides. I have ordered a panel to make sure it prints out alright and as soon as I’m sure of that (just waiting for it to arrive) I will make it public so you can order it.

Update: here it is all printed and quilted. You can find this panel in my Spoonflower shop.

Canadian Flag Heart Quilt

Canadian Flag Heart Quilt

I finished a quilt yesterday! This one was for a custom order from my Etsy shop. The customer who ordered it said it is for a gift for a new family coming to Canada from Syria. What an amazing welcome gift!

Canadian Flag in a Pixel Heart Quilt by Daydreams of Quilts

These Canadian Flag quilts are available both as a PDF Pattern and as a custom order quilt in my Etsy shop.

Yesterday was a perfect prairie day for quilt photos. I am thankful I finished yesterday because today is windy and stormy and I would not have been able to take photos.

The fabrics are almost all Moda. Mostly from Kate and Birdie’s “True North” line but there are also some French General fabrics, Moda grunge and Moda grunge dots.

There is a horse paddock at the end of our street and the horses seemed interested in what my son and I were doing with this quilt near their fence. I like to think this quilt is horse-approved. 🙂

I hope the family love their new quilt and their new country! <3
