A Quilt for a Pampered Pet! The BabyGo! Delivers!

Another commissioned quilt for the Wicked Step Mother…Hmmm, something is so wrong about making a quilt for a dog but it’s for family-what can I say???

There are no words here...

A little background is in order… my father and my Wicked Step Mother (a shared affection in deed :-)), welcomed Zoe into their lives in 2005 and their lives have changed forever.  First of all, they are obsessed.  So much so, I think Zoe ranks over their own grandchildren…really, I think an intervention is in order!

Here is evidence.  I would like to think that this was staged as a joke, but I am afraid, it might not be…or perhaps they should explain in their own defense?

Ok, back to quilting… I used my awesome Accuquilt Go!Baby with my new Rick Rack die!  Woohoo!  Both rock-get them!  Check out the starter set!  And sign up on their website for 22 free patterns!  Join the other 50,000 friends on Accuquilt’s Facebook page!

The Layers

 

So I cut my rick rack with ease using my lovely Go!Baby.  I layered my fabric with interfacing to make it all cut perfectly with the interfacing!  I am telling you-the Go!Baby makes this sooooo easy and fast! My interfacing of choice is my favorite Pellon Wonder Under 805 (love this stuff-check it out!).  Used my Warm and Natural Batting (again, love this stuff, won’t quilt without it!) and sealed it with a minky dot cuddle fabric… wow! do you think I can change the name and keep it instead?  Ha!

 

 

And so, I machine quilted the rest using white and metallic threads to make it even more festive! Yes, festive for the Zoe, it does seem so wrong… but if it were your precious baby, you would do the same I suppose!

Zoerrific!

Postscript:  I just know I am going to hear it from my brother… he sent fabric and threatened me that I better not make Zoe’s quilt before his-ooops…  Here is my defense… he ordered a king size quilt-the quilters will understand, the brother won’t… peace out…

Quick coasters for home, birthdays or change it up for Christmas!

One night after a long day of work, handling the bustle of the day, a 4:30 am workout and more-I REALLY needed a mental break!  I pulled out Eva and we had a talk.  I told her that I just wanted to do something fun, I sipped a cold beverage and realized I didn’t have a coaster at bay… ah ha!!!  The universe delivers!

Just what the doctor ordered!  Ella and I started to cut out lovely flowers with our Accuquilt BabyGo! and away I went!  I was on a roll!  I made a set of quick and fun coasters with flair!  I experimented with different stitches and fabrics-all from the sewing cave!  Woohoo!  What a quick fix and sense of accomplishment!

Eva Bernina gets a new dress…

A new dress for Eva!

On a whim-I know-shocking!-I made Eva a “dress” fitting for the royalty that she is… White waffle weave fabric keeps her warm inside and a pretty pattern shows off her shape… You all know I LOVE rickrack so of course she got some of that!

Voila! Cute red polka dot ribbon keeps her dress on and discrete!
