Sketching Quilting Stitches

I need to get quilting!
Right now this is how I'm planning to quilt Prince Charming. 
Will use white for the negative spaces and I might match the colors for the coral and lime.

I did the sketch in Inkscape with my Wacom Intuos. It's a great way to figure the quilting out! Of course you won't get the actual scale but the design can be easily worked out.

London Calling

Judy brought these back for me from Spring Market earlier this year.
They're gorgeous aren't they?

This is London Calling from Robert Kaufman

Think I'll make a Plus Quilt with these. :)

Mug Rug

This was an improv block I turned into a mug rug. I like the quilting on this. I think I'm going to use those wavy lines when I quilt my Improv Quilt.

Animal Maze for Jadyn

Finished Animal Maze for my nephew Jadyn.
He is using it and seems to enjoy it. My brother says he is working through the maze so that makes me happy. :)

Basting Animal Maze

Perks to working at a quilt store! I can baste on tables! 
This is Animal Maze for my little nephew. 
I love mazes and think it's nice to combine a maze into an I Spy kind of quilt. 
I designed this. First on graph paper - then on the an excel sheet so I could keep track of what I was cutting and what colors I was using. I did have a hard time figuring out the color of the maze. I wanted it to stand out and there are so many colors in this quilt! Decided on Kona Chinese Red. 
All kinds of fun is to be had with this one! :)
