I am having fun working on my Halloween Plus Quilt!  As I am working on it, I am clueless as to what color thread to use to quilt it....any suggestions?

But I realized that I forgot to show you my baby Ruby quilt once it was finished.
The weather here has been gray and abysmal for the past week, but the sun was shining today. YAY!! I finally got a chance to take some pictures for you and to put in the shop.
The finished size of this quilt is 36" x 36" so it is perfect for a baby quilt, but I thought it would be awesome to use as a table topper too. I was really unsure about my choice of backing/binding fabric, but I think it ended up being a good choice. It doesn't compete with all of the cute patchwork fabric.
I also changed up my normal quilting style and quilted this with a diagonal grid. I tend to make "square" quilts, so I think the diagonal quilting adds a bit of extra interest.

I have almost a full jelly roll of Ruby that I am going to use to make something for ME!! I think I am going to make this. But it is going to have to wait until after the holidays. I definitely need to start sewing some lovely Christmas gifts. I am heading to Pinterest for inspiration. I may be up all night :)


  1. Ruby is certainly a very cheerful little quilt!

  2. Hi! It is very cute indeed! Lovely colours... you sale those right? They are amazing pretty! Pinterest? Everybody in talking about that... I might have a look myself what is all this fuss about :D
    Take care, Lorena, Chao!

  3. I love the colors you use. So sweet.

  4. Such a pretty colourway for this lovely little quilt and I love the diagonal quilting too. How about orange or rust coloured quilting on your Halloween Plus Quilt?? I'm sure you will make it look great whatever you decide.
