Landscapes "Skyline" infinity scarf

A friend from Canada recently had twin boys (the quilts I made for them are here) but I wanted to make a special gift for the new mum also.
I have made a few of these infinity scarves lately and decided to make one for Jo as she will be able to wear it during the cold winters in Canada.
The pattern is a corner-to-corner crochet (C2C) which looks lovely with these variegated yarns.
This was on my Q3 FAL list for this year so linking up with the 2018 FAL team.

Flannel baby quilt

A friend from work is expecting her first grandbaby soon, so I wanted to make a gift for the new baby.
When they found out she was having a daughter, I chose some flannel fabrics in soft pastel shaded for the quilt.
The fabrics were cut into 20 cm (8") squares then arranged into rows to make the quilt.
Then just did some diagonal quilting through each of the squares to keep it nice and soft.
The backing is also a flannel in a cute pink bunny print which matched the binding perfectly.
Hoping little Maisy will enjoy her soft and cuddly new quilt.

BQF 2018 - Tula ColorDive quilt

Welcome to the Fall edition of the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy from AmysCreativeSide and thank you for stopping by.
Earlier this year I participated in a Tula Pink Charm Square swap and used them to make a Color Dive quilt using the pattern by Anna Maria Horner.
I needed quite a few charm squares so used all of those from the swap and cut the rest from my stash as well as slightly larger squares to make the HST. 
There are quite a few HST's needed for the pattern - it was my first time using a Bloc-loc ruler to trim the HST and it made it so much quicker!
There are prints from many of Tula Pinks fabric ranges as well as some of the new All Stars, Tent Stripes, Pom Pom dots, and solids. 
This quilt finished at 63 x 72" and it was quilt long arm quilted at my LQS, Rainbow Patchwork.
The blue backing is the same as I used for the "Love Cats" quilt that I made a few months ago and the quilt is bound in an aqua solid.
A huge thank you to Amy for hosting such a fun quilt festival - it is always so inspiring to see all of the quilts liked up! 
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy visiting many of the other blogs during this week!

Heartland "Redwood" infinty scarf

This "Redwood" Heartland yarn is such a beautiful shade of red and I really wanted to use it for an infinity scarf.
I found a pattern on Ravelry for a "V" stitch crochet scarf which was just perfect for this.
Because it is quite an open stitch, I was able to use the one skein to make the scarf long enough to wrap around twice.
