Coopers Quilt!

My Grandson Cooper turned two a couple of weeks ago.  Hes so smart and funny and he keeps us all entertained for sure!  We call him "Mogley" as in the Jungle Book because he is a little brown boy!  About a month or so ago I blogged about this quilt that I made from crumb blocks and some blue and green yardage.  This quilt became Coops Birthday present from his Granny...

Lots of crumbs were used up for the center of the blocks...

I quilted it on the longarm using a free motion "Grid" design to keep a more masculine feel to the quilt.  I backed it in bright Red tye dye flannel.  The quilting showed up great, I was very pleased with the finished effect....

I was also very very glad that this little stinker loves it!!  Notice I gave him a sucker so that I could keep him still to take his picture with his quilt...he IS two and a ham!

We love our Super Cooper!

Happy Birthday buddy!!!

Stay little!!!

RSC 2015 quilt top complete!

I have finally completed a quilt top from one stack of my
 RSC blocks from 2015!!


These are my Bubble Log Cabin blocks.....this quilt came about because of Nann, another blogger over at " " who shared hers and I just loved them.  They are a good scrap buster, using 2" colored strips, 1" white strips and four 3.5" squares, all from my Scrap users system!!

 Score! Use it up! 

 So, I made one block each month in the RSC color of the month and then added the twelveth block in wine as my final color block. So when I got it all sashed and hung it out for its photo, I thought wow...boring!  Needs something! 

(Oh look theres my shadow self!!)

So, I went back inside and decided that this baby needed piano keys.  I firmly believe that piano keys "make" a quilt, so I got to work and two hours later it looks like this.....and I was right once again (doesn't happen too often!), it looks amazing now!! More strings used up!!

Happy Dance!! Its Rainbow deliciousness!!

Heres a stained glass shot of the back....Looooove it!!

So the birthday party for my two youngest Grandbabies is coming up.  They are "Irish twins", our Cooper is turning two on the 28th and his little sister Kamryn is turning 1 on May 4th.  So Kamryn gets to crash Coops party every  year!

What!  Poor little dude!
Anyhow...this quilt is destined to belong to Kamryn, it will be way too big for a while but I just thought of that little sweetie everytime I worked on it.  So its her Birthday present from her Granny.  I quilted it with an Aqua thread with freemotion loops with hearts and flowers.  

Now for Coop...hes getting this scrappy crumb square in a square quilt...this is a picture of the quilt top before I got it quilted but I did finally get it quilted with a freemotion grid design and backed it in red flannel...perfect for my little dude!

Two more finishes! Yippee!!
 Thanks for stopping by!!

A finish!

Now just so you all know, I was born and raised in Southern California, Long Beach to be exact.  I was raised an LA Dodgers fan, loved Bill Buckner back in the day, but I grew up and realized that the Anaheim Angels are my team, 
Go Halos!! 

 Anyways, I don't begrudge anyone their "team", its all fair in love and war.  So when people request a quilt out of another teams fabrics, I comply with gusto! I aim to please!  So, the following quilt finish is for my niece Jetta, its for her oldest sons best friend Ralph, its his birthday next month and anyways, Ralph is  an awesome kid and its a California baseball team....woot woot! 
I'm good!

Go Dodger Blue!!!

Can you see I stitched "Lets go Dodgers" in the border?
I also put Ralphs cool!

I quilted it with my go to "Loopy Loops" and random stars in Dodger Blue thread...the backing is Dodger Blue flannel.

and  bound it in Dodger Blue too!! So,here it is in all its
 Red, White and Dodger Blue glory! 

Its a beauty! Ralph is gonna love it!
