I have been a sewer for as long as I can remember. I love to sew baby items and keepsakes. One thing I am good at is tie quilts, there are so many beautiful fabrics out there. I have recently been making diaper cakes. I also like to cross stitch and have been making heirloom booties.

I love babies (have 3 grandchildren, 2 more on the way) and it is fun to give one of a kind gifts.

Photos

Besides the diaper cake, the other photos are of two quilts I made recently for my daughters baby showers (I have three daughters all pregnant at the same time!). The item hanging on the lamp is a breastfeeding cover up. There is boning in the neck so it stands out from the babies face and mom can see what is going on without lifting the cover. These make great gifts.

Thanks for checking our my items

Hi Joyce

by: Vicki


I make tie quilts – they are really easy. I work full time so I don’t have time to cut a regular quilt top and do the quilting (I would want to do by hand) and get it done in time for a gift. I use about 1 to 1 1/4 yds of fabric for each side, light quilt batting for the middle and then either purchased quilt binding or make my own out of one of the fabrics. I make the “sandwich”, right sides out and baste all over so it doesn’t move while I am working with it. Then I use yarn with a large needle and about every 4″ place the yarn ties (up and down, tie in two knots, cut and move one. When that is done, I bind and put on a label telling the owner who made it and why. It’s a nice heirloom gift, esp for a family member. If you need some more help or specifics, email me at [email protected] Good luck. Thanks for commenting.

Lovely quilts

by: Joyce


Hello Vicki,

I love your quilts especially the elephant one.

Wish you lived closer so you could make one for me. I live in England.

I bought a book on quilting a while ago and never got started. I am going to be a Grandmother in March so I think I’ll have a go. I have seen lots of nice materials too.

Thanks for giving me the nudge.
