Cluck Cluck Sew. Such cute quilts and lots of tutorials. I found this quilt there. It is called a strip and flip quilt. Very easy to make as I had the strips already cut. I loved flipping the strip around and seeing where it matched up. The entire back is white and I used the backing to make the binding. This was a new technique for me and it came out beautifully. Binding is the hardest part for me. This quilt will be going to my little muse who inspires me to make sweet little girl things. Check out Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Bed Runners Using Precut Fabrics. My fabrics were not precut so I had to make some adjustments.

I always start my Halloween prep in August. I figure out what I want to make and if I need to buy anything. I get a lot of inspiration from a catalog called Terry's Village. They have really cute stuff. I also get a lot of ideas from Pinterest. I did not have patterns for either of these two items. I just looked a the photos and was inspired by the general ideas. These items are for my personal use only.

http://quiltingtutorials.com/. The first was used to make the pieced portions of the quilt. It is a method using jelly rolls and sewing them into tubes. Then you cut triangles and then piece into squares. Takes a long time but you end up with a beautiful quilt top. Then I used the non binding receiving blanket tutorial to make the actual blanket. This is a very easy way to make a quick baby blanket.
