Little Logo Quilt – A DrEAMi Project

Finally, I finished an unplanned quilt defined by Sandra at mmm! quilts as a DrEAMi moment. You can see her description here of what it means – but it pretty much is summed up as: Drop Everything And Make it! It is celebrated on the last Saturday of the month, so here I am!

I spotted the red/pink/purple/lilac in my stash. They were from a batch of solids I purchased with a gift certificate from Needle&Foot. What a sweet store, I highly recommend it (not affiliated)! I had a friend from the quilt store bring the teals to me and the project was a go!

 

I made buttonholes on a double layer of the white fabric. I thought this might be a fun way to do stitches. All in all it worked just fine, I forgot about the way it would meet so I needed to add a few. Now I know if I ever do it again to think about that.

 

I made bias tape with my Clover bias tape maker.

The pieces were cut on my Sizzix Big Shot* and they were so precise! The seams matched perfectly.

It was pillowcased and simply quilted.

I had fun and it is done! Hooray!!!! One more tiny finish for 2018; it brings my total to 27! That is a very good year for me….

      It finished at 12” square. I love the way it turned out, maybe a larger one someday.

    Buttonholing is a wonderful way to achieve that look! And I completely agree about the excellence of Needle and Foot; I always love to see the good word getting spread.

      I loved the effect of the bias tape/buttonholes. I always hope it helps any business when we talk about them – especially the really terrific ones like Needle and Foot.

    Clever use of buttonholes, and a cute logo quilt. You mentioned you were making a DrEAMi quilt, so it’s fun to see it!

    Love it!!!! It’s your logo, personified! Well, in the flesh. Hmmm, in the cotton? What a great idea!

      You are funny! Personified in cotton is a lovely expression if you ask me.

    Hi Kathleen! Well, well, well . . . I had NO idea where you were going with those buttonholes. Isn’t that just so cute and clever?!! This is just so darn perfect as your logo!! I love and adore it. You can put this on your business card and all over the place. Fabulous! I’m working on a DrEAMi myself today, but I forgot about the link up. I may have to whip up a post! HAHA! Happy New Year! ~smile~ Roseanne

      I do love the logo and it was so much fun making the block. I hope you get to your DrEAMi project (in fact maybe I saw something come through my mail that I haven’t read yet).

    That’s such a clever idea! Congrats on finishing your logo as a mini quilt 🙂

      It was totally a DrEAMi when I stumbled upon those fat quarters hiding in my stash. I do love it and it is fun looking at it in my study!

    I love it! The weaving through the button holes is awesome.

      It was a fun little distraction project and fun to do buttonholes again – its been awhile.

    How cool Kathleen! Your logo quilt is perfect, I love how you used real button holes to thread it.
    Happy New Year to you friend!

      I was surprised when I found that I already had some matching colors in a part of my stash that I hadn’t looked at in awhile. Happy New Year to you too!

    Such a neat idea to recreate your blog logo in fabric! It turned out great! Will you hang it in your studio?

      Thanks, Diann. It is hanging in my studio, and it makes me smile whenever I see it.

      Thank you! For a squirrel it was little but perfect. The tape was fun to do – need to be a little more accurate on the positioning – but that will come next time (and I am sure there will be a next time.

    I just love this! I am still working on coming up with a logo; have been on Logojoy which is a great site, just need to grab some time and sit down and DECIDE! ha! This is a great idea to do FOR a logo too, lovely finish and thanks for linking up with DrEAMi!

      So hope you find and settle something. I did have a graphic designer do mine which is nice as you get everything you need…including the color #s. I think you can find them on logojoy – it helps as you can coordinate your other printed/electronic things with it. You probably already know this. If not and need help, let me know.

    I missed this post when it came up a few weeks ago. I LOVE this interpretation of your logo. What a fantastic idea. The buttonholes are so cool – an idea to tuck in the back of my mind for ‘someday’…. A while ago, Vistaprint sent me a tshirt with my logo on it. The tshirt is huge tho and not one I will ever wear. I had thought about cutting the logo out of it and making some sort of mini with it. This is giving me a push to do so! It would be fun to hang downstairs in my shop.
    Thanks so much for sharing my shop with your readers. I always appreciate that!

I love hearing from you and try to reply promptly to each comment.
