Two For Tuesday: Stuff I Made

Kate Hart
What is it? Post two of anything: book reviews, pictures, quotes, poems, songs, videos, rants, shout outs, whatever floats your boat. Just connect them somehow. That's it.

Today: Remember that query quilt I was working on?

Yeah, neither do I.*

Okay, no really: The small rainbow quilt became a gift for my oldest, who requested the back be green. So I whipped this up for him. The "A" is kind of wonky. Piecing is fun but it's not my strong suit.

But you know what's way faster than quilts, or even bags? OWLS. Turns out stuffed animals aren't that hard. I made this in a few hours for a friend's new baby.

(If you're still waiting for a contest bag I'm sorry mea culpa I suck I wrote a book instead of finishing them but I will soon!)

*ETA: Oh wow. I thought I had posted this! This is the front of the rainbow quilt:


  1. Both of those are spectacular! My best friend adores owls, and would pay big money for a lovely one like that :D

  2. that is SO GORGEOUS, kate. my God you are talented.


  3. *w* They're SO PRETTY. <3 I wish I had your talent with a needle.

  4. Kate! Lookie and the little owlie! SOOOO cute! Want! Do you have an etsy?

  5. I LOVE THAT OWL. Oh, these are all so pretty!

  6. these are seriously great! i wish i knew how to quilt... or at least had the patience to try to learn...instead i crochet...blankets, scarves, sweaters...what have you :)

  7. WOW, those are so amazing. the patience...the talent!!! wow...

  8. Those are gorgeous! But you know what's better than a quilt or a stuffed animal? A bag. :p

  9. Thanks everybody!

    C.A.-- No Etsy store, sadly. I don't think I could do that and work and write, and sewing gets low end of the totem pole there.

    Karla-- I've never learned to crochet, if it makes you feel better!

    Cory-- Pretty sure I covered that. :P
