The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
The idea for this quilt came to me two years ago when I made this same pattern in pastel colors for my new granddaughter. All I could think of while sewing hers, was how beautiful this quilt would look using Rober Kauffman Holiday Flourish fabrics. I am very proud because I quilted this myself, using metallic thread in the ribbons and doing the wavy free motion quilting in the background for the first time. The pattern called the Ribbon Box Quilt which can be found on Cloud 9 Fabrics website under their free patterns tab.

Twinkling Stars for Christmas
Mom taught me to sew at the age of 10. She is an accomplished seamstress and quilter. Over the years she has made quilts for 8 of her children, 25 grandchildren, and 30 great grandchildren, numerous friends, and charities including Habitat and babies of addicted mothers. Now however, at 90 mom can’t quilt anymore because she is unable to leave her bed. I wanted her to see that her tradition lives on, each stitch sewn was a testament to my love for her and all the wonderful blessings she has given me and so many others.
WIP Alter Ego
My Work in progress is now at the quilter. I finished the borders on Monday 11-27-17. Prepared the backing the next day. Took it to the quilter on Wednesday 11-29. I am planning to give it for a Christmas present so I will be burning the midnight oil to get the binding sewn on i'm slow.. The quilter said he should be finished by Dec 15th. I used Julia's Garden by Northcott Fabrics by Deborah Edwards. It is a 30's print for sure. That is where it is located at Fabric Depot.
When I saw the daily special from MSQC for the Scottish Charm layer cake, I knew exactly who to make a quilt for. My choir director and his wife had lost their little Scottie dog about 3 years ago, but he's still in their hearts. This was meant for them. I ordered the layer cake and some yardage in black and white to fit the suggested Four Patch Frenzy pattern. I also ordered a little extra yardage to make a border. The package arrived while I was out of town, but the following weekend I put everything together. I found a backing with the same rich black color, and took it to my longarming friend to get quilted. She used a paw print pattern in taupe, that allows it to show in both the white and black areas. I'll be gifting this soon. I know they will love it.
Snail’s Trail in Blue
I made this quilt as a birthday gift for my son’s girlfriend. She loves the color blue and is a little bit more contemporary than traditional in style. I purchased the 10” squares and yardage from the MSQC. The fabric is truly gorgeous with a subtle hint of metallic. I also used a butterfly print from the same collection for the entire backing. Very pleased how it turned out. Hope she loves it!
Secret Sister Gift Quilt
The fabrics were FQ's from a Secret Pal drawing in our sewing group. These were her fabrics. I added the hot pink fabric & gray sashing & binding. The pattern is Craftsman. I decided to do big stitch quilting in each block. I used freezer paper circles and free handed the rest. The quilt size is about 55 x 65.
