The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
Rory’s Baby Quilt
On 3-3-2022, my sweet granddaughter was born at 1:10pm CST. We are so blessed to have her in our lives! I made this quilt out of a celestial fabric collection, chosen by my daughter-in-law. This Disappearing Nine Patch is a crib size. It was quilted with stars and swirls. Backing is done in a aqua fabric.
I started a quilt in November 2021 and did not like the secondary block that went with the starts. I deconstructed the blocks I had made and chose instead an Irish chain block to alternate with the stars. It finished at 60x60--so a nice throw. I'm either pretty late for Christmas 2021 or pretty early for Christmas 2022. Either way, I'm happy to have it off my sewing table.

Quilt of Valor
This is a Fons & Porter QOV pattern in the September/October 2019 issue of Love of Quilting. It's called Americana Pinwheels. Was a challenging pattern for me. Quilt finished at 64 x 76. Presented to an Air Force Veteran on Friday. Background fabric is Marcus Fabrics "Concrete" by Timeworn Toolbox Designs. The rest were scraps and pieces from my stash. I used a wide backing, My favorite longarmer quilted Loops & Stars
A use for the stash
I was determined to put together a quilt using only materials on hand. This is the result. No trips to a fabric store! I had a package of 5” squares. The top is based on the Ohio Starlight Mini Quilt, but expanded to lap size. I also had a lot of scraps from other projects. I was surprised, and pleased, by the strong diagonal lines. The back was pieced from a few fat quarters. Even the batting was pieced. The back reminds me of a Mondrian painting, though a bit distorted.
Box in a Box in a Box Quilt
I had this fabric line that I absolutely love. Kinda modern-ish, and the colors seemed retro... and I had no idea on what I wanted to do with it... until I looked up "square quilt patterns free layer cake". And TAAADAAA! This quilt block was MADE for this fabric line! Fabric Line: Quotation by Zen Chic for Moda Quilt Block: Framed Quilt by Ann Ferguson Quilts AND I added a black 1 1/2 inch border to make the colors really POP!
Jellybeans for Declan
This is a quilt I made for one of our great grandsons 1st birthday. Declan loves to eat and when I showed mom what I had in mind she said yes! I embroidered the high lights on my embroidery machine before I stitched the jellybeans on. When I quilted I stitched around the jellybeans on the yellow and just meandered or stippled in between.
