The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
Little boys are made of.....
A little more paper piecing practice on this baby boy quilt. I found the paper piecing patterns on etsy and adjusted the scale a bit. Used fussy cut zig zag fabric for the sashing and binding. Green polka dot minky on the back. I quilted some of the words to the song on the green outer boarder. Not sure I can give this one away. I may have to save it for a grandchild.

HSTs cut on my AccuQuilt from scraps and a few purchased FQs. I decided on a feature block pattern by moving the HSTs around and quickly decided I wasn’t patient enough to make all the blocks so detailed. So, 4 patches were added in between to get the quilt to a desired size. Machine embroidered a name and gifted to baby Miller at a fun family event.
"Dream Big" Wall Hanging Quilt
For months now, I have admired the Dream Big quilt panel done by so many quilters on Pinterest..I just had to jump in and give it a try. I started it over the weekend 3/30/19, and finished it today 4/3/19. I have seen some of these quilts with a butterfly, bumble bee, or a dragon fly appliqué in the center, so I am on the look out for one of those. I may go with the bumble bee, since my Mom's name was Bea. My daughter fell in love with the colors of this one (called Opal) so I made it for her to hang above her bed. Dear hubby will have to make another quilt rack with a shelf!
Sharing a layer cake
My friend and I split a package of Kaffe Fassett 10” squares to each make a Tranquil Triangles quilt. We chose different borders and backing, so our quilts are more sisters rather than twins! It was a great project to do together and it all went quickly with two of us sharing tasks.
I drew this pattern out on graph paper and had two colors in mind. This one I have made 2X's. I gave this one away to a great nephew for graduation last year. I guess this was the only gift he received and won't take it off his bed. I did an overall quilt pattern and made a label also, but I haven't found any pictures of when it was completed. I must of forgotten to take some before it left my house.

A good friend of mine asked if I would make a T-shirt memory quilt from her late husband's shirts. I was thrilled to do this for her. My first T-shirt quilt. She requested flannel for the back. The border is Michael Millers Painters canvas - black. Very fitting as her husband was a painter.
