The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
Tic Tac Toe
I used fabric from 9 different charm packs, with metallics in most of them, to make this Laundry Basket Quilts pattern. I made my blocks bigger than the pattern, tho. It’s an anniversary gift. Wish it was for MY anniversary! The pictures can’t do this quilt justice. They are Star Wars fans and her name is Rachel.....thus the backing....
Carenter's Star For Good Friends
We did a 5,000 mile road trip this summer visiting friends and family. A long time friend and past coworker of my husband's retired to Tennessee. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time with them. They have a painting with these colors in it...so hence this quilt. This was fabric from my stash. I love the teal blue with the fall colors. I used minky for the backing and wheat thread for the quilting.
Batik quilt top
I just finished hand binding this batik quilt top that I purchased off of Etsy years ago. I visited my friend in Florida and quilted eight quilts (one of the eight quilts) while I was there. I'm giving this quilt to my husbands sister in law, since she loved this top when she visited last summer.
This Halloween gem of a Spooky Vibes fabric collection by Wilmington Prints makes good use of Crayola Smashed Pumpkin yardage as an accent and Chilled to the Bone black & white yardage by Northcott in the border. I fussy cut the black cats, since dismembered cats are just too spooky for me! I really love the choice of Anne Bright's "Ghostly" by my longarm quilter for the edge-to-edge design.
Autumnal Fresh Diamonds -- take 2
Getting busy with more autumnal quilting. Using two charm packs and adding an additional 7 charms from my stash I was able to enlarge this pattern by a few more rows. Here is the free tutorial: http://www.sameliasmum.com/2012/10/fresh-diamonds-easy-quilt-tutorial.html
I liked Jenny's Thanksgiving quilt and I thought it would look great using my leftover fabric from a large quilt I made with Moda's Modern Neutrals, so I downloaded the pattern and got to work on 'Mt. Scrapmore'. I like how it turned out: a modern take on American tradition.
