The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
Mod Bear Paw
The pattern is called Mod Bear Paw by sewfreshquilts. It was a little bit of “a bear” to make. There were a lot of 1” squares to work with and a number of narrow (3/4”) WOF strips to cut. I really struggle with cutting such narrow strips accurately. All in all though, I’m glad I made it, ‘cause I DO love a challenge. The instructions and illustrations were great...as always with Lorna’s patterns. The bear paw blocks are made from Blank Quilting Primitive Basics that I won in a giveaway. This is just the top. Lately I’ve only done tops and I store them until I am ready to gift them.
“The Big Star Quilt” MSQC - wedding gift -K
Not quilted yet, but I’m so excited! This is my FIRST queen sized quilt. I’ve only made throws and baby quilts. My daughter is getting married in April so...here is it. I’ve got toppers for shams too. (Not quite sure what to do with those yet).
Aqua on-point baby quilt
My new go-to for baby quilts is this aqua colorway. This is my first on-point quilt with cutting setting and corner triangles. This sweet baby is due Jan. 29, 2020. This finished at 42 x 42. I was inspired by someone on quiltsbyme who did Donna Jordan's bead quilt.
Christmas table runner
Having fun with the quick curve ruler again. Designed this using a Christmas ornament pattern from Sew kind if wonderful. I used cascading feathers and strings of pearls in the negative space and simple diamonds in the four patches on point. I struggled trying to match the pattern in the harlequin fabric, I will try to avoid using similar patterned fabric with the curved piecing.
I just finished piecing this Garden Stroll quilt top from American Patchwork and Quilting June 2013. I fell in love with this pattern when I saw it online. I used fabrics in teal, turquoise, aqua, and burgundy through light pink. I added two additional borders to make it queen size. 2nd picture is from pattern. 95" square

I made this queen size quilt top several years ago with yardage. I recently purchased a longarm machine, so I used it to practice stitching a pantograph. I don't own a queen size bed, so I laid it on top of my king size for the picture. I will give it to my daughter.
Pet the Bunny Toddler Quilt
When my daughter told me that my 7-month old grandson was "petting" various blankets and crocheted throws around her house, I began thinking about making a little minky-type quilt of his own to pet. This is what I came up with. The three bunnies are an embossed embroidery design (from EL). There is no batting in the quilt, just a non-stretchy, non-pilling piece of soft fleece for the backing. I think he'll love it, although he doesn't yet know what a bunny is. This quilt is 21 inches square.
Tameeka's X&O quilt
A sweet Friend and fellow City Clerk is battling breast cancer. God placed it on my heart to make her a quilt. MSQC X&O tutorial backed with cuddle cloth, along with a travel bag. Each stitch has been saturated in prayer in hopes God will lend his healing hands to Tameeka. Your prayers are welcome too!
