The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
Recovering from surgery last November I was inspired but a wall hanging from Jordon Fabrics I wanted it to be bright cheerful and full of colours A happy quilt for brighter days. I really loved making it and learned a lot. Rachel was Longarm quilted by a lovely lady in Wales, a long way from Kent where I live but Debbie did an amazing job and I am thrilled with the result. I finished the 400 inches!! of hand binding yesterday I hope you like it
Voysey curved quilt
The Voysey collection, a William Morris reproduction line by Moda, inspired this quilt. The quilt measures 116x104. I used the quick curve ruler and the design wall to come up with this original design. Lots of feathers and some ruler work and pearls completed the quilting.
This is a quilt I made for my nephew's high school graduation. Blue and white are his school colors and I knew this would be perfect. 12" aquares of alternating windmill and star. The variation of the star allows an optical illusion that mimics a swirl or wind.
Sunburst (Bursting Block)
My eldest grandson graduated this spring and I wanted to make him a quilt. I was looking for a more masculine pattern and thought of Man Sewing's Burst Block. He races pickup trucks (or did pre-COVID) and his truck is orange and black. Once I ordered the fabric I though it would look great in the Burst Block pattern. It's not perfect but I love how it turned out. He loves it, which is even better.
Pandemic Quilt #2
Stash buster...as I put these scraps together during my pandemic quarantine...my psuedo jelly roll race quilt really got big....so I cut off part and made 2 quilts. This is the smaller one...which is a larger lap size. Thanks to Missouri Star for quilting both. I am totally amazed that I didn't use up everything in my stash!!!
Day Sail Moda Pillows
New place, NEW PILLOWS! I shopped around trying to find something to tie in some colors in our living room. NOTHING worked. So, I thought I'd add some color POP in our mellow toned living room. My son wanted to help so I had him arrange the hst sets. We went over color combos and pattern combos, how we should pair the hst and how we can avoid same colors in the same areas. I gotta say, the kid has a good eye!
Lots of Rectangles
This quilt was created out of leftover fabric I had from a previous project. But, of course, I needed to purchase a few new bold colors to make this quilt work. So, now I have leftovers again! But, I’m not complaining. The pattern I used is from allpeoplequilt.com. The quilt was machine quilted by MSQCO.
