Peggy's Quilt #18 - Bermuda Batiks
This was my quilting project from October 2016 through February 2017. It's my 18th quilt, and is named for the tropical feel of the batik colors. The pattern is "Disappearing Hourglass 2" by Jenny Doan at MSQC. There is a tutorial video on YouTube from December 2014. The pattern is also in BLOCK magazine Winter Vol. 2, issue 1, starting on page 16. My finished quilt size is 65”x65” and the fabrics for the top are assorted batiks with Wilmington Essential Paisley White on White, which I also used for the mitered borders, backside and binding. While I did the piecing, I still send my quilts out to a LAQ expert for long arm quilting. Lynn Durbin at Camlyn Quilts in Smokey Point, Washington has done most of my quilts! I think of 'quilting' as the pattern selection, color and fabric selection and piecing, and then I leave the LAQ part to someone with a talent for that part of the process. Posted by Peggy on June 7, 2017. I love quilting!

Nathan's 13th Birthday Quilt
I wanted to make a masculine quilt using Nathans' favorite colors. I had no idea what a teenage boy might like! This one spent a lot of time on the design wall. My husband helpfully suggested using the reds in a diamond pattern. Very happy with the results!
I recently ordered some fabric on Craftsy. They included a free charm pack called Lilly & Loom...it's cute fabric but what do you do with one charm pack?...a baby quilt of course :-) I am giving this to a gal at work expecting here first baby (girl). I did FMQ using varigated thread...I was a little worried about the thread color/s since I usually use white or cream colors...but it came out ok.

Sparkling Waters Batik - 3 Dudes Pattern
Wanted a "manly" quilt for my favorite nephew's high school graduation gift - he loved it. Used Sparkling Waters - Artisan Batik Prisma Dye Roll Up & Kona Black Skinny Strips. Learned the hard way what happens if you aren't SUPER careful with quarter inch seams and stretching your diagonal cuts - eeeekkkk! Jenny & Rob/Man Sewing Tutorial was great.
I made this quilt for our niece who graduated from high school and will be attending the University here. We are big Griz fans here and I incorporated the logo with her favorite colors. The school colors and burgundy and grays and her favs are blues. It's off getting quilted now.
Used a jelly roll for the first time. Decided when I was half way through sewing the strips that it would be a lovely quilt for our niece for her 21st Birthday. Only the 2nd time I have completed a quilt using FMQ. Large meander with pebbles in the dividing strips. Quilted using Marti Michell's quilting in sections technique on my small Janome machine. I'm starting to enjoy FMQ.
