Update: quilted and bound. This Army Uniform version of Bonnie Hunter's "Blue Ridge Beauty" quilt pattern is a quilt top made from a retired Army man's uniforms and one of his dad's Army uniforms with black and cream yardage. It's one of 6 quilts that he ordered from my friends long arm business. I got to pick the patterns to use. I've been wanting to make this pattern for a long time. 75" x 91"
Quilted and bound - This "Simply Serene" memory quilt top is made from a retired Army man's uniforms and one of his dad's Army uniforms with black, white and gray yardage. It's one of 6 quilts that he ordered from my friends long arm business. It's huge - 98" x 113"
While packing up to move, I found this almost finished quilt I made with 9 FQs; it needed a label and finishing of the binding. I embroidered a small design on each of the base blocks and played with my specialty stitches and coloured thread along each seam. It was made about 8 years ago and I’m quite sure it was a line from Red Rooster fabrics.
BLOCK magazine pattern Dashing Stars. Loved this huge block design. I wanted the secondary pattern of squares to look less random so I partially completed the blocks, laid them out and then finished the outer edges with the preferred ‘snowball’ colour for the secondary block.
Well being stuck at home now for 3 months or so a bit stir crazy with no social contact here. Have cleaned the whole house from top to bottom, painted rooms, redid yard in places. Today I made this table center piece. The 3 bags of poly to stuff it arrived yesterday from MSQC very timely indeed. Used scrapes in stash and pattern free garage sale find. McCall's # 3777 Also has tree skirt, stockings, wreath and many tree ornaments in pattern package.
This is my first time making hearts. While this turned out alright, I think instead of quadrants, I'd rather have half one fabric and half another fabric. I make and send out many baby quilts so I know this one will find a home, but I think I'll make another similar to this but less busy by changing fabric selections a bit.
