Quilt #16. Kit was from Missouri Star in 2018, Island Batiks fabric, twin size 63x78. Started June 2019, finished July 2019. White muslin back, Hobbs 80/20 bleached cotton/poly batt. Quilting by Lyn at Camlyn Quilts, pattern is Loops & Stars in a taupe thread so it would show, and at the bottom is Simon's name and the date. This is for our grandson for his 11th birthday on Feb 20, 2020, and my sister Peggy (Bothtwins) made the same quilt for the granddaughters' birthday - so fun to work on the same project together! It's the 4th set of quilts we've made for those kids, and we're worrying that their mom will say "ENOUGH" but that's silly...who doesn't love lots and lots of quilts? This was a very quick and simple project, once we figured out how to use the two (very expensive) curved rulers that are called for in the pattern. Good thing we could share. $60.00+ is a lot for rulers we may never use again. Pillowcase to match. Posted 022020
Purchased this layer cake named "Smitten with Spring" by Windham Fabric in February 2018 with intentions to make a quilt for a friend who loves gardening. And the color green. These were to pretty to cut up so used them as there were and decided it would be a good time to try and quilt them with my embroidery machine, which I have been told can be done. So got a feather, flower software for the quilting and got out my hoop and did my best to get this done. Finally February of 2020 . IT IS DONE AND DELIVERED. WHEW1 Quilting on the embroidery machine is very labor intense .
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.
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.
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!
This is my 33rd quilt. It’s a twin size at 62”W x 78”L before washing. The Mod Owls pattern is by Jenny Pedigo and Helen Robinson for Sew Kind of Wonderful. The kit was purchased from Missouri Star in July 2018 but I didn’t start sewing until May 2019, finishing in June 2019. The quilt and pillowcase are for my granddaughter Bennett Rose, for her 8th birthday in February 2020. This was fun to make because of the batik fabric and curved owls – my first effort at sewing curves. The free-motion long arm quilting was beautifully completed by Lyn Durbin. At my request, she used a darker thread so that the leaves and curls would show on the light batik background as well as the owl fabrics. My sister and I bought a set of books to go with this owl themed quilt. The series is Guardians of Ga’Hoole” by Kathryn Lasky. I hope the grandkids will enjoy sitting under the owl quilt reading owl stories. Posted by Peggy at Bothtwins on February 5, 2020.
I think I have no noticeable mistakes on this one! I have made dozens of quilts and I get to the very end when I notice some error and don't want to take it apart, so I just give it away to someone. This one is special, and will stay with me until I give it to someone very special!
So I just love that North star pattern and decided to make a smaller version to see if I could ACTUALLY do it. I make quilts for christmas for teams at my office. New girl says she Looooooves olive. So I search and search for Olive and find it. I have 3 weeks to do it in and I think YOU can do it! Guys I love the pattern but I suck at making this thing. Lots of tears and whining. I just can't do it. I almost went to just go BUY her one but couldn't find OLIVE! Got it done and my quilt frame grabbed it and stretch the edges on one side- all the other waves are from near impossible pattern following me - but hey, at least one side was NOT. I get credit for that one side that was perfect I swear. She loved it so I guess that is all that matters! Got-er-done the day before Christmas and she is pretty but Lord did I get close to God with those prayers I can tell ya.
Twins were brewing - Farm boys to be exact. Poor lady I worked with looked so gi-normous poor dear! I decided to try the disappearing thingy blocks as I had 9 months. Again- can't follow a pattern and bidirectionally challenged got me too. But I did make it in 10months so at least they hadn't grown up yet, whew! Used farm animals and white and they did turn out cute. Learned more than I ever wanted to know about seam allowances for SURE. Things don't match up to well but DONE is better than perfect sometimes and by God they got done and gifted!
