We started something...now the grandkids are in line waiting for their quilt from Mimi & Baba! This girl loves mermaids! Took awhile to find the right mermaid fabric, but finally found Mermaid Dreams Studio E right here at MSQ! The backing is a digital print from. spoonflower..a bit pricey but provided the perfect backing for this quilt! Again we use the patter Impurchased from anEtsy shop called Artistry With Fabric.
I could almost become a couch potato with this set of 4 pillow shams. A gift for nephew and wife from fabric they gave me last Christmas while requesting these pillows. I have to admit that piping is a pain for me but it looks so good when it is done. I watch the YouTube tutorials but something happens along the way and I end up with a seam on the wrong side of the piping case strip. I will not be deterred! (DEC2016)
Scanning YouTube, I am always looking for projects that can help me use up my to many containers of SCRAPS. I came across this great idea for Cell Phone Purses. QUILTSMART.COM has videos that if you buy their interfacing and instructions you can make cell phone purses, money holders, lamp shades etc. They even have some tricks for making quilts, too. I had fun just whipping a couple of crafts to delay finishing any quilt that I am working on. You know for us quilters we are always about that next project.
This is the second of 4 baby quilts on my current Projects. This is the new design that I came up with to speed up the time that it takes to complete these quilts. Play Games With Me title means on the front side you can play I SPY, on the back of the quilt you can play MATCHING HORSES. i hoping this will lead to a lot of fun between grandma and their grandchild. What did I learn? 6 X 6 = 36 inches which is small for any quilt. Since I was using a panel for the back I didn't account for how small the quilt would end up 36 X 48 inches. I am still debating how I am going to finish the other 2 quilts. the blocks are made and the panels are all cut up. We will just have to wait and see.
I made this quilt from a pattern by Jackie Frost, Ann Wendinger and Cindy Wendinger which A dear friend who is experiencing great challenges in her life is the recipient of this quilt. I hope the biblical verse gives her inspiration as she copes with those challenges.
I love this Gingiber Savannah fabric. I used animals from one of the panels to make this quilt. I'm making this quilt for a coworkers baby boy, Noah, who was born in May. I used the large animals from the fabric panel on the back of the quilt. UPDATE : I free motioned quilted swirls for the first time on this baby quilt. I learned a lot. I used a scrappy binding.
This my Dream Big panel by Hoffman and I was in love with it the first time I saw it and couldn't wait to get started. I thought it would take me months to do, boy was I wrong. I did it in five days! I was obsessed with it, I spend every spare moment I wasn't working or caring for my family working on it. It's been a long time since I was this excited about a project. It's far from perfect, it's been a while since I have done any free motion quilting, and I'm just using my domestic run of the mill sewing machine. I plan on doing another one just not sure what colour I will do next!
by Cherri House in Fons and Porter Baby Quilts magazine, Fall 2010. This is a quilt kit put together by my quilt guild. I volunteered to make. This quilt will be given to an organization that gives items to Foster children. I arranged the blocks in a diagonal color pattern as I liked the secondary hourglass pattern created with the snowballed corners. I added more blenders from my stash as the kit only had the patterned elephant fabric. 59" x 68"
This doll quilt was made for my granddaughter with leftover material from a quilt I made for her on her 1st birthday. She loves to play with her dolls so I'm sure this will get lots of use! That makes me happy! P.S. It was good practice for matching seams!
