This past week, I visited my local quilt shop. They always have finished quilts hanging on their walls. The minute I seen this one in their shop, I just had to buy the fabric to make it. I haven't heard of this pattern before, but they called it, "Just Can't Cut It". The fabric is Studio 8 for Quilting Treasures. (Www.QTfabrics.com) This pieced very quickly. Update: 7/19/18 Quilting is complete! I usually go with white thread for the quilting, but this time, I decided to use a berry colored thread to show more of the quilting. Very happy with the results!
I had come across this mini charm bag on Shabby Fabrics YouTube channel with Bethany. She did an amazing tutorial on making this bag, down to every detail. I used Nantucket Summer by Camille Roskelley. You can buy the mini charm packs, or cut your own into 2.5” squares. It takes 40. I decided to use some white fabric since my zipper is white, along with the pull tabs. The inside lining is from this collection, in a blue/white floral. I also purchased the sailboat zipper charm, which finishes this bag off nicely. Since I am from the Ocean state, it has some significant meaning to me.
I have always loved the Hunter's Star Quilt Block. Lately, I've been using a lot of HST's for my projects. With this project, I used the Crazy 8 method. (You will need 16 HST's total) I used a dark purple, and contrasting white. The back is solid purple. The tutorial for this pillow showed an envelope back, but I decided to install an invisible zipper instead. The finished pillow is a 16" x 16".
10-24-20 Quilting is finished! I selected a rose pattern for the quilting design. The backing is a light blue print. Binding is done is the same blue print as the outer border. Today, 9/18/20, I finished piecing a Sugar Creek Pinwheel quilt. (By Corey Yoder) My daughter previously "claimed" my Flit and Bloom Disappearing Nine Patch, but changed her mind when she had seen this collection. She has a pinwheel quilt already, but she says, "Mom, I want to get as many quilts from you as I can, before you go". I don't plan on going anywhere! She's too funny! LOL
I had seen this Gingham quilt made by Elizabeth Chappell of Quilter's Candy. (thank you for sending me the easy to follow instructions!) She made hers in peach colors, with a peach print for her backing. I just loved hers, so I decided to make mine in pink, fuchsia, and white. My backing is a large floral print I purchased on Etsy. I quilted it on my Sweet Sixteen with my quilting rulers. This was a fast, and fun lap quilt to make! Finished size is approximately 55 1/2" x 65 1/2".
On 3-3-2022, my sweet granddaughter was born at 1:10pm CST. We are so blessed to have her in our lives! I made this quilt out of a celestial fabric collection, chosen by my daughter-in-law. This Disappearing Nine Patch is a crib size. It was quilted with stars and swirls. Backing is done in a aqua fabric.
For my birthday in July (2018), my son and daughter-in-law gave me a Fat Quarter Bundle (38 piece set) of Voyage, by Kate Spain, for Moda. I fell in love with the fabric line the minute I opened it up. On this quilt, I decided to make the hour glass pattern. I made 60 blocks, and chose a dark purple for the backing. I used the stippling design for the quilting. I planned on giving this to my 2nd Granddaughter for Christmas 2018, but didn't get it finished in time.
This baby quilt is made from the Lecien Retro Child's 30's Bunny collection. I looked at other fabric, but kept coming back to this. It was 10 fat quarters cut into charm squares. It's just a random placement of the various fabrics, using Kona Snow for the border. Quilting was done in a straight line pattern, with hearts on the border. Backing is yardage from the collection. I used a pink and white striped binding from my Olive's Flower Market fabric. UPDATE: This quilt was made for my 2nd Granddaughter, River Leigh, who was born Sunday, 11-5-17. Such a sweet blessing!
I had a layered cake of Extravaganza, and a solid white layered cake, so I decided to make my first pinwheel quilt. It has a 2" solid white inner border, along with a five inch outer border done in the fabric collection. Backing and binding is a purple blender fabric . Quilting is done in a large swirl design. Completed 2-4-2016.
John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Verse 17, For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
I just finished a table topper with my sister, during her visit to my home. I chose “Beautiful Day”, by Corey Yoder. It makes a nice size table topper. With the left over fabric, we simply cut out 4 squares for the backing. It was a lot of fun to make, and share our quilting time together! (September 2022)
