Update: I quilted with Urban Elementz Nemesh's Feather Grande design. I sewed the binding on and took to neighbor's house just in time to be loaded on the moving truck. ---- This is the fabric I picked out for my neighbor's son to piece a quilt while he was home from school because of virus (if he wanted to make one). His two sister's pieced their quilts and I quilted them (posted earlier). He didn't piece it. The family is moving away for a couple years for work, at the end of the month. I decided to make him this quilt. I used the charm on point pattern for the middle (8 x 16 squares), I placed the same fabric on the diagonal cut line, so the outer triangles would be the same fabric (same as border fabric). I added LeMoyne Stars (Lemon stars) to the top and bottom to make it a rectangular quilt. I had some charms left from the 4 charm packs that I had of Wilmington Essentials Sapphire Sky (Beautiful fabric), so I made four patches for the sides. 75" x 87"
Used some of the Lexington stash I still have for this one. Love it.....it was a gift for a young boy that desperately wanted his great great grandma (who used to quilt) to make him his own quilt, but she wasn't able anymore. I decided any child that wanted his own quilt that badly should definitely have one. He was thrilled.
Was making this as baby gift originally and added lace between the borders to make the blues look a little more girly, but these are my colors and I loved it so much I decided to make a different quilt for the gift and keep this to put on the back of my loveseat. Fabric for blocks was the Lexington line by Minick & Simpson.
A very dear friend got married on New Years Eve. I made this special quilt just for her and her husband. They take part in Civil War Reenactments and use this quilt to cover anything modern in their tent. Last year I made his & hers matching pillowcases and two bivy sacks to hid more modern goodies. She replaced the rag drawstring with some leathder.
On our first visit to Missouri Star Quilt Co. I bought this pattern and all the fabric for it at the Mercantile shop. I kept the supplies for over a year, remembering the trip, the excitement of being in Hamilton, etc. Last Fall, my daughter and I visited MSQC again, this time for a 4 day retreat and I bought fabric enough for 2 more quilts. I came home and started this quilt, completing it this Spring, and now entering it in the Oregon State Fair in August. Thank you, Jenny! You inspire me.
