These delightful machine embroidered squares were purchased by my friend from our local Red Cross store. She kindly gave them to me to make into something special. I had the perfect flannelette fabric to make a suitable cot quilt. I will most likely donate this to the Perth Children's Hospital, WA Australia.
I used one of Donna Roberson's 3 yard quilt patterns from her 2021 pattern book and modified the borders. I used Kaffe Fassett Cactus Flower fabric for the focus fabric and the blue is part of Moda's Grunge fabric (Blue Sky - I think). The purple was a blender fabric from our local quilt shop. Love how it came out.
A sweet friend, Shelly, donated fabrics and the pattern for these two quilts. She had cut out the fabric for the flowers quilt and it went together quickly. The fish fabric was just too cute to cut up so I decided to use the same pattern. The First Heartbeat pattern is by Terri Vanden Bosh. Hope a child likes them.
Seen Jenny's tutorial on this pattern. It makes up very easily. Although the only dislike I have was there were too many seams, hard to lay flat. That being said. I used a citrus jelly roll and blue Turquoise for background. The wedding colors were the yellows, oranges, green and blue. This was made for classmates daughter for wedding, May 1, 2021. Just finished the binding yesterday. Mother of bride says it's bright! Said they will love it. It's 90x 90. I stitched the couples name, date and location of wedding in border. I put parents initials also in border along with my name and location. I made my own stencil to use in the circles and border.
I recently came across this delightful pattern (designed by Casey York & by windhamfabrics.com.) whilst I was looking for something special to make for my friend who is pregnant with her first baby. I fell in LOVE with this and it is such a fun pattern to make. It measures 65"x75" so is a single bed size rather than a cot size. However, I just couldn't resist making this darling pattern especially when my local fabric store had the PERFECT fabric to use also.
I made this quilt for my friend's son who became an Eagle Scout last year but had the awards ceremony today. He is graduating this year and going to Virginia Tech in the fall. I used solid colors for the strips (I picked out colors from the Eagle panel) and added an additional color of strips on the top and bottom of the panel. I added extra borders to make the quilt bigger since the Eagle Scout is 6'2". He plans to take the quilt to college. I quilted it with a swirl pattern from Wasatch Quilting. I used Hobbs 80/20 black batting and Omni light gray thread. I stayed up all night hand binding it for the event yesterday. 75" x 95"
Made this quilt for one of my sisters using the Man Sewing Burst Block Template for 10" Squares and tutorial from MSQC. Had a jelly roll of Artisan Batiks in my stash that worked perfect for this quilt. Was to excited to give to my sister, I forgot to take pictures. There appears to be an unmade bed underneath the quilt...oh well.
