I saw Bonnie Hunter's step by step instructions on making her Carolina Chain Quilt. I wasn't in the mood to set the 2 blocks on point so I played around with them and came up with this design using 2" squares from Nana's donation. Hope a child likes it!
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.
It's been 5 months since I could sit and sew, or for that matter, even turn on my machine. My husband was quite ill and for a time we didn't think he would make it. With the Grace of God, he seems to be getting better. At any rate, I sat down and did one of Jenny Doan's 9 patch. Quilting was done by Ann from Blue House Quilting. Used 100% cotton jelly rolls.
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.
I had alot of scrap batting that needed to be used, and this sweet little rag quilt used most of it. I used yardage from Riley Blake's "Modern Farmhouse" collection. I didn't follow a pattern, just cut various size strips and ragged them together, no quilting either, so this went together fast.
I have a wonderful boss. She recently became a first-time grandparent. I wanted to make something for her grandson. I had the Little Prince fabric that was perfect. I backed it with a blue swirl with stars and had it quilted in a loopy pattern with stars. The pattern I used was "Side by Side" by Come What May Creations. My boss learned French as a young girl, and the LIttle Prince was the first full book she read. I did not know about this when I made the quilt, but it makes it more special.
