I made this for my 4yr old grandson who needed a longer quilt for his naptime at Day Care. He is now into dinosaurs. I went into my stash and came up with this design. I only bought backing from our local quilt shop to finish this. Hope he loves it and has fun looking at all the dinosaurs and fossils (on the back) on the quilt. The dinosaur fabric is from the Moda collection from a few years back - Jurassic Jamboree. Finished size is 44 x 53.
I used Jenny's Double-Slice quilt pattern to whip up a quilt for a colleague having a tough time. I wanted it to be bright and happy and wanted to use something from my stash. I had always loved these fabrics, so it was an easy choice. I'd had the fabric so long that I don't even remember the name. It is backed with Shannon. I bound it in red polka dot, which I thought was fun. This one is in the mail! I hope she feels loved when she wraps up in it.
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.
My sister and her husband purchased a lovely piece of property in the country, with a barn as the only building. For several years, they have been converting the barn into a home, which they recently moved into. Unknown to her, I started a couch throw for her in 2020, using Donna Jordan's "Ribbons" pattern and two packages of precut 5-inch squares from a line called "Urban Farmhouse". My sister told me that her new home would be decorated with neutrals (browns, greys, and black), which are her favorite colors. As I lay out the fabric pieces, I decided to add more variety with browns and blacks from my fabric stash. so I ended up with a larger quilt. When I finished quilting and binding the throw, this year, I named the quilt "Farmhouse" and mailed it to my sister as a surprise housewarming present. She declared it "perfect," and is using it as a topper over a neutral, solid-colored spread in her master bedroom. I am pleased that she loves it!
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.
Made this quilt using a pattern in one of Donna Peterson's 3 yard quilt books. Made it for our local quilt shop as they are currently promoting the patterns by this lady. Simple quilt to do for sure so I tried a bit of decoration for the outside border.
Our father contracted WNV back in early 2000s. He was hospitalized for some time. He lost the use of his legs. Being 6ft and weighing around 165, he was fairly thin anyway. He would get chilled easily and had asked me to make a lap quilt for traveling back and forth doctoring. He wanted it narrow enough to just fit in the wheelchair. I used old pants, batting and a chunk of leftover flannel. He worked with therapist and at home to try and strengthen his legs. He was fitted for leg braces and was able to finally walk with those and canes. Soon after his eyes started macula degeneration till he was so bad, he couldn't see. His mental health went downhill after that. He passed away in 2015. As a Cowboy all his life, we thought ranch life would have done him in, instead it was a mosquito.
