I'm not sure if my mother made this or someone else did, like another family member? It has somehow become in my possession. It's falling apart in spots. I just wanted to share a picture of something in the older style of pattern. Never know? Maybe someone is looking for a new and different look, style or a challenge? The "batting" is disintegrating in spots, it feels like beads in the corners or wadded up newspaper of sorts. I took a picture of the layers as the binding has worn thin. Take a close look at the fabrics, someone may be able to date this? Enjoy!
My Mom finished these embroideries and asked me to assemble and then quilt the quilt for a Great Nephew's 1st birthday. It was all done on my Mom's domestic machine so the quilting is a bit shaky but she was happy and packaged it all up for my Sister to take to the birthday party. Fastest quilt ever! Will need to check my "list of chores" before I go up to visit next time!
Made from a panel meant to be sewn like a vest over a sweatshirt . I didn't follow the pattern as I didn't like the gap by the sleeve. I cut the sweat shirt up the middle and fitted the pattern printed on panel to the shirt. Then I sewed on all the patterns in design to make it appear quilted. Another church sale item but if no one buys this it is coming back home for me.
Okay, this got a little crazy. Using the Tri-Rec Ruler, I got busy making trees. It finished at 44 x 48. I added the dotted border to "tame" it a bit. First time using this ruler and was glad to see I didn't lose any points. I think this is going to a child I have in mind.
So, back in the day, I purchased two of these kits. My fantacy was to have matching quilts in the kiddo's room and in our room. Alas, kiddo said he'd rather something different. No biggie. I went ahead and made both quilt tops with plans on returning to them at a later date to add borders etc etc. In a drawer they went. Plans changed... again. I completed one quilt for a raffle, and someone else fell in love with the other quilt. Therefore it is being made into a queen size quilt and shipped off as a gift. *sigh* Still need to make my bed a quilt.... LOL!!
I signed up to take a mini quilt class and had purchased batiks. but I did not have time to get them washed and pressed, These are the batiks I had chosen to use for the class. This one was more difficult, primarily because I arbitrarily changed my 1/4" seams and messed up the spacing, so I punted and tried to pull it off. I think I will do this again, but swap the blue for the purple. (This piece is approximately 14.5" x 14.5".)
This is part of this years sprint to Christmas. I had a matched pair of layercakes that had been in my stash for over a year. I came across this old tutorial and thought I'd give it a shot. When I'd made it through the first layercake I hated the outcome. It just didn't look right. I felt as though I was committed at that point and soldiered on. Now, I find I like it.
This was 3 years in the making. The colored fabrics are batiks. The center pattern is called Old Sawmill. I decided to do the top, bottom and sides something different. I ran out of the white on white during the pandemic and Puddleducks Quilts in England sent me the fabric I needed. I then had to figure out how to finish it, do the calculations and then execute it. I sent it to our local long arm quilter who put pattern Eve in blue thread on it. Binding is a dark blue batik. I'm very happy with the results.
I bought this beautiful Lonestar quilt top off of Etsy years ago. I love the colors. It was 61" square. I added extra borders to make it 73" x 79". I quilted it with a Wasatch Design called "Sherbert" and used Omni Blue Ice thread and Hobb's 80/20 batting. I hand bound it. This quilt will be a gift for my daughter's friend.
