I used fabric from 9 different charm packs, with metallics in most of them, to make this Laundry Basket Quilts pattern. I made my blocks bigger than the pattern, tho. It’s an anniversary gift. Wish it was for MY anniversary! The pictures can’t do this quilt justice. They are Star Wars fans and her name is Rachel.....thus the backing....
A young couple in our church had a premature baby boy born three months early at one lb. 3 oz. I made this bright quilt for him. Plenty to look at, feel the prairie points, and the bright green milky on the back is so soft. There is plenty for a baby boy's fingers to keep busy. The fabric line is Later Alligator, by Sandy Gervais as in the title. I used "Hooray" by Patric Loose for background. The quilting is a loop and 3 circles which looks like baby rattles. I made a matching changing pad with triple batting for softness. I used my go to Moda Love Star for the center adding longer borders and prairie points for top and bottom.
We did a 5,000 mile road trip this summer visiting friends and family. A long time friend and past coworker of my husband's retired to Tennessee. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time with them. They have a painting with these colors in it...so hence this quilt. This was fabric from my stash. I love the teal blue with the fall colors. I used minky for the backing and wheat thread for the quilting.
I just finished hand binding this batik quilt top that I purchased off of Etsy years ago. I visited my friend in Florida and quilted eight quilts (one of the eight quilts) while I was there. I'm giving this quilt to my husbands sister in law, since she loved this top when she visited last summer.
This Halloween gem of a Spooky Vibes fabric collection by Wilmington Prints makes good use of Crayola Smashed Pumpkin yardage as an accent and Chilled to the Bone black & white yardage by Northcott in the border. I fussy cut the black cats, since dismembered cats are just too spooky for me! I really love the choice of Anne Bright's "Ghostly" by my longarm quilter for the edge-to-edge design.
Needed a baby boy quilt for sports enthusiastic parents. Riley Blake's "Play Ball" fabric line was perfect. I used my quick Mode Love Star Free Pattern and backed it with a blue pre-washed flannel with light blue thread for the quilting in stars & swirls. I used the stripe fabric for the star's center legs. I'm making two burp cloths with the left overs.
About 3 years ago I went to a estate sale that advertised much sewing supplies. There was a whole room full of stuff in no particular organized manner. In one corner was a huge pile of stuff. When I asked why it was so piled up they stated it was trash. At the very front was a large shopping bag with what appeared to be a sewn quilt top. I pulled the tangled dirty thing out and saw it was savable. Washed it and cut the fraying seams, restiched a few and pressed it many times to get it flat. When I asked how much they told me a $1.00 as it was trash. Donating this to Bowl Pink which helps local women who face cancer.
