For my grandson's wedding quilt, Missouri Star Grand Adventures pattern seem to fit the bill. He enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and other outdoor activities that the northwest has in great abundance. The quilt size 93” x 90” is a generous size. I selected the digital print Wildwood Way 10 inch layered precut Handpicked Exclusively for MSQC from RJR Studio. The background of light green/white small checked fabric called “Flourish” by Natalia and Kathleen of Piece-n-Quilt from Moda Fabrics. The 20 large blocks 15” x 18” allowed for the beautiful patterns of the fabric to shine. I also added complementary batiks from my stash collection. I embroidered and quilted northwest woodland scenes and designs and I incorporated one of the background blocks with the wedding couple's name and wedding date. Sewed matching pillowcases from the remaining fabrics.
I never really thought I would like making crumb blocks until I tried. After watching Misty and the Quilting Marine, I have become an addict for them! I am a veteran and even though I never experienced the level of PTSD as a lot of my fellow veterans, I find the process quite calming.
I offered to make a quilt for my 11 year old grandniece. She picked out the pattern and the fabric. This is the first quilt I have done on a long arm machine with a pantograph. I love the way it turned out. My cat, who runs my quality control department, approves. The pattern is split pinwheels by Orange Dots Quilts. It is available at orangedotsquilts.etsy.com The pattern resulted in lots of extra half square triangles, so I made several pillows.
Update: I quilted with Wasatch Quilting design Daisy 2021 and hand bound. I made this quilt top for my Aunt. My Aunt's favorite colors are pink and green. The background fabric has cream with green leaves on it. It is made of nine patch blocks alternated with another nine patch block that has four patches in the corners. I love chaining four patches. I used some vintage fabric for this quilt. I've been making quilts for all my aunts. I have one more quilt to make. I hope to quilt it tomorrow. 62" 71"
I've had these charm packs sitting and WAITING for something this fun to put together. I held my breath as I sliced up the nine patches in hopes that I didn't encounter regret or ruler slips. So happy this quilt surpassed my reservations and came out super cute. 51" x 51"
I have twenty-six grandchildren, 13 boys and 13 girls. For each I made receiving blankets from flannel and then crochet around the edge. I kept the scrapes from those blankets. Now the great grandchildren are coming and here is what I am making for them. Taking the scrapes that were from that grandchild and cutting hearts and appliqueing them on the flannel charm packs I can get at Missouri Star Quilts.
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"
Also from my Mom's stash were these three fabrics (blue prints) in fairly large quantities. Using the same pattern as from Granddaughters quilt, but putting one of the prints in the center. I ordered by guess and by gosh a white background and sort of turquoise print. Yeah! It worked well enough that with all these was able to get a queen-sized quilt. I will have to edit this when finished; need backing!
