I made this quilt for our son's girlfriend. The inspiration came from the quilts on this blog. http://exuberantcolor.blogspot.com/p...sh-quilts.html Most of the batik rectangles were cut from scrap pieces plus a few FQ's. The quilt has 476 4"x2" (finished size) rectangles for a completed size of 56" x 68". All the fabrics are batiks & most I have been hoarding for a few years. I used the walking foot to sew simple wavy lines across the quilt. Her favorite colors are blue, green & purple.
I love helping people to realize their hidden potential, especially for those who have a deep need for hope and purpose in their life. This no sew project was inspired by just this motivation. I created this no sew quilt project to be inclusive for those who have disabilities or physical / cognitive challenges. We are even starting our own no sew quilt guild in which we will celebrate the works of participants across memory care residences, blind and visually impaired groups, senior care and disability programs. Our recently patented Mitsy Kit tactile sewing system was used to create this project kit, and other Sewing and no sew versions as well. We are excited to be able to expand our kits to enable broader levels of participation and promote a more inclusive Sewing and quilting community! www.MitsyKit.org. www.Facebook.com\Mitsykit
My Autumn is only 4 years old ... but last October while making her mom's Halloween costume ... Autumn wanted to sew ... so this month I let her use the little Janome machine I bought her .. she started sewing her squares together .. really well and that machine was ruff ... Nana helped her finish .. and Gennell did the top stitching ... but it turned out so cute ... I love My little quilter.
The Ultimate Travel Bag pattern is by Annie Unrein, found at ByAnnie.com and Craftsy. This project takes attention to detail, perseverance and a really sturdy sewing machine that will handle multiple layers of fabric, zipper and stabilizer. It also comes with a hefty price tag especially if you go with the hardware kit as suggested in the pattern, stabilizer, zippers, netting and quality quilting fabric. A walking foot is very useful, so better get one if you don't already have one. Cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching. All that being said, sewing the bag along with viewing the online Craftsy class is a must because of the very specialized techniques taught by Annie Unrein. I highly recommend the experience. The fabric I used is AGF (Art Gallery Fabrics) Sage Cactus Flora - Lily, and Sage Painted Dessert - Night. The bag is very sturdy and will easily accommodate my Singer Featherweight box plus fabric and tools/rulers for a sewing get-away. This project was completed January 31, 2018, and posted here by Peggy on May 31, 2018.
This is for my grand niece's big girl bed as she is getting too big for her crib. I watched the MSQ tulip quilt tutorial and then changed it up with a pin wheel boarder on two sides and scrappy binding. I used part of an "I spy sweet things" layer cake and and a "confetti" charm pack and fabric from my stash. Bright yellow minky on the back. FMQ feathers, scallops, some ruler work and wavy lines.
The True Blue pattern is in Miss Rosie's Spice of Life Quilts by Carrie L. Nelson, a Leisure Arts book published in 2010. This is my 3rd quilt, which I started July 19, 2015 and finished piecing on Sept 13, 2015. I used Hobbs Heirloom 100% cotton batt and the backing is 108" wide Clara's Garden in the color Basil. Quilted by Lyn at Camlyn Quilts, finished size 80 X 80". I made 4 pillow cases to match. I really wanted a green quilt for my last quilting project because green is my favorite color and who needs more than 3 quilts? (I'm a knitter and a spinner, and this quilting thing is just a hobby-bump-in-the-road, right?) I enjoyed this pattern a lot and learned how to piece tinier pieces than on my first 2 quilts, although not perfectly. I look at it now and wonder why it was ok to not fix some of the points of the pinwheels when I had the chance. I know Jenny says "better done than perfect" but I'm sure "could have been better, if not perfect" is the way I want to go. I don't care how long it takes me to make a quilt top, as it's the only one I'm working on anyway so I have the time. "One project at a time" is my motto! This doesn't mean I don't have fabric for future projects, just that I don't start more than one. (There's a cautionary knitting tale there, one involving 17 ufo's.) I'm loving the scrappy look of my first 3 quilts. Posted 05-23-18.
Purchased a Pioneer Woman tablecloth, free-motion quilted it, cut pieces out and made my Granddaughter a Kitchen Aid mixer cover to go with her mixer she will receive as a Bridal Shower gift in July. Thanks to You Tube, Pinterest and MSQC tutorials combined to make this unique shower gift. Monogram design by Designs by JuJu.
I received some "stash" from a woman who can no longer use a rotary cutter, or sew on a machine, but she can and does hand quilt every week. I wanted to thank her, so I made this quilt for her 91 year old veteran husband, using new fabrics and incorporating some of her stash in the quilt top and back. It was a 'rush' project to make it for a previously planned celebration, so this is the only picture I have. It was hand quilted by a friend.
I made this from MSQC youtube tutorial, by unpicking a second Starburst quilt top I had made for my mother. She said she would like a different pattern for her second sofa after I had made the second Starburst! Sheila brought me into the world so because I had none of that fabric left I unpicked the Starburst. This resulted in some really wonky HSTs and dodgy points! I got fed up with it so will quilt it in the "near" future!
