Update: I quilted with Urban Elementz Nemesh's Feather Grande design. I sewed the binding on and took to neighbor's house just in time to be loaded on the moving truck. ---- This is the fabric I picked out for my neighbor's son to piece a quilt while he was home from school because of virus (if he wanted to make one). His two sister's pieced their quilts and I quilted them (posted earlier). He didn't piece it. The family is moving away for a couple years for work, at the end of the month. I decided to make him this quilt. I used the charm on point pattern for the middle (8 x 16 squares), I placed the same fabric on the diagonal cut line, so the outer triangles would be the same fabric (same as border fabric). I added LeMoyne Stars (Lemon stars) to the top and bottom to make it a rectangular quilt. I had some charms left from the 4 charm packs that I had of Wilmington Essentials Sapphire Sky (Beautiful fabric), so I made four patches for the sides. 75" x 87"
I bought 2 layer cakes of Cottage Joy by Shannon Christensen for Windham Fabrics, when on a visit to MSQC. I decided to make the Double Slice large 87x96, so I ordered more yardage. I love how this came out, The combination of the pattern and the fabric, somehow looks vintage to me. I love the mason jars! I quilted it with just stippling, on my sit down long arm, free motion. It's 10 x 11 four piece blocks, so 110 blocks. Hope you like it as much as I do and thanks AGAIN Jenny for such a simple pattern, but oh so pretty!
My daughter gave me a layer cake for Christmas and it took me awhile to decide what to make from the fabric. I was surprised at how easy this was to make. I think the colors will make it a nice Christmas quilt. I followed a Missouri Star Quilt pattern and tutorial for this quilt. The only changes I made were to make the sashing burgundy rather than white. I also followed a MSQC tutorial for flange binding and included a picture of the binding. I was happy with how it turned out; it was a quick, pretty way to machine stitch a binding.
One more baby quilt for our Covid baby boom. Mom and Dad have chosen an airplane theme for the nursery. I found this pattern on Etsy and added the clouds and checkerboard border. White minky on the back. The tan plane wings have the baby's initials. The pattern is Squadron Leader by Carla Morris ( Granny Maud's Girl). Quilted swirls and jet streams behind the planes. I used some of my favorite fabrics from my stash. I love how it cameout.
I saw Jenny's tutorial for this quilt and immediatly purchased the pattern and fabric that was available as the daily deal. Sat on it for some time and then "COVID". I have put 10 quiltrs together in the last three months. I think MSQC quilted at least 7 of them. I have a longarm now :-)
I am finishing up projects while home due to covid-19. 3 years ago a friend who was a quilt shop owner now retired, donated plaid and flannel material to me to make a quilt for my hubby. I had much leftover so took the 3 boxes and cut them into workable 10, 5 inch squares and 2 1/2, 2 and 1 1/2 strips. I have donated it all to our quilter group at our church. It all will be quilts donated to needy places in community.
I saw this Cozy Quilt Designs Tradewinds quilt in a tutorial on YouTube and loved the large pinwheel blocks. I used the design and then added the top and bottm pieced boarders. I had MSQC quilt this one for me. I couldn't resist requesting the swirl design for the pinwheels. They did a great job!
My daughter wanted to make pot holders. We didn't want to free motion quilt each one individually so we made 36 blocks using the inner portion of one of Jenny's blocks. We sewed them into a 6 block x 6 block quilt top with no boarders and put it on the longarm with a wide back, a layer of 80/20 cotton batting, and a layer of metalized reflective batting. My daughter used a pantograph to do the edge-to-edge quilting. When finished I cut the blocks apart and added the binding to the 36 blocks. 18 of the blocks were squared to 11 1/2 inches square and 18 were cut and squared to 10 inches square.
