I had been piecing quilts for some time, and wanted to learn how to sew curved pieces. The ruler, and the pattern sat for a long time, years actually, until I finally decided I had a precut that I thought would work with it. It was hard at first, and I had to tear out but finally got it done.
I made this quilt for my daughter and her new husband. I used Sew Kind of Wonderful's Metro Lattice pattern, except I used 10 inch squares of fabric instead of pinwheel blocks. The color palette was taken from the colors worn by the bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and grandmother of the bride. The rings are the same color as her wedding dress. The colors of the bridesmaids dresses were difficult to match, so I had to use prints which belong in different time periods. I went to every fabric store within 30 miles of my house to find the right colors. I pieced the back with the leftover fabric, and I designed it so that the seams from the front would not match up with any of the seams on the backside. They went to Alaska on their honeymoon, so that's why I have that panel in the center. I used SewWhatPro to create the label. The font is called Segoe Script.
This is a baby quilt for my 3rd Granddaughter, Jemma Marie. She is due in March 2020. I choose Butterflies and Berries, by Riley Blake. It has a matching border in the same fabric line, with a white binding. The backing is also done in the same fabric as the border. The label was custom ordered from a seller on Etsy. **Please pray for my precious Granddaughter, as my daughter-in-law has had some complications with her pregnancy. Thank you all so much!**
This is my 32nd quilt. It's a kit from Connecting Threads named "Stars & Plaid", using the Hometown Americana fabric line. I donated it in September 2019 to a Veteran's support group named 'Salmon for Soldiers' in Everett, Washington. The size is 70"x88", the batting is 80/20 Cotton Poly, the long arm quilting was done by Lyn at Camlyn Quilts in Smokey Point, Washington. Posted 11/27/19 by Peggy.
Update: My friend finished quilting on her longarm and it is bound. I can't get the full picture to load (sides are cut off), but this gives you an idea of finished quilt. This Sea Glass Quilt is a customer quilt for my friend's longarm business. I used my Accuquilt studio orange peal die (14" long) to cut out these flower petals. The customer supplied these non cotton 60" wide fabrics. The interfacing I used to turn the orange peels inside out (to give a finished edge, Like Jenny does in her orange peel tutorial) wouldn't stick to the non cotton fabric. I would normally sew these on with my domestic machine first, but the quilt top is so large. We had to pin the orange peels to the top. We had fun placing the orange peels in the flower pattern. My friend is going to stitch the petals down with her longarm. The quilt has to be done before Christmas. We made the quilt bigger than the pattern 100" x 110"
This quilt used the free Genny & Ruth pattern by Elizabeth Hartman from Missouri Star Quilt Company, which I adapted to work with my Accuquilt 8" dies. I had boxes and boxes of Kaffe Fasset scraps & yardage going back years. This quilt and a few others in progress are great for using up the stash. The background is my go-to background for Kaffe fabrics- Kona Cotton- Slate.
I just finished hand binding two custom quilting vintage linens quilts for my friend's long arm business. They have double batting (wool and 80/20 cotton blend) and were so heavy to bind. They are Christmas presents for the ladies two daughters. The back of the quilts are pictured. Both are 100" x 100"
I finished hand binding this Little Red Schoolhouse quilt. This is the 7th finished quilt of the 8 quilts that I quilted on my friend's computerized longarm when I visited her in Florida in October 2019. This quilt will go to one of my son's friends that loves red and white quilts. 84" x 93 1/2 "
