I took a photo from my garden and had it made into a fabric panel (at spoon flower). I then quilted it TO DEATH. I used double batting and 6 different colors of thread. I could not rip out mistakes because it left terrible marks in the fabric so it was a one shot wonder. Kind a cool look, almost 3D. It was a fun way to practice FMQ, but the pebbles were a bit tiring, There is so much thread in this that it can stand up on its own.....
A friend and coworker of mine was recently diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumors- a pervasive type of cancer. He is 38 years old and he and his wife are parents to 5 year old triplets. My mother, our friend, Carol, and I created this quilt to be raffled off to raise money for JB and his family. I'm thrilled with how it turned out! The colors are amazing! The quilt is approximately 97x97.
I just picked my Batman quilt up from my friend who did a Fabulous job custom quilting it with Bat signal, Gotham City landscape, and comic book sayings, - Kapow, Bam, and zap. I bordered this Batman panel with the 5 inch version of MSQC Big Stars pattern. I origianlly bought this panel to make a quilt for my nephew, but I didn't get the quilt made before his favorite character changed to Spiderman. I made him a Spiderman quilt instead.
Made from a piece of M&Ms fabric and coordinated bright scraps, this quilt has been called my M&M Quilt from its beginning. The pattern is actually the Brave World Quilt from the book MORE NICKEL QUILTS, by Pat Speth. I used her pieced block pattern and her border (border shown in 2nd photo.) I decided to try quilting from the reverse side, following the wavy lines on the wild piece of fabric that I pulled from my stash for the backing (shown in picture three by my young granddaughter, who declared that she liked the back "the best".) Hmmm, not the first time I've heard that; maybe I should switch to plain backing fabric, LOL.
A breast cancer survivor requested a pink ribbon quilt. She wanted a big ribbon in the center. I added some light green for accent. I modified Jordan fabrics Ribbon pattern to include a pieced rectangle that I could applique a pink ribbon onto. This is what I came up with. 55 x 75"
This was my first panel quilt, and came as a kit. I made it for a friend of my sister in law who just had a baby. I did all the quilting myself, a combination of decorative stitches, straight line quilting, some ruler work and some free motion. I am still learning. The baby was a little quicker than the quilter, he's a month old!
Mom kept all of dad's ties after he passed away, intending to do something with them. Unfortunately, she passed away a year ago, so I grabbed the container of ties, and decided to do something with them. After finishing this quilt, I "auctioned" it between the siblings with the proceeds going to dad's favorite charity - SAT 7.
