I watched the You Tube video and loved the colors and design. Good Morning –Imagine my delight and surprise when I got the latest issue of BLOCK. On page 80 in the photo is a chair that is exactly the same as the chairs for my mother’s dining room set (that I now have). I remember well dusting those chairs every Saturday morning! I have attached a picture of the chair as well as a photo of the Winter Stars quilt that I completed. Loved watching the tutorial on You Tube and watch your tutorials when I spend time in my sewing room (which is a lot during the pandemic). Thank you so much for your wonderful tutorials and all the expertise you share with us! I learn something new every time I watch you on You Tube! Looking forward to the re-opening of the shops…loved our trip to Hamilton 3 years ago! Road trip coming up for my sisters and friends! All the best, Diana Thomas
I had made a table runner using pieces of this jelly roll, but I didn't like it, so I used some more pieces of it and made this one in Nov 2019. This was while I still lived in Gainesville FL. So - I got caught up in the move and this project took a back seat. I finished quilting it Mar 30 2021 and did the binding today (Mar 31 2021). Now I have to mail it back to Gainesville as it is a gift!
I just finished adding extra borders to my Laundry Basket Quilts Alaskan Holiday quilt top. I wanted a bed size quilt. I love the diamond border. I pieced this top during the Quilt Along that happened in December. The extra borders start with the pink one. it's 113.5" square. I took pictures outside today
A cheerful spring table runner for my mother. I used Missouri Star's 5 inch tumbler template to cut out the tumblers and the flower blocks came out of a book I have called Block Magic by Nancy Johnson-Srebro. I wanted to test out my tumbler block skills for an up coming baby quilt so I designed this pattern in my head. I think it would look adorable as a lap quilt with those flowers as a border going all the way around! I used two charm packs called "Butterfly Garden" for the tumblers and flowers.
These beautiful table runners were made for my sister-in-laws, in their favorite holiday colors. One loves christmas, so I used "Winters Grandeur", and the other loves halloween so I used "All Hallows Eve." I made an orange peel template to fit the finished squares and traced it on for my quilting lines. This adorable pattern is from the good folks at Jordans Fabrics, it is a free pattern and they have a youtube video about it. I ended up making a third one in traditional red, green, and gold fabrics for my parents! It is quick and fun!!
After watching Jenny's Make a Christmas Table Runner Using the Large Wedge Tool, I was inspired to make some as Christmas gifts for family in 2020. They were very well received and I enjoyed thinking about each family as I made them. I made seven total and when my husband asked which one was ours, I realized that I didn't make us one.
I was playing around with a nine-patch madness pattern using jelly roll strips (instead of the 5" squares the pattern called for). Not my best work, but I learned something. Long story short, I think this may be used as a gift for my first attendance at a guild meeting since I've moved. (Not sure because I do not know if you have to be a certain type of quilter to join this guild.) Anyway - I used double batting to make it thicker and simply sewed the right sides together, then turned it and sewed the edging (I really did not want to open a new jelly roll to bind it). Note: Final size, 10" x 10".
Another pieced table runner created in Oct 2019 (which is the first month I started quilting). This was made for a friend who asked for a Thanksgiving table runner - of course, she never stated which Thanksgiving! Now that I've made the 1000+ mile move and I am finally getting things squared away, I have found several UFOs that need attention. This one only needed to be bound - and I finished that 23 March 2021. (At least it will be in time for this Thanksgiving...right?)
