This is my 34th quilt . This one counts as a quilt pattern on my bucket list. I've wanted to do a Triple Irish Chain quilt since I started quilting in 2014. This particular TIC pattern is "Georgene" by Edyta Sitar in 'Patches of Scraps', a book I borrowed from the library. The prints are a variety of Cotton Lawn fabrics and the background fabric is Cotton Couture. It was a challenge making 3" square 9-patches using 1.5" squares of cotton lawn fabric. I started cutting and piecing in June 2019, and finished the binding in December 2019. It's 83.5" square, with a premium white muslin backside, and a cotton/poly batt. Lyn Durbin at Camlyn Quilting in Smokey Point, Washington, did the free-motion meander long-arm quilting. I also made 2 pillowcases using a premium muslin for the bodies and scraps for the cuffs. It was gifted to my son and DIL in California for Christmas 2019. The 2 grandkids each have 4 quilts from me, so it was their parents' turn. I do love quilting though, so they will no doubt get at least one more big one from me. Posted by Peggy at Bothtwins on August 14, 2020.
I made this because I love beautiful yellows, but they are hard to find. When I finished the lap sized quilt, I shared a picture with my sister who reminded me that HER bedroom was yellow. So I made another set of blocks to increase this to a queen sized quilt. It will be her Christmas gift this year.
I made this Quilt of Valor for a Vietnam veteran. He was 18 years old when he enlisted In 1965 and 6 weeks later he was in Vietnam. He was awarded the Purple Heart. He is a patriot who served his country in wartime. The pattern is from the book, “Quilts of Valor, A 50 State Salute”. “The quilt was awarded 9-15-2020. I used all fabric by the yard. MSQC machine quilted the quilt.
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.
