When I started this quilt I had a different layout in mind. After playing around with the blocks, I chose this design. The quilt is made from a 1/2 of a donated layer cake. The triangles are 4" and the sashing is 1 1/2" wide and the blocks are set on point. I hope a child likes it!
I asked my niece what color quilt she wanted. I was surprised when she said black and white. I wasn’t excited about doing a black and white quilt, but finally decided on pattern and material and I LOVE how it turned out. I have made a quilt for all my nieces and this is the last one.
My eldest grandson graduated this spring and I wanted to make him a quilt. I was looking for a more masculine pattern and thought of Man Sewing's Burst Block. He races pickup trucks (or did pre-COVID) and his truck is orange and black. Once I ordered the fabric I though it would look great in the Burst Block pattern. It's not perfect but I love how it turned out. He loves it, which is even better.
I just finished piecing this GE Designs "Taylor" pattern memory quilt. This is the third quilt that I have made using ties from my friend that passed away in September 2019. This quilt is for my son. Eleven ties were used in this quilt along with MODA "Home" fabric by Kathy Schmitz and Kona Snow. 90" x 100" posted 7/27/2020
My daughter decided she wanted to giver her good friend a quilt for their wedding ... in 3 weeks! So we went shopping in my stash. She selected on of my favorite layer cakes, "Sunset Blooms 10 Karat Crystals" by Wilmington. I had picked it up as a Daily Deal from MSQ back in June 2018. We were lucky enough to find fabric for the border and backing from the line (which surprised me). Since the wedding was 3 weeks off I decided to go with Jenny's Building Block tutorial. It came together quickly and my favorite local quilter squeezed me in with a darling sunflower quilting pattern. People who say it at the quilt shop asked it if was for sale - I've never sold a quilt so was very flattered. Long story short, I finished sewing on the custom label and binding two days before she had to leave for the wedding. Phew! I love how it turned out. The beautiful, colorful fabric really made this quilt pop.
Update: 8th quilt I quilted on my longarm. Quilted with Urban Elementz "Marmalade" pattern and hand bound. - I started piecing this (mostly batik) blue and yellow GE Designs "Nova" pattern quilt when I found out that my friend's 20 year old daughter has stomach cancer. She is having surgery today. Her favorite colors are sky blue and yellow. I'll quilt it on Wednesday after the tropical storm passes. 68" x 82" posted 8/3/2020
My daughter loves lemons and wanted a "lemon quilt". She selected "Splash of Lemon" by Timeless Treasures and the pattern of PopStar from Missouri Quilt Company with backing from Kanvas-Lemon Fresh. We modified the pattern by adding additional border material around each block. It is my first queen-sized quilt. I know there are a ton of mistakes, but I am learning!
