Needed a new wall quilt for above our fireplace and used MSQC Bear Paws on Point Pattern. I liked the pieced border Jenny used on the MSQC Quilt, but decided for a smaller, 40" x 40" wall quilt, I thought it would be too much so I decided to use a flanged pieced border I learned how to make through Natalie's Final Stitch Video. The fabrics I used for the piecing are Maywood Studios Wollies Flannel Heritage and Wollies flannel Vol. 2 Colors both by Bonnie Sullivan; background fabric is Maywood Studios Flannel Brown and Black Weave; backing fabric is Kona Solids Black.
Made this quilt for one of my sisters using the Man Sewing Burst Block Template for 10" Squares and tutorial from MSQC. Had a jelly roll of Artisan Batiks in my stash that worked perfect for this quilt. Was to excited to give to my sister, I forgot to take pictures. There appears to be an unmade bed underneath the quilt...oh well.
This goes to my granddaughter who says it makes her feel happy when she looks at it, which is good cuz she has major depression. She loves it, it’s called Precious Stones from Big Book of Fat Quarter Quilts. I used 2.5 inch squares cut from charm packs and a white jelly roll plus some white yardage.
Last summer my younger daughter wanted a large tote, so she went through my fabrics and found these Island Batik strips. I wasn't sure what to do and for some reason the braid idea emerged. I even took a few scrap strips from the braids and sewed them into the handle of the bag. She used it a lot for going to the local pool. On the back I just sewed the strips up coin style. It turned out pretty good for no pattern!
This quilt is a for a friend with cancer. Hopefully she can wrap up in the bright colors and it will bring joy to her days. I did not buy one piece of fabric for it. I even used leftovers from other quilts for the backing. Sadly, I didn't make a dent in my stash.
I found this free pattern, "Radiance Bloom" by Robin Pickens along with her NEW Thatched basics prints from Moda Fabrics and fell in love with both of them! I used Edyta Sitar's "Olive Branch" fabric from her Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover Fabrics for the binding; Moda Cotton "Natural" for the background; and Cotton Canvas Painter Tarp for the backing.
I wanted to make something to hang in the glass in my front door to celebrate the arrival of Spring. After diving into my scraps, I found enough to make one piece 3 tulips wide and another piece two tulips wide (just to hang in a bedroom or something). Anyway, three wide was too wide for the door, so I ended up making a trio. Everything was cut from scraps except the background fabric and the binding.
This was a bear paw block I had made for my Wooley Bear Paw Wall Quilt, but decided not to use this color in it. So, instead, I am using it for one of my I Walked The Line Challenge blocks. This is No. 13 of 52 and did Radiating Lines (WALK by Jacquie Gering) or also called Bright Star (EXPLORE Walking Foot Quilting by Leah Day). I used MSQC Bear Paw of Point Quilt pattern (BLOCK Idea Book Vol 7, Issue 6, 2020, Page 14), only this single block is not on point! I also learned how to make flanged binding thanks to Natalie's MSQC Final Stitch Video. (My new love for binding, from now on! Thank You, Natalie!) Fabric: Woolies Flannel by Bonnie Sullivan Jelly Roll and 10" squares, and Woolies Flannel by Bonnie Sullivan Brown and Black Weave Flannel yardage was used for background and backing.
My daughter asked me to make a quilt for her boyfriend of three years. We looked for fabric together and she ended up selecting the "Wild at Heart" layer cake by Riley Blake. As it turned out, I had also picked up a layer cake of this fabric as a daily deal. He is very tall so we needed both layer cakes. This one is 80 x 101, the largest quilt I've made to date. After looking at the fabric I decided I didn't want to cut it up into small pieces. I remembered Jenny's Super Simple Squares. Jenny used charms but I used the layer cake. It was backed in snuggly Shannon black fabric. I really like how it turned out. Better yet, he loved it!
