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.
This is out of It's Sew Emma BOOKS, Charming Baby Quilts By Melissa Corry. I think it measures ~ 52 x 52 I think. In the book it is multi-colored, but I thought I would stick to 2 colors. I free motioned quilted this. This is the most densely quilted I have ever done a quilt. It took forever and in the end it feels more stiff than I would really want in a cuddly baby quilt. All in all, it was a great experience and excellent practice.
This is No. 8 of my walking-foot challenge. After struggling with my HST quilt, I decided I needed something fun to make. . . and these were very fun to make! First I straight lined stitched the background, then appliqued the wonky boxes and then I just wonky stitched at random the individual boxes themselves.
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 quilted this tulip tabletop following one of Missouri Star Triple Play Quilt Tutorials dated 4/18/2020. I used Kaffe Fassett prints and my scrap tub of orphan 5" squares. I also continued with 2 1/2" border of 5" squares. I quilted with Edge to Edge flower motif., then embroidered a spool and needle on one of the runners. It was so much fun, that I made a second one for my daughter who lives near Seattle. She was delighted to have it as springtime comes a bit earlier there and just in time for the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley.
Decided to make a small version on my Tulip Time Table Runner. This one measures 26" x 10.5". I again used MSQC Tulip Fields Pattern only this time I used 2.5" squares instead 5" squares which I used in my larger table runner. Fabric: Grunge Basic Grey for Tulips, Shadow Play by Maywood Studio for leaves and binding, Robert Kaufman Kona Quilt Cotton in Natural for background and 8oz Cotton Natural color canvas painters tarp for backing.
A handsome baby boy tumbler quilt for a friend of my husband. I used two packages of "Pinewood Acres" by Penny Rose for Riley Blake Designs, and cordinates for the two borders. I found a matching flannel at a local quilt shop for the back. I also used Missouri Stars 5" tumbler template to cut the tumbler blocks. Getting the blocks to align properly when sewing them together is a little frustrating, there is another template out there that has a little notch in the bottom corner to help align the tumblers, that might work better. I echoed stitched about half an inch away from all seams. I just love how this quilt turned out and I found a matching bear stuff animal!
I purchased these fabric ends from a quilt shop that opened a few years ago. I had also purchased the "Mini Twister" and wanted to try it out...and this is the result (I did use some vanilla 5" charms for the border). Again, this was pieced in Nov 2019, but quilted and bound today (Apr 2021). I did put rod pockets on the back so that it could also be used as a wall hanging or something different to hang in the window of my front door. I'm starting to feel better about cleaning up the UFOs.
