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.
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.
A friend of mine lost her father in law and asked me to make a memory quilt for his wife;her mother in law. She gave me a pile of his clothes, all jeans and flannel shirts. She also gave me the shirt and dress each had worn at her wedding(used for the center heart). I used Tonga Treats Batiks Freedom minis to supplement them. He was a veteran so it was a perfect fit! I used Shadow Play yardage in natural for the boarders. Tonga Batiks Freedom blue stars for the backing. I asked my friend if he had a favorite flower as I love to add appliqué to my quilts whenever possible. He loved trillium. I created my own trillium appliqués. Of course the best part of any project is getting to see the recipient’s reaction. I was fortunate enough to have friend send me a video of her mother in law opening the quilt. Makes all the hard work worth it
