This is the second time I've made this pattern. This time I chose all blues/aquas. This is going to be perfect for a baby due in August whose mommy and daddy are not revealing gender. It is 54" x 54"--large enough for tummy time, tent-making and story time snuggles.
I recently got back into sewing and am in the process of making quilts for my family. This one is for my daughter-in-law, Ashtyn. I saw the pattern on a magazine and recreated it using colors from her wedding and glittery fabrics since she's a glitter girl. She is also a pokemon fan and there is a square devoted to searching for a pokemon.
Saw this cute Free Pattern from Moda. I use 1930’s fabrics from my stash and added the light gray dots for border and a pink ‘30’s for binding with a light pink Minky on the back. I used a simple all over daisy quilting pattern with a light pink thread. This quilt too is for one of the young Moms at church. This was a fun, quick, and easy quilt pattern. Will have to make more.
HSTs cut on my AccuQuilt from scraps and a few purchased FQs. I decided on a feature block pattern by moving the HSTs around and quickly decided I wasn’t patient enough to make all the blocks so detailed. So, 4 patches were added in between to get the quilt to a desired size. Machine embroidered a name and gifted to baby Miller at a fun family event.
My brother-in-law requested this pattern quilt while watching me viewing a Jenny Dolan Y-tube. He requested I sew it on his grandmother's Singer treadle. It was most difficult item for me as cutting and even seams are not my best thing and this is a must for this pattern. Longarm professional Karen Marchetti did the quilting and made the blocks pop for sure.
I picked this pattern by Southwind Designs to make a quilt for my brother and sister in law. The look of it seemed to fit their San Antonio home. I bought the background fabric, but pulled the rest from my stash, building up from the maroon flower centers. I cut out the pieces one weekend, and put them together the following weekend. The overall effect was truly gorgeous. They were both very happy with the quilt.
For about three years I collected fabric license plates from fabric stores from all 50 states. Some of the states are represented by more than one license plate with a total of 68 plates in this quilt. I collected license plates from some states while traveling, some were given to me by friends and some I had sent to me from fabric stores in states I didn't visit. Each fabric license plate has its own cute title from the state it represents.
