This is for my grandson who will be 9 in January. He is a big Star Wars fan. I backed it with minky. Normally I do my own quilting (just straight lines) but wanted something special for this. So I had it quilted and love the design. Plus I wasn't crazy about working with the minky :) I hope he likes it.
My husband still loves to skateboard (at 49!) and after I watched Jenny and Rob make a skateboard quilt I just had to try. Finding more "boyish" fabrics was not as easy I thought it would be. I happened upon the "summer of love" panel at the thrift store and bordered it with the old cars fabric because he is a hot wheels collector. Lots of errors in it (only my second quilt) but he loves it so that is what matters.
I made this pink and gray Jordan Fabrics Ribbons pattern quilt top for a best friend of one of my friends, who is fighting breast cancer. She requested a pink and gray quilt (her high school colors). I made my quilt (69 x 74") bigger than the pattern (50 x 60") since I was not using a layer cake. My husband says I'm in my big quilt phase as I usually make as least queen size. :-) I changed the border a little as I have my squares offfset by half a square, instead of a full square.
We found out this year while decorating that our Christmas wreath did not fit properly on our front door. I decided to take the left over fabric from my tree skirt, my double wide dresden ruler, and made one myself. The bow was made using Rob Appell’s bow tie tutorial on YouTube.
It's a Hearty Gift for the front door. I couldn't resist, sorry. A free paper pieced pattern on Pintrest, Heart Gift. The fabrics are from a fat quarter pack I picked up last year. A stash buster, There are no measurements on the pattern, so since I was doing more than one heart, I measured and made a list to make the process easier.
I purchased some fat quarters to make pot holders with, but they changed my mind and said, no...we want to be in a quilt. I didn't have quite enough, so had to purchase some fabric by the yard for that side, and also for the back side. I used plain white for the shasing on one side and all red for the other. A simply wavy quilted line completes this top. Flannel in the middle.
