Last year we lost a darling 8 year old. I let his Mom, my niece, know that when she was ready I would be happy to make her a quilt from his clothes or whatevers. This spring she let me know that the next time I was in town she would like to discuss a project. She asked me to make her three, one each for the grandparents and one for her and her husband using t-shirts she had saved since her son was a very little guy. This is the quilt for her Mom using the t-shirts they brought him from Mexico. Quilting is the result of searching Mexican art. I switched better my long arm and domestic; sewing the extremely long in the ditch and echos on my domestic to eliminate the stress of getting those straight.
This is a quilt I made using Jenny’s crumb method and 3 Navy pillow panels. The method is found here Triple Play: 3 New Crumb Piecing Quilts with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star (Video Tutorial) on YouTube. I tried posting the link and it didn’t work. I made another crumb quilt earlier and stripped it with the Star sashing. It’s in my profile here. I think these scraps or crumbs look wonderful, don’t you? Thanks Jenny!
I made this Senna pattern quilt during a quilt along by the pattern designer, Alexandra Bordallo (@alextilalila). I made this quilt for my cousin. I quilted it with My Creative Stitches Fiddlesticks design. I added another row and two borders. 72" x 95"
8-23-22, I picked up this quilt from my local quilt shop. The quilting came out beautiful. It has hearts, flowers, and loops. Can’t wait to give this to my Granddaughter! For my first Granddaughter’s fifth birthday (August 2021) I gave her a full size quilt. In the past, I have only made her baby size quilts. This quilt…I just finished piecing, I will be giving it to my second Granddaughter for her fifth birthday in November, 2022. This too, will be her first full size quilt. As the title states, the fabric collection is, “One Fine Day, by Bonnie and Camille”. My Granddaughter loves the Disappearing Nine Patch, and she loves red.
Made this large throw for a guy who had gifted me a drawing of a mansion near where I grew up. A simple thank you was not enough. The pattern is Simply Serene by Annies Catalog. I used mostly 2 Moda Charm Packs (Astra and Decorum- basic grey) but supplemented it with some fabric from my stash. The dark blue and other various shades for the triangles and borders were shades of Moda Grunge. The back is flannel. It was quilted by our local long arm quilter.
I made this quilt for my great room using a couple of layer cakes, matching charm pack and one of those "Cake Mix" paper patterns and quilted it on my Q'nique. I'm pretty happy with the result but don't think I'll mess with the paper cake mixes again...seems like more trouble than it's worth.
I made this quilt for my grandson, Max, who was born 7-7-21. The quilt pattern is from Elizabeth Hartman quilt collection. I used all fabric by the yard to make the puppies. The quilt pattern is puppy dog paws. It was quite a sewing adventure for me, but I loved how it turned out.
I've made many quilts for my daughter and her family but never a Christmas quilt. I used this very simple pattern to show off this adorable fabric, 'All about Christmas', Riley Blake. I plan to give it to her for her birthday in October so that she can use it this Christmas.
AUDIOADI wanted me to repost this quilt top, once it was quilted and I totally forgot, until I was looking back at my post. Here is is, just free motion meander or stipple. Showing the backside too. Holding up to the light, the top design shows through, but not when it’s on the bed. I hope you see this Audioadi!
This is a bedspread that I have created from reproduction 30's and 40's fabric. I have used the Missouri Star pattern that is called Cross Your Heart. I needed a bed spread that would compliment the 1940's style room that it was going in. It was a fun and easy pattern to follow and I love how it turned out.
I’ve had “The Birds of Liberty” fabric in the 2.5” squares for some time now. Not enough to make a significant size table topper, so I made my daughter two small toppers for her bedroom side tables. She loves them, and wants a quilt to match! Lol Probably not a chance, since this line is oop…but I’ll keep searching!
My son has been rooming with the same guys through 3 years of collage and then 2 years a grad. School. So the last 2 guys got jobs and will be leaving the area. I made this quilt for one of them. The other roommate took one from their apartment that I made. The quilt is 72 by 89. And I used a layer cake. The layer cake was Secret Stash Cool Tones 10" Squares Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover Fabrics.
I picked up this quilt kit last fall hoping to have it done for my daughter for Christmas but of course life got in the way. So I decided it would make a great birthday present. Once I got the main pieces put together, I didn’t like the fabric that they used for in between the roses so I checked around and found something I liked better, and replaced all the in between pieces, then of course I had to find a different border fabric and a different out border to finish it. By the time I got it all put back together I had to have surgery done on my left shoulder and couldn’t do a lot of sewing or ironing. So although my regular quilter would have done the quilting for me I knew she was very busy and didn’t want to add any extra pressure on her so I contacted Missouri Star and then said they would do it and get it back to me in time for my daughter’s birthday. I received it back last week and got the bindings done and finished putting it on this afternoon. Thank you very much Missouri Star for all your help.
