When MSQC first offered the "Daisy and Grace" Quilt as You Go 2 1/2" Hexagon Template Set, I just had to buy myself the set. I watched their tutorial on making a quilt, table topper, and tree skirt, and I was hooked! Today, 7/3/2020, I did some hexi's with left over fabric from my Just can't Cut It quilt. It came together pretty quickly. Just wanted to share! Happy 4th of July everyone! *Update 7-19-20 Today, I finished my hexi project. I had just enough to make a topper for my tall dresser. First, I did a machine zig zag stitch to join the hexi's side by side, then I joined my five rows together. That was the challenging part. I love the finished product, but not sure if I would attempt a large quilt!
This is a pattern and kit called Burst from Quilt Addicts Anonymous by Stepahnie Soebbing. The pattern book- not cheap but SO well done in a block fo the month format- was easy to follow (when I decided to finally pay attention). I love the result and it went together really quickly.
I quilted this "Spice Rack" quilt pattern with an elephants, giraffe, and lion quilting pattern for my friend. It has navy Cuddle Luxe (soft fake fur) as the backing. This is the third quilt that I quilted on my longarm and first time quilting with a cuddle backing.
At first, I didn't want to make anything that would remind me of this terrible time, until I thought of these verses I had in yardage. This throw got it's name, because of all my prayers, while working on it.I quilted quarter inch away from the frame strips and in the ditch of strips dividing the verses. It's a throw size 60 x 72 inches. I do have some waves going on that I don't like, but since it's a personal throw, not meant for judging, I can live with it. I may could have taken some of that out if I had hand stitched the binding, but when I am wrapped up, who knows.-lol
This was my 2020 Covid 19 Quilt. I designed the pattern and put it together during March/April isolation. With the stores closed I was at the mercy of what was in my fabric stash. I has a lot of fun with it, making adjustments on each block. No two are exactly the same.
My husband asked me to make a table topper for a small table we purchased at a sale. I had a couple of free charm packs I’d received with a previous fabric order and decided they would fit the bill—and who doesn’t love stars! I lost a few of my points on a couple of the stars : ( but I think it’s a happy-looking little table topper regardless. I quilted it with wavy lines. My husband liked it : )
This was our last club mystery quilt. I can't remember the name of it. But, my goal was to complete this quilt without buying anything! Okay, you know how that goes. I did end up having to purchase fabric for the backing and a bit more for the last floral border. The friend I'm helping learn to quilt took one look at this quilt and bought it for her sister who is a PURPLE lover. I hear it was a big hit and went instantly onto her bed.
My oldest grand daughter text me a picture of a quilt on Pinterest using this panel. I bought some yardage and tried to make this quilt similar to the photo. She was thrilled when I gave it to her, for her 20th birthday. This was my first time ruler quilting.Last photo shows the backing and her pillowcase I made to match.
