So, back in the day, I purchased two of these kits. My fantacy was to have matching quilts in the kiddo's room and in our room. Alas, kiddo said he'd rather something different. No biggie. I went ahead and made both quilt tops with plans on returning to them at a later date to add borders etc etc. In a drawer they went. Plans changed... again. I completed one quilt for a raffle, and someone else fell in love with the other quilt. Therefore it is being made into a queen size quilt and shipped off as a gift. *sigh* Still need to make my bed a quilt.... LOL!!
This is a big beautiful quilt that I feel is masculine. Exactly what I was going for. I used almost 2 cake layers and a jelly roll and extra background fabric and yardage for border. It was fun and easy. Can’t wait to get it quilted. Going to put a orange and brown flannel on the back. I hope my brother loves it and knows how much he is loved.
Hello, I made an extra large size throw from mostly recycle jeans and items on hand. You may recognize the little scraps from my recent quilt posted here of my brother in law shirts in the narrow strips. The jeans are recycled except for the darkest color. That denim was given to me in a large roll. The backside are 2 small soft fleece throw blankets I pieced together, so it would be large enough. I tried to match the plaids, as best I could. It still made up 58x 79. I didn’t use any batting in between. It is heavy like a weighted quilt but it hugs around you well, because it’s not stiff. I am hoping some CASA teenage boy will love it. I don’t have the ‘right’ fabrics to make boy quilts so I thought this could be suitable for a guy. I need to ‘name’ it. A friend said the small scraps remind her of tiny flags so I should name it United. What does it remind you of? I try to keep busy because can’t get out. Our state in full of Covid and all hospitals are maxed out. I have to keep my mind positive and busy making for others. Hope you like my ‘throw’. Have a nice day-Toogie
This was a unfished project found in the cabinets of my quilting group. The squares cut and sashing's sewn. I just put it all together. I had some checkerboard material in black and white left from another project at home I used for the back. I sent it to Missouri Star for long arm quilting by their experts. Then I added red flange binding with the checkerboard material being the ribbing part. I added a sleeve to hang but also could be used on a table.
I won this jelly roll in a drawing and when I saw this pattern I knew it would be perfect for this precut. I pieced the backing with fabric I had on hand. It will be donated for a charity quilt auction for a local children's hospital.
I bought the pattern from Jenny. I quilted it using a pantograph on a long arm machine. I like the was the hummingbirds on the back look like they are flying through gusts of wind. I intend to gift it to a friend who just celebrated her 80th.
This is a pattern by Jordan fabrics. She did a tutorial in July using a jelly roll of Christmas fabrics. I used a jelly roll I had laying around with blue background fabric. Tried something different instead of the usual colors of white, black or gray. This is a pretty big quilt around 93 by 96. Mine is a little bigger than hers because I added borders. This quilt went to my sons apartment.
It really is pumpkins on cream fabric. This is a Cluck Cluck Sew pattern. I've made it on grey background and this is the second one on cream. Both are lovely, but the cream is more traditional. I'll probably make a few more of these because they are fun--but you'd better pay attention. I had a few dates with my seam ripper.
