This quilt is loosely based on the good fortune quilt. I used the blue and grey HST left over corners to make circle of friends blocks and then inserted them with coping stirps. Added 9 patches to the sashing. I still have some of the layer cake left so decorative pillows will be added. The quilting is again inspired by Angela Walters. This is for the guest room full size bed, just in time for Easter,
Quilt #22 Blue and Red Stars, a kit from Connecting Threads. The original pattern was all blue, but I wanted to make it patriotic for a Veteran donation gift, so I grabbed reds from my stash, and my sisters' stash, and wa-la, way more interesting. It's throw size, 58"X68", white muslin backing, 80/20 Hobbs batt and large meander quilting by Lyn at Camlyn Quilts. The Salmon for Soldiers event was scheduled for September but was cancelled for 2020. I will donate it to them next year, hopefully the Covid will be over by then. Posted 022421
My daughter wanted a heavy denim quilt. She helped to use the Accuquilt to cut the circles and she also cut the flannel squares. I sewed it together. While I'm glad we did it, it will be a while before I want to do another. Very heavy to get through the sewing machine.
This quilt is a for a friend with cancer. Hopefully she can wrap up in the bright colors and it will bring joy to her days. I did not buy one piece of fabric for it. I even used leftovers from other quilts for the backing. Sadly, I didn't make a dent in my stash.
I quilted three designs (Chandelier from Wasatch quilting, (Nemesh's Feathers Grande and Marmalade from Urban Elementz)) just for fun on this double cuddle luxe quilt for my daughter. I used Snowy Owl Mallard for top and Mallard for backing. I used Omni Fountain Mist thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting. 57" x 90" 02/23/2021
I have been dabbling in multiple projects (again). This week, I decided to make a couple of floor pillows for a toddler, inspired by a posting I had saved on Pinterest (search, "Toddler Floor Pillows"). I used 2-inch by 16-inch high-density foam inserts, and built my covers around those. I wanted them to be very durable, so I interfaced my pre-washed quilting cotton pieces, double-stitched all seams, and finished the seam raw edges with a two-step zigzag. I used a heavy-duty purse zipper for each cover, as well as woven belting fora carry strap. The second photo is in black and white so that the fabric details show up better. These will be shipped to the Little, in short order.
This is my youngest daughters quilt. She loves teals, purples and stars. I can't remember the name of the fabric, but I got the quilt pattern from Jordan Fabrics, it's one of their free patterns. It turned out to be a good twin size quilt. I echoed stitched along the seams for easy quilting.
