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.
Saw this pattern and thought it would be a great Sew From Home project for our sewing group. It is to be a stash project; the biggest piece is the background. I used all my leftover chunks of WOW fabrics. They really do look great together. I have written up the pattern and as people finish a step on Saturday I will email them the next step. Really saw it in my Mind's Eye with a scalloped edge. My first! Very scary cutting into all that quilting, Pattern is available; see my profile for contact information.
Saw this recently and thought it would be pretty in my leftover burgundy's and a dusty blue I had. At first was thinking of just randomizing the colors. That did not work for my eye; just felt to jumbled. Wanted to try the curl hook with feathers quilting design and then some paisley thrown in in the cream backgrounds. The stars were a bit harder. Nothing I drew worked so I ended up just shadowing the shape along the two inside edges.
After a good friend made a ballet quilt for her granddaughter, she was generous to give me her leftover fabric for my own aspiring ballet granddaughter. It was more than enough to fashion another quilt plus a couple of pillowcases and a dress for a doll. Assorted prints from “At the Ballet” designed by Benartex Studios—gray, pink, black, white color pallet. Fabrics from City Ballet by Kanvas Studio.
Last summer my younger daughter wanted a large tote, so she went through my fabrics and found these Island Batik strips. I wasn't sure what to do and for some reason the braid idea emerged. I even took a few scrap strips from the braids and sewed them into the handle of the bag. She used it a lot for going to the local pool. On the back I just sewed the strips up coin style. It turned out pretty good for no pattern!
I quilted this tulip tabletop following one of Missouri Star Triple Play Quilt Tutorials dated 4/18/2020. I used Kaffe Fassett prints and my scrap tub of orphan 5" squares. I also continued with 2 1/2" border of 5" squares. I quilted with Edge to Edge flower motif., then embroidered a spool and needle on one of the runners. It was so much fun, that I made a second one for my daughter who lives near Seattle. She was delighted to have it as springtime comes a bit earlier there and just in time for the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley.
I wanted to make two of the same quilt from the same jelly roll. I got the first one made and I just love it. So I was really excited to make the second one. That is when the happy accident happened. I turned one of the half square triangles. That created a different block around the pinwheel that forms where the blocks come together. I had most of the blocks together when I saw it so I decided to just leave it. So I have Antique Lace and Antique Lace 2
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.
This was commissioned as a memory quilt for a 7yr old boy. Many of the fabrics are from his old clothes. His name is Coen and he and his family are currently sailing the world. The flags on the top two rows spell out his name and year of birth using the nautical alphabet.
