I used fabric from my stash and a side kick ruler for this quilt. I experimented with triangles and diamond shapes. One of my favorite parts of quilting is designing the project. I design as I go using a design wall. There are a lot of y seams in this piece, I learned it is important to back stitch the partial seam so is does not separate when quilting. I also learned that heavy quilting covers a multitude of piecing imperfections........
I recently got back into sewing and am in the process of making quilts for my family. This one is for my daughter-in-law, Ashtyn. I saw the pattern on a magazine and recreated it using colors from her wedding and glittery fabrics since she's a glitter girl. She is also a pokemon fan and there is a square devoted to searching for a pokemon.
This is a college graduation gift for my nephew who plans to join the Air Force. I’m very proud. Orange is his favorite color. Once again I give so much credit and thanks to Mary Ann, my LAQ. The fabric is Color Master by Art Gallery Fabrics, the Tangerine Summer Edition.
I just finished this quilt top for my friend/neighbor's daughter for high school graduation. I used blue, purple, and green fabric (her favorite colors). I used fabric scraps to make a string border. 80 x 96" I'm going to quilt it with my friend's help on her longarm tomorrow.
