Okay, this got a little crazy. Using the Tri-Rec Ruler, I got busy making trees. It finished at 44 x 48. I added the dotted border to "tame" it a bit. First time using this ruler and was glad to see I didn't lose any points. I think this is going to a child I have in mind.
I bought the florographix online to make a quilt for my stepson(23). When I received it I realised there was way to much pink in it for a man but I didn’t want to waste it. I started sewing using the stars & stitches pattern. As I put it together I realised how cool it was looking & started seeing my youngest daughter (27) with it. Just waiting for lockdown to end so I can organise a long arm quilter.. I think this needs something special not just straight lines from my machine :)
I saw this pattern a while ago and loved it but thought it was complicated to do. When I pulled out the pattern and read the directions I realized it was only a disappearing 9 patch done on point with white fabric. I had been collecting some Kaffe Fassett fabric and decided this was the perfect way to use it. So that fabric became the focus of each block with coordinating other fabric from my stash to make the blocks. I used a white on white fabric between the colored blocks. I used fabric of Kaffe Fassett for the back. A local LAQ did the quilt pattern. I used multi-colored binding to finish it off. I love how it came out. A very happy quilt.
I made this scrappy Dresden Quilt for my daughter's guest bedroom in her new house. I quilted it with Wasatch Design "Bubbly Flowers", and used Omni Buff thread and Hobb's Tuscany Collection Supreme 100% unbleached cotton batting. I used 1.5" strips for the sashing and 9 patch corner stones. 96" x 96"
Recently, my first grader granddaughter and her mother (my daughter) asked me if I could make a new quilt from a well-loved dinosaur quilt that was store-bought fourteen years ago when her brother was 2 years old. The center panel of the quilt was split in two, the edges of the quilt were frayed off, and the batting looked like Swiss cheese. All I could rescue were the thin, mostly faded border pieces of the original quilt. I interfaced the pieces and added pinks and greens from my stash to put together a brighter setting with more girl-appeal. The middle child will be sharing the quilt with her newborn baby sister, pictured on the quilt.
