My sister recently picked up a bag of 3" squares and the start of a scrappy quilt from our local 'op shop'. Her thinking was Wow, Lynda could finish that :) It was a bit of a mess, but hey, we all have to start with a scrap of fabric & kind of a plan. With it's irregular 1/4" seams it took a bit to get this one to take a regular form and finally I was happy with it enough to sandwich it & quilt in the ditch. The end result is not too bad.
I bought this beautiful Lonestar quilt top off of Etsy years ago. I love the colors. It was 61" square. I added extra borders to make it 73" x 79". I quilted it with a Wasatch Design called "Sherbert" and used Omni Blue Ice thread and Hobb's 80/20 batting. I hand bound it. This quilt will be a gift for my daughter's friend.
I made this wall hanging quilt a couple of years ago and recently entered it into our local Arts and Crafts show and please to say that Kandy was awarded 2nd prize I thought I could just edit my item on this page but somehow I lost the whole thing. Obviously I'm better at quilting that technology.
This was my first shop hop, I visited each shop, purchased the block, and then chose the finishing kit for the one I liked most. That was November 2016. I started in 2017, worked on it mostly at retreats and finally finished this 95 x 95 Queen size quilt, the largest I have made. Not bad for 4 1/2 years! My longarmer did a beautiful job with a panto called Tea Rose.
I wanted to try making these blocks or boxes, so I looked at images to see what was out there. I saw the boxes stacked like these and then other quilts had them ‘floating’. I like both ways, so I made up this baby quilt using both ideas. It measures 39x49 after quilting. I stitched in the ditch around the boxes or blocks and stippling in the background. I also pieces my binding to add a little color around the outer edge. I used the Rhombus Ruler from Missouri Star, not sure if it’s the smallest RR but I think my strips were about 3 1/2 inches.

This Navy panel was passed on to me as I love working with panels. I found just enough navy emblem, scrap fabric in a scrap bin, to fuzzy cut my Star center. Hubby didn’t like just the black gold and blue, so I added the flag fabric to frame the panel and again in outer border, to give a little more color. I’m not overly thrilled with the look but I hope the vet that gets it is. Size is a little larger than my regular 60x80- this is 68x86 -Have a nice night-Toogie To learn more about Quilts of Valor go to www.QOVF.org
My daughter moved to another state this past summer. It will be her first Christmas by herself this year. I made this tree skirt for her in her favorite color blue. I used June Taylor quilt as you go batting and Shabby Fabrics Bargello Tree Skirt pattern. The pattern was written for their kit, as I used my own fabrics, I had to number their fabrics and number their pictures for the 16 strip sets. I put it on a slightly bigger backing so that I can quilt snowflakes on my longarm. I quilted digital design "Jessica's Snowflakes" and hand bound. The pattern makes a 40" tree skirt.
A fun applique pattern that I came across in a magazine & had such fun making. It resonates with me as I grew up on a farm with so many of the pictures being a part of my life. As the saying goes "ya can take the girl out of the farm, but ya can't take the farm out of the girl." This is me to a tee!!
I finished my Stitchin Heaven - Journeys quilt top - a 12 month - block of the month (BOM), with Studio 180 designs, beautiful fabrics by Jason Yenter In the Beginning Fabrics, and a wonderful Novella by Marie Bostwick. I had so much fun sewing this top. This is the second quilt top that a friend and I sewed together thru video chat (we live in different states). I plan to quilt feathers on it. 102" square
