When our daughter (almost 50) said she wanted to make a quilt with some Christmas fabrics she bought long ago, I suggested Jenny’s Double Slice. As her first quilt top ever I thought this wouldn’t be too stressful for her, because the only seams that need to match were the block seams, when joining the rows. I am so proud of her! I quilted and put the binding on and now waiting for her to see. I am always unsure of thread color. I didn’t have a bright red, so I had to use a maroon color. I think it is ok and when it’s washed, the stitches will sink more. It came out 55x72 inches after quilting. Oh, I also told daughter that her outer border looks like lace!-lol There is a YouTube video but it won’t let me add the link here so https://youtu.be/jxC-0T5lXw4 Type in Double Slice quilt tutorial by Missouri Star and it should come up on YouTube search.
The title says it all, however, I did not use a charm pack, but used my leftover 5 inch squares I cut myself. I had to cut my little squares for my 9P at 2 1/8 inch, an odd size I know, but it gave me the size I needed to trim to 5 inch sq. I don’t use a quarter inch foot. I use my regular foot so it takes more than 1/4 in seam allowance. Anyway, I got got home from a family vacation so I needed to sew! -lol This ended up 70 x 89 inch and will probably go to a women shelter. Thanks for looking- Toogie
I have been seeing a lot of clear vinyl project bag tutorials on YouTube lately, so I decided to make one for my cross stitch supplies. The inside liner and backing was quilted in a cross hatch pattern. The liner is from the “Good Life” collection by Bonnie and Camille. The borders and the backing are from the “Shine On” collection, by the same designers. My project bag finished at 16” x 18’, so its a great size.
I made this thread catcher from a pattern out of The Quilt Bee book from Bonnie and Camille. It’s holds all my frequently used notions. The floral fabric is from the At Home collection. The navy pin dots is Dwell, and the aqua polka dots is Riley Blake.
I had this military fabric and found a free pattern from Maywood Studio and thought I’d try it. It’s called Settee Throw. I didn’t use the templates or ruler they suggested, just their idea. Mine measures 62x80. It will go to a veteran when quilted. https://d1nvdmt0osh3cv.cloudfront.net/media/stash-item/file/s/e/settee_pattern_roses_on_the_vine_sm.pdf
I was making these bird blocks the weekend that a local boy had a bicycle accident and sadly passed away at the scene where he fell off his bike. When my husband came home & told me what had happened I knew right then that I would make these beautiful blocks into a quilt in memory of little Dylan. I recently finished the quilt & took it to the family. I added a rod pocket so they have an option of hanging it on a wall. I know they realise the impact that Dylans death has had on many people in our small but connected town. God bless Dylan & his beautiful family. Ride high on your bicycle sweet darling child.
I made this for a great-niece, whose mom was adopted from Korea and her dad is Korean and they live in the US. So Trip Around the World is an appropriate pattern for her quilt! I quilted hearts in some of the plain squares to show she's surrounded by love. After I bought the animal fabric, my artist son chose most of the coordinating fabrics. Hand stitched and hand quilted, 63" square.
This interlocking pattern looks like the start of a foot race. All the different teams bunched together, taking off at the same time. Just a thought. 72” x 78” The black is too stark, bold. It overshadows the blue and tan. I had a lot of trouble getting intersections to line up nicely.
