Since I have made all three of my children a pinwheel quilt, I just had to make one more for my husband. This is Kansas Troubles "On Meadowlark Pond". I just finished piecing the body of the quilt, but still need to do the 2.5" inner border, and the 5.5" outer border, and the quilting. During the day, while my husband is at work, I have been working on this. Just before he comes home, I tuck it away in my sewing room, so he doesn't see it! I made him one a few years back in Kansas Troubles Favorites, so I know he will like this color scheme.
This was created by "the seat of my pant" for a dear friend who was going through cancer. She chose the colors and I came up with this pattern. A photo from old computer, so it's a bit grainy Forgot to mention, she has passed away. Yes, she truly loved this quilt and it was with her always.
This baby quilt is made from leftovers from 3 other quilts. Later Alligator, by Sandy Gervais, Windham Basic Brights, and Hooray by Patrick Lose. I made one that was all Later Alligator, and just finished the second one that still needs quilting. This turned out well and is bright to intrigue an infant or toddler. I backed it with a blue minky and used a blue thread in case some minky might pull through. I'm making two burp cloths with some left over flannel and matching fabric. The pattern is by Amy Smart, one of her 3 free star pattern off her blog.
Mother of bride came up with the colors and arrangement. This was for her son. I did all the cutting, sewing and quilting. A bit grainy, photo from old computer. This isn't the best picture, but all I have. The background is white and is quilted with white thread. I took a picture of it with my camera phone from the computer screen and this is how it turned out, sorry guys. I will never see this again.
Saw these checker pumpkins in a craft store and thought I can make these. So found a how to on the web and did them. I put some potpourri in them pumpkin spice sort. Make 6 of them. Sold a few at today's church sale but others may just come home with me if they don't go tomorrow. Happy Halloween.
My niece loves cats so I decided to use the Churn Dash quilt pattern as the foundation of this quilt for my niece Kelly - thank you Jenny Doan, I couldn’t have done it without you! I free motion quilted it myself, painstakingly drawing the designs using templates and good ole friction pens (love them) - my first ever! Although not perfect,I think it turned out beautifully and she loved it! I do too. I appliqued the cats, another first for me.
