The two panels (and the center of the tree) were Row by Row kits in 2016, produced by Cary Quilting Co. I bought them with the intention of putting them together, and they've been hanging out in the to-do pile for a while. A co-worker announced that his wife was having their first child - a girl. I asked, and was told the theme was "woodland creatures." I immediately thought of this. I appliqued everything and put some additional borders on to keep it from being too skinny.I quilted it myself. The couple really liked this gift for their baby.
I picked this pattern by Southwind Designs to make a quilt for my brother and sister in law. The look of it seemed to fit their San Antonio home. I bought the background fabric, but pulled the rest from my stash, building up from the maroon flower centers. I cut out the pieces one weekend, and put them together the following weekend. The overall effect was truly gorgeous. They were both very happy with the quilt.
This is the second time I've made this pattern. This time I chose all blues/aquas. This is going to be perfect for a baby due in August whose mommy and daddy are not revealing gender. It is 54" x 54"--large enough for tummy time, tent-making and story time snuggles.
I wanted to complete a challenge to make a red quilt (using reds and neutrals) to celebrate the ruby anniversary of my local guild. I found this kit and thought it fit the bill perfectly. The pineapple effect was achieved by adding strips to an initial square, and then snowballing the corners before adding another row of strips.
I recently came across MSQC and with that the ModBlock publication. I tried a couple digital editions and fell in love. I showed my husband, James, the slice-a-block quilt from the 2016, vol.2 edition and he liked it. James stated it reminded him of HotWheels. So...I dyed some fabric choosing colors inspired by vintage HW SpectraFlame paint colors. These vintage cars are also referred to as RedLines. This quilt represents two things: My first with my new longarm, delivered April 21, 2019. Second, a quilt my husband will enjoy with every night’s sleep.
My brother-in-law requested this pattern quilt while watching me viewing a Jenny Dolan Y-tube. He requested I sew it on his grandmother's Singer treadle. It was most difficult item for me as cutting and even seams are not my best thing and this is a must for this pattern. Longarm professional Karen Marchetti did the quilting and made the blocks pop for sure.
