Stash buster...as I put these scraps together during my pandemic quarantine...my psuedo jelly roll race quilt really got big....so I cut off part and made 2 quilts. This is the smaller one...which is a larger lap size. Thanks to Missouri Star for quilting both. I am totally amazed that I didn't use up everything in my stash!!!
My eldest grandson graduated this spring and I wanted to make him a quilt. I was looking for a more masculine pattern and thought of Man Sewing's Burst Block. He races pickup trucks (or did pre-COVID) and his truck is orange and black. Once I ordered the fabric I though it would look great in the Burst Block pattern. It's not perfect but I love how it turned out. He loves it, which is even better.
In July of 2018, my son and daughter-in-law gave me a fabric bundle of Voyage, by Kate Spain for my birthday. With this fabric, I made them a pinwheel quilt, and gave it to them last Christmas 2019. I also made my granddaughter a hour glass quilt from this line. *** Fast forward two years later, I took the remaining fabric (plus two charm packs), and made myself a good size lap quilt. (also done in the hour glass pattern) I also had enough left over fabric to cut out 2.5" x 2.5" squares, to make a cover for a small bench in my family room.
Another in the line of Quilts from my Mom. This one is a pretty recent BOM. We decided to bump it to a queen size for a wedding present. I did that by creating one more column of stars and block blocks. Took off the small colored column of blocks along the left size; put in the new column and then reattached the small blocks. Mom had always wanted to change the borders so it all worked really well to increase the size. The quilting in the blocks is spiral graph type designs to give more of a curving feel to the very geometric blocks. Then I did a meander throughout the cream with marine creatures in the 3.5 colored squares. It will make sense to the recipients.
I just finished piecing this GE Designs "Taylor" pattern memory quilt. This is the third quilt that I have made using ties from my friend that passed away in September 2019. This quilt is for my son. Eleven ties were used in this quilt along with MODA "Home" fabric by Kathy Schmitz and Kona Snow. 90" x 100" posted 7/27/2020
