I saw a picture similar to my quilt on Pinterest but couldn't find the pattern. Using the picture as my inspiration, I made up my own wonky stars and set them randomly. I used pure linen for the first time as the background fabric and love the end result. It is backed with a piece of Alison Glass fabric that was just too pretty to cut. It is quite a small quilt and will likely end up being a wall hanging.
FORGOT TO ADD I DID NOT MAKE THIS PIECE . I ONLY FINISHED IT WITH BORDER AND BINDING. IT IS HAND SEWN BY SOMEONE UNKNOWN TO ME BUT RECEIVED IT FROM A ANOTHER QUILTER WHO SAID MAYBE YOU CAN FINISH THIS ONE. SHE DID NOT MAKE IT EITHER OR KNOW WHO DID. IT HAS BEEN GIFTED TO OTHER BUT NOW FINALLY DONE. Hello , I have not posted for over a year. I have been busy getting moved and settled into a retirement home. It was a lot more work than expected. I am finally able to get back to sewing and though this one is not yet complete it will be. It's been tied and just needs binding added now.
This is a free pattern. Blocks are huge! 18 inches. It is supposed to have a colored cornerstone in the sashing, but I liked mine without. Then I added a different border. Using up more of my fabric snippets! It is now waiting for me to find a backing. Will repost when it is finished.
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.
My great nephews are both motor bike enthusiasts and Motor X champions in their age groups, having gained many titles during competitions throughout Western Australia. They live in the north of WA and travel all over the country to meetings and comps. Like all little champions kids can't thrive in any field without the love and wonderful support of their parents. Awesome job Ryan & Siobhan for allowing your boys to ride and thrive. Ride on Brax!!
Eva is my daughter’s foreign exchange student this year. I wanted to make her a quilt to bring back to Spain but when I asked her what colors she liked, all I could get out of her was white and blue. So I made this simple, on point charm quilt, with a 9patch border, in all shades of blues. It measures 78 x 95 after quilting. I just meandered or stipple quilted it.
