So what do you when you plan to make a quilt which calls for 45 degree triangles and you almost finish cutting fabric only to realize that you have been using a 60 degree ruler? You make lemonade. With equilateral triangles it was easy to put the them together in a zigzag pattern. I like the way it turned out even if it was not what I had planned. I quilted it using a pantograph on a long arm. My brother grabbed it!
Here is another wall hanging of USA map. Like the World Map I posted a few days ago it also large enough to fill a wall and either could be a twin bed covering if person so desired to use it this way. I have sleeve on back to hang however. It was part of my estate sale find $4.00 box. Quilted by Missouri Star a pattern I felt looked like ocean waves and same blue butterfly material on the back. Framed in wood grain pattern material
This little quilt was made using the First Heartbeats pattern. I decided to try and use up some purple 2" squares and alternate patterns and print. This quilt has 504 - 2" squares and I still have what seems like millions left! Hope a child likes it!
While looking at quilts on You Tube, I came across this tutorial, Weave It by Tiffany’s Quilting Life. I made it from an older Moda layer cake and yardage called Apple Jack , passed on to me by a fellow quilter. This will go to charity. Size is 50 inch square. I will show the back, in another post, as second photo cuts off so much here.—Toogie
Sometimes you have fabric--in this case Christmas fabric. After looking on-line for ideas, I decided on this Super Simple Squares from MSQC. There are things I like about this quilt and things I'm not so crazy about. But it is done and I have a good idea where it is going.
I am delighted that my 15yrs of working on this quilt paid off in our recent Arts and Crafts show taking out first prize in its category. I was going to edit the page on Quilts By Me but feared loosing the previous blurb as I am soooo not technology savvy!!
My cousin's got a baby girl on the way, and mentioned ducklings as part of the nursery theme (big brother had lambs :)). Searching for ideas, I saw a really cute quilt with mama and baby ducks. I loved the general look of it, but didn't like the duck block design. So, my daughter and I designed our own ducks. It involved a lot of math and some mangled test blocks, but eventually we got it! I quilted the green parts with Lori Kennedy's honeycomb motif, and did some more detailed FMQ in the ducks. I was even able to use up some scrap/stash fabric for this one!
