I recently got back into sewing and am in the process of making quilts for my family. This one is for my daughter-in-law, Ashtyn. I saw the pattern on a magazine and recreated it using colors from her wedding and glittery fabrics since she's a glitter girl. She is also a pokemon fan and there is a square devoted to searching for a pokemon.
I just finished this quilt top for my friend/neighbor's daughter for high school graduation. I used blue, purple, and green fabric (her favorite colors). I used fabric scraps to make a string border. 80 x 96" I'm going to quilt it with my friend's help on her longarm tomorrow.
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.
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.
