Update: I finished quilting with Nemesh's Feathers Grande and hand bound this quilt. I finished my Stitchin Heaven - Journeys quilt top - a 12 month - block of the month (BOM), with Studio 180 designs, beautiful fabrics by Jason Yenter In the Beginning Fabrics, and a wonderful Novella by Marie Bostwick. I had so much fun sewing this top. This is the second quilt top that a friend and I sewed together thru video chat (we live in different states). I plan to quilt feathers on it. 101" square
This was posted pre-quilted. It's now finished and some viewers wanted to see it completed. So here is how I did mine. The two bottom photos...one is the center design, the white flecks are from the freezer paper that was stuck in all the threads. The one on the right is a closer look at the quilting. I had not put a border around it, till after the body of the quilt was finished. I know that the colors don't quite match, but it's mine and it's ok with me. I couldn't find the tutorial on the MSQC site down below, but it's called Binding Tool Star. I am sure most if not all of us have seen it.
I wanted a new quilt for my bedroom and wanted something where I wasn't cutting up the beautiful prints so I could actually enjoy them. I found Jenny's "Irish Change" and decided that was the one for me. This photo is prior to sending it to my LAQ to be finished. I added the piano key border with various width "keys" just to grow the quilt to king sized.
I signed up recently for a embroidery class offer by Kimberbell Co. offered by my local Sewing shoppe where I purchased my two Baby lock machines. There were 3 projects in the kit. First was 2 Christmas ornaments and second was a embroidered Christmas card. Sorry forgot to take photos of these. The last project was this cute Christmas pillow done entirely in the hoop.
I made this king size quilt for my daughter for Christmas. I designed a 10" tree block to alternate with the MSQC Irish Change block. I used "O Christmas Tree" fabric by Sue Zipman for Clothworks, Stitch fabric by Lori Holt, Seaglass Sahara backing by P and B Textiles. I quilted it with Wasatch design Modern Christmas Tree 2013. 111" x 101"
