Needed a project to take to the hills. Took a layer cake and then found the strip in my stash. Have been wanted to make this pattern with patriotic so this was a “practice”. Found the fleece with bats at Joanns. My daughter loved it so gave it to her. She proudly displayed it. :)
I was given two panels just alike. This is the first one I have made. Panel is by Northcott. I made 12 inch Ohio Stars and then cut my stripes at 4.5 inch . Very easy to put together and center up the panel with the blocks around. Another Quilt of Valor finish.
My quilting and all-around friend passed in April. She left behind a huge stash. 13 sewing machines, 50+ UFOs, 200 kits and so much in tools and patterns. I was able to finish a bunch of her quilts and seeing each month as others are finishing up her projects. The sale was a huge traffic jam success. Thank you to all you quilters who support us in more ways than you can count.
Well, sort of! More styled after a friend’s Red Onion quilt. I had all these “weird” green batiks that I thought why not. So I parked them up and created all these blocks. Then I divided the blocks up by bright and not. When I counted I found I only needed to reclassify one block. Then not following any pattern other than scattering some circles I laid these out. I wanted to learn a meandering leaf quilting pattern so that’s what I did. One went to my aunt and the other was picked by a friend visiting from California. Why are my pictures so blurry, they aren’t to start with?
I made Bookmarks for my niece, who is a professor of English. It is based on a pattern called Ribbon Box by Michelle Engel Bencsko. Quilting designs on figured fabric mimic the fabric design. Plain fabrics have other designs. Hand pieced, hand quilted, 55” x 65".
I made this for my great-niece, who has a thing going with her grandma (my sister) about birds. This was my first time using a panel and I struggled with how to incorporate the smaller pictures into the quilt. After lots of looking at quilts, I came up with this design. Hand stitched and hand quilted, 60" square.
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.
Another QOV pieced and really ‘hot off the press’.-lol I just finished about 15 minutes ago to take to the quilter tomorrow at our meeting. It’s off a picture I saw online. I really liked the 2in brown strips fabric. My sister said it looks just like the eagles feathers. When I say I had just enough, believe me. I might have a 2x3 piece left. Thank goodness one of the presentations was rescheduled for a later date. We needed 16 quilts done by the first week in June, but now we can catch our breath-lol- Toogie
