After a good friend made a ballet quilt for her granddaughter, she was generous to give me her leftover fabric for my own aspiring ballet granddaughter. It was more than enough to fashion another quilt plus a couple of pillowcases and a dress for a doll. Assorted prints from “At the Ballet” designed by Benartex Studios—gray, pink, black, white color pallet. Fabrics from City Ballet by Kanvas Studio.
This goes to my granddaughter who says it makes her feel happy when she looks at it, which is good cuz she has major depression. She loves it, it’s called Precious Stones from Big Book of Fat Quarter Quilts. I used 2.5 inch squares cut from charm packs and a white jelly roll plus some white yardage.
This quilt is a for a friend with cancer. Hopefully she can wrap up in the bright colors and it will bring joy to her days. I did not buy one piece of fabric for it. I even used leftovers from other quilts for the backing. Sadly, I didn't make a dent in my stash.
I used Jenny's Double-Slice quilt pattern to whip up a quilt for a colleague having a tough time. I wanted it to be bright and happy and wanted to use something from my stash. I had always loved these fabrics, so it was an easy choice. I'd had the fabric so long that I don't even remember the name. It is backed with Shannon. I bound it in red polka dot, which I thought was fun. This one is in the mail! I hope she feels loved when she wraps up in it.
I watched the You Tube video and loved the colors and design. Good Morning –Imagine my delight and surprise when I got the latest issue of BLOCK. On page 80 in the photo is a chair that is exactly the same as the chairs for my mother’s dining room set (that I now have). I remember well dusting those chairs every Saturday morning! I have attached a picture of the chair as well as a photo of the Winter Stars quilt that I completed. Loved watching the tutorial on You Tube and watch your tutorials when I spend time in my sewing room (which is a lot during the pandemic). Thank you so much for your wonderful tutorials and all the expertise you share with us! I learn something new every time I watch you on You Tube! Looking forward to the re-opening of the shops…loved our trip to Hamilton 3 years ago! Road trip coming up for my sisters and friends! All the best, Diana Thomas
