This is another QAYG only this time I used 1" unfinished strips (1/2" finished) and then used the decorative stitches on my machine to quilt each strip. After the quilting was completed I cut the quilt (YIKES!) into 16 equal 3" squares which I then attached onto cardstock notecards. I love mailing "tiny" quilts to my friends and pen pals and fellow quilters when requested! This makes No. 10 of 52 of my "I Walked The Line" challenge. I used Jacquie Gering's book WALK as my guide for quilting this piece.
This is No. 8 of my walking-foot challenge. After struggling with my HST quilt, I decided I needed something fun to make. . . and these were very fun to make! First I straight lined stitched the background, then appliqued the wonky boxes and then I just wonky stitched at random the individual boxes themselves.
I found this free pattern, "Radiance Bloom" by Robin Pickens along with her NEW Thatched basics prints from Moda Fabrics and fell in love with both of them! I used Edyta Sitar's "Olive Branch" fabric from her Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover Fabrics for the binding; Moda Cotton "Natural" for the background; and Cotton Canvas Painter Tarp for the backing.
This is my first wholecloth mini quilt and my 14th mini quilt for my personal "I Walked the Line Walking-Foot Challenge". I used Melissa Marginet's "Edge-to-Edge Walking Foot Quilting Designs" book to learn how to set up the "grids" for this pattern. Fabrics used: "Shadow Play" by Maywood Studio for the background; Kona Solids Black for the binding; and Cotton Painters Canvas/tarp for the backing;
I quilted three designs (Chandelier from Wasatch quilting, (Nemesh's Feathers Grande and Marmalade from Urban Elementz)) just for fun on this double cuddle luxe quilt for my daughter. I used Snowy Owl Mallard for top and Mallard for backing. I used Omni Fountain Mist thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting. 57" x 90" 02/23/2021
I quilted this tulip tabletop following one of Missouri Star Triple Play Quilt Tutorials dated 4/18/2020. I used Kaffe Fassett prints and my scrap tub of orphan 5" squares. I also continued with 2 1/2" border of 5" squares. I quilted with Edge to Edge flower motif., then embroidered a spool and needle on one of the runners. It was so much fun, that I made a second one for my daughter who lives near Seattle. She was delighted to have it as springtime comes a bit earlier there and just in time for the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley.
Decided to make a small version on my Tulip Time Table Runner. This one measures 26" x 10.5". I again used MSQC Tulip Fields Pattern only this time I used 2.5" squares instead 5" squares which I used in my larger table runner. Fabric: Grunge Basic Grey for Tulips, Shadow Play by Maywood Studio for leaves and binding, Robert Kaufman Kona Quilt Cotton in Natural for background and 8oz Cotton Natural color canvas painters tarp for backing.
Saw this recently and thought it would be pretty in my leftover burgundy's and a dusty blue I had. At first was thinking of just randomizing the colors. That did not work for my eye; just felt to jumbled. Wanted to try the curl hook with feathers quilting design and then some paisley thrown in in the cream backgrounds. The stars were a bit harder. Nothing I drew worked so I ended up just shadowing the shape along the two inside edges.
Recently I transferred some Boston Terrier designs from tee shirts and appliqued them to golf type shirts with collars for a friend. I used the sleeves to make her some mask but then decided to also use the back of the tees to make a wall hanging. Using my Mom's quote " Waste not want not" I found some on sale embroidery software for the dogs and really this was a experiment. I have software embroidery designs for the "The 12 Days of Christmas" which include the words for each design and day. I been wanted to make that into a quilt for ME for a long time but unsure how to put these heavy embroidery designs on material with batting for a quilt. Jenny posted recently making a quilt using batting that has one side that that is fusible. A idea formed. I thought why not sew the backs of the tee together and fuse it to the batting and then put my Pellon on the back of batting . Hoop it for the designs by centering it in each sewn tee square. Here is the result. The back is sunflowers used a panel for that so reversible if my friend so chooses.
This was a bear paw block I had made for my Wooley Bear Paw Wall Quilt, but decided not to use this color in it. So, instead, I am using it for one of my I Walked The Line Challenge blocks. This is No. 13 of 52 and did Radiating Lines (WALK by Jacquie Gering) or also called Bright Star (EXPLORE Walking Foot Quilting by Leah Day). I used MSQC Bear Paw of Point Quilt pattern (BLOCK Idea Book Vol 7, Issue 6, 2020, Page 14), only this single block is not on point! I also learned how to make flanged binding thanks to Natalie's MSQC Final Stitch Video. (My new love for binding, from now on! Thank You, Natalie!) Fabric: Woolies Flannel by Bonnie Sullivan Jelly Roll and 10" squares, and Woolies Flannel by Bonnie Sullivan Brown and Black Weave Flannel yardage was used for background and backing.
HAL 9000, from Arthur Clarke's book/movie, "2001: A Space Odyssey," just seemed to be the perfect match for my next "I Walked the Line" No. 11, quilting challenge. I wanted to do another PAYG (Piece As You Go) quilt using hexagons, and this time I used Leah Day's "super spiral" method from her book "EXPLORE Walking Foot Quilting. Instead of doing a spiral though, I quilted a hexagon spiral-type shape around HAL. I love the look of the hexagon spiral (and HAL!) and plan to make a larger quilt like this one using the same quilting method.
