Also from my Mom's stash were these three fabrics (blue prints) in fairly large quantities. Using the same pattern as from Granddaughters quilt, but putting one of the prints in the center. I ordered by guess and by gosh a white background and sort of turquoise print. Yeah! It worked well enough that with all these was able to get a queen-sized quilt. I will have to edit this when finished; need backing!
My best friend bought me this material for my birthday in 2020. She said it reminded her of the wallpaper her grandmother had in her house when she was young. Her favorite quilt pattern is the Log Cabin pattern so I made her this quilt for her birthday in February 2021. I used the leftover material and made her a pillow as well. She was very happy with the quilt and appreciative of the story.
This quilt is the Moda Blockheads 3 quilt. It was a block a week for all of 2020. I worked on it the whole time I was in lockdown from the Covid 19 pandemic. When I finally finished putting all of the blocks together, the quilt felt very chaotic to me and the pandemic was a chaotic time so I thought that Pandemic Chaos was an appropriate name for this quilt. It will be gifted to my sister-in-law Shelli.
My husbands baby brother died , losing his battle with cancer, April 27th. A day or two after the funeral, my sister in law Jenny, asked if I would make her a quilt from his western shirts. So...this is it. Most of his shirts had stripes and usually had a red or burgundy in the stripe. Jenny wanted just plain squares blocked off, so I bought the red blended for the sashing and blue blended 108inch for the cornerstones and backing. I felt it was too busy trying to put the squares together because of all the stripes. Also, Jenny didn’t want to sash with a lighter color and since the squares were mostly dark I went bright with the sashing so you could see some division. It is 90 inches x 96 and I just stipple/ free motion quilted. I used a dark gray thread. She has not seen it yet but I plan on giving her this on Fathers Day. I also made something for the daughters and will give them all that day since it will be a hard day for them. Maybe this will give them all a little happiness on their first Father’s Day without him.
For my grandson's wedding quilt, Missouri Star Grand Adventures pattern seem to fit the bill. He enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and other outdoor activities that the northwest has in great abundance. The quilt size 93” x 90” is a generous size. I selected the digital print Wildwood Way 10 inch layered precut Handpicked Exclusively for MSQC from RJR Studio. The background of light green/white small checked fabric called “Flourish” by Natalia and Kathleen of Piece-n-Quilt from Moda Fabrics. The 20 large blocks 15” x 18” allowed for the beautiful patterns of the fabric to shine. I also added complementary batiks from my stash collection. I embroidered and quilted northwest woodland scenes and designs and I incorporated one of the background blocks with the wedding couple's name and wedding date. Sewed matching pillowcases from the remaining fabrics.
I quilted my friends quilt top (circus pattern) for her with Urban Elementz "Day Tripper". She used Linework jelly roll and a colorful jelly roll too. My friend made this quilt for her husband. I used Hobbs Premium 80/20 batting and Omni Fountain Mist thread. 86" x 92"
