I made this because I love beautiful yellows, but they are hard to find. When I finished the lap sized quilt, I shared a picture with my sister who reminded me that HER bedroom was yellow. So I made another set of blocks to increase this to a queen sized quilt. It will be her Christmas gift this year.
I made this Quilt of Valor for a Vietnam veteran. He was 18 years old when he enlisted In 1965 and 6 weeks later he was in Vietnam. He was awarded the Purple Heart. He is a patriot who served his country in wartime. The pattern is from the book, “Quilts of Valor, A 50 State Salute”. “The quilt was awarded 9-15-2020. I used all fabric by the yard. MSQC machine quilted the quilt.
Update - I finished hand binding. - I rescued this gorgeous Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt top and quilted it with Urban Elementz "Marmalade" pattern. The sides had already been cut off before I rescued it. The sides were stretched out, so I used Best Press and steam from my iron while it was on my quilt frame to tame the fullness. I got it to lay pretty flat on the frame. I'll work on binding it today. This is the ninth quilt that I quilted on my longarm. 85" x 94" 8/15/2020
This is only my third project. I didn't have a clue how make this quilt. I bought the material to make it last August but didn't really get into making it until March 2020 SIP. I really love MSQC Youtube tutorials Jenny makes everything look easy. I must have watched the video 5 times. I really love the way it turned out and am so happy to have it in our camper.
I bought 2 layer cakes of Cottage Joy by Shannon Christensen for Windham Fabrics, when on a visit to MSQC. I decided to make the Double Slice large 87x96, so I ordered more yardage. I love how this came out, The combination of the pattern and the fabric, somehow looks vintage to me. I love the mason jars! I quilted it with just stippling, on my sit down long arm, free motion. It's 10 x 11 four piece blocks, so 110 blocks. Hope you like it as much as I do and thanks AGAIN Jenny for such a simple pattern, but oh so pretty!
This is my 34th quilt . This one counts as a quilt pattern on my bucket list. I've wanted to do a Triple Irish Chain quilt since I started quilting in 2014. This particular TIC pattern is "Georgene" by Edyta Sitar in 'Patches of Scraps', a book I borrowed from the library. The prints are a variety of Cotton Lawn fabrics and the background fabric is Cotton Couture. It was a challenge making 3" square 9-patches using 1.5" squares of cotton lawn fabric. I started cutting and piecing in June 2019, and finished the binding in December 2019. It's 83.5" square, with a premium white muslin backside, and a cotton/poly batt. Lyn Durbin at Camlyn Quilting in Smokey Point, Washington, did the free-motion meander long-arm quilting. I also made 2 pillowcases using a premium muslin for the bodies and scraps for the cuffs. It was gifted to my son and DIL in California for Christmas 2019. The 2 grandkids each have 4 quilts from me, so it was their parents' turn. I do love quilting though, so they will no doubt get at least one more big one from me. Posted by Peggy at Bothtwins on August 14, 2020.
I made this quilt to put out after Christmas and for Valentine’s Day. The pattern is from the MSQC and made from fabric by the yard. It is my first attempt at piecing a backing which turned out to be quite a project in itself. It goes together pretty fast. It was machine quilted by the MSQC.
