This pattern was done as a tutorial on Donna Jordans’ website. It is a Halloween Table Square Pattern measuring 54 by 54. I thought it would make a nice wall hanging for my porch. I made the pattern. Got it all quilted and went to bind it and notice I had two pieces flipped. Well, I bound it and hung it anyway. I figured as people drive by the house, they won’t be there long enough find the mistake.
I made this very cute cat in an ugly Christmas sweater for a good friend of mine for Christmas. She has a cat and will love this. Pattern is on Anniescatalog.com and also Etsy. I saw someone on a quilting site had made this, feel in love with it and had to make it. So much fun to do.
My sister lost everything in a wildfire a few years ago. One thing she lost was her wedding quilt constructed by our Mom. But in helping Mom organize her stash we found a box with leftover fabrics from that quilt! We decided to make her a wall hanging using those fabrics and fabrics from our childhood. If is smaller than the pattern specifics from one of Donna Jordan’s tutorials (she calls it Beads) because the spot we thought it should hang is a very small wall visible to my sister from her spot on the couch. Did the hook rose in the background and ruler work on the gems so they look faceted.
I signed up to take a mini quilt class and had purchased batiks. but I did not have time to get them washed and pressed, These are the batiks I had chosen to use for the class. This one was more difficult, primarily because I arbitrarily changed my 1/4" seams and messed up the spacing, so I punted and tried to pull it off. I think I will do this again, but swap the blue for the purple. (This piece is approximately 14.5" x 14.5".)
My scrap bins were getting a bit full. This small quilt was an attempt to reduce the abundance of scraps I have accumulated over the past five years when I began quilting. I contains a little fabric from almost every project. I really enjoyed making these blocks. I used the pineapple trim tool and made the blocks just a bit bigger by adding a few additional rounds of strips than the tool allows. The quilting is simple serpentine lines in each piece and small "carnations" in the red centers. This is a great block for using smaller scraps, the width of each strip used was 1.5 inches.
I signed up to take a mini quilt class and had purchased batiks. Unfortunately, by the time I got home with them, I did not have enough time to get them washed and pressed, so I used these, which were left over from a previous project. Anyway, I was pleased with the way this turned out. To be quite frank, I expected more of a "mini" than this, but I learned the concepts. (This piece is approximately 14" x 14".)
