I bought this adorable kit at a quilt show, the perfect gift for friends who own a restaurant. MSQC had the perfect quilt stand to display this project. I even got through the little bit of embroidery. Size is 11 x 12, design by Calico Patch Designs.
I saw this Cozy Quilt Designs Tradewinds quilt in a tutorial on YouTube and loved the large pinwheel blocks. I used the design and then added the top and bottm pieced boarders. I had MSQC quilt this one for me. I couldn't resist requesting the swirl design for the pinwheels. They did a great job!
I saw this Cozy Quilt Designs pattern on YouTube and loved the way the blocks looked. I am showing the quilt on the longarm because the quilt was sold before I thought to take a picture of it. I finished another quilt top for this patern with rainbow colors and a black background and will post it once quilted. This was my first effort doing my own edge to edge quilting.
I was asked to make a Christmas-themed camper wall hanging. After completing the 18" square quilt, the gal asked for three more, and wanted them all connected into one large hanging. What a task! And I had only 4 weeks to complete it. She was happy, I am happy, and wiser. I'll start my "ask-fors" further in advance from now on. Whew!
A friend passed along to me several past issues of various quilting magazines. I love browsing through them as they give me inspiration. The color choice in one of those lovelies got me going. I FMQ on my domestic machine, so I had to alter the design and pattern a bit, but the resulting 44"x44" wall hanging is just what my brown living room needed.
A local quilt shop has an annual "challenging fabric challenge" which I decided to enter this year. The rules are that you buy a little paper bag in which is a half-yard of a fabric - you buy it without knowing what it is. Then, everyone who buys the challenge bag must make a quilt using at least 1/4 yard of that fabric. I used almost all of it in my quilt, which I used the Daisy & Grace Quilt as You Go 2 1/2" Hexagon Template Set - so fun and easy, and very satisfying project!
