I finished this quilt top for my Aunt. My Aunt's favorite colors are pink and green. The background fabric the cream with green leaves on it. It is made of nine patch blocks alternated with another nine patch block that has four patches in the corners. I love chaining four patches. I used some vintage fabric for this quilt. I've been making quilts for all my aunts. I have one more quilt to make. I hope to quilt it tomorrow. 62" 71"
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 Mom had a pile of little block packets from her local fabric shop. She kept part and sent along these. (I quit making them when I had the number needed) With a little finagling of the fabrics I came up with these 12. Bordered with more of the fabric and bound with a purple from my stash it turned out pretty cute. Also from my Mom's stash was a lot of the Ultra Suede fabrics. Quilted using a large meander. They are making fabulous backs. Will go to a nephew and wife who are expecting their first in August.
My Glorious Granddaughter is graduating from High School this spring. When I asked her if she would like a quilt she said yes! Could it be a throw size in mint and greys? Okkkaay...she sent me to Hobby Lobby to look at the mint dish rags. Which I carried over to the fabric department to see what I could find. WOW! Didn't realize it is the color this year. Found some beautiful fabrics to use in a star pattern I had found sometime ago. I made up several different blocks using the colors and texted them to her. She picked her favorite arrangement and I got started. Yikes, a lot of HST. Friend said to do at the least part of it as flying geese and here is how you do them 4 at once. That was a great time saver. Once together I laid out several choices on borders and texted her again. Going with what turned out to be both of our favorite layout! I used a large flower meander and leave things. (Technical term) The binding is with the same fabric as the outside border; I really like the look of an infinity edge on quilts that I want your eye to go to the center, not the edge.
The center stars are actually from the first Lemon Star quilt. I bumped up the sizes and made a bunch more stars to go around the smaller stars. Thinking I would have to add a border around the smaller stars to get it all to work. But, it turned out it was easier to just put in spacers! Will give to my Darling Daughter to give away to one of her residents.
Needed some bowl cozies for home use. Husband has one for work. I used a utility interfacing. Does have the metallic in center, so not to be used in the microwave, which is what I wanted. Sometimes food runs over! I made 5. Fabric was for my SW kitchen. Today we Craft is the youtube video I watched to get the directions.
Misty did a cute tutorial on this project, turned out so pretty. I wanted to give it a go. Thought it would brighten up my sewing room. So purchased all the supplies and went after it. I did a tight stipple on the main piece for structure. Made up fairly quickly, good instructions and Ta-Dah!!
I made this for my 4yr old grandson who needed a longer quilt for his naptime at Day Care. He is now into dinosaurs. I went into my stash and came up with this design. I only bought backing from our local quilt shop to finish this. Hope he loves it and has fun looking at all the dinosaurs and fossils (on the back) on the quilt. The dinosaur fabric is from the Moda collection from a few years back - Jurassic Jamboree. Finished size is 44 x 53.
