I just finished hand binding this batik quilt top that I purchased off of Etsy years ago. I visited my friend in Florida and quilted eight quilts (one of the eight quilts) while I was there. I'm giving this quilt to my husbands sister in law, since she loved this top when she visited last summer.
Update: I just finished hand binding this quilt after a guild member quilted an elephants and hearts pattern on her longarm. by Cherri House in Fons and Porter Baby Quilts magazine, Fall 2010. This is a quilt kit put together by my quilt guild. I volunteered to make. This quilt will be given to an organization that gives items to Foster children. I arranged the blocks in a diagonal color pattern as I liked the secondary hourglass pattern created with the snowballed corners. I added more blenders from my stash as the kit only had the patterned elephant fabric. 59" x 68"
Update: I just finished hand binding this quilt. I quilted this quilt while visiting my friend in Florida who has a computerized longarm. Picture updated with last border added. I just finished this Wine themed quilt top (I have one more border cut to add, but it won't fit on my kitchen floor with last border). Last border is green. I'm making this queen size quilt for friends that retired and moved to the Outer Banks. My friends love wine and going to wineries. It's from a picture I saw of the "Chocolate Swirl Quilt Kit" by Phoebe Moon Designs in Connecting Threads, September 2019 flyer. Mine will be 94" square
About 3 years ago I went to a estate sale that advertised much sewing supplies. There was a whole room full of stuff in no particular organized manner. In one corner was a huge pile of stuff. When I asked why it was so piled up they stated it was trash. At the very front was a large shopping bag with what appeared to be a sewn quilt top. I pulled the tangled dirty thing out and saw it was savable. Washed it and cut the fraying seams, restiched a few and pressed it many times to get it flat. When I asked how much they told me a $1.00 as it was trash. Donating this to Bowl Pink which helps local women who face cancer.
This baby quilt is made from leftovers from 3 other quilts. Later Alligator, by Sandy Gervais, Windham Basic Brights, and Hooray by Patrick Lose. I made one that was all Later Alligator, and just finished the second one that still needs quilting. This turned out well and is bright to intrigue an infant or toddler. I backed it with a blue minky and used a blue thread in case some minky might pull through. I'm making two burp cloths with some left over flannel and matching fabric. The pattern is by Amy Smart, one of her 3 free star pattern off her blog.
Our youngest boy is getting married, and their wedding is centered around sunflowers. I just love sunflowers. Sew I got this great idea I would try to make a quilt with sunflowers. Mind you I haven’t made very many quilts ( just a few) Sew this project is probably a little bigger than I should have bit on..... I found the cutest sunflower on Pinterest. The kids didn’t know about the quilt until the big day. I think it was a pretty big hit.
Needed a baby boy quilt for sports enthusiastic parents. Riley Blake's "Play Ball" fabric line was perfect. I used my quick Mode Love Star Free Pattern and backed it with a blue pre-washed flannel with light blue thread for the quilting in stars & swirls. I used the stripe fabric for the star's center legs. I'm making two burp cloths with the left overs.
