I was pleasantly surprised by my sister, with this beautiful quilt for my birthday this month, July 2023. The backing is just as beautiful as the quilt top…done in the aqua mums, and the binding is an aqua diagonal stripe. The quilting is white, and the design is called “apple core clamshell”. It’s finishes at 72.5” square.
Have you seen this with the Alice in Wonderland fabrics? I had the Mystic fabrics; sure had no idea what to do with them until I saw this pattern. After a trip through a friends stash I was able to find the colors to finish the layout. Mostly just outlined with a bit of whimsy in the white and black areas.
Update July 2023: My son and DIL and grandchildren moved from California to Italy in May 2023. Sure hope they took all of the quilts I made them when they moved. Hate to ask - would that be wrong? Ohhh, I'm sure they did. Shouldn't doubt it... August 2020: 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 for a great-niece, whose mom was adopted from Korea and her dad is Korean and they live in the US. So Trip Around the World is an appropriate pattern for her quilt! I quilted hearts in some of the plain squares to show she's surrounded by love. After I bought the animal fabric, my artist son chose most of the coordinating fabrics. Hand stitched and hand quilted, 63" square.
I made this for my great-niece, who has a thing going with her grandma (my sister) about birds. This was my first time using a panel and I struggled with how to incorporate the smaller pictures into the quilt. After lots of looking at quilts, I came up with this design. Hand stitched and hand quilted, 60" square.
I was given two panels just alike. This is the first one I have made. Panel is by Northcott. I made 12 inch Ohio Stars and then cut my stripes at 4.5 inch . Very easy to put together and center up the panel with the blocks around. Another Quilt of Valor finish.
Another QOV pieced and really ‘hot off the press’.-lol I just finished about 15 minutes ago to take to the quilter tomorrow at our meeting. It’s off a picture I saw online. I really liked the 2in brown strips fabric. My sister said it looks just like the eagles feathers. When I say I had just enough, believe me. I might have a 2x3 piece left. Thank goodness one of the presentations was rescheduled for a later date. We needed 16 quilts done by the first week in June, but now we can catch our breath-lol- Toogie
I saw a picture of a bright colorful quilt and thought I’d like to try to make one. I wanted to use leftover military fabrics of tanks, helicopters and Jeep’s for center row. I’m not sure how well I like how mine turned out with these fabrics. I hope I like it better once it’s quilted. I had a small piece of this fabric left from a quilt I made in March. I thought I would use it all up here but still have a small amount left. It’s not enough for binding unless I make a scrappy binding and that may be just what I end up doing as I hate waste. If anyone knows the name of the pattern I’d like to know so put it in a sticker note please. Thank you- Toogie
Because I mostly make charity quilts, someone gifted me this older Moda fabric. I don’t mind it’s an older line and neither will the recipient. The blue border and backing along with the white background I bought. I could not figure how to continuously outline the 4 blades of the pinwheels without back tracking when I quilted. I stippled the white background and blue border. I took so many pictures of this little quilt because it photographed well. -lol- I wish I could show you. I think the mom will be surprised and I hope she likes it. Size is about 57 inches square and here’s the site the pattern is on and the video. I didn’t buy the pattern just watched the video. I didn’t want all that background white space on the corners so I added the blue color border, like the blue backing. 6-23-2023 Toogie https://www.quiltingdaily.com/product/floating-pinwheels-quilt-pattern-download/
I quilted and hand bound this quilt I added 4 borders to this quilt. I finished "the Narrows" quilt top, a pattern that I tested for AQH Creative. I used Minick and Simpson nine inch squares, a Harbour Springs layer cake and Bella Solids Nautical fabric. I made the throw size. 112" x 112"
We recently celebrated Malakhi's birthday. Again, I made him a little bag & filled it with books to read & drawing & colouring-in books. I also made a little zipper pouch & popped in a couple of metal cars. I'm sure his mum will use these items for him to carry his bits n pieces to daycare.
We recently travelled across to the other side of the country from Western Australia to Victoria for the State & National Ploughing Titles. My husband in the vintage class using his Vintage Grey Ferguson Tractor & vintage plough doing very well but missing a medal by a count back. Every girl needs a new tote when going on holiday, so I made these 2 bags for the occasion. I used hessian & gorgeous tractor fabric to keep with the theme.
My great nephews are both motor bike enthusiasts and Motor X champions in their age groups, having gained many titles during competitions throughout Western Australia. They live in the north of WA and travel all over the country to meetings and comps. Like all little champions kids can't thrive in any field without the love and wonderful support of their parents. Awesome job Ryan & Siobhan for allowing your boys to ride and thrive. Ride on Brax!!
