Another pieced table runner created in Oct 2019 (which is the first month I started quilting). This was made for a friend who asked for a Thanksgiving table runner - of course, she never stated which Thanksgiving! Now that I've made the 1000+ mile move and I am finally getting things squared away, I have found several UFOs that need attention. This one only needed to be bound - and I finished that 23 March 2021. (At least it will be in time for this Thanksgiving...right?)
Made this quilt for one of my sisters using the Man Sewing Burst Block Template for 10" Squares and tutorial from MSQC. Had a jelly roll of Artisan Batiks in my stash that worked perfect for this quilt. Was to excited to give to my sister, I forgot to take pictures. There appears to be an unmade bed underneath the quilt...oh well.
Made this quilt using a pattern in one of Donna Peterson's 3 yard quilt books. Made it for our local quilt shop as they are currently promoting the patterns by this lady. Simple quilt to do for sure so I tried a bit of decoration for the outside border.
A handsome baby boy tumbler quilt for a friend of my husband. I used two packages of "Pinewood Acres" by Penny Rose for Riley Blake Designs, and cordinates for the two borders. I found a matching flannel at a local quilt shop for the back. I also used Missouri Stars 5" tumbler template to cut the tumbler blocks. Getting the blocks to align properly when sewing them together is a little frustrating, there is another template out there that has a little notch in the bottom corner to help align the tumblers, that might work better. I echoed stitched about half an inch away from all seams. I just love how this quilt turned out and I found a matching bear stuff animal!
I was gifted these Civil War scraps and always wanted to make this pattern. I just cut 3,333 two and a half inch squares!!! (twelve for future shams) It took 41 per block and the layout is 9x9 so 81 blocks- After quilting it measures about 100 inches either way. I only know how to quilt like this meandering or a grid. I chose this because with the weight of this size I was afraid my grid wouldn’t stay in the ditch straight. The backing is Parlor Pretties - Diamond Geometric Gray 108" Wide. It is sold here at MSQC. This quilt and shams I plan to add, will be gifted to one of my grandsons as a wedding gift. I just hope the wife appreciates it.
I wanted to make something to hang in the glass in my front door to celebrate the arrival of Spring. After diving into my scraps, I found enough to make one piece 3 tulips wide and another piece two tulips wide (just to hang in a bedroom or something). Anyway, three wide was too wide for the door, so I ended up making a trio. Everything was cut from scraps except the background fabric and the binding.
I had made a table runner using pieces of this jelly roll, but I didn't like it, so I used some more pieces of it and made this one in Nov 2019. This was while I still lived in Gainesville FL. So - I got caught up in the move and this project took a back seat. I finished quilting it Mar 30 2021 and did the binding today (Mar 31 2021). Now I have to mail it back to Gainesville as it is a gift!
