Way back when, I purchased two Timeless Treasures Kitty Cucumber panels in two different colorways, plus some coordinating fabric, with the intention to make two separate quilts. Well, I didn't care for some of the printed squares in the blue colorway, and some of the squares in the green colorway were so pale that they just disappeared. Furthermore, when I prewashed the panels, I found that the blocks were not all square. I tried adding the red heart borders to frame the blocks and give them some character. I tried different arrangements of piecing and sashing with the coordinating fabrics....nothing clicked. When I pulled this out again this year, I decided it was "finish it or donate it." I also decided that I didn't want to purchase any additional fabric for this quilt. When I found the soft butter yellow fabric in my stash, everything sort of fell together. I used the scattered Kitty C fabric (originally purchased for wide borders for two quilts) for the backing, using up the green coordinate fabric to extend the width and length. I quilted this with a walking foot. (Side Story: One of my granddaughters examined this quilt and asked me, "Where's the cucumbers?!?" Kitty Cucumbers are a group of collectible figurines by Schmid Merrimack from the 1980's, collected by my three daughters for birthdays and holidays. They are now Vintage.) No pattern used.
I finished hand binding this quilt. My friend Patti Hutchins quilted swirls on her long arm. I gave this quilt to my friend as a birthday present. I starting making this quilt while I was finishing my previous pink and gray Jordan Fabrics "Ribbons" pattern quilt (gift for a friend of a friend). I added an extra border to this quilt to make it a lot bigger. I put special blocks in corners of the last border. 89" x 93".
Another baby quilt using the leftover fabric from parents wedding quilt. I always buy way too much. But have now finished up the majority of the fabric. YEA! I haven't gotten it quilted yet, it's off the stretcher frame and ready. I want to quilt feathers in the corners with the circles. Will see what the quilt says when I get to that point? Our only granddaughter will get the last quilt.
Mother of bride came up with the colors and arrangement. This was for her son. I did all the cutting, sewing and quilting. A bit grainy, photo from old computer. This isn't the best picture, but all I have. The background is white and is quilted with white thread. I took a picture of it with my camera phone from the computer screen and this is how it turned out, sorry guys. I will never see this again.
This was created by "the seat of my pant" for a dear friend who was going through cancer. She chose the colors and I came up with this pattern. A photo from old computer, so it's a bit grainy Forgot to mention, she has passed away. Yes, she truly loved this quilt and it was with her always.
This is for a great niece, whom will graduate in 2020. These colors were chosen when she was about 7 years old. Yes, I am just now getting around to getting this done. I know she'll like it. Her family ancestry is Irish and Native American. I am planning on quilting a young Indian maiden in the negative space between the chains. I was called "Little Irish Indian" by a dear family friend until he passed away. The daisy fabric is the backing.
