This quilt was made for wonderful friends who go way back in our lives. Their modern home has a unique color scheme. When we were traveling in Reno I came across a great quilt shop and found all of these fabrics that look like they belong in our friends' home. I carted about 5 yards of fabric all the way back to Texas. I actually made the quilt top twice because I didn’t like the first one. I’m very pleased with how this one turned out. It was pieced, appliquéd and quilted on my domestic sewing machine.
This quilt is for my granddaughter, Annabelle. I am in the process of making quilts for my family after a long time away from sewing, and i am thoroughly enjoying my time again. Annabelle helped picked some fabrics and helped organize the squares, and sat at the machine with me a few times to help sew.
I recently got back into sewing and am in the process of making quilts for my family. This one is for my daughter-in-law, Ashtyn. I saw the pattern on a magazine and recreated it using colors from her wedding and glittery fabrics since she's a glitter girl. She is also a pokemon fan and there is a square devoted to searching for a pokemon.
I made it using Sweet Pea Favorites Flannel 10" Squares and Country Road - Dapple Moonlight Tonal Black 108" Wide Flannel Backing (cut in 10" squares). Super Easy. I will be making another one so both my granddaughters will be cozy warm this coming winter. Washed and dried 3 times, looks a little wrinkly, but am sure it will look better if I take it out of the drier right when it stops this time :) Note to self, purchase proper scissors for cutting all the seam allowances, don't want blisters again.Note to self: (either from the backing or from the black 10" square from the layer cake itself) the black has leaked to the white square, as I notice they are a bit dull, greyish now that it has been washed a few times.
This baby quilt was made using a MSQC Xs and Os Quilt pattern except I made it baby-sized for our niece’s new baby girl due this June. I used 10” precut squares, from the Romance Mint Collection by Benartex, and adjusted the pattern for a small quilt. I tried to be a little creative on the back by centering three large pinwheels. I also used leftover pieces of my 10” squares to make the binding. This was my first attempt at machine quilting, something I hope to try again soon......maybe!
I started my Sundrops (by Corey Yoder, for Moda) in the Magic Diamonds pattern so long ago! I worked on the individual squares on and off for about 3 years now, putting them away, making another quilt, then taking them out again. I "finally" finished this project. Since I did not have enough squares to make at least a twin size quilt, I went with a table topper. The backing and the binding is done in the strawberry print from the collection. I did a simple loop pattern for the quilting. It looks great with my "fall silk flower" arrangement. I have to update my silk flowers suitable for summer!
