I am delighted that my 15yrs of working on this quilt paid off in our recent Arts and Crafts show taking out first prize in its category. I was going to edit the page on Quilts By Me but feared loosing the previous blurb as I am soooo not technology savvy!!
I made this wall hanging quilt a couple of years ago and recently entered it into our local Arts and Crafts show and please to say that Kandy was awarded 2nd prize I thought I could just edit my item on this page but somehow I lost the whole thing. Obviously I'm better at quilting that technology.
I saw this pattern a while ago and loved it but thought it was complicated to do. When I pulled out the pattern and read the directions I realized it was only a disappearing 9 patch done on point with white fabric. I had been collecting some Kaffe Fassett fabric and decided this was the perfect way to use it. So that fabric became the focus of each block with coordinating other fabric from my stash to make the blocks. I used a white on white fabric between the colored blocks. I used fabric of Kaffe Fassett for the back. A local LAQ did the quilt pattern. I used multi-colored binding to finish it off. I love how it came out. A very happy quilt.
This is a tip, for a placement step in this turtorial Jenny has given us, to make the Charm Quilt on Point. To make all your corners and side setting triangles the same, place your likefabric charms in the placement where Jenny says to cut on the 6th row charm at a diagonal up to the right top corner and on the 7th row charm diagonally down to the bottom right charm. When you continue her tutorial you will end up with all your outer half charms alike. I have the finished quilt in another post.
Need I say more! I used this last half of my older Moda layer cake on this quilt. It’s a tutorial by Jenny and ‘so easy’ is an understatement. Jenny always makes things easier but you can’t get tutorials any easier than this. The layer cake was sent to me by another quilter, as she said she hasn’t any children to sew for anymore. This is 41 inch square after quilting and will go to charity. I only put a 3 inch border, so my fabric back would fit. I also have a tip. *To have all your charms that you cut be the same, for your corner and setting triangles, pay attention for placement. I have a photo but the second photo here is usually too small to show the placement. I may have to make another post. Have a great day!-Toogie
This is the reverse side of my Weave It quilt posted here. I thought it was worth showing the back separately. It is made from older Moda yardage called Apple Jack , passed on to me by another quilter. This will go to charity. Size is 50 inch square. I was sent two pieces of the yardage. Can you find where I had to piece the Apple Jack fabric for length?
While looking at quilts on You Tube, I came across this tutorial, Weave It by Tiffany’s Quilting Life. I made it from an older Moda layer cake and yardage called Apple Jack , passed on to me by a fellow quilter. This will go to charity. Size is 50 inch square. I will show the back, in another post, as second photo cuts off so much here.—Toogie
This quilt was in the Quick and Easy Quilts Magazine June/July 2021 Issue. I made it for my great nephew. My mother in law is no longer with us but she used to collect owls. I think this might be a quilt my niece might like/cherish. I also added pieces of my mother and father law clothing in the stars. Hope they like it.
Okay, this got a little crazy. Using the Tri-Rec Ruler, I got busy making trees. It finished at 44 x 48. I added the dotted border to "tame" it a bit. First time using this ruler and was glad to see I didn't lose any points. I think this is going to a child I have in mind.
My Mom finished these embroideries and asked me to assemble and then quilt the quilt for a Great Nephew's 1st birthday. It was all done on my Mom's domestic machine so the quilting is a bit shaky but she was happy and packaged it all up for my Sister to take to the birthday party. Fastest quilt ever! Will need to check my "list of chores" before I go up to visit next time!
Recently, my first grader granddaughter and her mother (my daughter) asked me if I could make a new quilt from a well-loved dinosaur quilt that was store-bought fourteen years ago when her brother was 2 years old. The center panel of the quilt was split in two, the edges of the quilt were frayed off, and the batting looked like Swiss cheese. All I could rescue were the thin, mostly faded border pieces of the original quilt. I interfaced the pieces and added pinks and greens from my stash to put together a brighter setting with more girl-appeal. The middle child will be sharing the quilt with her newborn baby sister, pictured on the quilt.
