This is another of my Mom's projects. She had all of the embroideries complete and even some of the quilting. I finished the quilting, binding and even and enough left to make an apron with a stray Embroidery. When I showed it all to my Mom she said that is exactly what she was thinking she would do with the stray embroidery.
This is a Cozy Quilt Designs pattern called Drop Diamonds and I used an older fabric collection from Sandy Gervias called "Fall Back in Time." It is an easy quilt to make, but I did have a hard time getting my diamond points to match up. I forgot to square my blocks and realized after the top was all done that my white diamonds points are a little off. Overall I think it turned out really fun, I don't know what quilt design to do yet, maybe this will be the first I take to a long arm quilter.
After collecting purple fabric for several years, I had one UFO I was not pleased with in the color palette. When I saw the Lemon Star tutorial by Jenny, I loved it and thought I might be able to do it. So I just got started with whatever purple fabric I came across in my sewing closet. As I saw the fabrics coming together, I browsed MSQC and found the sashing, cornerstones, and border that brought it all together.
I never really thought I would like making crumb blocks until I tried. After watching Misty and the Quilting Marine, I have become an addict for them! I am a veteran and even though I never experienced the level of PTSD as a lot of my fellow veterans, I find the process quite calming.
More placemats but I put these as the back side of my Wine placemats. This was a panel I have had in my to do supplies for a very long time. The panel was called Follow the Sun. A copywrite panel design by Lisa Audit Licensed to WP. www.wilmington prints.com I love these also as I do have a Sunflower art photo hanging in my kitchen near our table.
I love the look of batiks and love working with them. When I saw Jenny's tutorial on the Confetti Star, I knew it would look great with an assortment of batiks. I quilted it on a long arm using a pantograph. I am very happy with the way it turned out, although I didn’t think I would ever finish hand stitching the binding.
I made this quilt to commemorate the 40th wedding anniversary of my husband and I, which is this month. Most of the fabric was from my stash, except I had to order a bit more light colored fabric and additional burgundy fabric for the backing.
