I am short of this mossy green fabric to finish quilt from the latest Block Magazine. Ack! What to do, then I thought of all you, maybe somebody out there has about a quarter yard of the fabric lurking in their stash. It is the Garden Twist Collection by In The Beginning; picture is cutting off name. Email in my profile description. Thanks to anybody that took the time to go through their stash.
So just playing around with scraps. I do a lot of baby quilts. But the next baby will get a quilt and this little changing pad. Measures 24 x24. Lots of times the changing table is across the house or upstairs. I thought this would be perfect to keep in a little diaper basket in the family room. Edited to add: This went out today to a new baby girl along with a very girly quilt. I told mom that for now it was a changing pad but little lady can use if for a doll quilt later on.
Having recently just lost my husband, I am first now able to get back to quilting. This is called Silver Stones and the designer is Ariga Mahmoudlou and all the materials are from Robert Kaufman using the Wishwell - Silverstone pattern. Has to be long arm quilted yet but the finished top is 70" x80".
Something I saw inspired me to think green. Then I saw this pattern and the green really took hold. I found two green prints in my stash and it became evident really quickly which one went with my “solid” green leftovers. I really liked how it looked in my brain as a center medallion in a large bed of white. After a quick consultation with my design team (Mom, Aunt, and sisters) I made more and pushed it to a queen size. Then I had to ask a friend how do you figure giant triangles for on point blocks? She found a great tool! And the best thing it worked! https://www.allpeoplequilt.com/sites/allpeoplequilt.com/files/uploads/cutting_setting_squares_and_trianges.pdf Then I made myself crazy by putting a tiny strip of white in the borders. Why am I posting before it is finished? Because I am planning on some interesting repetition of the piecing in the quilting; and it is only half formed in my brain so those types of projects can sit for a year in my to-do pile as the designs percolate.
On 3-3-2022, my sweet granddaughter was born at 1:10pm CST. We are so blessed to have her in our lives! I made this quilt out of a celestial fabric collection, chosen by my daughter-in-law. This Disappearing Nine Patch is a crib size. It was quilted with stars and swirls. Backing is done in a aqua fabric.
