I had a baby panel for a while but was unhappy with how light many of the objects were in it. So I finally got inspired to use the saying (which I love) and make a baby quilt during Covid. No recipient in mind yet but did use up some of my stash. :)
I purchased some charm packs on a trip to MSQC and have finally put a border on and quilted it. The Maywood Studio's Roses on the Vine by Marti Michell charm packs and blue yardage from Joanns plus a few burgundy pieces from my stash were used on this Queen size quilt. The pattern is a tutorial from Jenny. I decided to do a scalloped border and used straight edge binding like Jenny showed us. Thanks Jenny!
I had never made a log cabin quilt before and thoroughly enjoyed the simplicity of it. After reviewing design options, I settled on the fields and furrows layout. I used my favorite quilting method of simple straight lines on my home sewing machine. Although my quilting isn’t fancy, I enjoy the fact that I complete the project myself from start to finish.
I have never made a quilt, but always liked the idea of repurposing special items of clothing. When my husband died, I was left with lots of his dress shirts and decided to make a quilt. He and I spent as much time as we could sailing. I wanted a design that would reflect our times at sea. I watched many of Jenny's tutorials looking for inspiration. I realized that by taking 2 flying geese, one horizontally and the other vertically, I had a sail boat. I used the Quilt in a Day template that Jenny demonstrated. It took me a while but I finally finished it. The quilt top has been sent off to be finished, but here is the photo.
I dipped into my UFO basket and pulled this out. Pieced in awhile ago, I started quilting it right before COVID blew up. Then I switched to masks, and after about 350 masks, was able to get back to quilting this. It's a nice lap, 42 x 52, and will go to the nursing home if we ever get back to normal.
I call this one Buzz Cut because when the guys went into service the first thing was done was all their hair was buzzed off!-lol-I saw a photo of a quilt with these blades and a center square and I just had to figure it out and make one. So I did! Presented to a veteran this past year, about 60 x 80 inches.
