My niece is expecting this September so I needed to make a baby quilt she could use when she goes to the gym with the baby. I have rheutmatoid arthritis in my hands so stufiing the puffs would not be easy. I used dream quilt, cut them 5" and double the squares to make them real puffy.
My son went to Beirut, Lebanon in June 2022 to visit a friend. While there he wanted to bring me back a gift of fabric. All they had was upholstery fabric and he bought 4 yards. When he brought it home I thought it would make a great one block wonder. Well, the fabric is heavy, hard to work with. Seams don’t line up and are very thick. I got tired of it and I let it sit for months. My son kept asking when I was going to finish it. Well, I finally did. He’s happy and I’m happy it’s done.
I made this thread catcher from a pattern out of The Quilt Bee book from Bonnie and Camille. It’s holds all my frequently used notions. The floral fabric is from the At Home collection. The navy pin dots is Dwell, and the aqua polka dots is Riley Blake.
Today, 3-10-23, I picked up my quilt from my local quilt shop. Love how it turned out! I just finished piecing my Hodgepodge quilt, and took it to my local quilt shop (Hunter’s Quilt Mart) yesterday, 2/27/23. Since the collection has roses in it, I chose a quilt pattern with large roses in it. My quilt shop was my inspiration to making this quilt…as they had a sample quilt hanging up during one of my visits. My daughter gave me the fat quarter bundle for a Christmas gift (2022). This quilt is a throw size, but will cover a full size bed nicely. I will be making my daughter one as well.
I have been seeing a lot of clear vinyl project bag tutorials on YouTube lately, so I decided to make one for my cross stitch supplies. The inside liner and backing was quilted in a cross hatch pattern. The liner is from the “Good Life” collection by Bonnie and Camille. The borders and the backing are from the “Shine On” collection, by the same designers. My project bag finished at 16” x 18’, so its a great size.
I quilted and hand bound this quilt. I gifted it to my daughter. I just finished piecing "the Regatta" quilt top made with beautiful Sail Away fabric by Melanie Samra and Deborah Edwards for Northcott. This wall hanging (52" x 54") is a gift for my daughter. I bought the kit from MSQC.
I love the Lella Boutique Love Note fabric. I used two charm packs, a mini charm pack, one yard for border, and a fat quarter for the green, plus background fabric. I'm making this quilt as a gift for my cousin. 61" x 75"
Made this bom quilt purchased from MSQC. Not for any particular person, I just like all the colors and the size. Maybe when I know for sure my dogs will not chew it up, I'll put it on my bed. Until then, it's put up. Quilt is 91 x 91. Designed by Nancy Rink Quilted by Hunters Quilt Mart
This was a Man Sewing pattern using the MSQ large half hexi template. I made good use of my design wall as I laid this one out! I know I keep saying the quilts tell me…but it really seems they do. This one wanted me to do an all-over (edge to edge) design I have never attempted. My machine is a sit down totally FMQ so my all-over design usually is a meander. But this one wanted me to do a big, like 6 inches or more version of the Hook Rose as the all-over design. A quick practice and then using my Martelli 8 inch ring I went for it. And a bunch of digging I found a suitable green to create a flange binding.
