I wanted to use Christmas colors and have a stained glass design. It did not turn out the way I wanted. Fortunately, the fellow who does my quilting had a very cool design that I think saved the day. Hard to on the top, better on the backing. I joked that maybe I should make the top the backing and the backing the top.
Made this large throw for a guy who had gifted me a drawing of a mansion near where I grew up. A simple thank you was not enough. The pattern is Simply Serene by Annies Catalog. I used mostly 2 Moda Charm Packs (Astra and Decorum- basic grey) but supplemented it with some fabric from my stash. The dark blue and other various shades for the triangles and borders were shades of Moda Grunge. The back is flannel. It was quilted by our local long arm quilter.
Hi Quilters! I saw a picture of a quilt sort of like this online, Pinterest or somewhere. It was one row wider and had blue background blocks on all the corners with 5 point stars applique in white fabric. It also had no border. I needed mine a size of about 60x80. Another row would have put me way over, so I opted for smaller borders. With 3 stars across I also decided it wouldn’t look good with the blue corner blocks and 1 Star block, on top and bottom. So this is my version. I think if I make it again I’ll start with smaller Star blocks. Do you think it set on point? It’s not! I thought it was and wondered how they got their blue square corner blocks set in. I made a 12 inch Sawtooth Star then treated it like the center square, in a square block!-lol It made 17 1/2 blocks set straight. It does look like Star blocks and hourglass or quarter square triangles, don’t you think? Did it fool you? It did me too at first. I just had to figure it out-lol This ended up about 63 x 81. It will of course, go with the others for our men and women veterans who deserve so much. Have a nice weekend- Toogie
I’ve had “The Birds of Liberty” fabric in the 2.5” squares for some time now. Not enough to make a significant size table topper, so I made my daughter two small toppers for her bedroom side tables. She loves them, and wants a quilt to match! Lol Probably not a chance, since this line is oop…but I’ll keep searching!
If you read the first version then not much else to say. This is almost like the picture I saw and tried to make. My corners I made here are just a bigger size Star than in the other blocks whereas the picture I made it from had Applique 5 point stars. My first version blocks were unfinished 17 1/2 in whereas these are 12 1/2 inch so required a lot more stars. Thirty five to be exact. I think I like the first try or first version with only 12 and a border-lol- Have a nice day and thanks for looking.-Toogie
I made this quilt for my great room using a couple of layer cakes, matching charm pack and one of those "Cake Mix" paper patterns and quilted it on my Q'nique. I'm pretty happy with the result but don't think I'll mess with the paper cake mixes again...seems like more trouble than it's worth.
This is a pattern from quite sometime ago. I donated it for an adult for Uvadle. The pattern is Lynne Hagmeier from Kansa Trouble Quilters. The quilt is 70 1/2 by 83 1/2. Uses a layer cake and yardage. You can also find it here: http://kansastroublesquilters-lynne.blogspot.com/2014/09/paisley-park-preview-week-2.html
Hi! A fellow online quilter passed me this Moda fabric for my charity quilts. Another quilter in my local sewing group had made a tumble quilt using a larger tumbler set sideways. I really liked the idea so I came home, measured and drew out a template and gave to my husband. He went out to his saw and cut me a template out of scrap plexiglass he had. I made this quilt for a CASA group we provide quilts for Christmas for the children. I hope this warms the little heart and soul of the child that receives it, just like it does mine to be a part of this making and giving. We gave more this past Christmas than ever and hope to exceed that amount this year for Christmas. There is a picture in my profile of all the quilts at the church where we sew. Thank you for looking, reading or liking. Have a nice day- Toogie
This is a quilt I made using Jenny’s crumb method and 3 Navy pillow panels. The method is found here Triple Play: 3 New Crumb Piecing Quilts with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star (Video Tutorial) on YouTube. I tried posting the link and it didn’t work. I made another crumb quilt earlier and stripped it with the Star sashing. It’s in my profile here. I think these scraps or crumbs look wonderful, don’t you? Thanks Jenny!
I had all the earth tone fabrics I purchased for a different quilt, but they just weren't working for me. When I saw this pattern in one of the MSQ magazines, I knew I needed to use up the fabric. I even had the border fabric which I just love. Those are my husband's feet peeking out.
