Here is another wall hanging of USA map. Like the World Map I posted a few days ago it also large enough to fill a wall and either could be a twin bed covering if person so desired to use it this way. I have sleeve on back to hang however. It was part of my estate sale find $4.00 box. Quilted by Missouri Star a pattern I felt looked like ocean waves and same blue butterfly material on the back. Framed in wood grain pattern material
This is a free pattern from Jordan Fabrics called almost a lone star. It uses a jelly roll. I added borders to make a queen size quilt to use in my camper. The quilt is 91 by 117. I also used wool batting. It is such a heavy quilt. Binding got alittle wonky with all the pulling and shifting.
Hello! Just finished piecing this, but can’t hand off to a quilter as our group has decided not to meet, for a while. Covid high here. Will go to a Veteran eventually. This panel seemed to have enough going on that I wanted something simple but meaningful. Never tire of seeing our flag colors. Size 63.5 X 82 Hope all are safe & well-Toogie
My sister recently picked up a bag of 3" squares and the start of a scrappy quilt from our local 'op shop'. Her thinking was Wow, Lynda could finish that :) It was a bit of a mess, but hey, we all have to start with a scrap of fabric & kind of a plan. With it's irregular 1/4" seams it took a bit to get this one to take a regular form and finally I was happy with it enough to sandwich it & quilt in the ditch. The end result is not too bad.
I was inspired by the idea to draft up and make this after seeing a pattern for a Dodge Truck table mat By Connie at Freemotion by the River. I'm pretty happy with the way my table mats turned out. I quilted it using simple meaner with a little difference on the window.
This is for a good friend's daughter, who requested pink and grey. She's 8, so I tried to go with slightly more "mature" fabrics so she won't outgrow it too fast! It's backed with kinky, and quilted with a meandering double loop. I'm retrospect, I wish I had made the gray between blocks a little narrower. But I do love the scrappy pink binding!
My cousin's got a baby girl on the way, and mentioned ducklings as part of the nursery theme (big brother had lambs :)). Searching for ideas, I saw a really cute quilt with mama and baby ducks. I loved the general look of it, but didn't like the duck block design. So, my daughter and I designed our own ducks. It involved a lot of math and some mangled test blocks, but eventually we got it! I quilted the green parts with Lori Kennedy's honeycomb motif, and did some more detailed FMQ in the ducks. I was even able to use up some scrap/stash fabric for this one!
This was my first shop hop, I visited each shop, purchased the block, and then chose the finishing kit for the one I liked most. That was November 2016. I started in 2017, worked on it mostly at retreats and finally finished this 95 x 95 Queen size quilt, the largest I have made. Not bad for 4 1/2 years! My longarmer did a beautiful job with a panto called Tea Rose.
