BLOCK magazine pattern Dashing Stars. Loved this huge block design. I wanted the secondary pattern of squares to look less random so I partially completed the blocks, laid them out and then finished the outer edges with the preferred ‘snowball’ colour for the secondary block.
Well being stuck at home now for 3 months or so a bit stir crazy with no social contact here. Have cleaned the whole house from top to bottom, painted rooms, redid yard in places. Today I made this table center piece. The 3 bags of poly to stuff it arrived yesterday from MSQC very timely indeed. Used scrapes in stash and pattern free garage sale find. McCall's # 3777 Also has tree skirt, stockings, wreath and many tree ornaments in pattern package.
This is my first time making hearts. While this turned out alright, I think instead of quadrants, I'd rather have half one fabric and half another fabric. I make and send out many baby quilts so I know this one will find a home, but I think I'll make another similar to this but less busy by changing fabric selections a bit.
Y'all are probably sick of me and my aqua colorway quilts. I really am trying to move on to other colorways. I make a LOT of baby quilts. It is my joy to gift new babies with their own quilt and this colorway works so well for baby girls and boys. This one finished off at 45 x 45.
The Voysey collection, a William Morris reproduction line by Moda, inspired this quilt. The quilt measures 116x104. I used the quick curve ruler and the design wall to come up with this original design. Lots of feathers and some ruler work and pearls completed the quilting.
Scraps and Pieces of denim from many projects makes this queen size top. Made or pieced on newspaper pages, trimmed and sewed in rows. As you can tell by the construction. Batting in middle, hand quilted, although not quite finished(hence the pins). I used cookie cutters, a horseshoe and imagination. Maybe a quilt stencil too. I'm going to try and get it finished. Its been in limbo for a few years.
Oh, goodness, This has been in storage for several years. I finally decided to get it back out and start quilting on it. I thought I would try doing it all by hand. Will see when I get to the borders how I feel then, Ha Ha Ha This is a winter project and it's in progress. The colors aren't true on screen. I'm using 12' boards on my stretcher frame and I almost ran out of room, so this is an extra large king. I used Jan Krentz's instructions for this Lonestar. It is FINISHED!!! 101 X 101 inches
Made this runner for a girlfriend who i just helped repaint her living room and dinning room. She purchased new curtains, rugs and clock. I wanted to give her table an upgrade with a personal touch. Her birthday is in June, I think I will give it to her then, be a surprise. The middle has flannel, used a ruler and free motion quilting. Size is 16w x 24 l
