Sometime back I went to a estate sale where the primary items were quilting and sewing supplies. There was so much that the estate people I believe were overwhelmed at liquefying everything. I think the lady was a sort of hoarder. However I have much stuff of mine own so best not toss out that adjective she just loved to sew like all of us. I purchased a huge box for $4.00 with tons of projects of which I am working though. Also I purchased a bolt of fabric for $5.00 that I have used on the back of this World Map wall hanging and enough for other items. I purchased a wood grain print fabric to frame this wall hanging . I sent it to Missouri Star for long arm quilting. They are the experts after all.. I chose a design as close to waves as I could find to make the ocean look realistic . It will be in the church fall sale this year. I have a sleeve on the back for it to hang.
I bought the florographix online to make a quilt for my stepson(23). When I received it I realised there was way to much pink in it for a man but I didn’t want to waste it. I started sewing using the stars & stitches pattern. As I put it together I realised how cool it was looking & started seeing my youngest daughter (27) with it. Just waiting for lockdown to end so I can organise a long arm quilter.. I think this needs something special not just straight lines from my machine :)
I bought this beautiful Lonestar quilt top off of Etsy years ago. I love the colors. It was 61" square. I added extra borders to make it 73" x 79". I quilted it with a Wasatch Design called "Sherbert" and used Omni Blue Ice thread and Hobb's 80/20 batting. I hand bound it. This quilt will be a gift for my daughter's friend.
I made this scrappy Dresden Quilt for my daughter's guest bedroom in her new house. I quilted it with Wasatch Design "Bubbly Flowers", and used Omni Buff thread and Hobb's Tuscany Collection Supreme 100% unbleached cotton batting. I used 1.5" strips for the sashing and 9 patch corner stones. 96" x 96"
This little quilt was made using the First Heartbeats pattern. I decided to try and use up some purple 2" squares and alternate patterns and print. This quilt has 504 - 2" squares and I still have what seems like millions left! Hope a child likes it!
This was a unfished project found in the cabinets of my quilting group. The squares cut and sashing's sewn. I just put it all together. I had some checkerboard material in black and white left from another project at home I used for the back. I sent it to Missouri Star for long arm quilting by their experts. Then I added red flange binding with the checkerboard material being the ribbing part. I added a sleeve to hang but also could be used on a table.
I drafted every one of the blocks from the book so they could be paper pieced and added nine extra to get to 120 (so 10 x12) to be large enough for my king bed. I machine quilted it in "sections" so I could manage it with my regular machine. Took quite a long time, but finally got it done.
Hello, I made an extra large size throw from mostly recycle jeans and items on hand. You may recognize the little scraps from my recent quilt posted here of my brother in law shirts in the narrow strips. The jeans are recycled except for the darkest color. That denim was given to me in a large roll. The backside are 2 small soft fleece throw blankets I pieced together, so it would be large enough. I tried to match the plaids, as best I could. It still made up 58x 79. I didn’t use any batting in between. It is heavy like a weighted quilt but it hugs around you well, because it’s not stiff. I am hoping some CASA teenage boy will love it. I don’t have the ‘right’ fabrics to make boy quilts so I thought this could be suitable for a guy. I need to ‘name’ it. A friend said the small scraps remind her of tiny flags so I should name it United. What does it remind you of? I try to keep busy because can’t get out. Our state in full of Covid and all hospitals are maxed out. I have to keep my mind positive and busy making for others. Hope you like my ‘throw’. Have a nice day-Toogie
