Another UFO completed. Hand-pieced and hand quilted.
Hopewell Hospice Home is reopening in Hillsdale and a call for ‘Passage’ quilts was made thru our MPS website. The three quilts are 50/52 x 70/72 inches. Happy to contribute to Hopewell.
Felt like using Robin Long’s tool to make a summer ‘patio’ quilt that looked like sun flowers. I love having quilts on outdoor chairs when friends come for evening gatherings. This was first quilt I used a quilting ruler and found it challenging to watch the ruler and the quilting foot. Hoping the quilting rulers get easier.
This was my introduction to needle turn applique. Definitely not a fan. I ended up using freezer paper and spray starch to turn the edges. Tonye designed this quilt to be set in a 2×3 array and I changed it to be a table runner/banner. I’m very pleased with the finished piece.
This quilt is the result of a Threads on the Edge block exchange during the lock down period of COVID. It helped us stay engaged and connected during that time of isolation. I am so grateful to be a part of this kind and talented group of women and look forward to our continued adventures.
The pouches are a thank you gift for a friend’s hospitality on a recent trip. The pillowcases are a speedy recovery gift for the same friend after some surgery.
This is a modern take on a double wedding ring quilt. I saw a photo on Instagram and was intrigued. I did purchase the templates from Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Leftover strips sets from an earlier small quilt project were used. The full melon template takes the place of all the pieced sections of a DWR quilt. Backing is a flannel shirting fabric. Bias binding was also used.
This is a design from an Australian quilter, Collins Searcy, based on an American carpet, about 1865. There are 30 blocks, plus borders.
