I found the black, Japanese language fabric in a thrift store. I wanted to make sure that it did not say anything offense if I used it in a quilt. My pool community and a picture produced the answer I needed. It was safe to use.

Woo Me is 64″ by 74″ and was my first finish of 2023. I have a fondness of reproduction fabrics and enjoyed using a jellyroll to create this quilt. My label is an example of the labels that our talented member Dawn W uses and has instructions for on her blog, First Light Designs. The binding is a faux flange binding, my favorite method.

Shattered and Scattered is my second finish for 2023. Measures 72″ square. This brings my Valentine season collection up to seven quilts.

I made this baby quilt for the daughter of a very special young woman in our lives. I opted for a printed background because a plain left too much open space. The original pattern didn’t have the little circles on top of the giraffes’ horns so I added them using the Applipops circles. I quilted it with a combination of hearts, swirls and pebbles.

I’d always wanted to create a flying geese quilt with graduated colors and sizes. I also wanted a curving uplifting feeling. I designed it and paper pieced it in October, 2015. I was not happy with the placement of the sun and finally in March (2023) I took it apart and moved the sun.

This quilt was made for two challenges. My small MPS group decided to make something with circles. Last month I won fabric at Inspirations which was mostly peach, and I challenged myself to make something from the fabrics.

Quilt is a gift to my college roommate. Sew Kind of Wonderful curve tool make all sorts of fun designs including this sunflower. I loved the backing fabric which was 42 inches wide. Using John Flynn’s Diagonal Quilt Backing formula I was able to do a diagonal cut to get the width needed. Scariest cut ever!! Thank Ruth T for sharing the diagonal cut at Retreat.

Another Birthday Banner for a grandson who enjoys playing Mario. When I play, I am reminded that ‘it’s best to drive on the road’. Thus the very curvy, decorative stitch for the quilting.Linda's Birthday Banner

  1. Every one of these quilts shows off the wonderful creative prowess of our MPS quilters! And I can’t wait to try the faux flange binding.
