“The Return of the Light” is a raffle quilt for the Portland Christmas Revels. 60″ square. A wall hanging or a lap quilt. A sawtooth star made of log cabins. Quilted by Teresa Koster.
My oldest grandchild, Harrison, graduates from high school this May, so I made him a t-shirt quilt from t-shirts my daughter saved for me over the last several years. This was my first experience creating one—BOY, WHAT A CHALLENGE!! It was quilted by Kristi Ryan.
I made this for my grandson, James. The pattern is by Kellie Wuhlfson, Melbourne. I changed it to suit my needs, but the robots are all hers. It is machine appliqued and machine quilted by me. All robots are batik with white on white backgrounds.
This was the result of a challenge in our small quilt group. We all shared strip sets and challenged ourselves to use them creatively. Most kaleidoscope quilts are on an offset pattern but I chose to make a 3×3 setting. There was no pattern so I had to use the ruler and make up the side sections on my own. It was great fun to make. Teresa Koster quilted it reminiscent of the Japanese crests.
This quilt is made of 3 keepsake blocks from the Portland Modern spring retreat. It measures 10.5x 24.5 inches and is predominantly Monaluna fabrics that I ration. The quilting is a combination of free motion, walking foot and decorative stitches. It was fun to make and it’s nice to have a reminder of an enjoyable weekend.
No, you are not seeing double. After making an Ann Shaw poppy wall hanging for myself, I used the freezer paper templates to make a wall hanging for my sister-in-law. After purchasing the background fabric from Deb Messina, I had the perfect fabric to show off the poppies. Fun project!
