This is a homework assignment for my Complex Curves workshop with Patricia Belyea. I am struggling with how to quilt this piece. 22″ x 29″ Dragonflies in my garden. UPDATE: I was able to complete the hand quilting on the piece I submitted earlier.
This is my Combo Quilt for my church’s 2022 high school graduates. We make them each a quilt and I use the left over fabric to make a combo quilt that stays at the church. With the 5 graduates the five pointed star came to mind quite quickly. While I was working on the quilt I kept thinking of this group as shining stars or all stars. It’s a wonderful mission project.
This is a paper pieced pattern that I’ve been wanting to try for quite a while. When Natalie asked me to make a sample quilt using her new line of black, white and gray fabrics (with Marcia Derse solid coordinating colors) I thought this pattern would be perfect.
I don’t usually purchase a lot of batik fabrics so I’m always excited when Natalie is the guest designer for Windham’s batiks and she asks me to make a sample quilt. I tried to pick a very modern pattern so that her “look book” would show the wide range of uses for batiks. This ended up being a 2 sided quilt because I used Marcia Derse’s Art History fabric panel on the back.
The layout for this quilt is my design. For the 98 4″ foundation paper pieced blocks I used blocks designed by Alison Glass, Carol Doak, Pam Raby and Electric Quilt. For each block, except the letters, there is one with a white background and one with black.
This was made from a Charm Pack from the early days of those gems when quilt shops cut their own. They were so successful with this idea that fabric manufactures started creating them for us. The 6″ squares ranged in size from 6″ to 5 1/4″ hence each had to be trimmed to a common size.
I create a lot of thread tails. From this bowl I created what I have named “A Tree of Thread Tales” and a thread tail table topper.
This quilt is 68×68 The pattern is called all tangled up. It has Hobbs 8020 batting and Minky on the back. I created this for my niece that is getting married on the 25th of this month.
Made – Winter 2022
Pattern – #164 Wooded Whimsy. Coriander Quilts by Cory Yoder
Fabric – Cozy Christmas by Lori Holt
I thought this was such a cute quilt pattern. I had purchased all the Cozy Christmas line and decided this pattern would be perfect for it.
Had a hard time making the stars. Very small.
Number 11 and 12 UFO completed!
Two dear quilting friends insisted I purchase this ‘Wild Poppy’ kit when they discovered it on sale. I liked the panels – thought they would be fun to quilt. Changed the sashing a little. 57×73 inches. Backing- the poppies. Quilted with variegated King Tut on top and deep red in bobbin on my domestic machine. Used 80/20 Hobbs batting. Gift to my sister-in-law who loves red and poppies.
I have been making Toy and Joy quilts and decided to go a little larger. 36×42. The individual patterns from Hartman make fun quilts.
