“Farie Garden” was one of many UFO’s. I am trying to clean out my sewing room. “Unicorn Magic” was made for a co-worker’s daughter.
“Blueberry Fields” was made from the Quarterly Winnings I won a few years back.
This is a PCP (previous century project). It was begun as a demo for a friend who was teaching at the Hancock Fabric stores in our area. She was teaching the Spool Block and this was my alternate layout using that block.
This one large Log Cabin block was begun as a QAL (Quilt Along) with Carolyn Friedlander. I had been looking for inspiration as to a way to use 4 fat quarters I had been gifted. In my quilt I’ve attempted to disguise the block by mixing up my placement of darker and lighter fabrics and have some fabrics turn the corner or reappear in an unexpected place.
My grandson, Oscar, turned 8 in April. Because he is the youngest member of the family and the only one without a quilt, I was determined to have this done for his birthday. I used the pattern, “Queen Takes Knight” by Robin Ruth Designs using her Fat Robin Rulers. A couple of variations were made to the pattern. This has ALL his favorite colors in it. Teresa Koster quilted it wonderfully.
Circle of Love is a wedding gift. The bride and groom requested the single ring pattern in grays with some blue. It’s a queen- 84×122 inches. Beautifully quilted by Teresa Koster. Label made by Nancy Watts. Pieced with Sew Kind of Wonderful quick curve tool so no inset seams!
Just batiks! While thinking about the Big Gray wedding quilt, I decided I needed to piece a quilt of many colors. 48×61 – great couch quilt. Quilting by Teresa Koster as my domestic machine objects to quilting batik intersections.
I was asked to make a T-Shirt quilt for a friend’s grandson who graduates from high school this year. It took me awhile to get into the process but ended up really liking the finished quilt. Needing a few more blocks I ended up making the paper pieced sports blocks to include.
This is my sewing and Beach Belle. One of my favorite designers is Tone Finnanger from Norway. Her line is called Tilda. A website I follow recently had a series of blog posts on making her signature dolls and I took this opportunity to learn to make them. In addition I taught myself to knit to make the sweater! Nothing like starting out with an advanced project as your first attempt at something!!
This pattern is called All Tangled Up. I made this quilt as a wedding gift. For a young lady I’ve known her entire life. Her favorite colors are red and her fiancé’s favorite colors are green. I did not want it to look like a Christmas quilt.
