Teresa Koster did a beautiful job of quilting my jewel-toned quilt.
This is a collaboration quilt. The white and purple blocks were sewn by an unknown quilter and donated to the Elsie Stuhr Center sale. Rosalie Movius pieced the top with left over fabrics from her stash. The quilt was long arm quilted by Teresa Koster and the binding was hand sewn by Judy Turnbull. This labor of love will be a house warming gift for Judy’s son’s and wife’s new home.
The first quilt I made for a sick friend. It is a disappearing nine patch, which leaves opposite blocks spinning the opposite way.
So the second one I made with those. It will be for my son…he’ll be thrilled. He’d rather have a toy to go with his boat or RV.
This quilt had a hard beginning. Before I go to retreat, I cut my projects because my brain cannot cut and carry conversation at the same time. The quilt pieces were cut, laid on a tray and ready for retreat. Unfortunately it fell out of my car and went sliding down my street, finally stopped by the curb. There’s a fabric placement mistake because piece labels got shuffled. Teresa Koster quilted it.

Here’s my latest. Machine embroidered handkerchiefs for birthday presents. The patterns are from a collection called Harriet’s Hankies from Custom Keepsakes.

Half-Square Triangle Quilt for Cares Northwest
This quilt kit was a birthday gift from my daughter. It’s 75×92 so my daughter knew it would keep me busy. The stem and leaves are turned edge. It’s quilted on my domestic machine with a variety of quilting designs. The 1/4 inch borders taught by Marcia and Teresa at our quilt college a few years ago are perfect – thanks ladies for the instructions! A future birthday gift for my daughter- maybe?
