MPS Inspirations Round 12

Sewing Supplies


Bette King

Teresa Koster did a beautiful job of quilting my jewel-toned quilt.Bette Jewel Tones


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.Labor of Love

The first quilt I made for a sick friend. It is a disappearing nine patch, which leaves opposite blocks spinning the opposite way. Disappearing Nine Patch 1

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.Disappearing Nine Patch 2

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.Retreat Quilt

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

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?Gift Quilt

  4. Thank YOU! Each of your quilts are a true inspiration and so inspiring to see. From gifts for family & friends to donations, I’m thrilled that you’ve shared.

  5. It’s so nice to see everyone’s projects. I guess the silver lining to all of this is the ability to zoom in on the details! Miss all of you!!!
