HOME OF AN AWARD WINNING QUILTER -
This is a journal of many of the quilts I've made - lots of t-shirt quilts and memory quilts. If you want to see a specific type of quilt, there is a list of "labels" down the right side that will take you to what you want to see.
Jane is soon to be a grandma to twin girls, so she made these baby quilt tops for me to quilt and bind for her. They are made from Japanese fabrics. The first two are one piece of fabric and have a double wool batting so they are super fluffy and will be warm for winter. They are both bound with the fabric from the backing.
1st winter quilt front and back:
close up of front fabric:
Second winter quilt front and back:
daisies on the front
Close up of daisy fabric. I outlined all the purple daisies with a meander to connect them:
The second two are light seersucker and flannel for summer use. The front and back are identical.
Pink baby quilt:
I traced the swirls with a meaner between them, and outlined the roses in the side panels.
This one is bound with a white print fabric.
Blue baby quilt:
I meandered from flower to flower and traced the white centers. I copied that pattern in the blue flannel at the bottom, and again outlined the roses in the side panels.
This one is bound with the blue flannel.
Pat and I made these stars from recycled Goodwill shirts. Everything on the front is from the shirts. Our guild has a Quilt of Valor sew day each month, and we worked on them there. This will be donated to the Quilts of Valor program. This quilt measures 63 x 74.
Two different colors for the borders
I quilted a ribbon into each point of the stars with line dancing in the neutral areas
the same quilting in the blue stars. The red/white/blue thread shows up well.
Lisa and a friend each made this quilt. They are both the same, except the space fabric in the background is a little different in each one. They wanted a simple stitch in the ditch with some "swirly spacey things" in the background.
Maria and I first connected through the Quilts of Valor program. She pieced a top and it was sent to me for quilting. See it here. She liked what I did, so she has sent me two of her own tops to do. This is the first one. I love the fabrics she chose from the Stonehenge line. This is obviously a patriotic quilt, but I'm not sure if Maria is using as a Quilt of Valor or not. It is 66 x 82.
I quilted curved lines in the star sections, with an 8-pointed star in the middle of each star. There are red stars and blue stars, and I did them both the same:
I'm crazy for feathers, so I did 2 pairs going in opposite directions in the alternating blocks. This way there is no top or bottom to the designs in the finished quilt.
The borders have the same pattern - but they mirror each other:
