Here's what I've been working on this past week. The client was very happy with the quilt as it is a surprise gift for her son...I hope he enjoys and loves it too! I used tshirts (of course!) cotton fabrics, cotton backing, 1 layer cotton batting and a swirled pantograph pattern.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! Sue
Great news for this little lovely! Taking a Merit Award in the Lodi Quilt Show! Congrats!
Here's a customer quilt I recently completed. It is constructed from bridal/bridesmaids satins. ~45x80" Superior threads; Magnifico, Fantastico and Bottom Line, single layer poly batting supplied by the customer. I provided several hand guided free motion design examples and this is what she chose...I think it turned out pretty.
Just a couple of cute and quick things I did for my grandson's play room. I often overlook panels but they can be so adorable and they're great as comfort quilts. The bear rug was a pinterest success story. I just drew out a bear shape on faux fur and glued it down to craft felt. The ears, nose and button eyes made him come to life! :) The bear rug cost under $30, the panel, border fabric and backing cost ~$50.
I recently had the privilege of completing a quilt project for a family of a deceased quilter. Apparently, her quilting cache was significant and a bit overwhelming for the family in knowing what to do with it all. They contacted a Prairie Lakes Quilters guild member and after discussing options it was decided to have the guild members construct quilts and donate them to Project Linus and hospice. There were a few quilts in-progress which needed completion and the guild members decided to present these back to the family. It was one of those projects that I chose to complete. Adorable Churn-dash blocks, so bright and sunny in the colors, it just makes me smile. I added sashing/blocks and borders and free-motion quilted them. There were 50 blocks which would have made one huge! quilt, so instead I constructed 2 lap sized quilts.
The natural sun light was absolutely perfect on this picture day! Enjoy the quilting texture and the sunny disposition of the blocks. I know the family will appreciate seeing their loved one's quilt(s) completed.
Just finished the quilting on this one yesterday for a client in Texas. She'll be giving it away as a wedding gift and wanted to personalize it just a bit, so I added the recipients names with interlocking rings in the top border. Tons of feathers! Used Glide Military gold which is beautiful, but dare I say...I was tired of looking at the shine! and sneaked a little So Fine #50 cream into it!
