|All the hankies were fused to the background fabric, and grouped together in clusters of 4 "blocks". Sashing strips to match the border around each block of hankies.|
|I love this quilt. I love Asian fabrics, but never seem to use them. Simply quilted with the "Oriental Clouds" panto, and thread that just about perfectly matches the background. This was you get texture but not in your face "look at the quilting."|
I believe that this one goes to Ann's son, but may be mistaken on that.
The pinwheels blocks are made up of stuff from the stash. The outer border is a coordinate that came with the initial panel from the quilt shop in Weiser, Idaho.
Another quilt for the police. This one is made up of squares that were cut at 2", so they end up being 1.5" squares when they are stitched. Really fun to play with the two different fabrics that make up the cross, then the just random for the background. Lots and lots of memories in this quilt As I was quilting it I would try to remember the original project that the fabric was used in, but there are just too many to remember them all. Most fun was using up to finish this quilt. Grandma Pearl would be so proud. Used up a bunch of squares, pulled the borders and backing from my stash, and all of the black binding was already made, just needed to be stitched together to make it long enough.
|Isn't this a sweet idea? Leigh took her granddaughter's baby clothes, and made a quilt out of them!|
|I don't know why but this rainbow striped onsie makes me happy to just to look at it!|
I had to ask. These are the footies cut off of her rompers. Above and below are two glittery headbands because every girl needs some sparkle.
|I love to make and quilt baby quilts. So fast, and so fun.|
|This one is so perfect for the new parents as mom is a Marine Biologist. All done with ocean animals, and quilted with the "Ocean View" panto. Shells, starfish, even a seahorse or two.|
|This is a fun quilt that Delores made for herself. I don't know how many she has made, but FINALLY, one for her.|
Delores also foundation pieced all of these fabrics to muslin squares to keep them from fraying, or stretching. Makes the quilt extra heavy, and cozy.
It's also fun to find fabrics in other people's quilts that I have in my stash as well. Gives me a chance to play "remember"
