Lynne's Quilt One More Time!

This is a posting of a quilt I blogged about on 1-11-16 called Lynne's quilt. Donna took it home and put the binding on and then washed it and what a difference it made with the washing on how it puffed up and looks old timey! WOW!

McKenna's T-shirt Graduation Quilt

Heather is graduating from high school this spring and here is her t-shirt quilt showing all the events and fun things that she has participated in throughout her high school years! 

McKenna's Pano 001 was the quilting pattern.

Toca Orchid was the thread color used in the quilting.

This girl was in everything!



She can take this quilt with her next fall for her college dorm!

Love this batik!

The batik backing fabric, how neat!

Avery's Quilt

 Mary made this quilt for her granddaughter, Avery! Avery helped pick out the fabrics as they are redecorating her room! Avery is anxiously awaiting this quilt that has her name quilted on  it!

Teatime Turquoise was the thread choice.

This quilt has a beautiful selection of fabrics!

Avery Flower Pano 001 was the quilting pattern.

This is a very soft and smooth feeling quilt and Avery will curl up in it and be very happy!

I love this fabric!

The silky soft backing which really shows the quilt pattern.

Cheryl's Dear Jane in the Islands Quilt

This is what Cheryl has been working on for months! She's an avid paper-piecer and is an expert at it! Her small applique is exquisite and this has been a huge undertaking but anyone who dares to attempt the Dear Jane Quilt is ambitious to say the least! A job well done and what a feat!

Take a look at all these different blocks. There were 169  4 1/2 inch blocks in this quilt plus all the border triangles!

The blocks were quilted with Bubbles Everywhere Sq 003.

Flag Blue thread was used.

It's hard to pick a favorite block!

Notice the color placement, see the first picture, for an added pattern.

Amazing collection of patterns.

So nice!

The border which I used a couple of custom patterns on these.

Now that this quilt is done, I wonder what she's going to do with all that spare time???

The corner blocks.

Carolyn's Metro Rings Quilt

This is what Carolyn claims as her "Big Girl" quilt, a challenge to herself and a job well done! Is this gorgeous or what??

She had me custom quilt it with a collection of different patterns. Click on the pictures to get a closer look.

Pigskin was the thread color.

The quilt is called Metro Rings and it's a Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern.

I used Metro Waves on the arcs, the center was done with a Pearl hatch DWR pattern.

The melons were a Pearl hatch melon pattern, too.

Wonderful job, Carolyn!

The marvelous backing!

Here is a closer picture with the sun shining on it to create the light and shadows that really show the quilting.

Sarah's Quilt

Delores pieced this huge quilt for her granddaughter, Sarah! She will be one happy girl when she gets this beautiful quilt! How happy is this quilt?

The colors are so strong and they all flow together in a delightful way!

Sticky Buns was the quilting pattern and just made it jump with movement!

Magic Magenta was the thread used on this quilt.

With the sun shining on it, it just makes the colors more vibrant.

And these borders are incredible with the quilt, a batik print with all the colors included.

The wonderful backing with even movement in the print!

Delores's Botanical Table Runner

This table runner, made by Delores, is so neat! It's about 58" long  by 19", so I could not get a good picture of the whole thing, but it's made with a collection of batiks that are amazing together. Then  after looking through my multitude of patterns, she looked at the "blown dandelion" pattern and thought hmmmmm..... and I was dancing inside because nobody would ever choose that pattern to use and when she said OK, go for it, I was jumping for joy because take a look at these pictures, click on them to get a closer look and this pattern is so cool! 

Dandelion Pano was the quilting pattern.

Creek Bed was the thread choice.

This definitely is on my list to make!

Woodsy and botanical at it's best! She is binding it with the blackish batik, nice!

Her great backing choice.
