Worked on this delightful quilt today! Pieced by Carolanne, the fabrics are Carolyn Freidlander, the thread is Superior Omni in Silver, the batting is Hobbs 80/20 and the pantograph is “Water World” from Willow Leaf Studio. Hand guided quilting.
The beautiful kaleidoscope quilt took Ellen 6 years to piece! And she did such a good job of it! All batiks (front and back)! Swirled Feather pantograph (by Beany Girl Quilts), Hobbs 80/20 batting and Superior Omni thread in Sesame Seed.
This one was special, and one that I made. It was a gift for my nephew Matt and his new bride Alyssa! The quilt pattern is from a magazine and the quilt is 101″ x 101″. The pantograph I used is called Splat by Anne Bright Designs. I used Kona Silver and Kona Navy, the backing fabric is Benartex Vine Silver/Grey from Backside Fabrics (great customer service btw), thread is Omni Royal by Superior and the batting is my favorite Hobbs 80/20. I really love this quilt and I hope the recipients do, too! I’m hoping to get a picture of… Read more »
I finished up this beauty by Eileen today — Lots of straight line quilting in the white areas and a flowery fill in the brightly colored fabric squares! Very fun to work on. Hobbs 80/20 batting, Superior Omni thread in Orange Peel and Natural White.
Quilt pieced by René. Quilted with Superior Omni Thread in medium grey, Hobbs 80/20 batting (single layer), Bauhaus pantograph by Urban Elementz. This sucker is HUGE! 107″ x 122″! Each quilting pass takes me almost 20 minutes! And on a side note, I had no idea a tetanus booster would make my arm so sore the next day! Happy quilting! Lisa
Labyrinth Walk Quilt by Deb. Custom quilted with Superior Omni Threads in black, wintergreen and aqua. Hobbs 80/20 batting (single layer). Quilting includes straight line quilting in the dark green and black blocks (and borders) and assorted pebbles in the light green.
I signed up for the Modern Quilt Guild‘s swap last year. It was in September or October, but since I’m deadline oriented (procrastinator) I didn’t think about it again until last month when I got the “penultimate nag email”. I had an idea of what I wanted to make, but wasn’t sure and quiet frankly my creativity level is at a pretty low point right now. So Yesterday I went into my sewing room and started to think. As Pooh would say, “think, think, think” while tapping his cranium. My friend Susie was working on a really cool one (follow… Read more »
I recently had a customer drop off three quilts and she wanted me to attach the binding to to the front of each one for her. As she was giving me the tops and backings, she handed me these three thread spools that had fabric on them. I must have looked puzzled, because she said, “haven’t you seen this before?” I told her no, what are they? Binding spools!! I don’t know about you, but when I’m putting binding on my quilts I roll the binding up and sit it in my lap. It usually unwinds, falls on the floor,… Read more »
I am not. That’s not to say I don’t put out quality work, I just won’t sit there and tear out a seam 45 times and re-sew it until it’s perfect. Not gonna do it. Which brings me to this blog post. I have a granddaughter now (Elsa), she was born on December 27 of last year and of course she’s the best granddaughter ever. Last month we spent Thanksgiving with my son (Erik) and daughter-in-law (Sarah) and of course the baby Elsa. Erik asked me if I could send his and Sarah’s Christmas stockings to them and I immediately… Read more »
