Bits & Pieces

Quilt show 2018 – PQG

Published on 04/11/18

Our guild had our biennial quilt show in March and it was so fun to visit the quilts I had worked on over the past two years.

This was our guild’s opportunity quilt that was designed and made by the three of us and then I had the opportunity to quilt it. It was hard to say good-bye but the lady that won it was so excited.

This quilt had special instructions when it came to me – “lots of feathers”. I am always drawn to quilts with white backgrounds – they always look so fresh.

This quilt was a quilt that was started about 30 years ago. I had so much fun quilting this for my friend Bernice. I had forgotten how big it was.

Cindy’s Quilt

Published on 03/17/18

Our monthly sew group have been working on this quilt for several months. Each month we work on projects that will be given to others. This beautiful quilt will be given to a wonderful lady that needs encouragement. Her husband had a stroke about a little over a year ago and she has become his caregiver as well as caring for her children. New attached image It has been awesome to work on this project. New attached image One of the ladies made a beautiful flanged binding to finish off this quilt. New attached image The quilting used 3 simple designs and turned out so well. New attached image

Caleb’s Quilt

Published on 02/26/18

This baby quilt was made by our sew group. It is for a sweet family that just had baby # 9. New attached image I do not normally meander a quilt but this baby was already born and I am loading a quilt that will take a few months to complete. New attached image The log-cabin blocks were started several years ago. I am so happy to have this UFO finished. I wish I had caught that the block setting was wrong before putting the borders on – we will just say that it makes it an one of a kind. New attached image I have also had this plaid backing for quite awhile – also perfect for this family as they own a small farm and the other boys love their cowboy boots. New attached image

Baby Rebekah’s Quilt

Published on 02/15/18

New attached image We had another “group” of babies born at church this year. this is another quilt that the Sew Group got to work on. I received a bundle of 5 inch squares in the mail and thought they would work well with white. New attached image Part of the purpose of the Sew Group is fellowship but the other part is teaching some ladies how to quilt. A few of them have sewing/quilting experience but most of them do not. One of the ladies brings her elementary aged daughter with her who loves to do anything with fabric, even use the sewing machine. For this project she traced all the leaf shapes onto the fusible web and then was able to arrange the border. New attached image New attached image One of the ladies started the machine appliqué during Sew Group and then ended up taking it home and finishing it for me. =) She had a few projects in mind that would need machine appliqué so she was thrilled to learn this technique. New attached image New attached image Since this was a first baby for this couple, I decided to make a matching white fleece blanket with a matching binding. This was a fun gift to give to this young couple. New attached image

Cena’s Quilt

Published on 02/06/18

I had the opportunity to work on another one of Cena’s quilts. She always gives me something fabulous to work on and this quilt was no exception. It also helps that the focus fabric is in my favorite color. New attached image I knew up front that this was going to be a “show quilt” and I wanted to push my design process. She let me do a double batting (80/20) which would make the quilting ‘Pop” and the appliqué shapes stand out as well. New attached image I did not get a picture of the whole quilt – I will post some after a show, but did get a lot of detail shots. We are considering this our first collaborative quilt. I work on it for about 3 months- every day that I was not working I was quilting. . New attached image New attached image I learned so much from this quilt. New attached image She always has really fun backs. New attached image New attached image
