I have been busy lately with piecing and, of course, quilting! Here are some photos of my recent projects.
My customer Connie contacted me about quilting this quilt for her. She does volunteer work and, as part of a Volunteer Thank You Event, there was going to be a drawing for this quilt. This quilt was impeccably pieced and it was a joy to quilt. Since I didn’t know if the quilt was going to a male or female and I got a more “modern” feel for the piecing, I kept the quilting simple with wavy lines. Click on the photo for a larger view.
I love the texture of this quilt and the wavy lines remind me of mountains and maybe ripples on water. I used Soft & Bright batting and Signature 100% cotton thread.
The Comfort of Psalms Quilt
My sister asked if I could make this quilt for her and of course, I said I would make it for her. She had purchased the pattern and fabric as a kit a while ago and was going to give it to a pastor at her church who was leaving. The piecing pattern is from Block Party Quilt Studio and it’s called The Comfort of Psalms pattern. (For information about this pattern Click Here)
This photo is the whole quilt hanging up on the clothesline. Click on any photo for a larger view.
Here is a close up of the quilting and the printed text panels.
And here is the back of the quilt. The light is coming through from the front of the quilt so you can see where the piecing is!
I am putting this quilt in the mail to my sister today. I can’t wait for her to see it in person!
I have been intrigued with Shadow Quilts for a while – I really like the almost 3-D look you can get with simple piecing. I have had some scraps that were cut for a simple quilt a LOOOONG time ago and after looking online and doing some thinking, I asked myself – why couldn’t I use the scraps to make a Shadow Quilt? And I did! It was so easy and it looks so good!
Is this one quilted yet? Noooo! But it will be – someday! Actually, I am thinking of donating it to Project Linus Quilts when it is quilted.
These quilts are addictive! I was looking through my fabric stash and found a cute dinosaur print and decided to make another Shadow Quilt! Because I didn’t put a border around the blocks, and the blocks are a single piece of fabric, this quilt was even easier and faster to make then the other quilt!
This quilt is finished and quilted with the wavy lines (like in the first quilt). This quilt has been given to a 2 year old little boy who LOVES it!
I have some “girly” fabric in my stash and I think I may make another Shadow Quilt and donate that one too!
