This was one of the first tops I ever pieced. After being put away for a couple years and rediscovering it, I realized it didn’t need much work to be completed. The patterned fabric was all purchased at Beverly’s a fabric store chain in California. The backing is from JoAnn’s with a few leftover scraps. It is quilted in organic random lines with a dusty rose thread and mostly bound with a red knit print.
Completed 15 December.
I used this tutorial to make this skirt but used bias binding and rounded corners. The prints are all from JoAnn’s and it’s reversible. It’s quilted in a stippled pattern with white thread and bound in a white on red polka dot.
Completed 24 November.
This began as a much different quilt which I hated almost as soon as I started sewing the pieces together. It languished in a box for a couple years until I rediscovered it and decided to cut it apart and make what would become, one of my favorite quilts. I didn’t have enough fabric to make it a nine patch-only quilt so I put the blocks I had on point, added a couple borders, and backed it in solid black. It is quilted with organic lines through the blocks, leaves in the black triangles, and a vine pattern in the border with black thread and it bound also bound in black. It was given to my friend Mandi in Minneapolis and her new husband George and they both loved it.
Completed 26 October.
This is also a favorite of mine, made for my friend and old roommate Bonnie and her first baby. I think the fabrics were from my stash and include Denyse Schmidt and a rare Heather Ross. It is backed with a red knit printed fabric and a couple scraps, it’s quilted in a stippling pattern with white thread, and bound in Katie Jump Rope’s daisy bouquet.
Completed 13 October.
This quilt is made of the scraps from our bed quilt for my college roommate Noelle and her first baby who live in Kenya. I sewed the various sized scraps into simple offset strips and backed it with a green flannel. It’s quilted in a spiral pattern in each coin with grey thread and stippling in the background with white thread and bound in Belle Oxford stripe.
Completed 13 October.
This is our bed quilt. It’s made of mostly Amy Butler’s Lotus collection, some Joel Dewberry and a couple other unknowns. The piecing was simple but I hand quilted it, a year long undertaking that was totally worth it. It’s backed in JD’s Chestnut Branches in turquoise, quilted a quarter inch inside each brick with grey thread, and bound in AB’s full moon dot in yellow.
Completed 22 July.
