My first quilt! It's a double-nine patch block, out of a jaguar print and cream.
I took a class at my local fabric store, The Cutting Table. I pieced the top, took it back to the shop to have it quilted,
then bound the edge.
Here is a close up, I think you can see the jaguar print better. I adore animal prints!
After making this quilt, I discovered that I like piecing the tops, and binding the quilts,
but I really dislike the actual quilting part!
Here is a little doll quilt that I made for Terri's daughter, Isabelle, for Christmas.
I did quilt this one myself -- not too bad for my first time! ~G~
For Terri's other daughter, Sarah, I made a tic-tac-toe gameboard.
My current, never ending project. I am making two bottle quilts -- one for each son. At
first, I made the top with 30 bottles.
After laying the top on the bunk beds, I decided that was too small, so I ripped it apart, and made it with 42 bottles.
Here it is with 42 bottles. I still think it is skimpy, but I am NOT going to rip it apart again!
So, I'm trying to decide how to make it a bit bigger, by adding borders.
It's on the
back burner right now.
This is the Holly Tree
Skirt from Thimbleberries. I found a nice sheer burgundy ribbon to tie it closed.
This is a block I made for a memory quilt that was coordinated by Paula, on
in memory of the tragic events on September 11, 2001. It was my first attempt at drafting my own quilt block pattern.
It was to be 12.5 inches square, but after all my sewing and
ripping and ripping and sewing,
it actually ended up being 12.375 inches square.
I re-did the points a few times.
This quilt top is called Chinese Lanterns, and is from the
magazine Australian Patchwork & Quilting.
I just need to buy the backing fabric.
A close up of the blocks. I'm thinking to have it quilted with red thread, and to also
bind it in red.
(note -- I finished this quilt, just need to get a photo)
