Here is the second in the series of Aboriginal wall hangings. Much to my delight, I found another quilting design that complimented the print of the fabric. Makes me want to plan a trip abroad to see what fabrics I could find.
It’s always exciting to have a new and different project. This is one of two wall hangings made from printed fabric purchased by my client on a trip to Africa. The backing is black quilted with an Aboriginal design in variegated thread. I can’t decide which side I like better; the front or the back.
The Road Home
Graduation T Shirt Quilt
2017 Designer Mystery
Gray Dot Sampler
Gray is such a great color for background fabrics. Just look at how the colors in the blocks just pop. Add the texture of the quilting and you have a quilt that is sure to delight!
Drysden Through Time
This started as a box of blocks and now it is a quilt to enjoy. The solid pieces on the back bring the quilting to life and the scrappy binding is simply charming.
Into the Woods
Large Fire Quilt
After receiving three fire quilts to give to his children, this customer was back with another bag of T-shirts to have a quilt made for himself. I used the same fabrics in the sashing and border and added patches to the border. My Innova longarm machine handled beautifully over the patches. This will be cherished for years to come.
Zoo Animals for Baby
Besides being so soft and cuddly, minke backings are incredible for showing the quilting patterns. This charming little baby quilt was a collaboration between a quilting friend and myself to give to a young couple that I work with, who are expecting their first child. So, in a sense, the front of the quilt was a gift from my girlfriend and the back was a gift from me.
Fire Retire Quilt
I had two requests when I made this quilt; make it warm and make it big. The t shirt blocks are cut as large as I could make them, and the red sashing is oversized. I added an extra layer of batting, and the extra benefit is how the stitches are so defined. Thank you for your service and happy retirement.
Lighthouse over the waves
This quilt has the most amazing hand applique work. I wanted to do echo quilting which is very traditional in Hawaiin quilt but first I had to break up the quilt into blocks with hand guided feather sashing. When it left me with set in triangles on the outsides, I ghosted in an outline of one of the applique pieces and echoed it. Now it makes me want a Hawaiian vacation.
