Quilts I Have Made

Quilts I’ve Made

To start building the Finished Quilt/Project Gallery, I am adding pictures of a couple of quilts that I have made.  I will be adding more quilts as we go along.  Some made by our talented customers and some others I have made.  Plus new ones as they are done.

Exhibit #1

I used farmer’s market collection to make this fruits and veggie quilt.  I used a pattern out of Jane Hardy Miller “French Braid Transformation” book , called “The Wave”.  I increased the size to a king size bed quilt and added borders.

This is the quilt I made for my son for his birthday

Exhibit # 2

I pieced together this bright and cheery quilt top for our local quilt group.  The jelly roll strips were donated to the group.  I volunteered to piece it together for a fundraiser project.  It was my own design from the strips I was given to use.  Then I handed it off to another member for the quilting.  It was a lap size quilt.  It turned out really cute :), and the group that received it for their auction, loved and appreciated it.

Exhibit #3

This is a quick, easy and fun way to use a panel.  I made this wall quilt for one of my granddaughters (the cat lover), for Christmas a couple of years ago.  I added borders around the panel and machine quilted in the ditch and around the squares outlines.   I used unbleached muslin for the backing.  I did the binding in the contrasting black for pop.  Instead of making a label for the back, I wrote on the backing with fabric markers.  I don’t know that I will do that again.  They bled a bit and I don’t know how many washing it will survive.
