'Tis the Season - These are some of the designs from my book A Merry Little Christmas to Appliqué. Just put 'em all together and you've got a festive little quilt to hang on the wall during the holidays!
(And the scrap basket is still full) - Big thanks to Alex for the idea! Wish I could remember what date hers appeared in the blog. It was a great way to use up some scraps and also some orphan star blocks!
(Something) In the Sky With Diamonds - Made for my brother who admired my hollow cube sampler. It hasn't been gifted to him yet (Christmas 2010) - considering appliqueing some circles in the blue "sky".
(Who) Ordered Chaos (?) - This was an experiment is moving from one color to another and then another. And although the each individual block is somewhat chaotic, in the end all blocks were cut to a uniform size of 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" and assembled in an orderly 10 block by 10 block grid.
.ryan's quilt - I used the log cabin baby quilt which I found on the internet, it was delightful with little bears on it. I changed the colours and used disney characters which I embroidered on with my Brother machine.
1,000 Pound Therapists - This is the first time I've tried fusible applique and I really enjoyed it. I donated it to an auction that benefits Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian Center www.giantstepsriding.org
10 Year Delay - My first bargello - made with four panels. Made as part of a family challenge to try use up all Mom's crappy 70's 50/50 fabrics. Because of these fabrics, I waited to start quilting until 1990. =)
10-10-10 Table Runner - I adapted Joanie's acorn design to a wholecloth table runner for my in-laws anniversary on 10-10-10. The fabric is hand-dyed silk-cotton blend that I did. I quilted it with Superior's silk thread.
