I made this quilt for my daughter for her birthday. Her living room is red with black and white accents. I got most of the squares from a charm pack swap here on Craftster from MareMare. I pieced it and quilted it by machine. Don't look too closely because I am just learning the machine quilting thing. (I outline stitched it). My daughter loved it. Here's the back.
I posted about this quilt in December when I finished it. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283186.msg3208178#msg3208178 I got so many wonderful comments, I wanted to share my accomplishment with you all. This year I decided to enter it in our state fair (KY). I didn't expect to win anything cause I had entered a quilt a couple of years ago and didn't win. But I was hoping I would at least get an honorable mention. Imagine my pride when I found out not only did I win a blue ribbon but I was honored to have my quilt placed in the glass showcase. Thanks for all your encouragement.
This baby quilt was started by a fellow crafster from Australia. She decided after piecing and quilting one square, she really didn't like it very much and offered it to the first taker. I am the lucky recipient. I think this quilt is adorable. I finished quilting the squares in the same manner she did. I quilted around the border and added a binding. I think the finished product turned out great!
This is a quilt I made for my latest grandbaby. It's from a pattern from Eleanor Burns. I added the yoyos because the white squares where just blank. I pieced by machine and quilted it by hand. I'm not brave enough yet to try machine quilting.
I decided that I always make quilts for everyone else, so I wanted to make one for me. Problem was, I have a king size bed. And I chose grandmother's flower garden, so I pieced it by hand. After I had it all pieced, I decided to quilt it by hand, too. Once I finished quilting, I needed to make the binding, and since I had done everything else by hand I figured I would put the binding on by hand, too. So, every single stitch is done by my tired fingers. I love the results!
These are my fabrics. I am so happy to be included in this swap. I am sending them out tomorrow. Sure hope this new grandbaby is a girl cuz if not, one of the other granddaughters will enjoy the new quilt.
