1  Custom Quilting on Applique Quit- Happy Dance! in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: April 11, 2008 12:59:57 PM
I got it done!  This custom quilt finished and it will be delivered this afternoon.  I think she's gonna flip as she didn't have very high hopes for it.

I used McTavishing in the background of the applique blocks, flower petals in the blossoms, veins in the leaves. I used the applique vine in the outside border as the spine for my feathers.  Then I put piano keys behind the feathers to give them depth.  The outside border will be scalloped.   

It took way more time than I anticipated but it was worth it.

2  McTavishing- ouch! in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: March 30, 2008 02:54:06 PM
I spent a few hours doing McTavishing in the background of an applique quilt.  Each block took about 30 minutes.  There were 12 blocks.  Ouch!!! My neck and upper back hurt!  I'm planning on adding veins in the leaves and petals in the flowers but I needed to get the background out of the way.  I'll post more pictures when I make a bit more progress!

3  Jelly Roll Strip Quilt- Done! in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: March 30, 2008 02:50:39 PM
I just pulled this off the frame yesterday.  It is a strip quilt made from a moda jelly roll and I quilted it for a woman in my guild.  She didn't like the top at all but I think she'll love it now that it is quilted.  I didn't think I'd be able to work on it until next week so she'll be surprised when I get it back to her on Thursday!

4  Charity Quilt for foster teen program in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: March 19, 2008 07:21:51 AM
This quilt will go to to a teen in the foster care program in St. Louis, MO.  It was pieced by a friend and I got to quilt it.  Didn't she do a great job with the batiks?

I quilted it with different sized dahlias and meandering leafy vines.

5  Featheration in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: December 12, 2007 06:02:09 AM
I picked up a new to me pantograph from called Featheration at the Houston Quilt show. 

I'm using it on five wholecloth quilts for a commercial client.  It is turning out so beautiful so I had to share!

I love the movement it gives to just plain ol' fabric.

6  Baby Bonnets in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: December 01, 2007 02:26:11 PM
I just pulled this off the frame and I love the playfulness of the blue bonnets dancing across the quilt top.  It is for a lucky little infant angel who is recovering from heart surgery right now.  I quilted it for his aunt.  She's got me working on a batik quilt right now with metallic thread.  I started calling it names so I'm taking a break from it for tonight. Cool

7  Re: My first quilt - so naturally some questions in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by KyTriplets on: November 09, 2007 07:01:15 PM
I messed around with the pattern you selected. It looks pretty easy.  I would go for the single pieced sashing and not the more complicated sashing.

Here's the block you selected and it is about 58 x 76.  If you want the yardage I can post that.  I put it in a French Provincial palate.

However, if this is your first quilt, I would recommend using an actual pattern from a book or single pattern company.  Your local fabric shop or (even better) quilt shop, would have TONS to choose from. 

I say this only to keep the frustration level low for you.  I mentioned the Allegro pattern on another post.  It would be a good easy first quilt.

8  Quilt for a Cure in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: October 25, 2007 02:34:06 PM
I pulled this off the frame today.  It is a quilt top made by the customers of my local quilt shop.  They pieced it and I quilted it.  The top is part of the Quilt for a Cure program and will be auctioned off to raise money for research.

I've got one more pink beauty to finish for them.

9  Baby Nines Happy Dance! in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: October 22, 2007 09:07:18 AM
Happy dance with me!  It is done!
I pulled this off the frame over the weekend.  A friend of mine did the top- the pattern is called Baby Nines.  I kinda went crazy with the quilting.

Hopefully you can see the freehand feathers in the corners.  They were FUN to do!  I also liked the heart petal motif in all the white blocks in the center.

I'm quite please with how it turned out and I'm sure the new mommy who gets this heirloom will love it too.

10  Sampler quilt with an Amish flavor in Quilting: Completed Projects by KyTriplets on: October 22, 2007 08:59:56 AM
I just pulled a sampler quilt off my machine.  I'm using it to show the different quilting designs I can do in blocks and borders. 

Each block has a different motif and each border is also different.

Now I've just got to bind it!
