A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR MY YOUNGEST SON
This was a pattern from Methodist Hill Quilt Studio that was very easy to piece while still being an eye catching pattern. I used a meandering pattern that I learned from the book Free-Motion Meandering: A Beginners Guide to Machine Quilting. This was the third quilt I FMQ'd on my domestic machine, and it's definitely my best yet.
Woo Pig SOOIE!
This was a quilt for my husband's aunt. She's a huge Razorbacks fan! I found a pattern I really liked on Connecting Threads, then I went on Etsy and found Razorback material in six different patterns. It was my first attempt at those tiny "nine patch" squares you see on the edges. I'm just very thankful that, when quilting, a lot of your mistakes are very likely to "quilt out". Meaning they become almost invisible once you get all of the quilting done.
My First Finished Quilt
When I first decided I'd like to learn to quilt, I went straight to my best friend Jenny over at Come Quilt. Her mother was a fabulous quilter (Sue Garman) and Jenny's love of quilting and attention to detail was exactly what I wanted in a teacher. She gave up many a Saturday to show me the ropes, and she has my endless appreciation. To get me started, she asked me to head over to Connecting Threads so I could pick out a beginner kit. I have been a lover of kits ever since.
My First Domestically Quilted Quilt
I knew I wanted to do my quilting on my domestic machine, but I was apprehensive about trying it out. I offered to make one for my niece, and she picked out this pattern. I asked her to go easy on me since it would be the first quilt I'd done "start to finish" on my machine. It really turned out well, though I have no desire to show you what the back looks like. That's where you can see all the mistakes.
A Christmas Gift For My Mom
This is the second quilt top I've ever made. Once I made one for myself, I knew I wanted to make one for my mom. I found a kit over at Connecting Threads and this is the end result. Saving it for 4 months so I could give it to her for her birthday was really hard! I'm not a patient person.
A Christmas Gift For My Oldest Son
Three days before Christmas I finally sat down and got this quilt bound, just in time to drape it over a new baseball net on Christmas morning. I'm definitely not wrapping it. The pattern is from Methodist Hill, the quilting was done by Jenny Arkinson at Come Quilt, and it really all turned out beautifully. This was a very easy pattern to make, even for a new quilter like myself.
My Finished Tops - But Unfinished Quilts
I'm so excited that this space is empty! Check back soon. I've got a dozen quilts to make, starting with one for my husband's cousin's wedding in April, so that project will begin after Christmas.
