Not A Quilt: Andrea’s Placemats

My daughter made these placemats and napkins as a wedding gift. I just love them. A little elegant, a little whimsical:pcmts2

The lining is quite clever. She used some “blockout” fabric – the stuff that’s used as a drapery liner.  It’s got just enough body for this application.  She got everything at JoAnn’s.

Nancy’s Baby Quilt

Nancy brought me this sweet baby quilt for an all-over meander. I love how these soft colors flow!


I used Invisafil on the top, and Bottom Line on the bottom. Here’s a closeup of some of the blocks:

Kathy’s Tradewinds Quilt

Kathy made this Tradewinds quilt (pattern here) for her friend, who loves, loves, loves purple. And purple she is gonna get!

This is the first quilt I’ve done with Quilter’s Dream 70/30 batting. I really liked working with it. I did feathers all over the main part of the quilt, using an Invisafil thread:


She added a wide border at the bottom of the quilt; I quilted some swirling feathers there, using Glide thread:


And here’s the finished quilt, draped over the landing:

Amy’s lap quilt

Amy made this lap quilt from her stash of Civil War reproduction fabrics. I used 2 layers of an 80/20 batting, and Invisafil thread. I did feather wreaths:


And some fun stuff in the center squares (ignore those threads!):

Amy’s piecing is impeccable.

Ready to Quilt!

After 23 years of quilting on my Bernina 1030 (love that machine), I am moving up to an A-1 longarm.  I now have a studio in the basement (thanks, honey!) with a lovely lavender wall.

Brand New Studio

I like to piece quilts, but my true love is quilting. I am really looking forward to quilting for others!
