Alt Gravity Quilt

Saturday, August 31, 2019

I'm a little behind on posting this, but here are some close ups of my Alt Gravity quilt that won a couple ribbons at last years Austin Area Quilt Guild show, including Show Chair's Choice.  This quilt was based on Jaybird Quilts Gravity pattern.  I really enjoyed making the blocks, but decided on an alternative layout and background fabric for it.  I had a pack of low volume newsprint fabrics in my stash for quite some time, and when I placed them next to the bright colors of the Gravity blocks, knew I had found their purpose.  I love the way the quilt turned out.  

Claire's Glam Clam Quilt

The layout of Claire's Glam Clam quilt inspired the design of the quilting. I used the low volume clams to create a continuous quilting pattern that hides behind colorful clams. It was so much fun to quilt this and I'm in love with the way it turned out.

Heather's Quilt

Heather pieced this amazing large scale quilt!  I loved the idea of taking patterns I would normally use on an heirloom quilt and blow them up in scale.  I really love how it turned out! 

Mary's Quilt

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this quilt!  It was such fun to work on.  Mary's amazing piecing job made this a great candidate for heirloom quilting.

Here is a fantastically pieced sampler quilt from Jane.  There was lots of opportunity for heirloom quilting in the yellow background.  It turned out lovely.

Teacher Appreciation Time

Thursday, June 01, 2017

The end of the school year brings the end of my daughter's time in pre-school.  I made these two quilts for her amazing teachers for all the work they've done preparing her for the big move to Kindergarten next year.  The pattern is based on Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy forest pattern.  I quilted them both with a wood theme - one a horizontal wood-grain pattern and the other a cross-grain pattern.

It was such fun to quilt this beautiful quilt made by Dawn.  I love the mix of feathers, crosshatch, and curves.  It turned out so lovely.
