May 17, 2019 – You Are My Sunshine
One of our customers requested a graduation quilt for her daughter using the Sunshine panel by Timeless Treasures. To enlarge the quilt, a fourth border was added to the Bevels quilt design by Mountainpeek Creations. The theme of all of the fabrics centered around bees. The backing was pieced placing random fussy-cut squares from fabric containing bees and “bee” words. The quilt was stitched with gray thread using the Daphany design by Anne Bright Designs.
April 12, 2019 – Log Cabin Jewel Tones
This beautiful log cabin jewel tones quilt was made as a wedding gift for the customer’s son and daughter-in-law. Her son really likes red (for Nebraska), so she used a lot of red fabrics for the centerpiece on the backing, which is surrounded by inspirational words on off-white fabric. The quilt was stitched with soft silver variegated thread using the Pearl Swirl design by Kristin Hoftyzer (Intelligent Quilting).
April 4, 2019 – I Heart You Baby Quilt
This adorable baby quilt was made by the customer for her soon-to-be granddaughter. A medium pink thread was used for stitching. Each “conversation bubble” was stitched with a crosshatch in the center heart and surrounded with a feather design. The dark sashing was stitched with multi-sized button flowers and then filled in with a meandering stitch. What a wonderful family keepsake.
March 30, 2019 – Star Wars
The customer made this quilt for her grandson who really likes the Star Wars movies and characters. The quilt was stitched with off-white thread using the Star Wars design from Designs by Vickie. The fabric highlighted the newer Star Wars characters, while the quilting design included characters from the original movie. The customer’s grandson was thrilled with his gift. Great job, Grandma K!
March 28, 2019 – Log Cabin Bear Claw
This beautiful log cabin bear claw quilt provided the perfect opportunity for winter themed designs. The pine trees were echo stitched and then three sizes of a tree without a trunk were added inside. The flying geese borders were stitched with the Cactus Flower Flying Geese design by Pam Clarke (Home Stitches). The dark sections of each log cabin were stitched with the Yuletide triangle block 1 design by Jessica Schick (Digi-Tech). The red centers of each log cabin were stitched with a pine cone. The bear claw blocks were stitched as follows: a bear in each square, echo stitch in the triangular points of the claw, a star in the center, and Garden Bunny curved cross hatch design by Donna Kleinke (One Song Needle Arts) in the sashing between claws. The off-white background was stitched with individual snowflakes/8-point stars and pine trees using light beige thread.
