August 10, 2020 – Team Spirit!

 
 

Even though football season is not normal for 2020, there’s no reason a person can’t have team spirit. The customer who made this chevron quilt is a fan of Nebraska football. The combination of Husker printed fabrics and the solid grays and blacks are a great tribute to the team. The backing is a red minky fabric, which really shows the quilted design. The quilt was stitched with a silver gray thread using the Husker Football design by Debra Geissler (Designs by Deb). Great quilt to cozy up in beside the fireplace, and maybe even watch a little football some day.

Cock-a-doodle-doo! If you have fond memories of a farm lifestyle, this quilt is for you. This table topper size quilt is pieced using fabrics with roosters, chicken wire, barn siding, etc. You can almost hear the roosters crow! It was stitched with a putty colored thread using a meandering stipple design.

 

August 5, 2020 – Scrappy Box in a Box

 
 

This is another great use of stash fabrics. This box in a box quilt was pieced entirely with scraps/remnants in the customer’s stash, which included hers and hand-me-down fabrics. The backing was a minky fabric with sleepy time words. The quilt was stitched with a light pink thread using a meandering stipple design. Very cute quilt!

July 24, 2020 – Baby Clothes Pinwheels Memory Quilt

 
  

Memory quilts can be made from several items – t-shirts, canvas, uniforms, etc. This priceless quilt was pieced with baby clothes (onesies, shirts, pants, etc.). There is a moon panel in the center surrounded by pinwheels made of clothing and appliqued emblems from the same clothes. The recipient loves horses and unicorns, so the backing is a nice touch. The binding (not shown) is a black satin, which kids love to feel when curling up with a quilt. It was stitched with light gray thread using the Star and Moon design by Sue Schmieden (Urban Elementz).
