February 28, 2019 – Stars Table Topper

This square table topper is a beautiful demonstration of incorporating stars, log cabins, squares, and triangles in one project. There were a total of 29 stars in three different sizes and 20 log cabin blocks in the borders. The log cabin blocks were quilted using the Fondant design by Jessica Schick (Urban Elementz). The center of the stars were quilted using an eight-leaf button flower and the star tips were stitched in the ditch replicating a triangle. The checker board squares were stitched with diagonal lines. The inner border triangles were quilted with the Snapdragon design by Patricia Ritter (Urban Elementz). The thread used was a cashew beige color.

January 5, 2019 – Vintage Dresden Plate

The blades of this beautiful vintage Dresden Plate (lap-size) quilt were appliqued by the customer, and the borders were pieced using remnants of the same fabric. The quilt was custom quilted using pearl (off white) colored thread. Several items, including the blades, corners, circles and white background areas, were individually quilted using designs from the Dresden Blade Quilt set available through Wasatch Quilting. The customer will display this quilt as a wall hanging or table topper. Working on this amazing project was a great way to bring in the new year.
