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).

 

July 14, 2020 – Heart of Her Family

   

Quilts are made for many reasons, but there is a tender story behind this one. It was made as a gift for a friend who had and is currently experiencing much heartache. The customer wanted to let her friend know that she is the rock (heart) of her family and that she was deeply loved. The quilt was stitched with a cream colored thread using the PS I Love You design by Christy Dillon (My Creative Stitches).

This quilt is a perfect example of creating something beautiful and unique with one’s stash of fabrics. Not only was the top pieced with assorted fabrics, the backing was pieced as well. Nice job of using things on hand! The quilt measures 66″ x 86″ and was stitched with pastel blue thread using the Swirling design by Anne Bright Designs.
