Quilting with a friend
News from the studio
Tricia's string quiltI just love the simplicity of this quilt and the boldness that the black background gives it, don't you? Tricia made this one a few years ago, and recently finished it up as a gift. Nice job, Tricia!
We used the very versatile, Pipeline panto.
Mary Anna's friend's quilt
Baby quilts for Agape Women's ServicesNot long ago, our guild got a call for baby quilts from the Agape Women's Services in Johnson City, TN. Well, I found a pastel jelly roll, and together with some background yardage will get 5 baby quilts from that one jelly roll! I'm making 2 Jacks on the Porch (from 13 strips I get 2 quilts using a 3 x 3 layout) Find the pattern on Craftsy: Jacks on the Porch. BTW, if you use the Jacks on the Porch pattern, you can get 6 baby quilts out of the jelly roll (using a 3 x 3 layout)!
The other 3 quilts use Jenny Doan's Pinwheel Stars. Mercy. I haven't finished any of the Pinwheel Stars quilt tops, but I've been working!
King of Glory Wall Hanging or Table TopperA lovely friend of mine had a birthday last week. In preparation for that, her DH and I schemed for me to make her a wall hanging in the colors she loves to decorate with. So, he sent me a few pictures of some key decorating items so I could get a feel for the style and colors. It was a surprise, and I presented it to her at her celebratory lunch at Olive Garden. Now, the King of Glory greets them as the come into and leave their bedroom. She loved it! (The pantograph is Pipeline.)
Wish I'd invented that
Learning for the WeekDon't run over your fingernail with a longarm needle. Ouch. Fortunately, I did not put the needle all the way through the finger and the machine and needle are fine and functioning great. My nail was a little banged up, and I just needed a bandaid. Time to put the safest foot on the machine!
You have a glorious Memorial Day weekend! Now, let's go quilt something!
