Welcome to my quilting weblog! My mixed love of stitching and a level in artwork introduced me to quilting 25+ years in the past. I like all the assorted kinds quilting encompasses – art quilts, traditional, woolwork, and many others. I’ve designed my own artwork quilts and patterns and also love conventional designs (especially needle-flip applique!) So come alongside on my journey and let’s examine what quilts we are able to create.
I discovered this quilt, forgotten in my closet…poor pink quilt!! It is humongous! So it went on the mattress, and I found the date…1990. Time to make use of it up, don’t you assume??? It was fastidiously folded and had tissue in the layers…who knows what I used to be pondering again then! It’s actually not an heirloom. Hope each of you is having a fantastic day, and a wonderful weekend tomorrow. I’m fearful in regards to the massive storm on the east coast of the USA…my children are straight within the path of this monster…certain hope the ability stays on!!
Thanks Vespa, As a quilter, I like seeing my quilts loved a lot that they fall apart. Most of them are made to be used, and it’s a shame to have them locked away in an attic, while someone waits for his or her market value to extend. You probably have a photograph, you could recreate the quilt. Step three – Finishing the preliminary brick wall design. It seems slightly flat so I will add some design details.
Lol tuiteakid! I agree however fortunately there are 2nd hand shops and thrift shops filled with unwanted mens shirts, and in all kinds of patterns, colours and quality. I’ve picked up $150 shirts for $2 and got a very good quantity of nice high quality one hundred% cotton from them. Just must be keen to look around a bit. Figure 3 shows various motifs that might be enlarged for plain squares not adorned with applique or patchwork. Or they might be used small to fill in spaces in applique or patchwork block.
The Scrappy Day Journey Quilt Pattern (PDF file) is accessible for speedy download from my Etsy Store as well as my Sample Retailer and includes 15 pages of photos and diagrams, plus a foundation paper piecing pattern and templates for the Triangle in a Sq. block. Tivaevae are quilts made by Prepare dinner Island ladies for ceremonial occasions. Quilting is assumed to have been imported to the Islands by missionaries. The quilts are highly prized and are given as gifts with different finely made works on important occasions such as weddings and christenings. Charming little collectibles. And much faster to make than a full sized quilt. Blessed by the Quilting Squidoo Angel.
