A few more quilts and fabric postcards…

Here are some things that I have been working on lately.

But first, a few of my customers’ quilts that I have completed for them.

Quilt of Valor

Ellie brought this quilt for a soldier for the Quilts of Valor program. Her Church Group

made it especially for this special person who works in the Canadian Armed Forces.

The blocks are all different but the colors used remain the same, reds, whites, black and yellow.

The yellow is quite nice and makes the quilt very cheerful.

Ellie designed this corner poppy block by herself; I think she did a great job!

More blocks within this quilt.  A very light polyester thread was used for the  top

and for the backing as well.

The borders on the outside of the quilt.

The backing of the quilt really shows off the stitching. “Maple Syrup”

was the panto used all over the quilt. It seemed appropriate for the

theme of the quilt.

Ellie’s Quilt

Ellie also made this cute quilt for her grandson. She wanted animals to be

stitched all over the quilt. I found a pattern on the Gammill Pattern Cloud website.

A close up of all those animals. I used a polyester thread to match the top color of the

quilt and the same color on the back of the quilt.

The backing shows off the stitching and the animals beautifully. If you want the stitching

to show up in the back of your quilt, use a solid color.

Fabric Postcard #1

I made this fabric postcard for a special someone. It is a Robert Kauffman

print that I cut up for the postcard. I love the colors of this print. Hope Jean does as well.

FAbric Postcard #2

I made this one for Joan. Hope she likes cardindals. Again, a Robert Kauffman print. They are

gorgeous.

Graduation Quilt

My daughter is graduating from high school next year . Yes, I know, its pretty early but

I usually dont have alot of time to sew so I am starting early. There is alot of piecing

in this one. IF you ever decide to piece a, Elizabeth Hartman pattern, make sure

you are organized and have a huge stash of ziploc bags. They are keeping me sane

and organized. I will let you know how the progress is going.

    Hi Love seeing your posts 😍. Happy New Year!! Thank you for sending the picture of your family and the gift. So very nice of you. We had a great Christmas and you can imagine pretty crazy with 4 little kiddies under the age of 9. I’ll send you some pictures through email. Everyone LOVES your quilting on fiesta fresh. I have recently showed my friends in hhi. Our show is at the end of March and I’ll find out if it is going to Paducah in February. It really looks great. I plan to take the biding off and adding a bit of cording and then the binding but not sure when that will be done. Anyway think about Houston for next fall. Xxoo Darlene
