Quilts 2012

The quilts listed on this page are in completed order. I add new quilts as I finish them and older quilts as I think of them. This is really for my own records. I have given away so many quilts without making any notes about them, or even taking pictures, I made a personal vow to stop doing that!

Belgian Waffles 12/2012

 Belgian Waffles: I made this for a sales rep who's wife just had a baby. The pattern is from the Moda Bake Shop website. I liked it so much I made another with Kaffe Fasste print and shot cotton scraps. I used Warm & Natural batting, Permacore thread in blue and a quilting pattern called Leap Frog.

 Violaceous! 7/2012
I made this with leftovers from my Purple Square Deal Quilt. It's a pattern from Bonnie Hunter called Carolina Chain, originally published in the Quiltmaker May/June 2010 issue.

Ranch Hands 2012 Challenge

Ranch Hands 2012 Challenge: started May 2011, finished May 2012. This fabric was chosen for the 2012 challenge at the Ranch Hands Quilt Retreat, held at Bishop's Ranch every April and October. The first picture is the front. When I returned from the retreat the latest Quiltmaker magazine was waiting for me, with this pattern in it (top photo). I had extra fabric so I made a little back art. The center of the bottom photo is the challenge fabric. I fussy cut the birds for the center of the blocks in the top. Final measurements are 42" x 42". I used Warm & Natural batting and quilted it with white Permacore thread on my home sewing machine. Using the walking foot, I quilted simple diagonal lines and accented the individual blocks. I eventually gave this quilt as a gift for a new baby in October 2015.

Casey's Wedding Quilt

Casey's Wedding Quilt: Started January 2012, finished April 2012. This quilt was a gift for my daughter's friend, Casey, who is getting married soon. Casey was unable to find bedding that she liked so my daughter asked me to make this for her. Her favorite colors are green, red, orange and brown. This is a color scheme I really like and have done several times before. The only fabric I purchased was the background, borders and back. The rest is scraps from my collection. The pattern is called Jewel Box and is from the first Nickel Quilt book. The finished measurements are 104" x 104". I used Quilter's Dream 100% wool batting, King Tut thread in Green Olives on top and So Fine to match on the bottom. The quilting pattern is Feather Frond by Jodi Beamish.
