Time To Catch Up!

I think it is about time to catch up on all the projects I've been working on or got done the last month of 2012.  Some of the photos I could not post until they were given as gifts.  Hope you enjoy the show!

*This quilt was made by Bev (who is also our choir director) for her newest grandson Brody.  It is the same pattern as the one she made for Riley but used different colors.

 I meandered this quilt using white thread.  I attached the brown binding by machine and  Bev hand turned it.

*This T-shirt quilt was made by Rama.  I think this is her second or third one I have quilted. 
It was quilted in a meander with a blue-ish grey thread.  This was a Christmas gift!

*Gladys (from gladysgab.blogspot.com) made the following quilt and wall hanging.  The quilt was for her granddaughter and I posted a picture of the quilting but could not post the whole quilt.  Here it is!

I quilted this using the Waterworld pantograph and pink thread.  This quilt pattern is the Double Slice pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co. and uses a layer cake!

*If I remember correctly, Gladys made this for her sister.  Gladys bought the kit while on a vacation with Momma Barb.  I have never seen such lovely Magnolias on fabric.

Quilted with the Clover Meadow pantograph and oyster thread.
The Dawes Arboretum in Newark Ohio has a grove of Magnolia trees.  I really need to make an effort to see them when they are in full bloom.

*My daughter-in-law Kirstie made this quilt for her Mom.  It was a Jelly Roll Race quilt and she added the accent block.  Melinda's house is decorated in Americana decor.

The backing is a very nice flannel and Kirstie chose the Stars & Loops pantograph.  We thought the red, white & blue variegated thread was perfect!

*Kirstie is married to my youngest son Nathan.  They were married July 28th and we had a winter wonderland wedding!  Their original wedding date was December 1st, but Nathan received deployment orders and the date had to be changed.
Kirstie wanted to make Nathan a quilt to take with him to Afghanistan.  Kirstie chose all the fabrics, designed the quilt, made photo blocks and then called on her favorite Mother-in-law to help her get it done in time for Christmas!!  When I went over to help Kirstie with the quilt, she only had 8 of the 28 blocks done.  In one afternoon, we got the blocks made and set into rows.
I really love this quilt and I was more than happy to be involved in its making.
I meandered the quilt using Mother Goose thread.  I attached the binding .......

..and Kirstie helped hand turn it.  Report was that Nathan loved it and was able to pack it!

There, I am up-to-date on the quilted projects!  On to the next block......


  1. The the quilt show! But especially loved the winter wedding in July...your son and daughter-in-law are my kind of people! The quilt you made together is wonderful...I was touched! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Tell Kirstie, Nice job on all her quilts! I know Nathan will treasure his. I like the way the red, white and blue jellyroll came together. Fun!
