I'm trying really hard to figure out my machine and it's a slow process but I'm getting there.
I quilted this little lap quilt. This was the first quilt for me on my TinLizzie. This one is quilted and ready for binding. Hopefully, I'll get better quickly and will be able to quilt my quilts like I want. I have been watching all kinds of videos on Youtube and reviewing all my quilting books. That's another thing that's kept me from blogging. There's just not enough time in the day to do it all!
Anyway, this one is quilted and I'll be binding it soon.
This is a little quilt I made with leftover blocks from another project. I made my oldest son and DIL a king size quilt out of these fabrics. It was a Yellow Brick road pattern and I didn't use these blocks. I've had these laying around for about six years. So, I grabbed these up and put them together. I found the fabric in my stash for the borders and now it's ready for quilting.
This next one is the same way. These were blocks that I've had for a while. I did some demos at my local guild and group on how to do these 3D bow ties. I grabbed these up and put them together and pulled the brown fabric out of my stash for the borders. Now, it's ready for quilting....
This top was given to me to practice on with my quilting machine. I don't know who made it but she used all kinds of fabrics in this one. She put scraps together to make small pieces for this quilt. Now that it's quilted, I love it...It will be a good snuggle quilt or picnic quilt and be well loved. It is now ready for binding too. It was fun to quilt this one and not worry if I messed it up. I played around alot on this one and had a good time. I guess that's another reason I like this quilt. It's a big quilt and has no border. It really looks alot better in person....
These Christmas blocks are what I worked on this weekend. Every year, my small group puts together a quilt for the church we meet in as a thank you to the church for allowing us to meet there. This year it was decided we would be doing a Christmas quilt. Everyone has been asked to make two blocks and turn in 5 strips of the fabric that we used to make a piano key border. (See the little strips at the top of the block, that's what those are for.) I made one of these quilts last year and actually I'm still working on it. I have the quilt all together except for the outside border. I decided to make the border a double row of 2 1/2" blocks...I have been collecting Christmas fabric and have three complete borders done and half of the last border. I'll be showing you the finished top soon....
These two dresden plate blocks are for our Christmas drawing. We have two drawings a year. One in the summer and one at Christmas. The more blocks you make, the more chances you have to win. I hope I win. I love this block and it was so much fun to make. I used the EZ Dresden ruler to make these.
I also made these blocks for my scrap quilt. Leftovers from my other projects and I put together 13 other DP4 blocks but didn't get a pic. I'll show you those later.
I hope everyone in the storm's path will be safe, please take care. Until next time, happy sewing.
