Mary’s Brandenburg Bed Runner measures 30 by 100 inches, it was hard to take a complete picture! The center panel was super fun to enhance with eight different Superior SoFine!#50 threads!The outside pieced blocks and borders are quilted with freehand flowers and bulb design with matching or low contrast thread.I hope Mary will share a picture of the completed bed runner, which could be reversible!
Here’s a link to more customer quilt pictures! And more!
Thanks for looking!
When I got back from Houston and started looking at all my great pictures, I realized how far behind I was on posting customer quilts! Here’s the latest Buggy Barn quilt by Candace of Double Nickel Quilt Challenge. This is a fun pattern that uses 30 fat quarters, a great stash buster. And in honor of our first snow of the season, an appropriate title, Spring Fever.Each flower has a “feather branch” with a meander throughout the background. Candace wanted minimal quilting but left the design up to me and I love how it looks. It’s exactly what I would do if it was my quilt.The backing view shows off the quilting. Candace improved the quilt by washing and drying it to achieve the antique wrinkled look.
It seems like a lot of quilting but it’s still soft and flexible especially with washing and drying.
Deadlines are looming! Thanks for looking!
Last week, my hubby asked me to make his mom microwaveable bowls for her birthday. Her birthday is today, so now I can show you!
The bowls are made with 8 and 10 inch squares of fabric and batting. Remnants are perfect! And I always have cotton batting scraps, too. It’s fun to pick out fabrics that look good inside or out.
Here’s the instruction sheet that my hubby sent with it. He’s so creative!
Linda’s Microwaveable Bowl Instructions
If you’re not sure how to use them, click on the instructions!
If you’re not sure how to make them, here’s a link to the tutorial on my Pinterest board. I don’t follow the instructions exactly, I never do! But, the results are the same. Cotton fabric and batting is important.
Thanks and Happy Birthday, Mom!
Linda has created a table topper of her own design with applique borders and a broderie perse basket of flowers in the center and 3 corners.
The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select, perfect for table toppers because it drapes well and is very flat. The thread is 2 colors of Superior OMNI.
Every part has a different element, so enjoy the pictures!
Linda’s very creative with her quilt backs!
Thanks for looking and have a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!
I’m taking the long weekend with our daughter visiting to sneak in this “loose end” and quilt it. I’ll add my table runner to the end and maybe a few other small projects like a potholder or orphan blocks. After looking at it for two days, I’ve decided to quilt it with a very small meander and use 100% cotton batting. After it’s finished, I’ll wash and dry it to purposely shrink it to give it the wrinkled antique look.
Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!
