Stephanie Brandenburg Daydreams

When Sheila brought me this Stephanie Brandenburg quilt, I knew I would need lots of thread!  In fact, this is the reason I have a large thread collection!  I had great fun with thread play on this quilt and used eleven different So Fine! #50 colors.

11 thread colors

I  used double batting for this project, Quilter’s Dream Poly black and Hobb’s Heirloom wool.  Stephanie Brandenburg paints with color, I painted with thread!  Fair warning!  Lot’s of pictures! Read the rest of this entry

New York Beauty Wall Hanging

New York Beauty Wall Hanging

New York Beauty Wall HangingAnn has created an awesome wall hanging featuring New York Beauty blocks.  I had fun developing original quilting designs for this project.  It will hang in an old Italian style house so I used Italian tile designs for my influence.  Thanks to Pinterest, they were easy to find!Corner detailThe batting is Quilter’s Dream Blend and Dream Puff layered together.  Double batting gives lots of texture and allows the quilting detail to pop.

The thread is Superior Threads So Fine 50 in a color that matches the fabrics.


Back detail

The back is a tea dyed muslin which shows off the quilting detail, too!

Here’s the link to my Pinterest board for Italian Design ideas.  How do you think I did?  Thanks for looking!  Linda 🙂

Swirl and Curl quilting

My extended family will be having four babies this year!  And yesterday was the arrival of the first, Kailani Harper!  I love making Tummy Time quilts for the babies and here’s the one I made for Kailani.

If you’ve followed my blog you might have seen the design process for making this quilt.  All the fabric was leftover from another quilt!


The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select with another layer of Quilter’s Dream Puff!  I love the texture of the double batting and my new favorite Swirl and Curl freehand quilting design.  I challenge the parents to use the quilts and I’ll make them another if they wear it out!

I’m linking with A Stitch in Time for another April finish!

Thanks!  🙂 Linda


Christmas Wall Hanging #2

Christmas Wall Hanging #2

Here’s Barb’s second Christmas wall hanging. Isn’t it adorable?!  Now I really want to make a wall hanging!  For this project we decided on custom quilting with double batting.  The bottom layer is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton and the top layer is Dream Puff.

A small meander flattens the area around the cardinal and a branchy meander flattens the area around the piecing. The double batting enhances the other stitching in the blocks and borders, too.  I love it!  This wall hanging is about 29 inches square and the double batting gives it nice body and some weight.  I definitely have a wall hanging on my to do list so I can use double batting again!

How’s your Christmas sewing progressing?
