Glacier Star Reveal

Janann's Glacier StarJanann’s Glacier Star palette is totally different from Mary’s and I love the desert look.The batting is a layer of Quilters Dream Blend and Dream Poly, which fills out the quilting designs nicely.

Now that I’ve figured out how to post from my phone,  yay!, expect more mini posts from me! 

Thanks!  Linda 

Great Granny Square Quilt is Done!

Great Granny Square Quilt is Done!

My Great Granny Square quilt Another May finish!  This quilt was started on a whim and I love it when I actually finish!  After checking out Great Granny Square quilts on Pinterest and other blogs, I decided to add cornerstones and binding with a green fabric from my stash.  I tried scrappy cornerstones but the same color looked best to me.

All the fabric was from my stash of 2 1/2″ or 5″ squares plus lots of white remnants.  My quilting buddy, Candace, decided to set her blocks without cornerstones.  Here’s a pic of hers before the binding.  The background fabric is white, my indoor lighting does not do it justice!Candace's Great Granny Square quiltThe block quilting was inspired by a Pinterest pinner who made potholders out of her Great Granny Squares.  After some trial and error, I managed to figure out a path for stitching with the longarm without having to break my thread!  detail back

I love the stitching and did the same thing on Candace’s except for the outside edge fill.

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 🙂

Bryan and Ginny quilts

Bryan and Ginny quilts

  Ginny’s husband has started quilting and here’s his first quilt!  Pretty ambitious!

The quilting is a freehand meander with Quilter’s Dream Puff batting and the thread is Superior OMNI.

He even created a nice pieced back.  And, I understand he’s working on another one!

Ginny picked up her quilt, too.  I love the color palette on this quilt using Amy Butler fabrics.

It’s quilted with with a freehand peacock feathers meander.  The batting is Quilter’s Dream Blend and the thread is Superior OMNI light tan.

 I love the texture created with the quilting, especially on the back.

I’ll be going to a 3 day quilting retreat this weekend.  I plan to work on some loose ends and start some new ones!  I’ll  report back later!

I entered a quilt in this week’s Quilting Blogger’s themed contest, New Beginnings.  I’ll post the link tomorrow for you to see all the quilts and vote if you like!

Thanks for looking and just keep stitching!
