I made these two mug rugs for a swap over at Quilting Gallery. They are the first mug rugs that I have made. I hope my partner likes them.
I made this wall hanging for a swap. The theme was flowers. I pondered what to do. I knew I wanted to do something different. This is what I came up with. I appliquéd the vase on using steam light and then satin stitched the edge. I wanted a plain color for the vase. Now I wish I would of done some fancy stitching on the vase. It seems so blah. I stitched the flowers on and then glued buttons or beads for the center of the flowers. The binding was the inspiration for the project. I had a small amount of this flower fabric. It is modern with big flowers. I pulled the colors of the flowers from the print. The finished wall hanging measures about 24 inches squares. I free motion quilted in the background space with a leaf pattern.
I made this wall hanging for a swap on My Quilting Buddies. The theme was bird/birdhouse. I found the bird panel on ebay and fell in love with it. I just love cardinals and sunflowers. I so wanted to keep it for myself. I used some multi colored thread to quilt the leaves, around the bird, colander, and the bird house.
I also finished this UFO table runner.
I wrote the instructions this morning for this quilt. This would make a great lap quilt for someone in the military or a baby quilt.If you can’t download these email me and I can send them to you in a .doc format. email@example.com
I made this mini art quilt for a swap on Swap-Bot. The swap was for beginners. I decided to use a fall colors and add a silk flower to it. I’m not sure why, but this has become something I like to do. Maybe because I have a bag full of silk flower cast offs from where I used to work. I was going to make a quilt with them and just haven’t gotten around to it.
The finished quilt is about 6 1/2 inches square. I used black thread to add some detail to the leaves in the nine patch blocks.
The winner is : #78, Ann-Christin in Svalöv, Sweden
Here is my mini quilt for the Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. My friend Laura showed me a pattern on how to do a stained glass quilt. So I made up my own design. It turned out ok. So imagine you are looking out a stained glass window. This is what you see. LOL.
This is with a flash. The blue batik is a little darker.
No flash here. Here are some close ups of the free motion quilting.And please remember I am new to free motion so be kind. 🙂
I tried to make it look like abstract waves. I used black and blue thread.
