2002 I think. I call it Granny's because the squares are laid out in a pattern that reminded me of Granny Squares.
1960's with 1950's fabrics.
assembled from die cut fabric I picked up at a quilt show.
Machine pieced and free motion quilted by me. Finished size approximately 72 x78 inches, just right for a twin bed.
The Dogwood Quilt, finished Fall 2013, made from charm squares and yardage from the same fabric line. It is a Moda line.
The First Jelly Roll Marathon, fabric is Kansas Troubles, the quilting pattern I call Hosta because it reminds me of the way my Hosta plants leaves form. Finished in March of 2013, I used the scraps to create the pieced borders. One of my favorite quilts.
Finished June 2014, Made from a Kate Spain fabric called "Sunnyside." I named it the House Dress Quilt after Mr. Sewtopia remarked that it reminded him of the quilts made by his Grandmother from her old house dresses. This one ended up being tedious, too many colors. Too many lines, it is a full/queen size.
A strip quilt, Jelly Roll Jam #2 in the Jenny Doan series. From an orphan Jelly Roll, Butterscotch and Roses by Fig Tree for Moda. Love this fabric. Border and binding from scrap jelly rolls in white and off-white. Thread is variegated off whites from Superior. King Tut I think.
Flannel circles were fused with a Pellon product and cut with the Accuquilt Studio, in a TRQ sponsored class. Joined block to block, backed with flannel, no batting because the top layer is actually two layers. Quilting secured with decorative stitching and relevant words in an I Spy format specific to the recipient.
