I liked making this quilt because it is a composite of individual fabrics each with its own unique pattern, texture, and color. I made this because I made one for myself 20-years ago and it never feels old.
Dimensions: 84″ x 94″ (queen)
Quilting: Long-Arm Gamill Machine Quilted.
I’ve always wanted to try the Churn-Dish pattern because it is such an old classic pattern. I specifically choose Civil War reproduction fabrics.
Dimensions: 103″ x 103″
Warm & Natural Batting
Here is a new log cabin quilt I made from navy and cream colors – a true classic for me.
King Dimensions: 110″ x 110″
Warm and natural batting.
I’ve been working on a new shirt quilt. This time I am incorporating more solid colors and working with thinner strips. It’s easy to make when I have all the raw materials quick at hand. I have been collecting old shirts from thrift stores for over a year now.
Working through another winter storm this weekend. Good thing creativity is not weather dependent!
Our plower-guy quit in the middle of the storm. Splendid. I live on a private drive and the City will not come with a bucket-loader to clear us out. Hopefully I will get “off the rock” tomorrow.
A blue-blooded New Englander, I love a good snow storm. Ventured out at the peak of the snow on Friday night.
Then again, all this weather keeps me inside and at the sewing machine. Working on another William Morris quilt. Trying to find just the right the balance of colors and patterns.
It has begun and we can no longer see the harbor.
I just finished this one and sent it off to the Newfane Country Store in Newfane, VT.
Here at Gloucester Quilter, we have a “Lobstar” atop our tree. Happy Holidays!
I make lobster potholders in time for the holiday season. I love workingthese lobster fabrics.
Mix and match! They sell for $12 each.
