My son LOVES firefighters, (and construction vehicles, and trucks, and anything else that moves :)! So 18 months ago - yes 18 months - as in this top has been sitting on a shelf since June 2013 - I finished this beautiful red/black/white fire themed quilt top.
I need to assemble a backing, baste then quilt and bind this quilt - in two weeks!! I pulled a bunch of fabrics, most of them are smaller pieces (less than 1/2 yard) left from piecing the front. It'll be a crazy mis-mash of prints, but that's cool cause he loves crazy (he loves me - right!?!)
My son really wants a new quilt for Christmas!!
And I've barely spent 5 hours on the sewing machine in the last 6 weeks....I really hope I can find the time to get it done!
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
Working with local schools has been very fun and the students are pushing me to design ever more interesting layouts from simple subunits. Take a look at the third quilt I helped to make this year!
Memory quilts aren't always cute and cuddly, this t-shirt quilt is all about hard rock and good times!
A local Mom asked me to turn her children's baby outfits into a bed-sized quilt and I happily agreed!
A very sentimental Mom asked me to make a bed-sized quilt from her children's baby clothes, and this is going to be one beautiful memory quilt!
