College Kid Quilts

College Kid Quilts

This fall, I have both kids away at college – my daughter, a freshman in her first dorm at UCLA, and my son, in his first house as a junior at University of Puget Sound. Both will have new quilts for their rooms!
Be Positive (Proton)

Be Positive (Proton)

Started in June, this was my first entirely hand quilted quilt. Made from scraps leftover from our new queen-sized bed quilt, I had fun whipping it together, but it took months to quilt (and a lot of binge watching TV!) I love the look, but think next time if...
Galaxies

Galaxies

Still working on this one – I’m hand quilting it (my first attempt at hand vs machine quilting.) I used scrap slivers from another project. When it came together it reminded me of the NASA photos of space, hence the name.

Quilting On Message

After QuiltCon 2016 in Pasadena, several of us from the San Francisco Francisco Quilt Guild (who also meet on the sidelines as the San Francisco Bee Modern quilt group) were inspired by some of the quilts that addressed social issues. We have formed our own group...
Triangularity

Triangularity

At QuiltCon I took Jeni Baker’s Equilateral Triangle class and started this quilt made from (mostly) Carol Freidlander fabrics and some of my other graphic fabric favorites. I like learning new techniques to make projects quickly and this was definitely one that...
YES!

YES!

It’s been awhile since my last post – not that I haven’t been quilting and sewing! This is a gift I made for a colleague who really went above and beyond on a recent event for a program within the nonprofit we work for. The program acronym is YES...
