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 I’m going to do all that work I should use thread that makes sure you can see it! I originally called it “Be Positive” but renamed it “Proton” in honor of my son who is a physics major in college.
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.
This is from my wall of green scrappy “made fabric” from a few months ago. This was the ongoing -and apparently unending- task of trying to use up all my scraps for a useful purpose. I got pretty far on using a large portion of green tiny bits and came up with the idea to make a traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern as a companion piece to the star below, which I made last year. I like the contrast of the orderly traditional block pattern with the chaos of the green scrappy made-fabric. Both are around 36-42″ square.
Using up my pile of green scraps!
And pink and white and yellow scraps, too.
I finished this a while ago but only recently got around to photographing it. I’m not sure what I want to title it yet. It features my fascination of creating blocks from random tiny scraps leftover from other projects . It’s one of my favorite things I’ve ever made!
Went a little nuts on the free motion quilting!
