Just finished this quilt. The block was taken from the Sylvia Bridal Quilt, some of the blocks were done in New Zealand when I went to visit my sister this Spring. I hand quilted it. It's an odd size, it covers the top of my queen bed.
As of today I have 102 blocks completed. Having daughter Rachel with her husband Chris here along with darling grand daughter Felicity, it makes it near impossible to sew at all. Still was able to spend an hour or so in the sewing room today. I would like to get Sylvia completed by mid June. Then on to other projects. I sent the dresden plate out to be quilted, I'm looking forward to seeing it, I am planning on putting a scalloped edge on (the first one I've attempted. I'm on the lookout for the next quilt idea/pattern.
These are a few quilts that I have made over the past few years. Many of my quilts are given away as gifts.
Currently I am working on three quilts. The Sylvia bridal quilt - I started working on this around the first of the year after seeing a post on the HG-TV website. There are several women (I think they're all women) making the quilt. It's been a fun experience seeing all the blocks that have been made so far. I project that it will be finished by the end of the summer. I am pondering as to how I would like quilt the quilt when it's finished. It's by far the most complicated quilt I have done so far.
The other quilt under construction is a Grandma Flower Garden quilt. I had made the block for the Sylvia quilt and liked making it so much that I made more and more and more. Now I have about 40 blocks made. I have enjoyed making these here in the USA and also in New Zealand when I visited my sister and her family... I think I made several in the Fiji Islands and also over the Pacific Ocean.
Another quilt under construction is a Dresden
Plate quilt. The top was originally finished and the quilted already started, it looked terrible, the quilting was uneven and lumpy. I decided to take it apart and re-do the whole thing. Now I am on the search for the perfect background fabric - do I want a solid or a soft print, decisions decisions.
I moved to the US as a young woman, I have been married forever to Jeff. I have three grown kids, and two lovely grand daughters. (and a great son in law)
I love sewing and in particular quilting, I am learning something new every day - hope one day to make a quilt to submit in a show.
