Since I’ve started quilting, I was encouraged to keep a photo log of my projects. I thought I’d share that log with you.
William’s Nine Patch
This is my first quilt, a baby quilt I started for William, and then finished after he passed. When I get up the nerve, I’ll be donating it to the NICU that cared for William. The pattern is a nine-patch in orange, green, turquoise and cream. The back is solid orange.
My second crib quilt. Based on the pattern Lemon Twist by Cyndi Walker from her book Spotlight on Scraps. Appliqué lemons don’t exactly say baby quilt, so I left them off and practiced my hand quilting in a medallion shape in the empty blocks. The pattern is a Double Pinwheel (also called Turnstile) in yellows and greens, with alternating plain squares and a pieced border. The back is a green and white check. This is a gift for my pregnancy buddy, who’s little one was born June 16, 2012.
Rainbow Disappearing Nine-Patch
My third crib quilt. It uses 30s-style rainbow-colored charm squares. The quilting is quarter-inch and in-the-ditch, creating a unique geometric pattern on the solid white back of the quilt. This was made for a good friend’s rainbow baby, born February 18th, 2013.
Quatrefoil Table Runner
I did this for the 2013 Christ’s Covenant Art Gala. The donated pieces go at silent auction to raise support for missionaries. This piece was in greens and purples.
