Good morning!! In an effort to keep up with everything I’m doing, I may possibly do some blog posts where I share multiple quilts from some of my clients. For example, the following quilts were made by Loranne, Jeanne, and Kate.
Let’s first start with Loranne’s beautiful quilt...
Loranne is amazing!! She gets inspired by quilts and often makes up her own thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if this were the case.
I used an Omni dark grey thread for the background, and 3 coordinating variegated threads to quilt the stars. I also used 2 layers of batting. An 8020 cotton poly on the base, and Hobbs wool on top.
Loranne loved the overlapping circles design that I quilted recently on another quilt, and wanted it on this one. I love how it turned out. Such a fun design to do as background filler. I wish you could reach through the screen and touch that texture, it’s awesome!!
Next up Jeanne made this awesome t-shirt quilt for her daughter!!
Many of the shirts are from her college days at Loyola University, but some are to honor family and friends who’ve suffered from cancer. Love that!!!
I used a light gray 30 tex Perma Core A&E thread and my favorite 8020 cotton poly blend batting.
Jeanne’s daughter chose my Squared©️ design for the quilting. It’s available: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/squared
A nice close up!! This design is great on so many different quilts.
Next up, Kate! Wow, huh?!?!!
Kate made this amazing collage quilt for a friend, of course the bear claw block is a perfect fit to border around the bear.
I used a brown 30 tex A&E Perma Core thread to quilt wood grain in the border, and also to define the bear. I used a toupe tan color to quilt the grassy design in the background behind the bear and also the orange peel shapes in the bear claw blocks. I also used my favorite 8020 cotton poly winline batting.
Here is a short video on how to quilt a wood grain design in a border.
Isn’t that bear so cool??!!
I used my 7” Circle2 ruler to quilt the large orange peel curves.
I used my 4” Circle2 ruler to quilt the small orange peel curves. These are such fun rulers to use. Easy to rotate around the hopping foot.
The rulers can be found in my shop: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop?category=Rulers
