What do you collect when you travel? Joanne's friend collects Harley Davidson shirts and asked her to make him a T-shirt quilt. Here's how I quilted it!

Can you imagine having the opportunity of traveling the world? What souvenir would you buy to commemorate each of those destinations? Some buy snow globes, or magnets, or postcards. One gentleman bought Harley Davidson t-shirts. In total, he collected over fifty of these shirts but lacked any way of displaying them. That is where Joanne…

Anita’s Tessellating Pinwheel Variation

Posted on
Take a look at Anita's quilt with tessellating pinwheel blocks. She asked me to quilt this with a swirly edge to edge design to mimic the motion in her top.

Have you ever owned something that needed a cover or container and then you found one you had for something else and it fits perfectly? Isn’t that the most satisfying feeling? Tessellations always make me feel the same way. A pattern, especially a complicated one, that fits so snuggly with itself that no gaps and…

Helen’s Memorial Quilt

Helen made this beautiful memorial quilt. It is made up of a grandfather's blue jeans and plaid shirts. It is quilted with the Turbulance pantograph.

When someone you love passes on, it can be difficult to know what to do with what they leave behind. Somethings have value outside of sentiment and can be kept and be useful as is, or be sold. Somethings which may have been useful while they lived, now find themselves obsolete or just redundant to…

Cheri’s Arcadia Ave Quilt!

Cheri made the stunning Arcadia Ave block of the month quilt and asked me to quilt it for her. She chose a fun spiral pantograph with a rainbow variegated thread for a little extra pizzazz!

Quilts stand out for different reasons. Some have lots of bold colors, and others have bold intricate designs. Cheri’s quilt had both. Cheri completed this Block of the Month quilt at the Cozy Quilter called Arcadia Avenue. It is resplendent with the bold bright jewel tones on not only the front, but the backing fabric as…

Sandy’s All-Star Sports Quilt

Posted on
Quilts for teenage boys can be so hard to design. They can't be too swirly and girly. Sandy found the sweet spot with this sports themed quilt for her grandson. I added a sporty star pantograph to finish it up for her!

So often we want to make a quilt for gifts. When giving to a fellow crafts person, it can be easy to create something they will appreciate. Classic quilt blocks are always popular to people who appreciate and understand the history of quilting. But what about a teenage boy?  Especially if he isn’t interested in…

Courtney’s Leaf Quilt

Posted on
Courtney asked me to quilt her gorgeous Leaf Block quilt. I can tell she had lots of fun playing with color, finding the perfect contrast of bold and neutral. She asked me to quilt this with a swirly edge to edge design that balanced the structured rigidity of her quilt.

Many quilts out there are made entirely of one repeated block. Sampler quilts can have as many as a hundred or more different blocks, without a single block repeating. Courtney made this beautiful quilt with two repeating blocks, and I think it came out amazing! One of the blocks is a simple maple leaf in…
