Here are some quilts I have made lately and neglected to post about. Just being lazy these days.
First up.....EMBROIDERY FLOWER VASE by Tilda
|64" x 82"|
|wonky free motion flower grid pattern|
It is a free pattern from Tilda . I purchased a fabric kit from Mad About Patchwork which included comparable colours of the Tilda shades converted in Kona solids. Lots of fabric to complete the top with background is included in the kit. For the backing, I bought extra of the background colour (Kona Aqua) and also used some of the leftover cuts from the front. The kit from MAD was very generous. This quilt contains 2,268 x 2" cut (1 1/2" finished) squares. There is a lot of organization involved in the process. But the sewing up is uncomplicated. Just sewing squares together. I enjoyed making this quilt a lot.I free motion quilted on my Pfaff powerquilter sitdown machine. I stitched a wonky flower gridded design.
Next up...CAT SCRATCH by Art East Quilting Co.
It's always a delight to sew up an Art East Quilts pattern. The instructions are impeccable and so helpful at every step. I think this is my sixth one. Even though I am not a lover of cats, I just couldn't say no when a sweet little girl asked me to make it for her. She is definitely a cat lover as she has four and they are represented by a colour in this quilt. I free motion quilted a meandering loop de loop to resemble a ball of yarn that was in tangles.

And then we have....POCKET CHANGE by Kate Griffin for Villa Rosa Designs
|48" x 58"|
I have had this pattern on my list for a while so I decided to use a jelly roll called "By the Seaside" by Loes van Oosten for Cotton and Steel. Add some background fabric and you have a nice little lap quilt.
I free motion quilted with a wavy line in keeping with the ocean themed fabrics that were from the jelly roll.
And one more quilt from that same jelly roll......MODERN STRIPES QUILT by Frozen Knickers
I free motion quilted an odd looking kind of wave from edge to edge to tie in with the seaside theme.
And finally.....The XOXO Quilt by Green Bee
Another pattern that I have had for years and just got around to making. I used up some of my treasured original Cotton and Steel prints with a tone on tone beigey background by C+S. Half square triangles and squares. Easy peasy! I love big blocks!
|48" x 64"|
I free motion quilted what is supposed to be a whirly gig design. It was fun to make this.
That's it for now. I hope you enjoy my post and thank you very much for stopping by.
I hope you get time today to do some catching up too. 😊
