Our neighbors developed a relationship with a doe and her two fawns. Every evening, Monty would go out to the bayou and wait for her to show up with her little fawns. He would call to her and she would approach and eat the corn he scattered on the ground. This quilt was my Christmas gift to them.
I pieced this quilt for Gary Yepsen using the liturgical colors for the different seasons. It was sandwiched and tied by the ladies of Martha’s Quilters and presented to Gary on December 7, 2016.
This was a project inspired by Lori Kennedy’s blog the inbox jaunt. She had a competition to see who could create the best quilt using her free motion quilting motifs. Surprise, I won!
Here’s a picture of the new dust cover for my Bernina.
This quilt was appliquéd and machine quilted on my Bernina 153. It was part of a collection of quilts in the book “Sideways Spirals” by Renee Merrill, published in July 2016.
This quilt was commissioned by Teresa McGlynn for her business of transporting bodies from their place of residence (or hospice) to the funeral home. She had contacted me about making something that would be used for her Catholic and Christian families, rather than the plain upholstery fabric she had been using. She allowed me to make all the design decisions, which is the reason I enjoyed making the quilt. It was tied and the binding stitched by Martha’s Quilters.
This quilt was made from 4 dishtowels that I bought in Santa Fe, New Mexico a few years ago. I cut and pieced them in a geometric design, then hand stitched some colored embroidery floss through it to add some extra color. It needed a curved finish, so I put in a scalloped edge with a striped fabric, and lots of quilting along the edges for a textured look.
