Machine Applique Sample Finished + Another Grandma's Quilt to Rescue from Cheeky Cognoscenti

You guys -- I finished my machine appliqué project from Karen Kay Buckley's workshop last month!  Well, I finished the top, anyway.  I plan to add borders and then I need to quilt it, but still.  All the appliqué is stitched down and the stabilizer is all ripped off the back, so I'm feeling like I've accomplished something!


I Call it "Underwater Sunrise Garden With Alien Bubbles."  12 x 18
This is a project that I started in a 6-hour workshop hosted by the Charlotte Quilter's Guild.  Here's what Karen's class sample looks like:

Estate Quilt Recovered! from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Ann Rutherford-Berthiaume is hoping to recover some quilts that were sold against her wishes at an auction at 211 University Ave., Waxahachie, TX on July 30, 2005. The auctioneer was Larry Schaefer.

These quilts were her grandmother’s, her great-grandmother’s, and possible her great-great-grandmother’s. There were 20-21 sold at the auction. She had asked for photos of all the quilts but only received about one-fifth of them. She was able to purchase the ones she knew about, but was never told about the twenty or more others. She basically has one generation and is missing the other two ...

Bubbles 4 from Virtual Quilter

Making one of these would be on a par with using quarter inch hexagons to make a queen size quilt … and doing that is the reason some of my my best friends get called crazy quilters!

Floral Wedding 41 from Virtual Quilter

Simple idea … take a traditional design, in this case Double Wedding Ring, Change the traditional rings made from pieces and try adding flowers.

I have also added the beads from String of Beads, and wondering what else could be used. Any ideas? (If you have EQ try your own ideas!)

Beautiful Double Wedding Ring, updated to-do, and blah, blah, blah from caledonia quilter

As you may or may not know, I have been working on a double wedding ring quilt for several years.  I complete one row per year when I'm on retreat up in Tobermory with the Beach Girls.  Every once in a while the Universe teases me, and has a customer bring one for quilting.

This is so pretty.  I just love these quilts and look forward to someday completing my own.

Nice plain back that shows off the quilting.

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Trying New Things! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

After last week's quilting marathon, I decided it was time to do something fun and different.  So as I was casting around for what that could be, I remembered that my goal for this month, scrap-wise, was to try out my double wedding ring templates...


So I grabbed some leftover fat quarters of Make Life by Sweetwater (thanks, Renegade Quilter!) and my tiniest rotary cutter and started cutting!


The templates were great - very easy to cut out, especially since I have that tiny rotary cutter. The smaller the wheel, the easier it goes around those curves!  Assembly ...

sorting and sewing from Making A Lather

With a little bit of hmmming, and hawing, and head scratching, I have put two rows of the double wedding ring quilt together. And not just any two rows. The outside row and row 2.  It looks pretty good. and it was just a question of me being very careful to double check what was next to what when I sewed.
Just because of the sheer bulk, I will join 2 rows  together first and then join 2 sets together.


Most of the week I have been sorting through my green scraps in an attempt to find some order to ...

dwr rows from Making A Lather

I am still working on the double wedding ring quilt. I have all the rows completed, and now, it's time to get brave and sew the rows together..... hmmm......maybe next week.


I have loved everything about making this quilt. I am truly glad I took the plunge and decided to make it. And, I do want to see it finished. I started the quilt because Jo of Jo's country junction published her version of it in magazine, and started a quilt along. That was the motivation I needed.
I love the fabrics and that all of it ...

Some Of My Traditional Quilts from Quilts + Color

I call this quilt Amish Pathways. It is a one patch quilt design. It is a simple quilt I designed that could be pieced in almost no time. It relies on a great color combination. It is in a private collection. I designed the quilting pattern to give it texture and direction. It is hand quilted.
There is nothing more traditional than a log cabin quilt. As I made quilts I cut the leftovers into strips and made this when I had enough strips. It was a labor of lover and as I created it my thoughts went to the ...

classic double wedding ring from Making A Lather

One block at a time, I am building rows for my double wedding ring quilt. It is tricky getting the curves facing the right direction.


The outside rows require a finished curved edge. It is easiest if there are 3 melons on the center piece. But, the row goes together in an every other pattern. This is the last block for the the right bottom outside corner. Now, I have to start putting rows together. I started this with Jo of Jo's country junction quilt along. I was pleasantly surprised how much easier it is to make than it ...

double wedding ring from Making A Lather

We have had another through the night snowfall and it is pretty looking out the window. Yesterday, I had rug hooking guild and a quilter's group get together. Two fun things in one day is pretty exciting around here.
I spent rug hooking time transferring a new snowman pattern to linen. I didn't get it finished, but I did get it squared and borders straight and nice.
At quilt group, I worked on double wedding ring and sorting through a box, that I wasn't sure just what was in there, despite the labels. I will have to ...

templates from Making A Lather

I am a tool person and so is my husband, so he would let me buy anything that was a tool. He is a machine repairman, and he knows that the right tool can make a huge difference. I made my first quilt with a homemade cardboard template. We have come a long way since then.

I did a quick check on the template inspired quilts I am piecing. I have taken the double wedding ring out of the box again and I have several of these parts I need to make.


I have been cutting 2 1/2 in ...

I have just blinked, or something, and the shapes created by the sections of Double Wedding Rings in each corner look like Christmas decorations!
