Christmas quilts for BLDCD

Barry/Lawrence Development Center in MOnett works with children birth to 5 yrs old.  Friends busted stash and made 17 small quilts for the kids.  Two pieces of fabric sewn on batting and tied with string.  I can only hope the children enjoy these as much as we did making them.

Debbie H- STAR-ted it

Deb asked me if I could die cut the shapes for this new keepsake for her grandson James.  Of course I had to try.
Several other friends want to try their hand at the interlocking stars, Bet we see a few more lovely quilts come spring!

Wonky star part 3 getting close

Star-ting to add the outer borders.  Simple spinning star made with chisels and triangles and a rectangle.  Most of these were pre-cut left over from a different project.

I was considering adding a border of these tiny stars,  Four units in I decided I wasn't that committed to this idea!

This one is for a favorite niece.  The fabrics were brought back from India by her grandfather.  I hope the couple much success as they start their life together!

Grow Old with me

the best is yet to be

Thursday's class cont.....

Jessica and her mom, Clara both did a great job on their tops.  Hope to get these quilted in time for the holidays.  16-patched, triangle sqs. , choice block pattern and raw-edge applique- what a great first quilt!!

Thursday's class tops Marianna

There were three students in the Thursday class.  This started out as an into-to sewing and ended up with all three gals making their first quilts!

Each made similar 16-patch blocks.  The next week we worked on triangle sqs.  The third week was pick out your own pattern.  The forth week was an intro to applique.

I wish I had taken more photos of this beautiful quilt in progress.  I am so proud of Marianna for being the first on done.  Quilted and bound and on the bed!
Twelve 12 1/2 inch blocks

Set together in the D-9 pattern.  The top is quilted and pinned to sew the binding down.

Love this print on the back!

This reindeer will get button eyes.  The head is made from the tracing of her daughter's foot.  The antlers are her son's hand prints.   What a fun keepsake!

Isn't this a lovely block from week 3

Beautiful 16 patch

Someone figured out raw-edge applique!

Her third applique block is left over pieces from one of my past projects.  She replaced a few blades with scraps from her top to make the plate fit in.

Wonky star part 2

I love raw-edge applique for adding words to my quilts.

"Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by."

Outer border is a work in progress- hope to show it off soon
