Sit back and relax as you scroll through more wonderful quilts! And I'm getting to Cluck Cluck Sew's quilts...patience grasshopper!
Kareena made this top and I took a close up of the block so you could see just how easily it comes together...strips of fabric from a jelly-roll! What a fun quilt this is!
Kareena made this quilt, too, and I've shown it here before but this time it's finished, complete with the eyes, carrot noses and buttons...such cute little snowmen!
Sorry for the blur! I mustache you a question...do you love this? I have to say, it's probably not my favorite quilt (sorry K) but it did make me smile! And as usual, the applique, piecing and quilting are perfect.
Now the quilt above, another of Kareena's masterpieces, IS a favorite! It's fresh from the quilter so it's not bound yet, but I can just imagine being wrapped up in this quilt while watching a Hallmark Christmas movie...too bad it's not mine!
Last one from the over-achiever, Kareena...this looks big but it's actually a baby quilt. It's very soft and sweet and i'ts an easy pattern which looks like it was hard...my favorite kind of quilt!
Finally, we can move on to another over-achiever, Terry! This is one of her masterpieces...her work is impeccable! I love this whimsical stitchery; I think Terry said she was going to have it stretched and framed.
This is for a pillow Terry is working on. I think Terry loves halloween as much as I do - which is a lot. Terry backs all of her hand-work with batting, so the threads don't show through. She stitches through both the fabric and the batting - which adds just a smidgen of texture - love this!
This little vintage quilt was something that was donated to Project Linus. It's been tied to the batting, which isn't really batting but some kind of fusible that is incredibly stiff. Stephanie over-saw the Day of Service where quilts were made for Project Linus and she brought in this quilt to ask our group what to do with it. After a bit of discussion it was decided it should be removed from the backing and machine quilted, which yours truly offered to do. I'm a sucker for vintage quilts - even if they're not mine, plus I wasn't able to help with the Day of Service (on September 11th) so this can be my contribution...I need all the brownie points I can get!
The little quilt above is another Project Linus quilt, made from orphaned blocks. Stephanie is just putting on the border and will finish it up. Stephanie also brought in a huge back of knitted scarves to show us - she is donating them to a shelter. If you look up the word generous in the dictionary, you'll find Stephanie's name in bold letters.
This quilt top makes me laugh...it's made, almost entirely from scraps that Helen was throwing away! Stephanie does not EVER think a scrap of fabric is too small to use...so she gathered up Helen's trash and turned it into this fabulous qult!
I've shown you these blocks before - Stephanie made them from scraps, too! Now she has them all pieced between shott cottons - making this one great flimsy. Trash to treasured - I really need to go through my garbage can in my sewing room!
This is Stephanie's version of our group's ugly-quilt-block-quilt. Years ago we all made blocks for each other out of fabric we didn't particularly like...using up our ugly fabrics. If you look at some of those blocks individually, you'll instantly see why they are called ugly blocks...but this is a great quilt! Most of us have our own version of this quilt and I can honestly say my ugly-block quilt is one of my favorites!
One year ago we had a quilt group retreat at Barbara's cabin. While there Stephanie pieced this top and I can't really remember what the deal was but she wasn't happy with how the black and white stripes turned out - so she re-did them...and now it's done - amazing, no?
This last quilt is the first one Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew showed...I'm showing it to you as a teaser - Part Three with the rest of Allison's quilts...the Grand Finale is coming soon! Stay tuned!
