Dresden Plates, Pumpkins and more

Linda D made this beautiful Dresden Plate quilt 
Made with machine and hand applique with a gold sashing
Lots of color in 30's repros!
Great backing fabric, an Alexander Henry
Gina block is a digital quilting design from Sweet Dream Studios
A fun spiral design in the center with feather and swirl designs
quilted on the Dresden Plates
framed with a petite flower frame that complemented the 30's repro prints
and created a secondary design in the sashing and corners of the plates
Thank you Linda!

Finished in October, the second Halloween print quilt for Donna
Same prints as the first but we quilted this one very different
In place of the scull and crossbones, this one is more about the pumpkins!
 with a pumpkin border design in black thread
That spider web backing glows in the dark!
 1/4 inch outline stitches in the sashing
 and a big pumpkin with a carved face in each of the nine crazy quilt blocks.
Hard to see from a photo, it showed up really well quilted on wool batting

A few more finished and back in the hands of their creators recently...
A Photo Memory quilt made by Betty D
Pam and I love the star border Betty came up with surrounding the blocks
Quilted with a Star Banner in the outer border and SID around the blocks

This quilt is made by Melanie for her son. 
All organic cottons, cotton batting and cotton thread :0)
Quilted design is Flamingo Sunset by Anne Bright

Quilts for Delores... four of them!
Delores brings her quilts with her from Arizona
when she comes to visit her sister here in Chico!
These are Stack and Whacks! One of three, this one did not have borders
 The back of the quilt with a floral e3e quilted on Quilter's Dream Puff Poly batting
 A second, also in purples with a bright yellow and green border
 Fun to see the floral fabrics make a different kaleidoscope design in each block
Quilted with a different floral e2e, this one is called Escargot from Anne Bright

#3 in a hot pink floral fabric set in green
This one will catch someone's attention!
 Quilted with an e2e of Hibiscus flowers by Sweet Dreams

Quilt #4 for Delores was different from the first three
 Delores requested a design with borders
to make it special for a family member
We choose this floral pattern, also from Sweet Dreams
All four were quilted with Puff Poly

There are a few more but I'll save them for a new post.
One for Beckie that I just loved and had fun doing a custom design
Two finished for Cheryl P and one for Phoebe
and one with curved edges for Faye B that is in Goldie's hands for binding
I have another quilt for Beckie with the cutest birds waiting it's turn 
as well as one just finished for Debbie D, a sneak peek...
 of Debbie's baskets. Pam's Swoon is on the frame right now

Busy busy busy ~ Thank you, thank you, thank you
Love the diversity of all the quilts I get to 'frost' is amazing
Frosting, a term Mary uses
That would be Mary of Quilt Hallow, a longarmer that does amazing work
frosting (quilting) customer quilts on her longarm machine :0)
Check out her work as well

Thanks for stopping by :0)

  1. Love how the Memory Quilt looks! I'm eager to make another one that 'needs' the Star and Banner quilting design! Thanks, Jo.
