This is the one I made for my second grand child.
"Around the World" quilts are done in a specific way, by making circles of strips of alternate fabrics, cutting and sewing them on a rotating basis, one square different each time. You sort of have to be there to really understand it...or I need to do better explainations..... :)
A mini quilt. I use it as a seat cover on my office chair.
Sonny Boy gave me a "jelly roll" of co-ordinated fabrics for Christmas a few years ago, and this is what became of it.
This pieced top is waiting for quilting when I get my "long arm"
A birthday gift to an old friend (minus the dog)
Here you can see the free-motion machine quilting that I am able to do on my own small machine.
This is the current project. It has been on the go for over a year now. It is a super-king-sized quilted bed cover. When asked recently when I wanted to have it finished, I replied, "Somewhere in this life time."
With left-over fabrics, and some donated yardage, I designed this quilt for the Prayers and Squares Ministry.
Using this quilt as the "prototype", I tried out a new method of binding.
Two colours are joined and folded so one, the accent colour, peeks out from under the primary one.
Opposite to the way traditional binding is applied, this method begins by machine stitching it onto the back side first.
It is finished off by rolling it to the front and stitching "in the ditch" to attach it by machine.
I think it looks like a double-matted picture.
Using a thick fleece for the back, no batting was necessary as a middle layer.
The quilting gives the back a pleasing design.
