Quilt Projects Mostly CompleteOMG, I really have to update this blog. It's a little embarrassing, but that's okay. I have the someday I will retire and have time to blog, lean and quilt! I am sure I have over 15 quilt tops to quilt, over 40 blocks in process and less than 15 actually finished quilts. I just don't totally know (date 7/6/2016). Someday I'll check...NOT.
Here I am at my Sweet Sixteen Quilt machine. I think I was posing for the camera, but that is my son-in-law quilt on right that I was going to work on.
A recent tote I made for my daughter Chelsea. I thought it would be great for her boat rides since it's mainly made of mesh.
Below is the quilt I made for my son-in-law Fernando. He is a policeman for San Antonio. I love this fabric on top and used some novelty cowboy and policeman fabric on back. When he got the quilt, he thought the backing was the front, which is great!
Here is a baby quilt I made for a Navy family friend of over 35 years! This was for their first grandson Julian. I love the little anchor and I quilted anchors throughout. I wanted this quilt to be more modern looking than my scrappy style.
Below is my Owl Quilt top a BOM from Material Obsession. I did not have room to add the bottom layer. I have not added backing yet, but I think it's awesome and I learned quite a few techniques. It still hasn't been quilted, but I love this quilt to so much, I'm waiting for my quilting skills to get better.
Below is my self portrait mini-quilt I did for an online quilt group. I love how it came out. I had this small quilt stored in a basked with some other stuff when I want moving houses. My cleaning people threw everything away that was in the basket. It was too late when I noticed the bin was now empty! Sigh, I'll make another and do even better next time.
Here is the product of my journal class at the Queen's Ink in Maryland. Most of the pages look unfinished, but remember the point of the journal is to get some collage started on the pages, so you won't be intimidated by a blank page! It was so fun and simple to do. Of course I can still go in and gesso, paint, add fabrics, tape, ribbon.....
Here I am showing you what I used to create my travel journal, using the Remains of the Day (ROD) class techniques. You can click on this title to link to Mary Ann Moss website if you are interested in her online class. PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR LACK OF EDITING OF SOUND IN FIRST JOURNAL, IT WAS MY FIRST RECORDING! I hope you enjoy!
Did I mention I have a beautiful granddaughter? I will create a slide show of all the picture I used in her book of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes. This was my first digital scrapbook project. It really wasn't too difficult after I purchased digital elements from various artists.
