"Sweet Pinwheels", quilted by Mary. Her friend Wendy gave her a charm pack of flowered fabric and she used the Twister Tool to make these pinwheels.
"Starbucks Flowers" made and quilted by Marilyn Hamilton. Marilyn says you can find inspiration anyplace. The restroom at her nearby Starbucks had a great poster on the wall, so she took a picture and turned it into this wall hanging. All the stitches are different with a diamond crosshatch for the background.
Lynne made "San Antonio River Walk", (AKA Kate Spain's Grand Canal) for her sister, Patti Singer. She wanted to make a quilt for her sister's 60th Birthday. She doesn't usually buy kits, but when she saw this one, it reminded her of San Antonio the the Riverwalk there, which is close to where her sister lives. She quilted it on her custom long-arm machine.
Lynne made and quilted this "Hole in One" out of her Husband's golf shirts. He is an avid golfer and finally make his Hole in One! He also collects golf shirts the same way she collects quilt fabric. So, when he got rid of some of the older golf shirts, she cut the logos off and made a Golf Shirt Quilt in honor of his Hole in One. She used her custom long arm machine for the quilting.
"Hot Air Balloon Mobile" Linda made this mobile soon after her husband passed away suddenly. She made it for her daughter who was pregnant. It was a very healing project for her and took countless hours to complete! After several attempts at making her own pattern, she found a pattern online. She chose fabrics in the colors of the nursery and embellished the balloons with lace from her wedding dress, crystals from her Daughter's wedding bouquet, room from a gift from her Mother-In-Law, a gold shamrock in honor of her husband's Irish heritage. She feels really proud of this "Labor of Love".
"Green Tea & Sweet Beans, pieced and quilted by Kathy Stolhand. Her first and probably only Jen Kingwell pattern. It took about a year to make, but it is one of her favorite quilts.
Made and quilted by Anne Tracy for her first Great Grandchild - Noa Robert. This will be his quilt with a matching receiving blanket and a knit elephant.
