Finished Mini Dresden Quilt

Finished Mini Dresden Quilt

on Sep 9, 2014 in Blog, commission, quilting | 4 comments

Here’s the Elspeth Baby Quilt.  Fingers and legs in the quilt photo.  Quilting has and assortment of Stripes, Crazy Worms, Pebbles and Trapunto.  The overall vertical design has three main bars, which is kinda cool because little Elspeth is the 3rd kiddo in the family. The dryer will be taking taking out those red lines in just a moment.      ...

Mini Dresden – Quilting

on Sep 4, 2014 in Blog, commission, quilting | 7 comments

Ooooh – I got to take my ELSPETH quilt top to my moms to use her super awesome Handi Quilter.  Normally, quilting a project this size would  have been done on my home machine, but the tension is doing something crazy. I need to take it in.  BUT can I just say, I love that HandiQuilter so much, maybe I subconciously broke the tension on my home machine so...

Mini Dresden – Trapunto

  Ok, this is the quilt layout.  I needed a design with enough white space to add in the baby’s name into the design.  I did this before on these quilts:  the Tessa Baby Quilt and the Weaver Baby Quilt.  In fact, this quilt is going to be for Tessa’s little sister, Elspeth. Neat name, right? My plan is to trapunto the letters, vertically on the...

  I’m making a baby quilt.  I don’t have it completely planned out yet, but that isn’t unusual. Here’s what I know:  I want to make mini Dresden Plate circles cut from a charm pack. 3 Dresden wedges can be cut from one charm.  The pieces are only 3 1/2″ tall, but they are so great and scrappy looking.   I started out cutting a...

Military Uniform Quilts

Final touches on the 5 commissioned military uniform quilts.  Name Tapes!  The client requested all 5 quilts have the same custom name tape on each quilt.  I think it will work like an “I Spy” type element, since the tapes don’t stand out against the quilts’ stripe design. I’m dropping them all off today.  Adios Quilty-Quilts.  ...

Remember those Jelly Rolls from last week’s post?  I had ordered those for a commission job.  5 Quilts using Military Uniform fabrics.  Oh man, these quilts are turning out pretty cool. The quilts are made in the style of the Jelly Roll Race or 1600 Quilts.  Here’s the kicker though, in order to get a quilt 80″ x 94″, I had to use more than...
