Zoom Show & Tell - April 13, 2021
This is a work in progress from more of the oriental fabrics I had left over, I also added some florals. Used up all of my fat quarters, now I have 1/4 yd pieces left which will be used with my Kimono when I find another pattern.
While searching through some drawers, I found this cute little snowman. It was just the snowman pieces already fused, so I fused it to a background and added the border. (It now has the binding sewn on.)
I recently finished my Coral Reef quilt by Quiltworx. It is paper pieced. The name of my quilt is “Hot Momma.”
This is the result. Since I used 6 Sashiki blocks I made measuring 12 1/2", I had to cut the Kimono to that size, so I was only able to get 2 blocks from the back. (I still have the rest for a further project.) Through the years I collected oriental fabrics and wanted to use them up too, so I added them to fill out the top, added sashing and corner stones, now it's a wall hanging. Problem: I don't know how to quilt this. Any ideas would be welcomed.
My older brother was stationed in Korea in the mid 50s and sent me this Kimono. I was about 8 or 9 at the time. I stored it away and always wanted to .make something out of it when I started quilting.
“The Kiss by Brancusi”. This playful quilt has everything to do with my granddaughter, my husband, Susan Kreiger, Joe Cunningham, and an Romanian dude named Brancusi.
Placemats for “The Airing”.
I also came across a bag of 2 1/2” strips, so decided to give the rug pattern a try. Fun, but quite a bit of work. My cat loves it! I cut up strips from leftover batting.
I made a table runner from Missouri Star Quilt Company, and then saw a free pattern for a wall hanging from Jordan’s Quilts. It was after the fact, but now I’m ready for next Valentines Day.
"Cardinals for Kevin“ Quilted by Susan Kreiger
This is a pattern called “Tiles” which looks so different every time I make one. The is Marcia Derse “The Blue One” collection.
This is the pillow I made for my daughter-in-law’s birthday in March. Her favorite flower is the sunflower.
This is the small name quilt/sign for my grandson. Last I looked his bedroom walls are yellow.
