Patty your quilts are beautiful...I am new to quilting 3Yrs...I have a Kenmore and brother machine,I usually buy a quilt magazine and often take quilting classes..Right now I'm starting to do some Christmas quilts....
thank you Patty! Thanks also for explaining how you made the quilt. You are so talented in making all these pretty quilts! I have made some smaller ones in kimono silk, but now only concentrate in making my vintage greeting cards. Great to "talk" to you!
Patty, I am new to the site and seen your sports quilt and was wondering if would share any advice/tips on making one. For my little sister's graduation present I told her I would make her one. I would classify myself as a new sewer but I have taken some sewing classes. So far I have taken all of her team shirts and cut the team logo and #'s from the fronts and backs (square shaped). Most of the squares are the same size but some logo's were larger than others but for the most part there is maybe an inch (max.)difference. I was thinking of turning all the raw edges under and top stitching onto the top fabic of the quilt. Once that is completed I was going to sew the top and bottom with inner batting then turn right side and sew closer shut. Am I on the right track so far? I have never sewn the little swirly things that you would see on a regular quilt and would have no idea how to do that but was just going to use little tack point with DMC floss, most likely between each square at all 4 corners. I would greatly appreciate any advice or tips you may have. Your work is beautiful.
I am getting ready to do some appliqued Sue blocks for a swap in. I have done a mixture i am trying to get my curage up to start my first quilt. My wonderful hubby got me all the tools i need to start last christmas. I have loads of fabric both older and newer fabric. I also do little stuff like "bootie bags" and stuffed toys, etc. My hubby is trying to get me into upholstery too.
Hello! I love to sew, quilt, and embroider, and tripped over this site from Cyberquilters. I just had surgery on my left foot to remove bone spurs, floating bone and bone chips yesterday. I sent both my sewing machines to be serviced, and I am already going through withdrawls!!! I do have the yo-yo maker, so I will fill my time with making those for the stuffed animal patterns they came out with.
That is all I can think of for now, thanks for letting me join the group!
