Tuffet class!

Hello Friends - I'm taking a tuffet class from Sonflower Quilts in Sylvania, Ohio on April 28 & 29. It's a really fun project and you start and completely finish the tuffet during this 2 day class. I made one tuffet already, but my daughter wants one to take with her to college - so I'm making another one. Call Sonflower to register: 419-885-4438. It is not hard - simple sewing skills are all that are required.

Photo quilt

Cindy H made this wonderful photo quilt. I quilted it with a freehand (not following a pattern) meander. Photo quilts are very difficult to quilt. You wouldn't want to quilt through the pictures and ruin them, yet you can't leave large unquilted spaces. So in this case I did a meander in all the areas around the pictures, then quilted in certain features within each picture.

O Christmas Tree wall hangings

Here's two beautiful "O Christmas Tree" wall hangings made by NancyDee M. We used gold metallic thread with the quilting pattern Christmas Bells, which accented the fabric and piecing. This was a class from Sonflower Quilts.

Alexander's Quilt

Carol G brought in her quilt, which she calls "Alexander's Quilt". We used a dark variegated gray thread for the quilting, which picked up the gray solid in the quilt top. She chose the quilting pattern Interlocking Weave, which was a great complement for the piecing.

Kyrsten's tshirt quilt

Kyrsten D brought in her own tshirts to me to make into a quilt for her. She chose a 3x5 layout, which makes a quilt that's abou 56" by 92". She chose an emerald green sashing to go around the tshirts - it works as a neutral because none of the other tshirts are that color. SHe also chose the quilting pattern Geometric on Point with a navy blue thread.
