Play Ball! (started May, finished June 2016) was a grade 12 graduation gift for a boy that loves baseball. This quilt made use of the logo on the front of his Blue Jay t-shirt, as well as the team list from the back. If you are thinking of doing a t-shirt quilt, this is a nice pattern. I used 4 different fabrics – cotton knit, cotton flannel, quilting cotton and fleece on the back. It will be a nice quilt to snuggle under while watching baseball on TV.
Sister Act I & II were done simultaneously (started August 2015; completed June 2015): Sister Act I was done from a kit; Sister Act II was done with batiks that I had on hand. Sister Act II was given as a 25th wedding anniversary gift. This is a pattern by JayBird Quilts. The first was a kit, using 107 different colours of Kona cotton, the second was done with Batiks. Both quilts were quilted by Donna Reznik of Inthreadible Quilting.
Primitive Patches (started September 2015; finished January 2016): Love, love, love this quilt on cold winter nights. Made with quilting flannel on the front and minke on the back. The pattern is a simple disappearing 4 patch. It was quilted by Donna Reznik of Inthreadible Quilting.
Anne’s Garden (started 2015; finished 2016): This quilt is in honour of my mom. I used one of her old quilts to make the pattern and I quilted it in a simple cross hatch pattern, with meandering in the border. Anne’s Garden was raffled off to someone who subscribed to my blog. No strings attached. I appreciate the time and effort of those who read my posts.
Simple Symmetry (Started 2013; finished 2016): You may be familiar with Paula Nadelstern’s work with bi-lateral symmetrical fabrics. I started this in one of her classes and then didn’t have enough fabric to make 3 designs in any row so this project stalled. In the end I decided to make 5 rows with 2 repeats instead of 3 repeats. It doesn’t give you the visual impact but done is better than not.
