The maker of this quilt-in-progress kept saying "I'm not as good as all of you, but some day I hope to get better!" Well, in my opinion she doesn't have a thing to worry about - she's already there!
I don't know about the rest of you, but when I quilt, I do me! There's no one else exactly like me...
Every year Jennifer does a t-shirt quilt for the National Education Association (NEA), which they raffle off at their annual meeting.
They send her loads of t-shirts - she chose to use a blue, white and red theme this year.
Check out the back!
There's one, the black one in the middle, that has lots of bling that would have given the LA problems.
Appliqueing it on the back was a clever way to incorporate it into the quilt after it was long arm quilted.
You gotta love this pattern!
It's a four-patch using sightly elongated blocks; those narrow strips are the sashing.
Maxine did needle turn applique on these, I love em!
Wholecloth never looked better! Elsie added beading to the middle of the flower...
Maxine chose this easy wholecloth piece to make a quick and easy service quilt.
Bird houses and stars! I love those colors Jeanette used.
See the quilting detail.
That's it for now, thanks for letting me share guild eye candy with you. Sew forth and sew on til later!
