Patience Corners from the Peacemakers in Noble, OK

I got a wonderful note from Mary Ellen Keck with photos of a Patience Corners quilt made by her church quilting group, the Peacemakers at First Baptist Church in Noble. Mary Ellen did the quilting and binding. This group makes and gives their quilts to many groups including the battered women’s shelter, to abused children and to the police to give to children who are taken away from their parents, to resthomes, and very proudly to the veteran’s home in Norman, Oklahoma for the men and women living there who have served our country. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone in that quilting group because I know that each and every one of those quilts is a dear possession to the recipients.

Here are some pictures of the quilt. They did a great job, and I love the colors. Don’t you love how the blocks seem to float on the background   🙂

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Hi Marjorie

    I just finished a queen size quilt using your instructions for this using the Go. Loved it.
    Have been following your you tube tutorials and have been very impressed with them, the markings of the dies long before the others.

  2. Marjorie, I love the Patience Corners directions you have on your website. I can hardly wait to make it. I love my go as it has allowed me to cut again. After having hand surgery for join replacement my fingers no longer hurt but are to weak to hold the ruler and cut with rotary cutter…

    now a question. how do you get those wonderful rounds circles for the quilting. I have a set of nesting templetes for the quilting but can’t figure out how to make them work…. I have what they call a med arm quilting machine. The Voyager from Hinderberg. Not as fancy as some but all I could afford for my quilts.

    Just love the quilt. It will be my next quilt. now to go and serch for fabrics… Glenna

  3. Barb, I’m so glad you got to use my instructions and that you are enjoying the Go. I love it too. Send us a picture when you get your queen size quilt quilted.

    Glenna, the Voyager is a wonderful machine, and I think you’ll find you can do almost anything with it. Many “longarmers” have that size machine (including me). Mine is a Hobby quilter by Nolting and was made before there were nice stitch regulators. Mine is retrofitted with a stitch regulator, but I usually just turn it on and quilt at the same speed for an overall.

    The round circles on the ‘Delirious’ quilt were done using Quilt EZ templates that I use from the back of the machine. I find circle templates hard to use too – although sometimes I do use them.

    Happy quilting!
