Peachtree Road Race t-shirt quilt

This is a t-shirt quilt I just finished quilting. I have always wanted to record myself quilting, but never figured out how to do it. Normally the camera records my arms and not the quilting machine. This time I put the camera at chin level between the frame and myself. It made quilting a bit difficult, but I did get a short video. After that I had a little fun playing with my video software (Nero), and was able to add a slide show of the shirts. Can you believe one person has run the same race every year for 30 years? I’m impressed.

Now, I’m off to do the binding on this quilt this Monday morning.

Courthouse Steps Baby Quilt

This is a repeat of a quilt that I showed you in 2008. It is a baby quilt that I made for my great niece. It has a Teddy Bear theme. I’ve been looking at it and thinking I would make another similar quilt. I have a fair number of orphan blocks, so thought you might like to see it again. I uploaded some better photos and have the EQ6 file here (click to download).

The star blocks are the Maverick Stars from Quiltville.com and the courthouse steps are blocks that I made myself.

Rail Fence Set on Point

This is a quilt that I just finished. Mother pieced it and I quilted it. When I started, I wanted to do something different in the dark blue and the light areas of the quilt. I tried doing a continuous curve (cc) design on the dark blue, but doing it with templates was taking forever; and I was not pleased with my freehand stitching. In the end, after sewing all the rows, I decided to unstitch all of the cc and start over with an edge to edge design. What I decided to do was the freehand version of one of my intelligent quilting digital designs, Tilt-a-Whirl which is swirls topped with feathers. It’s one of my favorites and one that I love to stitch.
