I was asked to make a quilt for Project Linus. A novelty fabric was supplied. I chose to use my scraps to make a scrappy baby quilt – I really like scrappy quilts. Most of the novelty fabric went on the back of the quilt. I even used the different stitches on my machine (finally!) to quilt it all together. You can see the different stitches on the photo – less than stellar, but stitched with the best intentions:
And a friend of mine belongs to our local Master Chorale. They are doing some fundraising, so I made a Christmas quilt for their raffle. I followed a tutorial by Missouri Star Company, and made it like this quilt I saw in blogland. There are only nine blocks, but they are huge, so the quilt ended up being pretty big. I rented a longarm and quilted Christmas trees & stars all over ( some designs are very forgiving, like this one). And I appliqued a folk art angel on the back – so cute!
