17.0 Meet my Quilts

July 6, 2011

The following quilts are going into the show this weekend titled with the following names:

Quilt #1:

Challenged by Yellow

28 X 14

I found Judy L’s (Patchwork Times online) monochromatic challenge for the month of January intriguing – Yellow!  Yellow!  Who makes a full yellow quilt?

Challenge is on!

Using Bonnie Hunters (Quiltville) Strip Twist pattern as inspiration, I made the 2 blocks (limited in size by my lack of yellow fabrics) and then found a black and yellow butterfly on my calendar, so I traced and appliqued it onto the top.

Quilt #2:

Make it Sew

6 X 17 X 12

I was inspired to make the style of cover by flossie blossom (on flickr) but wanted a machine cover that had the words “make it sew”.  Make it sew is a play on Start Terk Next Generation Captain Piccard’s famous line “Make it so”  So I added the Star Trek emblem to the front.

I had wanted to complete a spectrum quilt, and on Star Trek they refer to ‘dilithium’ a lot, so the embroidery on the front and back is dilithium – 2 lithium spectra.

The hole in the back is perfect fit for my machine.

Quilt #3:

Homeless Escher Steps in 3D

18 X 16

Pattern from

This is the first quitl I hand pieced which was a breeze.  1-2 sides a day every day after lunch, this took a while to piece, but I enjoyed doing it.

Pattern was absolutely perfect for my round table and then I got rid of the table 2 months after completing this quilt.

Named by blog readers.

Quilt #4:

Tilted Online Friendship (With Tribbles)

37 x 37

This was a swapped block from as the first swap of a group of Quilting podcasters and listeners.  Sandi (Colwell) pieced the tilted 4 patch blocks and I sashed the blocks and added the applique which I designed.

This quilt is my first attempt at quilt-as-you-go technique which caused some issues.

The gold hexagons I call ‘tribbles’ because they were multiplying like crazy for another project.  Even they could not stay away from this quilt.

Quilt #5:

Sunflower Patio Dreams

37 X 39

The leaves and the flower petals were from a pattern called “Delightful Daisies” by Bee Creative Studio which I muiltiplied, created a bud that was opened.

I designed the two flowerpots myself, using one of my flower pots as inspiration.

The birds are from ‘Award Winning Applique Birds’ by Panela Humphries and I envisioned this (quilt scene) as if I was looking out the window on a patio.

After searching online the daisies I made were way more like sunflowers which caused some confusion for a while on the title.

Quilt Auction Quilt:

Tweeting in the Crimson Sunrise

21 x 21

Pattern from Quilters

Otherwise known as “Ouch this hurts my eyes”


Will try to get a podcast around the ‘behind the scenes of a quilt show” by podcasting a little each day the next few days.  The Quilt Show starts Friday at Eudora Middle School and goes through Saturday afternoon.
