August 2012 quilts

Carolene shared a quilt she made for a grandson's wedding. There are three of each block in different sizes in this quilt. She used scraps for the blocks and she hand quilted this herself.

Linda said this Irish Cross pattern quilt took her a year to make. Linda also quilted this herself by machine.

Julie brought a woven shirt she made and embroidered herself. She said she did the hand embroidery 20 years ago. She also said she entered this shirt in the fair at one time and it won a blue ribbon.

Julie also finished a quilt using the exploding rail fence technique. Part of the inside border is made with half-square triangles matched so the strips run in the same direction.

Just for fun, Tiffany sewed this cute owl rice bag to show us. 

Tiffany also showed her quilt top made from a Moda jellyroll. She said she used a glue stick to hold the applique pieces in place and she sewed the edges when the glue dried.

Rose used leftover fabrics from other projects to create a scrappy disappearing nine-patch blanket for a baby boy.

Rose also made this bright, scrappy spiderweb quilt for her grandchildren to play on.
