December Share and Inspire

Since the FDQ Meetings have been cancelled for the time being,  the Share and Inspire space will be used to showcase items members have created while Sheltering in Place.  These are projects presented in December 2020.

Here is a quilt that I just gave my daughter  for her birthday.

Holly Harvey

King size “I Spy” quilt. The 5 inch conversation print blocks were made as “leaders and Enders” while making masks in Florida. I actually finished those before I ran out of masks to make. Will be sending to my nephew who has 3 young children after the mailing rush calms down. 

Made from charm squares that ended with 5” blocks, this is a calming yet perky piece.

Finally finished the hand quilting, Sashiko and binding in this one.

Cupcake Cuties have no calories. On felted wool, beads, French knots, with blanket stitch edging donated to Skyllkill Holiday auction in December.

Hidden Wells is the pattern for this jelly roll quilt- so well hidden that I’m showing a lot of the back because the blue quilting thread helps you find them.

Pat Clark

This is a Tree Skirt my daughter made for me. I bought her this Hunter Star pattern from Katrina Thomas when she presented at our Guild meeting last year. We were very happy how it turned out as this was Lisa’s first quilting endeavor. Katrina also quilted it on her LongArm. Notice the little snowflakes quilted with silver thread! It looks lovely under our tree.

The first quilt attached I made recently for my sister Margaret in her favorite colors. The pattern is called Bordered Diamonds by Kaffe Fassett, pieced with Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

The second quilt I made for fun early in the pandemic because I like the bright colors.

The third quilt is a Kaffe Fassett pattern called Kaffe's Garden, pieced in Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I have worked on this quilt for over 2 years and finally finished it during the pandemic.

The forth quilt is made from my stash in 4 different blue/white batiks and 4 white/white batiks. I worked on it over a year and finished it during the pandemic.

I am looking forward to the Judy Niemeyer project. ☺
