    I made this quilt in 2016 for my youngest son’s wedding. I adapted a Christmas pattern by Suzn Quilts. It was displayed at the venue with the other decorations. I titled it “Eli and Misty Tie the Knot”.

    I had fractured my ankle, my husband brought me my new bolt of fabric which I cut into 9” squares, and I sat and sewed by hand. It took 1 hour to sew the first origami square, after 2 hours was able to sew the window in. A fun car craft on our many trips.

    This was my second quilt. It is my interpretation of a sunset. Pattern was Mojave from a book of quilt designs.

    The person I made this quilt for did not care for traditional quilts so we finally came up with the idea to add to her Harley collection by adding a quilt to it.

    This took me three years to complete
    I saw this made in a quilt shop in Branson and fell in love with it. Bought the pattern there, the fabrics in Sugarland, TX. It took me three full years to complete, it was really difficult for me, so I would put it away and come back to it months later. It was quilted by Candace Blanton at Sew it Seams in Port Arthur, TX. She just bought her long arm, and learned so much. We are both very pleased with the results.

    I started this several years ago and it took a guild challenge for me to finally finish it. It was an original design.

    Began this quilt in 2008, time passed and I forgot about it. My aunt called and wanted a small table quilt in blue and white. Remembered this one and completed it the next day.

    I think my son will like the design since it’s very modern, took a class to help with the piecing. I made coordinating pillow cases using the background Kaffe fabric with the pillowcase cuff being stained glass windows.

    Thanks for giving me place to show my work. The colors are very brilliant, on front and back, fell in love with the design the moment I saw it hanging in the quilt shop. Glad I challenged myself, took the class, and finished the project in a few months.

    Made this for my son while he was serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. It was fun to remember all the Orchestra trips I went on and how hard he worked in Academic decathlon, remembering his soccer playing years, remembering when I was his Cub Scout leader, helping out in his school classes, ext.

    This quilt is in the tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright. The middle window is in the living room of the Charles Ennis house in Los Angeles, and the side windows are library windows. The “leading” black fabric starts out at 3/4″

    Pattern available on my website: http://www.sewgocreate.com It’s called “Salute the Colors” and was my first quilt quilted on my new mid-arm machine. I call the elongated snowall a “Pocket Lozenge” because the corners are folded for a 3D effect and oblong like a lozenge. Very versatile pattern–I plan to make it again in aquas with bright pink, yellow, lime and purple pinwheel corners, still saluting the colors but not the flag colors.

    Christmas Water Globes is the first quilt i ever started, over 30 years ago, designed from a picture in a House of Fabrics add. i got the front put together, but didn’t have the room to finish, nor did i know what to do. a quilter friend finished it for me (edge, batting, backing, trim, quilting) last year.

    In a previous comment (before I found the place to submit photo), I accidentally typed “snowall”–I, of course, meant snowball. OOPs! I actually started this quilt about 20 yrs ago but had no way to quilt it until last year when I bought a quilting machine. I made stars and flags in red on the white area, but don’t look too closely because it was my first attempt!

    This is my first quilt made with two Batik Jelly Rolls, using the Jelly Roll Race method. It took a little while to get the diagonals right, but I love the random design and it does go pretty quickly, once you get the hang of it! This is a great quilt method for new quilters.

    I’m a fairly new quilter and wanted to take my skill to the next level. Working with triangles and therefore the bias of a fabric has proven to be the most challenging. With the help of my fellow quilters doing the same challenge, I really did learn a lot and definitely improved by skills by the end of the challenge. I may do this one again, only the larger quilt!

    I got this pattern from a Youtube tutorial by Sew Yeah. Didn’t take long to piece, but my long arm messed up before I could finish the quilting, so I had to rip out 5 or 6 rows and start over 🙁

    I finished this gift for a coworker 2 months after her birthday. She Loves Halloween and I fell in love with the feet fabric then when I tied it together with the witches shoes and “If the shoe fits…” wording I was in love with it. It is a 2 sided wall hanging / table runner, the other side is radiating fabric from a square center. It was as much fun to make as it is to look at.

    I made and quilted this for my granddaughter as a wedding gift. She chose the pattern and fabric. It is my take on the “Origami Oasis Starry Migration Quilt” by Tamara Kate Designs. The pattern is for a throw so I had to do some math and rearranging for Queen Size.

    I have been making quilts for over forty years, all by hand. I only use a machine to sew large sections together. My stitches are not quite as close together as they used to be but I still work at it with love. I do not sell them but give them away.

    FINALLY! Thanks to internet and printable fabrics I have been able to finish the quilt top for my World Quilt, Bucket List. Each block contains squares with iconic symbols or landmarks of a country or region of the world. The center squares each contain a silhouette of an unmistakable image from that country/region. The center is the world surrounded by ocean. The border is very bright sky blending from a gold lame` sun in the upper right, to a midnight dark sky with silver lame` moon in the lower left, with stars. Now to decide how to quilt it! LOL!

    I absolutely LOVE this! I have some drawings that my son made for me when he was much younger (he’s 19 now), that I was going to scan in and print on Spoonflower fabric, to use in some wall quilts for my sewing room, but I really love how you completely turned your granddaughter’s drawing into an art quilt. I would love to be able and figure out how to do something like this!
