I made this queen size Whimsical Bicycle Art quilt from a pattern by Sally Manke. This one is for my own bed! The wheels are each made from 72 Dresden wedges cut with a 10-degree wedge ruler. The bicycle, flowers and butterflies are all appliqué. I made it in the colors I wanted and added the floral corner blacks and yellow field to frame it and create the true queen size I need for my bed. The concentric blue and black borders contrast nicely with the lighter colors focusing attention toward the center. A couple of the pictures show the top as I was adding the border prior to quilting. I backed it Light Blue Floral quilt backing from our shop. Since I had butterflies on the quilt it just seemed perfect add dragonflies by quilting them with lime green thread! I made the binding from different prints used in the quilt. I finally made one just for me! 🙂
Ann Owens made this spectacular Christmas Throw featuring appliqué Christmas Trees, Reindeer, Little Red Truck, Stars, Snowflakes, Holly and more! Our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside the quilt sandwich and it’s backed with Tea Dye Quilters Blenders backing from our shop. I quilted it in a loose stipple for her. You do some amazing appliqué, Ann! 🙂
Sue’s Fall Dresden Plate & Appliqué Quilt!
Sue Coe made this Fabulous Fall Dresden Plate Quilt featuring appliqué harvest accents. The colors of autumn abound in this variation of the classic Dresden plate pattern. Double borders of a leaf print set in squares of complimenting colors and a marbled green showcase the design. I quilted it for her in Acorns & Leaves. It is a beautiful quilt, Sue! 🙂
Freida Ritter made this adorable Chicken quilt! It features cute chickens made from a variety of colorful prints appliquéd on a black and white chicken wire print that looks just like poultry mesh. It’s even sashed with strips of a print featuring chicken tracks! A band of white polka dots and red in the border completes the look. Naturally, I quilted it for her in a chicken wire design. The perfect chicken quilt, Freida! 🙂
Sue Coe made this wonderful quilt featuring beautiful butterflies made from handkerchiefs which she folded and pressed in the shape of a butterfly then appliquéd on the squares. The blocks are sashed with a petite lavender floral material which she bordered with concentric strips of a green butterfly print surrounded by a purple tonal floral print. Of course, I quilted it for her in butterflies with purple thread! You created a very pretty quilt Sue! 🙂
Inspirational Appliqué Quilt!
Ann Owens made this amazing quilt for a very special lady! It’s filled with inspirational bits of wisdom about life that Ann lovingly appliquéd on a wide variety of pretty fabric colors and prints. Many other elements of the design are appliquéd as well. The quilt contains a number of traditional quilt blocks as well. The entire design comes together to convey a beautiful message about love and life! It’s filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop and backed with our Overtone Gray on White Willowy Flowers Quilt Backing. I meander quilted it for her (a large stipple) at her request. A very special quilt, Ann! 🙂
Ann Owens made this incredible, vivid throw using the new Steam-A-Seam 2 fusible appliqué technique. She used a virtual rainbow of complimenting prints highlighted by the floral appliqués that are literally jumping out of their squares! I stipple quilted it in black for her. This throw is beautiful, Ann! 🙂
