Lynda’s Whimsical Bicycle Art Quilt!


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! 🙂

Bonnie’s Teal & Orange Quilt!


Bonnie Lindsey pieced this delightful Teal and Orange queen size quilt which also incorporates a beautiful floral print with butterflies! Soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside and is backed with Baltic Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in butterflies for her with turquoise thread. A wonderful quilt, Bonnie! 🙂

Sue’s Butterfly Appliqué Quilt!


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! 🙂
