Jasmine Star - Quilting

Jasmine Star Quilt

Quilting

Quilting has begun on the Jasmine Star.
This is the outer most border.
Out lining the floral and leaf designs.
 Using burgundy on the flowers and green on the leaves.
 Took a whole day to do one side of this
king top, and began the flowers.  
Like how it is looking.
BUT a lot of work.
 Not sure yet what I will do in the middle.
Stitch in the ditch for sure.
Design, guess it will evolve. 

Two weeks to get it done, so it can go in the show.
Wish me luck.

Jasmine Star Quilt

Jasmine Star Quilt

Update

Center of top completed.
 Working on 24 star blocks
for the outer border.
 The star blocks are done, I am not good at 
doing the same thing over and over, so these 
took awhile.  Below; one of the corners
that go around the center.  These went together fast.
 Top is nearly done.
To big to fit on my design wall so 
here it is on our king bed.
So pretty.
2 more borders to add then onto
the quilting. 
Wish I could get a better picture, 
will have to wait until it is hung up at the quilt show.
A lot of great quilting opportunities here.

I am putting this up for sale, 
so if anyone is interested let me know.

Jasmine Star

Jasmine Star Quilt

I am working on the Jasmine Star Quilt
designer is Marianne Elizabeth Nashua

I found this quilt in Quiltmakers Magazine 6 years
ago and fell in love with it.  Yes it is on the cover.
First kit I had ever purchased.


Can you see why, I fell right in love with this design.
So me.

So it has taken me a while to get to it.
But better late then never.

Spent several weeks working on the cutting out process.
My husband thought I was nuts, 
but in reality it was an enjoyable process and
really makes one pay close attention.  LOL.  


Our quilt group has a retreat at the end of January
and that was my goal to begin this top.
It will be a king size when done.

So here are some of the blocks
The center block.


There are 4 of the cream and raspberry and
4 of the block with the 4 patch in the middle
This is an on point design.
Center is finished and first border is on.


Just started sewing together the green blocks, took a bit to 
get all the components made, tons of flying geese units
24 green blocks (see design) to make.

It will be nice to have another quilt for our room.
I may see about selling this first though.  

I hope to have it finished for our quilt show at the end of May.

Stay tuned.

Rag Quilt

Rag Quilt and T's Bed

A grandma must share the creative work of her grand children.

First up is Tristan's handy work.
He is 14 and loves to build things 
and cook.
He is also a hunter and takes
care of every aspect of the hunt.

The kids (son-in-law and daughter) have
been making pallet items.  So
T decided to make some things,
a book case
and his new bed 
(head board is out of pallets)

 It was a long wait, but fun opening the box with the quilt
he requested.
 This is the base of his bed, and he made it.  Dad 
helped with the last phase, which was spraying the finish on.

 The dresser to the right is another project, T sanded it
down and refinished it.
 All together.  Talent seems to run in the family.
I have to show you next the table his big brother 
designed and built.  

These two love working with their hands
it is good to see these skills developing.
They had a hand in building their new house with
their mom and dad.

Rag Quilt Finished

T's Rag Quilt

Finishing touches.

Good grief where does the time go?  
I thought it had been only a couple weeks since I last posted.
Well, I guess I did a lot more sewing then I thought as well.

Tristan's quilt is finished.
This one big quilt.
I constructed the top half, 
washed and dried it and then
the second half, then joined them together.

Being made of all flannel it is heavy, is also very big, 
so to keep from stressing my washing machine I decided to
do it that way, worked out great.
As it washed I stood over the washer with a hand strainer
to help get all of the lint and threads that come loose from
the cut ends.  Working the strainer thru the water the whole
time, I did not want this stuff going down the drain and causing a clog.
Then once in the dryer, I checked the filter every 5 minutes or so
You would not believe how much came off this quilt.
It would have clogged the drains for sure.

 I like how it has turned out, and it will be
warm and comforting to Tristan.
Some details below.




 There were enough squares left to make a pillow sham,
not washed yet in this picture.
I will also make some pillow cases with remaining fabrics to 
complete the set.

Not sure what is next on the quilting horizon. 

I did buy a kit several years back and I think I will begin that.
So I guess I will have to let you know what I decide on.  
Thanks for stopping by.

Have a blessed day.

T's Flannel Rag Quilt

T's Flannel Rag Quilt

Making a rag quilt for my grandson
Seems he likes his dad's so much he hijacked it.
So he needs one of his own.
T picked most of the fabrics, some came from my stash.
Half done here.

Using the Accuquit for cutting all the pieces. 
Each block has 3 layers of flannel, 2  orange and one  print.

 Placing the fabric and cutting 4 at a time

The die cuts the fringe, much easier then using scissors.  
Enough on each cutting for 2 blocks.
Some of the prints we are using


Each block is sewn with an X which is the only quilting
 holding the quilt together.

Sewing the X in chain fashion
One of two stacks of sewn blocks. 
Adding some embroidery to a few of the blocks



Have been working on getting the rows together 8 done
8 to go.  This should be a cozy quilt.
T loves all things hunting, can you tell.
My design wall will only hold half of this queen quilt.
