Then I made these for the women in my family. Each one is quilted with colors in her kitchen. I got the different patterns here. This was my first time to attempt free motion quilting. I hated doing potholders. It was just too small scale I think. I just did the binding on the machine instead of by hand. Much easier, but it doesn't look great!
All we could get Grandpa to say that he wanted for Christmas was a pie, so we decided to make him and Pop a plate with D's handprints on them. Ben designed the plates and we both painted them. I think they turned out great!!!
I made Nana a quilt. She said the only way she was going to get one was if she had a baby. What a surprise!!
It was my first attempt to free motion quilt on a quilt. It was a lot of fun and went much faster than the other ways I've quilted before. I think it turned out pretty good for the most part. It measured 48 x 64 and was designed by me--spools and pinwheels--my mom's favorites.
Here are both of the quilts stacked and folded. Love them!!
