You may have noticed the previous post is a much longer video about this same quilt. That video takes you through the process of making this quilt from beginning to end. But I wanted to provide a virtual trunk show version for those of you who don’t want to sit through a 40-minute video. You’re welcome! 😁 This quilt is called Patchwork Memories and was created for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s fourth outdoor fence show called Recycle Reuse Reimagine. Although the design of this quilt is very simple, it’s a bit more complicated than it seems. Watch the video to find out why!
This quilt is called Patchwork Memories and was created for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s fourth outdoor fence show called Recycle Reuse Reimagine. This video takes you through the entire process of making this quilt, from initial idea to hand sewing the binding. Watch the video to find out why this quilt is very special to me!
I call this set of three quilts Jane’s Feathered Friends. My mom commissioned this quilt to hang over my parents’ bed. I designed a set of three panels with appliquéed birds, branches, and leaves. Hopefully the viewer gets the feeling of looking out three narrow windows over the bed to see a tree full of happy singing birds. Watch the video to find out more about this quilt.
This quilt was made for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s third outdoor quilt show that took place in October 2021. The theme of the show was “Come Together,” inspired by the Beatles song. I call this quilt Convergence. It is by far the most quilting I’ve ever done on a quilt, so I’m sure glad it was only 36″ by 36″! Watch the video to find out more details about how this quilt “came together.”
Welcome to Camp Coy was commissioned by my friends David and Ryan as a gift for the person who officiated at their wedding. What an honor for me! This is a wall hanging for their friend’s home up in the Adirondacks. Be sure to watch the video to hear all of the details about this reverse applique quilt!
This is my first t-shirt quilt, made from some of my husband’s MANY concert tees. I initially thought making a t-shirt quilt was going to be a huge pain, but it actually went very smoothly, especially once I figured out some tips I share in the video. So I guess that means you should watch the video to find out how this all came together! 😁
This quilt was made for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s second fence show where the theme was Earth Day. I made his quilt to bring attention to the global water scarcity crisis, and so I named this quilt Scarcity. Please check out water.org to learn more about this crisis that affects us all, whether we live in a water-rich or water-scarce area of the world.
This is another long episode because I’m talking about six quilts. These are mini quilts, all created based on prompts. I love making mini quilts because I can really experiment with ideas and techniques without committing to a full quilt. I highly recommend making them!! I’ve listed the names of the quilts and the time they appear in the video in the Description box on my YouTube channel, just in case you want to jump to one in particular.
This fourth video takes us on a little tour of the first bed-sized quilt I ever made — Caged Cacophony. It kind of all happened without any real plan at the beginning. In fact, I didn’t even plan on making a bed-sized quilt when I first started working on it. I’m a big fan of flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to designing and making quilts, and this quilt epitomizes that philosophy. Watch the video to learn more!
The third quilt in my virtual trunk show — Beyond the Machine — is very near and dear to my heart because it is the first quilt I designed myself. This quilt was made as part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the Brooklyn Quilters Guild. I wanted to make an industrial-looking version of the New York Beauty pattern, so I created a template that came together as cogwheels. Watch the video to find out more!
