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!
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.
In this video, I show you some quilting tools that I kind of can’t live without. These are not the obvious ones like a sewing machine, rotary cutter, etc. These are tools that maybe you don’t absolutely need to make a beautiful quilt, but, man, do I find them super helpful! And rest assured I am not making any money in endorsements for these. (I mean, if someone wants to pay me for talking about their stuff, by all means, reach out. 😋) You can check out the links in the description section of the video to find out more about the items I discuss.
This is a very short video about my Rooftop Water Towers quilt. You can find out much more about this quilt by watching Episode 06, where I show you how I made it from beginning to end.
The next quilt in my virtual trunk show is called Baby’s First Chevron. This quilt was gifted long before I shot this video, so I can only show photos. I made this quilt out of a collection of chevron blocks that were made by members of the Brooklyn Quilters Guild for one of our block of the month raffles. Because I wanted the finished quilt to be bigger than the number of blocks I received, I decided to use this as an opportunity to design a more contemporary-looking quilt with a lot of negative space. Thank goodness for my design wall!!
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!
