Staying Connected #17

The quilting continues …

From Linda R … Here are some pictures of my latest projects.

This is a small runner I made from my Temecula Quilt Co. Stay at Home Quilt Along blocks …

… This is a community quilt suitable for a man in a pattern created by myself, of course, using scraps …

… and this is an update of my Covid Village quilt. Requires 2 more rows and sashing. Getting there.

From Barb M … Product of our first Sew Our Stash At Home …

… Little baby quilt. A good project for such troubling times.

From Marianne …

I had this ready for quilting and started it after the (Sew Our Stash at Home on Zoom) meeting ended.

My daughter Andrea always wanted a poppy quilt for her classroom in November. She would ask me in October and of course, I did not get one done.

Before the lockdown this year, she went to Sechelt and brought back this panel and some fabric to go with it.

I think this is the one project that I finished right away. Since it is a panel, I concentrated on the quilting …

… In the middle of the flowers I stitched French knots.

From Genevieve … I have done a rail fence as a community quilt.

From Esther … This is my latest nearly finished quilt-to-be.

From Chris … I found this “Dog fabric” in my stash so made this Disappearing 9 patch for a friend. Didn’t have enough of the beige background for all of the blocks so some have a white background. Used the last of the small triangles on the back.

From Linda F … Here’s another scrap quilt that is based on a split nine patch. The pattern just has one more step, which results in this “around the world” design. I like the crisp structure you get by using black and white.

From Sonia … I have finally put-together the scraps of 2″ pieces and completed one single-bed quilt (measuring 70″ x 90″) and I’m half-way completing a second one. I’m so happy to be finishing this scrap quilt. The quilts are very colourful but they will require a lot of free motion quilting. Lots of fun still ahead.

Many thanks to Linda R, Barb, Marianne, Genevieve,
Esther, Chris, Linda F, and Sonia for contributing to this post.

And a thank-you to Marilyn for this wonderful video of frontline workers, the Vancouver Symphony and Dan Mangan covering The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love.”
