The first picture is a photo of the completed 6″ Tumbler block quilt in a girly jungle theme made using my AccuQuilt GO!. The finished size is about 38″x48″or 9 blocks across by 8 rows down. I used one of the antique quilting stitches (#31) on my Pfaff 2046 and the stitch-in-the-ditch/edge joining foot to quilt down each seam line. It made for an interesting design on the back. I plan to use this same stitch again on the Tweet!Tweet! quilt, however, I will increase the stitch length to 3.0. AccuQuilt suggests you even up the sides before machine quilting. If you’re machine quilting on a domestic machine, I suggest you wait until your quilting is complete before removing the excess tumbler block material.
This is a scrappy quilt made from 5″charm squares given out during the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop, plus a few from my stash. Quilt was donated on behalf of my quilt guild to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Department in support of the guild’s community service mission.
This quilt was my first ever entry into the juried East Cobb Quilt Guild Show held in September 2009. It was machine quilted by Shannon Baker of Lucky Dog Stitches. Didn’t place, but received nice feedback from the judges and am already hard at work at my entries for the 2011 ECQG show!
This is a 4×4 rail fence pattern baby quilt. It is approximately 36″ square. These type of quilts are great for showcasing a theme or focus fabric along with two-four complementary colors. Here we have a yellow dog fabric with white/black pawprints and a blue swirl pattern fabric. The inner border is a stripe, which nicely frames the rail fence pattern.
