Red and White Tumbler Wall Quilt


Do you know someone who's collecting red and white quilts? Here's my latest, a Tumbler wall quilt. It measures 33" x 38." You can see it in my Etsy shop. I haven't made a pattern yet for this quilt. I like the crisp points. Oops, the quilt is upside-down in these photos (which only matters if you want to use the sleeve to hang it.)

Cynthia's Sunshine Quilt


This beautiful Sunshine quilt was made by Cynthia Meredith in Texas. Great fabrics and lots of Baptist Fan quilting. The backing, shown below, is a soft and quiet Amy Butler print. Great job!

Patriotic Quilt Show - Happy Independence Day!


I gathered these patriotic quilt photos from Google Images for our own little Selvage Blog quilt show.
Please help yourself to some virtual picnic foods and your favorite beverage.
Be sure to try the strawberry shortcake (no carbs or calories!). 





Unfortunately these images didn't have the names of the quilt-makers.

Nice job, Martha!

Another Quilt Finish and a Useful FMQ Tip


Here's another wall quilt (33" x 39") that I made to practice free-motion quilting skills.


Here's a fmq tip for you: Leave the feed-dogs up and set the stitch length to "0."
It seems wrong but I tried it both ways and this is better! It's a big help.
