Granny's  Tip of the Month!

You May Want to Go Get Yours

Ok, gang, got a cup of coffee ready?  Hope these JPEG's didn't take too long for you to download.  I'll try to provide a picture and description of each quilt, approximate date and pertinent and "unpertinent" info with each.  Also, let me remind you that all my stuff is copyrighted and I can get really cranky if I find anyone selling or misusing my designs (and so can my attorney).

#18.  Nite-Nite Express - This took a while to design the pattern.  Lots of piecing here.  Not for beginners.  Or maybe ok for "confident" beginners.  My 3 year old #3 grandson is crazy for trains.  "Thomas the Train" is his favorite movie.  That tape isn't going to last much longer.  He's going to wear it out playing it over and over.  His birthday is April 30, so this is for him.  This is the top before machine quilting by my friend, Regina.  I'll try to photo "after" also.  It has 4 trains with sashing in between and a "track" border.  If I had not been in a hurry to get it done, I would have spent more time embellishing.  This one is similar to "House Hunting" in that it cries out to be embellished.  I did put some little kids print of little boys as the engineers and a couple of passengers.  Next time (and I know his little brother is going to want one too) I'll put some cars or toys on the flat cars, maybe some airplanes in the sky, all kinds of different passengers, animals and people on it.  This pattern is available on the pattern page, and also a shorter "baby" version and a wall hanging. 

    #19:  Diana Sheldon's Simple Scrappy Pleasures Wall Hanging - Isn't it cute?  Not entirely plaids, like my pattern.  This is Diana's own.  She is a very nice lady who tests some patterns for me.  We met on the Scrap Quilting Forum, and we chat mornings about all things "quilty" & sometimes things not so "quilty". lol.  I'm quilting this one for Diana, sort of as payment for her testing services.  But mainly I just itched to quilt it.  A small project, and it's quick quilting it too.  After quilting on this one, I've got to have one of my own for sure.

    

 

    #20:  Diana Sheldon's 9 Patch Wonder Quilt Top - simple and gorgeous.  This is recipe #3 on the 9Patch Wonders pattern.  Light White-on-white or Cream-on-cream 3" squares and jewel tone dark 3" squares.  All assembled into 9 patch blocks and then into rows according to the quilt "recipe".  I've made several of these for church quilting projects and they are gorgeous after simple straight-line quilting too.  She plans to have it machine quilted with a "meandering" pattern.  She's working on another one now and using whites & pinks.

    #21:  Eden Mennonite Church - Broken Star 2002.  This is one I made from solid colors.  The background is a mulberry color and the star sections all solids.  The close up shows the heart-shaped feather quilting they are going to quilt into it.  This will take them a little time I'm sure.  I understand this will be donated to the annual Mennonite Central Committee State Relief Sale in Enid next November.  I love making broken star quilts.  And when the hand quilting is feather stitching designs, it makes an exquisite quilt.

 

           These are just some of many, of course.  We will be adding more as time goes by, so check back often.  Thanks for your time!!
