Phebe Quilt - Di Ford

First let me say this is one gorgeous quilt and I wish it was mine but it isn't.  This quilt was made by Suzanne Cook and quilted by Deb Wendt.  The pattern is by Di Ford.  I have my center started and this quilt makes me want to dive right in and finish it.  Goal is sometime in 2015 to 2016.  Let's be realistic here and little bit.

Dresden Turkey Tablerunner

This is one of Joan's quilts.  It is made from a pattern by Jan Patek.  I was going to do pumpkins in the border but decided to do feathers instead.  All the applique was outlined.  Small meander in the background.

A Little Free Time

Finished a few things that had been piling up over the years.  The Harriet's Baskets was all finished except for the sashing and borders.  I fussy cut around the birds to have them all basically in the same spot on the seam allowance.  I think I measured from the feet. The border fabric is an older Jo Morton design that reminds me of the 70's but it worked with my quilt.

 Laid the fabric on the longarm to determine where I wanted the birds to be in relation to the baskets.

 The crazy looking birds.  This project was on hold for a few years because I didn't have enough bird fabric then low and behold it showed up again at Common Threads Quilt Shop in Waxahachie.  Needless to say I have plenty, plenty, plenty left over.

The basket handles were made with a bias tape maker and then machine stitched in a matching thread.  Very easy.

The back, I used Floral Gatherings 108" wide fabric in the tan (tallow?) colorway.  I just love wide backing.  I have enough to do another quilt.

Mom's Quilt

This is one of the first quilts my mother made.  It is a king size log cabin.  It took me almost 2 months to quilt it (off and on with holidays and such).  I did the entire quilt free hand.

Mom is also limited to table runners this year!
