Christmas Yuletide Quilt Set

Christmas Yuletide Queen Quilt Set

Christmas Yuletide is a Queen Quilt Set which includes a 94″ x 94″ 9-patch log cabin quilt, 2 custom quilted pillow shams in a holly theme and 2 – 17″ patchwork pillows all quilted in a holly theme. This gorgeous quilt has a 12-15″ drape on a queen size bed. The red and green fabrics of the log cabin make a marked contrast to the light fabrics of the lob cabin design.  The 9-patch centers make for an unusual pattern of this log cabin design.  The solid red border framing the quilt is stitched in holly which makes an excellent accent to the quilt.

The coordinating red quilted pillows create a beautiful contrast to the quilt. I used an an irresdescent white thread to stitch the center motif in the pillow shams and along the outside cuff. The patchwork pillows are framed in red to compliment the shams and the quilt. The patchwork pillows are also quilted in a holly design.

This complete ensemble makes a stunning queen bed cover.

The “A Very Merry Christmas” embroidered center is the focal point of the rays extending through the red and green piecework of the star. Candy canes and sugar plums dance around the red border.

Note the scriptural verse of the quilt, Love Must Be Sincere, is quilted in the narrow border inside the star border. Each border star center is quilted with a design reflecting the important things in the couples lives.  The quilt is coordinated in the color theme of their wedding and has many quilted motifs hidden within it. Please read below for the descriptions of the quilted plan. Click on the individual pictures for closeups.

Shirley D’s Square in a Square Sampler

Shirley took one of our Square in a Square (SNS) technique classes and used it as the starting point for this quilt. Each block is made with the SNS design of squares and strips. No triangles were cut to do this piecework. Shirley combined the warm blends of blues, browns and reds to create the designs of this quilt.

The pieced back shows the advanced expertise of this quilt. Shirley used her extra blocks in a strip down the back of the quilt. We lined up the top and back to match the precise points. Click the pictures below to zoom in to see the details. Create your next quilt using the SNS method.

Here Comes the Bride

Michael and Danielle Miranda (WFU Law School, Class of 2013) came to see me last fall (2012) and brought the aisle runner from their wedding. A beautiful 100 feet runner from The Original Runner Co. Painted with vines, flowers and monogrammed names and date in the center. They asked me to find a way to preserve it. Is there a way it could be quilted?

I pondered for a while, determining how to best preserve the visual affect as well as the technical details of quilting around the three-dimension 8″ flowers. The pictures below illustrate the quilting details I created for this beautiful piece. Notice the echoing around their names and date, the hearts quilted in the open spaces and the diagonal lines which provides a modern appeal.

Congratulations, Michael & Danielle! Your aisle runner, now wallhanging, is an awesome reminder of that special day you committed your lives to one another! God Bless You!

Star in the Night Quilt

The glow of the star is created using the narrow and wide strips of the yellow and purple. The alternating direction of the diamond makes the inner star shine. The sparkle is made by the graduation from light to bold in the yellow fabrics. The purple fabric brings the night from soft to dark.

Each strip of the star is stitched in the ditch to highlight the layers of the color. The radiance of the star is surrounded by a floral quilting pattern with an occasional butterfly in the accent color.

The borders were designed with the fabrics of the star. The yellow diagonal strips follow the pattern of the star. Each border strip is individually quilted to showcase the flow of the motif.

Regal Splendor Quilt

Designed with the gold and purple of royalty, the quilting design of the blocks is a crown. The center of the blocks and the sashing centers are quilted in a daisy design.

I created this for the Heart of the Triad Quilt Show in 2009. It has won multiple awards in multiple shows.

Allan’s Quilted Tablerunner

Allan recently remodeled his home. He asked me to visit and see the tile work he had incorporated in the new design. It was wonderful. Laid out with small diamonds and rectangles, the theme flowed everywhere….from the focal point of the fireplace, library,  office and throughout the home.

He asked me to design a tablerunner that would fit with the new decor. So now I had a challenge…how to repeat the theme of the tile in the quilt. And this is what I came up with. The long narrow border of the diamonds matches the frame around the fireplace and the rest of the accent in his home. The shadow quilting in the center made for a nice linear contrast. Zoom in to see the detail.
