Diann’s Quilts

Diann is a very sweet lady with a big heart and she is also a very productive quilter! Seems like she is always making a quilt for a friend. Some of the quilts pictured below are quilts Diann made and some were hand pieced and embroidered by her mother and are very special to her. Diann added the borders and finished them up so she will always have them as special treasures in memory of her mother.

Most pictured below have hand guided custom or free motion quilting and a few were quilted with pantographs between 2013-2017.

Babies, babies, babies!

July 2017

Our first great grand niece arrived in Dec 2014 and the babies just keep coming! Another great niece and nephew arrived in 2015 and just now our first granddaughter arrived. So I have been a busy, baby quilt making bee these past few years. Lots of pink, purples and minky! Most are simple free motion quilting. The chevron quilting was done with a ruler. The snowflake pantograph is Let it Snow by Patricia Ritter – Urban Elementz

Birds of a Feather Challenge Quilt 2016

Me, Donna, Valerie and Barb with our challenge quilt Feb 2016

Every year since 2013 I have met my good friends Donna and Barb at the Birds of a Feather Longarm Event hosted by Valerie Schlake of The Longarm Network. In 2016 as part of a challenge we designed this friendship block quilt via a group text, Donna embroidered the center design, Barb pieced the quilt and I wrapped it up with some free motion quilting and ruler work using my favorite BFF ruler from the Quilted Pineapple. It was a lot of fun to work on together. Afterwards I made two Bionic Gear Bags inspired by the quilt for Donna and Barb.

Quilt designed by Barb Burdette, Donna Hutto and Tracy Bell. Quilted with 2 layers of batting with the top layer of wool. Magnifico and Glide thread.
Embroidery design was purchased from Urban Threads.
