Featured Member Quilts: February 26

John

This may be oe of the most beautiful tribute quilts made using neckties ever! We’d like to thank John Hambuch for posting. It was made by Tina. He writes, “Tina’s Ode to her father. Applique of neckties contributed by all the member of the family….hand quilted (twice, first a 2 inch quilt stitch and after a error was discovered a 1 inch quilt pattern). It took 8 month to finish…” and “the back side of the quilt has the names and remarks of Tina s family. The very little ones got a hand print….” This is a real inspiration to see. It’ll mean so much to all the family for generations. Each one of those ties has a story, too. Thanks, John and Tina for sharing it with us!

Linda

Linda Leach writes, “I just wanted to share this “Dresden Plate”,I finished the summer of 2012,,made with scraps from our shop where I enjoy quilting with a wonderful group of gals,,looks great on our king size bed.” One of our readers commented about how much work it was. We can clearly tell it was worth it. Times have changed from when a quilt was routinely made for a 3/4 bed. Now a king size quilt does take time. Linda also shared another quilt made for a grandson. She keeps the grandchildren warm in more ways than one. Thanks, Linda, for your post.

Monster
Yes, little boys do like funny looking monsters. A quilt like this is bound to be a hit when friends come over. This quilt was made by Karin Rodeheaver‘s husband for a grandson. It’s colorful and fun. Thanks, Karin, for sharing it with our community.

Gail
Gail Cartter posted this photo of the latest quilt she’s made. It is for her 2 year old granddaugther. Any child who loves little, happy dogs would be happy falling asleep on or under it. Thanks, Gail!

Drunk

From creative quilts for the wee ones, we’d like to end up tonight with a Drunkard’s Path…although there seems something wrong in doing so… It’s just that 24 Blocks loves this tradtional pattern done in red and white. The subtle pattern in the red fabric in this one by Theresa Johnson is going to give a depth to it. It is stunning. Thanks, Theresa for sharing the close-up with us.

We’d love to see your quilts, too! Just upload a photo to our Facebook page and tell us something about the pattern, if you know it, and the process of making it. If it was inherited or a gift, we’d love to hear the story that goes with it. Happy Quilting!
