Minecraft Quilt #83

today we are looking at Vicki's 
quilt...she has made this one for 
her son ...master J 

Like most kids that I know 
Master J is into the computer game Minecraft 
so Vicki decided that she was going to make him 
a quilt for his bed...Master J has some in put to 
the making of the quilt what was ok to go into it 
and what was not...this was a great quilt for Vicki to 
make as she is still fairly new to the world of quilting :) 

she has done such a wonderful job..
we used a variegated green thread and 
an all over quilting pattern called 
"cool Beans" 

we used a bright backing 
with the same green variegated thread so 
Master J can flip the quilt over if so 
chooses :) :) 

can't wait to see the pictures of the finished 
quilt in pride of place in

Needed some TLC Quilt #82

So have you ever had one of those quilts that 
have been love to within an inch of its life 
the quilt we are looking at today 
Belongs to Jill...

Jill contacted me to ask if i would be able 
to help her save her much loved 

after some emails and PM's back and forth 
we got under way 

Jill mailed her quilt to me
and I started to unpick the old quilting 

and take the old binding off 

we decided that stippling would be the best option 
I used a cream cotton and it blended really well 

then i was on the hunt for binding fabric 
to match or similar to the one that was on 
it originally ...YaY i found some...

after it was quilted we put a label on 
the back to tell its story 

as this quilt was originally purchase for Jill 
as a welcome to the world gift 28 yrs ago 
we put this information on the label 

I am sure that there will be soooo many more years 
to come of snuggle and cuddles under this gorgeous 
gift and now will be able to pass it on the the 
next generation 

I was very happy to help Jill with her 
much loved Teddy Bear Quilt

Another Mystery Quilt #78

As some of you may or may not know 
we have a weekly Mystery Quilt 
Club here at Darvanalee 

the members of this group 
are all members of a Facebook Group 
call "Just Us Quilters"

the have been running Mystery Quilts 
all year...so we decided to do them 
together rather than sitting at home 
by ourselves, there are 5 of us that do this
each Thursday :) 

this quilt that we are looking at today 
belongs to Gail from Wondai 
this was the second one that the 
group has done...

I love the colours in  this quilt 
although Gail wasn't sure...

the Quilting was was a joint effort...
Gail came and used Darvanalee's Machine 
as she wanted the pattern I had and her machine 
is a lot smaller than mine...
and this pattern was not going to stitch out for her 

we used a Yellow Varigated thread on the top and back of the quilt 
we also went for something completely differnt 
and used a Blue backing 
as you can see the backing with the yellow cotton 
is very striking ...bonus 2 quilt in one 

The end result is stunning :) :) 

I am off to quilt away the day

10 Min Block Quilt #77

a few months back we ran a class 
for the 10 min Block 
for our Beginners :) 

the Quilt we are looking at today 
belongs to Kathy...

Kathy has only just come to the world of 
Patchwork and Quilting 
but has very much fallen in love
with the hobby 

Kathy decided that she wanted to make a bigger 
quilt for her project 
Most of the other students went 
for smaller quilts 
and with her left over fabrics
she decided to do some 
matching pillow slips 
but using another technique 
called crazy patch 

we used an all over quilting pattern 
flower and stipple 
and used a cream cotton

it is very striking and I just love these fabrics :) 

I am off to my next quilt
