Piecemakers Row Quilt – 2013

Posted Sunday, July 14th, 2013 in Scrap Quilts | Read More

Piecemakers Quilt Group made two row quilts in the past. We chose a color scheme, background fabric, and pattern. Each person chose the row they wanted to make and we added our own fabrics to the row. This has been a favorite project for the group and we wanted to make another row quilt.

I found a pattern in an old magazine and took it to the group. The pattern was approved by the group but there were not enough rows for each person to do an entire row. We divided the rows to fit the number of members. Jeannie and I are working on the same row. I am making the people and she is making the hearts.

We didn’t care for the pattern for the people in the pattern. I found patterns for boys and girls in a quilt book by Nancy Johnson-Srebro¬† and used them for my blocks. Jeannie and I used the same fabric for the background but the other fabrics are from our fabric stashes.

Jeannie’s hearts will go between the children in our row.

Stayed tuned for further updates to the Row Quilt.

Relay for Life Quilt – 2010

Posted Friday, April 23rd, 2010 in My Projects, Patterns, Quilt Blocks, Quilt Guilds | Read More

Every year since 2006, Piecemaker Quilt Group members have made a group quilt for Relay for Life. The team from St. John’s Lutheran Church raffles it as one of their fund raisers. Colleen co0rdinates the project and provides the fabric. Each member of Piecemakers makes one or more blocks and Colleen puts the quilt top together. I quilt it and embroider a label and Colleen puts the binding and label on it. This year the quilt top contains thirty-six 12 inch blocks plus a three inch border around the outside edge. We used three purple fabrics and the Road to California pattern.
