My Favorite Things

Last year I attended the AQS quilt show in Columbus, Ohio with my daughter. I purchased a pattern for a trio of quiltlets from Quiltricks. The previous year I bought the pattern for the “Pin Up” quiltlets. I made the pin up pattern as soon as I returned home and planned to do the same with the new pattern. I chose the fabrics and traced the pieces onto Wonder-Under. For some reason this project was set aside and forgotten until I cleaned out my sewing room last week.  So…yesterday I fused the pieces onto the background and machine blanket stitched around each piece. Today I hand stitched the binding to the backs of the pieces.

I will display the quiltlets in my sewing room.

“Pin Up” Quiltlets – A quilt pin display

Bob and I drove to Gahanna on June 16 to visit Jennifer and Tristan. Jennifer and I went to the 42nd Annual NQA quilt show at the Greater Columbus Convention Center the next morning. We took lots of pictures of quilts and bought lots of neat quilting items. The item that really caught my attention was a pattern by Quiltricks, a trio of quiltlets to display a quilt pin collection. They are displayed on a tabletop quilt rack.

Bob and I returned home on Saturday evening. The next afternoon I went through my scraps and cut out the pieces for the quiltlets and pieced and quilted the tops. On Monday after work I completed the binding, hand stitching it to the backs of the quilts.
