This is a pattern that was in McCall's Quick Quilt, Issue Aug/Sept 2014. A friend and I got together and made these. How fun it was!! It is made using a Twister Ruler. It was actually completed in July of 2014.....maybe before the magazine actually hit the stores!! It was quilted on my Nolting 24 Pro which is computerized.

Sled Design
Sled Design
A friend was making a wallhanging with the sleds on it. This was an extra sled that she had already put the wonder under on. I couldn't let that go to waste!! So, it has now become the smallest of quilts that I have hanging on my stairway wall. Please notice the angle matches the angle of my railing. Also, note that the hangers are the "Rod Hangers" that we sell in our store. This project was completed in 2007 and is 16 1/2" x 22" (longest side).

Mr Snowman - This one is another creation to fit the angle of my stairway on my quilt wall. I just chose some applique designs that I thought would make a nice winter addition for my quilt wall. I used a fuzzy white fabric for the snowman. All the applique was done by machine. This project was completed in 2004 and is 12 1/2" x 37" (at the longest point).

The July version of the small wallhanging. I have used a small pieced border in between the outside borders on this one. .The applique on this was all done by hand. I like the handwork, but due to time constraints, most of my applique work is done by machine.

School Time
This is the September block for back to school. I have added apple fabrics between the two sections of the block that was not included in the pattern. There is also a row of apples at the bottom before the outside border. I thought these helped to set if off nicely. This was another in the "Art to Heart" year of small wallhangings that I did.

This was quilted on the Nolting 24 Pro, featuring some computerized work, some ruler work and some free motion.

This quilt started out with a kit for the scarecrow alone. However, wanting it to be a specific size, I did a bit of re-designing and adding items to make it the size I wanted it to be. Now it is the perfect size to fit the largest spot on my stairway wall.
