㆕ Four Charity Quilts 🎁

During this time of global pandemic,  Minnesota Quilters  is not able to meet in person, but there is still a need for charity quilts. MQ has made it easy to help by having curbside Quilting For Others pick-up and drop-off every Wednesday, from 11 to 1 PM. They have quilts in all stages to choose from--blocks to be made, squares to be sewn together into tops, and quilts to be quilted. As a longarm quilter with a newly added computer to practice with, I took home 4 quilt tops to quilt, with backs and battings.

How To 🔥Match🔥 a Pieced Quilt Back


My friend, Missy, makes the most perfectly matched pieced quilt backs! I recently asked her how she does it. This is a tutorial on how to sew matched pieced quilt backs.

First, here are a few samples from the backs of quilts I've quilted for Missy. Can you find the seams? They're practically invisible! ⬇️

🌾Meadowland 🌾Number 4--The Challenge!

As a Minnesota Quilter, we have a fabric challenge category in our annual quilt show. This year there are "Warm" and "Cool" fabric packet options. Can you tell which one I chose:

The "Warm" challenge packet comes with 4 fat quarters: the floral below right, plus the lower 3 fabrics. We can add 3 other fabrics, for me, the upper three FQs below, plus a background fabric which I didn't add since I treated my floral print as the background:

My co-worker saw my "Little Christmas" quilt at show and tell, bought the same panel, the same Glitter Sherpa backing, and then she asked me to quilt it for her, just like mine! Here's mine, back in July, 2019.
