This is a special gallery of beginner quilters. These wonderful people used One Block Only patterns for their quilts.
I am happy to start this gallery with my favorite beginner quilter's photos.
As I get photos of completed quilts, I'll be adding them to this quilters gallery. Along with comments from the quilters.
Dory's Dove at the Windows
This is my friend, Dory.
This is her first "real" quilt,
made as a "class project" for
her niece in Ireland.
We did this as a private class.
I took her through step-by-step
from cutting out the fabric through binding. She did all the work, including the machine quilting of the "little hands" pattern. That was probably the scariest part for her.
But she did quite well on the Handi-Quilter!
The dog on the left is Moose, a Black and Tan Coon Hound (although there's not many coons on the Grand Mesa). The "pup" on the right is Hobo. They just had to help—but I don't see them as quilting dogs!
I think they would have liked it for their beds!
This is a complete view of the all flannel quilt.
The "doves" were done in light pink
(which decided to be
shy in this photo) and
a pretty dark pink print, also used for the binding.
A dark pink print of "doggies as clouds" was used as the center block with cream as the background.
The backing has cute little Teddy Bears in diapers.
This is a detail of the quilting. We used a pantograph from Linda's ElectricQuilters called "Little Hands", which I love to use on baby quilts.
Dory called this experience
"full contact quilting"
No doubt because she felt it
was like playing football!
Way to go!
