Our annual family sewing retreat took place on the Outer Banks of NC.
My first project was to make another small quilt from Father’s Shirts. You can see my first one HERE and HERE.
Mother marked the backside of some of the squares for me to sew diagonally to get 2 half square triangles from 2 squares.
I chain stitched the squares and then Mother snipped the thread between the chain and then cut on the diagonal line making 2 half square triangles.
Inspiration for this quilt came from the book “Mad About Plaid” by Debbie Bacon.
I thought I was finished with this top; but now I want to change those light triangles in the border for a medium value.
Now Coleen is taking the scraps and making herself a “Father’s Shirts” quilt too.
Jolene machine quilted her huge queen size quilt on her domestic Bernina. I think it has been in the making for 10 years.
Four generations of quilters – Great grandmother Margaret, Grandmother June, Mother Jolene, and Daughter Afton.
Mother helped Barbara with a quilt, piecing and ironing.
I loved finding inspiration out by the beach for another piece of fiber art.
