Some Grandkid Quilts

Grandkid quilts have developed through the years as they’ve grown and I’ve learned new techniques. Each quilt incorporates something personal to each of them in terms of favorite colors, pets, favorite food and sport.   

Wall Hangings

Making wall hangings is another way to play with quilting, combining beautiful fabrics while creating a scene or an image.                                


  The flowers added to this quilt have the names of each of the kids and grandkids in this lady’s family memory quilt.

This colorful quilt combines old and new methods of making quilts with some traditional piecing and rag quilt edges. It’s also a family memory quilt with names throughout.

FMQ Set Up

Part of the preparation for FMQ on a longarm quilting machine is the set up to attach the 3 pieces of the “quilt sandwich” to the frame. This process requires extra fabric all around the quilt, about 4″ on each side to be able to properly attach the backing and piece top with the batting in between.

Take a look at my You Tube videos about setting things up on the longarm quilting frame and then actually doing FMQ on the frame with my APQS Lenni.
