Custom Queen Size Sheet Quilts
As I mentioned earlier, my mom's friend Tammy asked me to quilt these four quilts for her. They are each made from two queen size (200 thread count) flat sheets. Tammy pressed them all to prepare them, and I trimmed off the side hems. I then quilted, trimmed, and bound each one. This was my first time working with sheets, and I was pleased with how they turned out.
I quilted them on the Bernina Q24 with a large stipple.
It felt so good every time I took one off the frames.
Here they all are.
The colors are more accurate in this close-up.
I think Tammy was intending for these to be picnic blankets, but they do look good on a bed as well.
I have a funny story to share. I always tell my FMQ students to think of whatever a design reminds them of while they are quilting. One day when I was quilting a stipple, Panda came up and asked me why I was quilting fidget spinners. I stepped back and could see what he was saying. Now every time I stipple a quilt I see fidget spinners and think of him.
What do you think of when you stipple or what do you see in the design?
