I am going back in the archives and pulling all of the quilts I made in 2014. I’m making a big of a parade with them. Sit back and enjoy the parade of the quilts of 2014.
I hadn’t put these all together on one page until 2021. I have other years to catch up on too but thought, I’ll do 2014. We were remodeling the house. That will be an easy year. WRONG. That was likely one of the most prolific years ever.
Grab some coffee…this is a long one.
The first quilt for the year was Odds and Ends.
Kelli started me on making this when a quilt magazine came out, she said-let’s both make one, and me wanting to encourage her to sew, said sure. (at this point Kelli was sewing some but not a lot) That was back in June of 2010 as the pattern was in American Patchwork and Quilting’s June 2010 issue. 3 1/2 years later…Kelli finished hers!! (here’s a picture of hers) me…I didn’t finish mine until 2014.
This quilt is in the rotation of quilts that I keep for my own bed. I love it!
You can read more about the quilt HERE.
We had a quilt in a magazine. It was in this magazine.
We called it Stars in Formation.
I’m sorry I don’t which issue it was.
You can read more about it HERE.
This quilt was actually Kayla’s finish…She made the quilt and I quilted it.
It’s off-center…wonky and random-a total modern look! Can you believe she sewed it on her treadle??
At first, I didn’t know how to tackle the quilting and then I thought…Just go…and I did. I was worried about those big borders along two of the sides but it was actually really fun!
I got lots of practice holding the ruler and moving the machine with one hand.
I looked back and saw this quilt and am shocked I was so brave with my quilting!!
The back…well it almost has a modern whole cloth quilt look to it. FUN!!
You can read that post HERE.
I took an old orphan block and make it into a pincushion.
In fact, the orphan block was in a bag of scrap fabric I bought at Goodwill some time back. I ended up giving this to Kelli.
I made the Candy Wishes quilt. This was a Moda Bake Shop project.
I made it after the powers that be at Moda Bake Shop challenged us, designers, to make projects from the small Candy packs. The packs that have 2 1/2″ squares. Well, I was the only person that designed a quilt from one candy pack! You can get the free pattern HERE.
It is a SUPER fast quilt to make. You can read the whole post about it HERE.
This is Miss Rosie Schnibbles pattern. Kelli did the top and and I finished it.
This is our Pin Up Star Table Runner. Read about it and find the free pattern HERE.
The table runner is pretty big. It ends up being 17″ x 53″.
To make the table runner you need the printable directions to make the block which you can find HERE. To get the expanded directions to make the table runner, click on this link, Pinup Star Table Runner, for the free printable pattern. You can always find the pattern on right side bar of the blog. Look for it under the name Pin Up Star Table Runner.
This is our Square Dance quilt.
It was featured in Quiltmaker magazine. Sadly I can’t tell you which issue. I only know that it was likely an early 2014 issue.
Kelli and I both shed MANY tears over this quilt. You’ll have to go and read the whole story about the quilt HERE.
In the end we loved the quilt but to get to the point of loving it, took some time. This is a quilt I will never give away. Too many memories are attached to it!
2014 was the year Kelli and I were busy sewing behind the scenes. Kelli was laid of from work. I wasn’t doing childcare. We were sewing like mad women. Here is a stack of the quilts we made for the book. You can read more about it HERE. 11 of these went into the book. The remaining quilts went on to be featured in magazines.
We had a quilt block featured in Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks.
We made more of our block and made this quilt. No pattern has been released for this so far.
This is a pattern from Nine-Patch Gatherings by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. This was Kelli’s quilt. I did the machine quilting and binding.
It is really more of a table topper.
Sneaker Treads was a quilt we had featured in Quilty Magazine. This was in the March/April 2014 issue.
We later went on and used the scraps to make this quilt…Read More »Quilts of 2014
