Memorial Shirt Quilt to Remember a Special Father

Here are some photo’s of Mary Jo’s Memorial Quilt made out of her dad’s shirts. The quilt is going to be a special Christmas gift for her mom! Take a look at the cornerstone in the outer border.  It is made out of Mary Jo’s father’s hat.  It was a little blue cotton hat with […]

Five Little Monkeys Baby Quilt.

I swear, Sandy’s monkeys quilt is one of the top ten best quilts I’ve ever had cross my path. I wonder if she’d notice if I applied for adoption so I could get a quilt like this from her? 🙂 I used Hobbs 100% cotton for the batting and outlined all of those fabulous embroideries […]

Stripey Dotted Roses & Another Peep At Sandy’s Monkeys!

You’ve heard of a progressive dinner, right? Well, this next beauty is a bit like a progressive quilting project. Jen made this from a quilt kit she bought in Paducah and really loved the irregular border.  It is another good example showing how to mix stripes and dots, isn’t it? I did an all over […]

Margarita Sunrise Jelly Roll Quilt & A Peek At Some Monkeys

I promised you a glimpse of Sandy’s over-the-top kiddo quilt but first, I want to show you her dots and stripes quilt. I really admire her ability to pick colors and fabric.  I always look at those stripe fabrics and think how cute they are; however, when I go to use them I can’t always […]

Rebecca’s Coneflower Batik quilt

Rebecca’s Quilt is a one of those quilts that just makes me happy. I think it is the hot pink batik in it. Can you see the flange just before the outside border? It really adds a nice dimension to the overall design. Of course, I stayed off the flange so it could be all […]

Jelly Roll Strip Quilt & Coneflower Four Patch

Suzanna adorned her neutral quilt top in such soothing colors.  I love the color combination she chose with her fabrics.  It is a quilt that just speaks gently.  I’ve been calling it the “Rectangle Road” quilt, but I’m sure she has a better title.  This is a great strip quilt pattern that could make good use of […]

Bow Tie Memorial Quilt and Stack & Whack Table Runner

It’s done and it is beautiful!  This quilt is made of Beth’s father’s Bow Ties and the fabulous silk fabrics look wonderful all lined up. I used a classic Chinese Coin pattern and stablized each tie with interfacing after taking them apart.  The whole process is can be found here. Then I did some stitch […]

Linda’s Hankie Quilt: Done!

Here are the final shots of Linda’s Handkerchief quilt. I just love all that space that she gave me to play!         I did curved cross hatching behind the hankies.  The setting triangles received feathers.  The center hankie got a folded ribbon frame undulating around it.  The crochet border on that center […]

Meandering T-Shirt Quilting & A Log Cabin Variation

Here’s Kris’ T-shirt quilt: bound and ready to be delivered to her tomorrow!     I did an overall meander that added some great texture to her t-shirt quilt.  This type of quilting would be easy to do on your domestic sewing machine as well.  Just think of it as puzzles pieces or a wandering path […]

Judy’s Rail Fence & A Precious Baby Quilt

I just love it when I get to quilt someone’s very first quilt.  They have such a great sense of accomplishment!  I know I was so proud of my first wall hanging. In fact, it still hangs on my wall to this day.  Wavy, pouchy, bumpy goodness and all. This is Judy’s first quilt.  Let […]

Baby Quilt from Friends & Family: A New Spin on Signature Quilts

Here are more of the original blocks made for Phyllis’s granddaughter’s quilt.   I’m so impressed by the love and care put in each of these blocks. It is obvious how much love surrounds this little baby.  I’ve seen many signature quilts made at baby showers or bridal showers but I’ve never seen one this original. […]

Friends & Family Baby Quilt

Friends & Family Baby Quilt, quilted by Angela Huffman

These are just a few of the special block’s in Phyllis’ baby quilt.  Each block was designed by friends and family of the lucky baby girl who will get to enjoy this quilt. I custom designed the quilting for each of the blocks to bring out the original design and expression each person brought to […]

Purses Quilt & Non-Traditional Baby Quilt

Sarah's Purses Quilt, quilted by Angela Huffman

Sarah’s purses quilt is finished!  Yeah! I tried to take photos of the purses but the background filler on the white fabric is freaking my camera out and the stitches aren’t showing.  You can, however, see the daisy chain in the inner pink border. This quilt was so much fun to work on and I […]

Sarah’s Purple Pinwheels

Sarah's Purple Pinwheels, quilted by Angela Huffman

Sarah is a rather prolific new quilter.  She told me that when she first moved to town, she was holed up in a hotel room for quite some time because they didn’t have a house just yet.  She decided to start taking quilting classes to learn something new. She had some sewing experience but the […]

Sarah’s Irish Chain

Sarah's Irish Chain, quilted by Angela Huffman

This is my second Irish Chain in as many weeks! I just love how quiltmakers express themselves so uniquely through the fabric choices they make.  This is Sarah’s Irish Chain and it is beautiful. I used a new edge to edge design on this quilt.  It is called Cascade. I had picked it up at […]

Lisa’s T-Shirt Quilt

Lisa's T-Shirt Quilt, quilted by Angela Huffman

Lisa’s t-shirt quilt is done! This quilt is made up of her son’s many sports shirts.  The focus block, however, is a special kiddo shirt that must have made Lisa’s heart sing every time she saw him in it. As I finished this quilt I started thinking about how nice it would be to have […]

Irish Chain Red Hot!

Jennie Beth's finished Irish Chain quilt, custom quilting by Angela Huffman

It is done! I pulled Jennie Beth’s Irish Chain off the frame today. It took me MUCH longer than I anticipated but I know she’ll be pleased.  Here’s some final photos and a close up of the back of the border. Quilted Joy Blog Stop by for design inspiration, quilting options and pricing on […]

Linda’s T-Shirt Quilt

Linda asked me to quilt this super cute and very unique T-shirt quilt! She actually appliqued each shirt onto the background!

I find it funny that the past three quilts I’ve done are all for different Lindas! This one is Linda S’s t-shirt quilt. I’ve never seen a t-shirt quilt like this before- it is so original. She put the background fabric together then appliquéd the t-shirt panels on the top. The edges are trimmed out […]

Split Nine Patch Quilt

Linda brought me this fun and funky quilt that I think is a Split Nine Patch. The best quilting for a busy quilt is usually an edge to edge design. I looked for a pattern that would be whimsical and funky just like this quilt!

Isn’t this quilt fun and funky? I think it is called a split nine patch. This is Linda’s quilt and I love how whimsical it looks.  It was fun to check out all the different fabrics she used, many of which are in my own stash! This quilt is a smallish twin and uses one of […]

Linda’s Pinwheel Quilt

Pinwheel Quilt

Linda’s Pinwheel quilt is one of those quilts that takes on a whole new look as you step back from it.  I love the look all of those pinwheel blocks have together.  The movement they give each other and the overall strength of the high contrast really works in quilts like this. One of the […]

Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt

  I’m back!  The past week was interesting here in Kentucky.  Hurricane Ike sent us a massive wind storm and 60% of the region lost power. School was cancelled for the entire week, so I got almost nothing done.  Yesterday I started to get caught up. This is Wendy’s Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.  She found […]

Ann’s Rail Fence Quilt

Rail Fence Quilt

I just love it when the quilting bug bites. This is Ann’s Rail Fence quilt she made in a beginner class. She should be so proud of her efforts and for good reason. She made a really great quilt! There is a lady online whose signature states that she is a contagious quilting addict. I […]

Friendship Garden Quilt

Friendship Garden Quilt

Debbie’s Friendship Garden quilt is finished.  This quilt had lots of open space (which I just love, since it gives me a place to play!). I did a feathered motif in each of the plain blocks, and a delicate petal star in the alternate blocks. Then I added hearts to the corners of the plain blocks.  […]
