my creative pursuits with quilts and knits

TBT – First Quilt

imageDid you jump on the Stack-n-Whack train when it was the coolest thing in quilting?  I love the kaleidoscope effect from cutting specific shapes from multiple layers of fabric. This pattern is called “Treasure Boxes.”  This was my first effort at longarm quilting when I bought my Gammill in 2006.

imageI used the Gammill workstation to make the “wreaths”. It was kind of like a Spirograph toy – there is a base plate that you follow with a stylus.  Then I free-hand quilted some petals.

One thing I forgot…stitching in the ditch!
