Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Red, White, and Blue Quilts

It’s the 4th of July 2023, so I have gathered all of my red, white, and blue quilts in one place.  I was surprised by the number that I’ve made over the years. First up is the first one I started.  This one was started in 1995. I did not finish it until 2009.  It folds up into a quillow and is quite hot as it had polyester batting.

This is another quillow and my first attempt at longarm quilting. This was also finished in 2009.

These next 2 quilts are the result of a mystery quilt. I didn’t like the final quilt, so I made a couple of baby quilts.  The one on the left was finished in 2009 given to my team lead at work. The one on the right was finished in 2011. I don’t remember what child got this quilt.

Chain of Stars was the first retreat mystery quilt I wrote.  I finished this quilt in 2010 and it was sold in a silent auction for a friend’s nephew’s medical care.

Playing with Jacks is another Quiltville free pattern.  I finished this quilt in 2012 and was sent to fire victims.

This table runner is another of my retreat mystery patterns. I finished this one in 2012.

This 4-Patch Stacked Posies in Kansas Troubled Fabric was given to Lynne Hagmeier in 2013.

I also finished Ladder to the Stars in 2013. This was my first published quilt pattern.

This is another one of my patterns. I finished this one in 2014 and gave it to my college roommate’s daughter.

These two tops are made with blocks from Bonnie K. Hunters, free pattern Star Struck.  In 2015 I took my original quilt top and split it into 2 so they met the requirements for Country School Quilters in Virginia.

I also sent them these two sampler tops.

Narragansett Blues, a Bonnie Hunter design was finished in 2020.

2021 I designed Wonky Wishes.

I made this June Tailor Sophie Tote in 2022.

This in May I purchased 14 5/8-yard cuts of red and blue fabric, plus a background, accent and border to make three quilts from Stripology 3 by GE Designs. Tara, Crystal, and Kimberly.  I added a bright white layer cake to the mix and purchased more background fabric for a couple more projects to used up the original 5/8-yard cuts.

I started this post saying I was surprised by the number of red, white and blue quilts I’ve made, but as I was writing the post I found a couple I had forgotten about.
