Sewn by Tamantha Flores
Quilted on an APQS with Side Saddle.

"Quilted from My Heart"
Her Dear Husband, Jerry found the main fabric in Portland and Fabric Depot and showed it to her.
They were there for a consultation before her heart procedure.


Lynn had a lot of Friends help to make this Quilt.
It is the FASTEST quilt made this year.
Two weeks from Fabric Purchase to finished quilt.

Mary Ellen Carter and Lynn designed and made this quilt, 
Tammi quilted it on the APQS and Mary C got to bind it.

Thanks for stopping by to see Lynn's Comfort Quilt. Lynn is healing still.
This her Favorite to take a nap with in her recliner.

DESIGN Wall Monday- January 6, 2014

It's been a while since there has been anything new on the WALLS at Thread & Bolts.
Lynn's Daughter has been good to send pictures with her phone this past week.
So Mary could post them here and link-up to the Design Wall Monday.
 Lynn started these BATIK blocks for another Bouquet of Friendship.
She is trying to get some of her started projects off the UFO list.
Here they are on the WALL to arrange the 25 in the center. She left them up there to look at while she and Tammy finished June's Fairy quilt in the Longarm. Tammy is learnign how to use the Longarm since her mother has been trying to figure out why she is so weak and can't do everything she was doing.

Tammy is making this cute baby Minnie and Mickey quilt for a friend.
The hearts really add a lot to the yellow corners.
The center panel is a Neckerchief. 
  
But first this OWL baby quilt has to be quilted...

Lynn and Tammy were racing to see how fast they could sew up these cute
Owl baby quilts way back HERE.

Design Wall Monday- September 23, 2013

 Tammy  and I decided to make two baby quilts, with similar fabrics and race, LOL
Tammy's will have a different Kicker border and more PINK.
Guess who WON??
This is the Quilts for Kids design.  
Easy with a 4-Patch and a Focus Square. 
The fabric has Owls and Butterflies on it--you have to look close.


Quilts have flown out the door before Mary C could get pictures.  
Thankfully Tammy took a few pictures that now can be BLOGGED.
 Julie H from Mesa picked up a few quilts last week.
Before Quilting
 
After Quilting and Close up quilting
The quilting brings the Quilt to LIFE!
This is one Mesa Julie calls her $20 Walmart Quilt.
And this Scrappy Blue Quilt used a bunch of her Blue stash of fabrics.
 The go to Quilt Pattern is the Feather Ramble.

 While she was here, she gave me a Cherished Teddies frame.
I got a little emotional.  Love those Teddy Bears!

Design Wall Monday- September 16, 2013

It's been a while since Thread and Bolts Design Wall has changed.  
The Farmer's Wife has come down it's together as much as possible until the extra blocks get sewn. 
The Bear Need Homes too blocks are coming together so they can go on the BIG Wall Soon.  
(You may have seen a sneak peek of them on The Happy Birthday post HERE)
 This is a version of THIS QUILT made with a multi-BLUE scrap basket. 
Pattern thanks to Evelyn Sloppy's Log Cabin Fever Book.
And on the other WALL is a fun Buggy Barn Hearts Quilt.
Don't you just love the mix of these 27 Fat Quarters in Red, Gold and Black? 
Thinking of a Piano Key Border to finish the borders.
