I love to do novelty quilts. I like the bright colors. I made 3 little boy quilts and 1 little girl quilt this spring. I haven't posted pictures of all of them yet. Must get around to that. I am…Continue
Love the ideas and discussions here. I like to make calendar quilts. I purchase seasonal- or holiday-themes fabrics when they're steeply discounted after the holiday (St. Patrick's, Valentine's, etc.). Most months are easy, but some are less so. January can be snowfall, August garden harvest veggies, April showers, May flowers -- but June is a pain. Have never found fabric with brides/grooms or graduates, so have had to use stereotyped male hobbies (hunt, fish, tools) to represent Father's Day. Made into 12-inch squares with sashing, these quilts are twin-bed size or suitable for tossing into a car or camper.
I've made many I Spy quilts. Usually as big brother/big sister gifts when I give a baby quilt. My son loves his! I made it for him just before his sister was born. I used things he liked then, Elmo, Thomas, etc and things I thought he'd like as he gets older, super heros and Diego. He still loves it alost two years later. I hope he will for years to come yet.
Currently I am waiting (impatiently) for my blocks to arrive for an alphabet swap that I participated in. We all signed up for what letter of the alphabet we thought we could scavenge from our stash...you know, p for pencils, r for rockets, etc.
I'll post pictures when the blocks come, and when I get them sewn up! I think it would be fun if we get enough people here to do an I Spy or an Alphabet swap!
I like to make up my own patterns, if you would call that novelty, not sure, and I use some of the designs, but then sort of "do my own thing"...it usually turns out fine. I think everyone should use there own imagination while quilting. It is more fun that way. I have some of my projects on my page, but others are loaded on my old computer, and I need to put them on my new computer so I can use them online. Most are gifts for family, and so I don't have them here at home.
