Quilt Round Up! Loads of Pics

by Julie Hirt

Recently I realized there are quite a few quilts I’ve never blogged about. I wanted to get them on here, mainly because it’s nice to look back and see all my finished quilts.

Going to post a lot of pics and not a lot of descriptions, but feel free to ask questions!

Are you ready? Here we go…

Fireman Themed – Custom Baby Quilt

Fireman Themed Maltese Cross (3)

Custom quilt request included dalmations, calico, gingham, firetruck quilting in a girly fireman theme. Drew up a simple maltese cross block – I think it turned out pretty cute!

Vintage Feedsack Quilt

I scored this top a few years back for $20 at an antique store. We’ve dated it to the 30’s due to the lack of oranges and peaches in the fabrics. I quilted in a baptist fan pattern with wool batting.

My guess it’s an orphan top quilt because it’s all hodge podged together. I had to add the strip of white at the bottom to complete it.

King Size Bow Tie Quilt

I didn’t have anyone to help take pics before it was delivered to it’s home, so I couldn’t fit it all into one shot. This one is a biggie.  I used Chestnut Street fabrics for the bowties and an Andover print for the background.

Cotton + Steel Scrap Buster

This is my favorite, favorite quilt and I use it daily. I think it’s because there’s not much white in it so I’m not afraid to use it. It’s my go to! I also like the large size of it, 80 x 92, as well as the dense quilting.

Unfinished Quilt Tops:

Orphan Block Paper Piecing

Orphan blocks – most are paper pieced from my Block Rockn series.  Actually sold this top so someone can quilt and enjoy it!

Plus Quilt

These blocks are from a swap. Sold this top as well so someone can quilt and enjoy it. My goal next year is to be realistic with my WIPs.

This was fun going through and seeing all the quilts!
