Clever! This was three smaller design walls from previous classes. They were sewn together matching up the grid and then sandwiched like a traditional quilt. I did a large meander and with the addition of a sleeve this is an incredible design wall to leave on a wall. Now to figure out how to make one for myself!
This cheerful quilt features pieced butterflies and an allover pattern with flowers, curls and more butterflies. I used a pink and orange variegated thread with looks fabulous on front and back. This was a gift for a dear friend going through cancer treatment. As I write this blog post, the piecer just shared with me that this quilt went on the last treatment appointment. I love being part of the healing process.
When you buy a collection of fabrics that are already pre cut into 10 inch squares, it is called a layer cake. This pattern features the 10 inch block with out having to sub cut the squares with a bold black diagonal sashing. All the fabrics have printed stars and it inspired me to quilt this with a star and swirl pattern which keep your eyes moving across the quilt from block to block. Incredible!
What a fantastic quilt for a favorite little boy! The fabrics are novelty and perfect for “I Spy”. The pattern is a Nuts and Bolts edge to edge, great for masculine quilts and echoes the lines and angles of the piecing. The backing is a minky fabric and shows off the quilting design! You can bet this quilt goes everywhere with him!
