Baby Layer Cake
Also in the quilt world, a stack of 10 inch blocks is called a “Layer Cake” and this is how this quilt got it’s name. These blocks were sewn on point and then a border was added. Even the set in triangles were from the Layer Cake, as they were just cut diagonally. Cute and simple pattern and a great way to use a Layer Cake that is in your stash.
Small Pink Charm Quilt
In the quilting world, a stack of 5 inch blocks is referred to as a “Charm Pack” This quilt top minus the borders was made from a charm pack where some blocks were left whole and some were subcut and pieced back together. Charming little quilt, if I do say so myself.
Bright floral Kaffe fabrics in columns of diamonds. The colors are so vibrant that you almost can’t see the quilting but it is there. Maybe the variegated thread matched a little too closely to the colors in the quilt!

Beautiful Frozen panel quilted with snow crystals. It’s hard to see but I used a blue tinged pearlescent threat that shimmers in the light. The backing is minky; so soft and cuddly. I know the little girls that receives this quilt is going to love it.

This quilt has some amazing details. I hope you can see them in the close up shots. Things such as the variegated thread to quilt stained glass windows for the church, or the wood grain on the picket fence, or the pine boughs on the trees, or the difference in the water from the pond to the sea, or the line work in the houses. The list goes on. The quilting is amazing and I am so glad I convinced her to go with custom rather than an all over pattern.
Turquoise Gardens (back)
First quilt for this piecer. The pattern of delicate flowers, leaves and curls added the perfect touch. I love how the quilting shows on the back. Its like getting a reversible quilt.

At this point I have quilted four Mr Chillingsworth quilts but this is the first Mrs Chillingsworth. I found this pattern that is similar to the Mr pattern so that our group could use our leftovers plus some chilling Halloween additional fabric to make coordinating quilts. I can’t wait to quilt the rest!
