Bright gold thread and an almost tribal quilting pattern are a terrific contrast to the patchwork top and a stunning display on the black backing.  The quilting pattern and fabric prints make a great combination.

Warm gray flannel with a cheery red center are a great combination for this log cabin quilt.  Add a frosty polar bear backing and you have a warm winter quilt.  The swirls are the perfect accent on both front and back!

Country blocks, strip piecing, and a meander make this an incredible quilt for a beloved brother.  What is even more heart warming is that the color palate is the opposite of what this piecer gravitates to and enjoys.   Truly a labor of love.

This little panel is going to be sewn into a pillow cover for a grandchild.   If you will notice, the animals are indigenous to the area on the map where they are printed.   The quilting is a simple wave pattern which compliments the map.   What a fantastic project!

I don’t know who has the most fun with these learning quilts; the piecer, the quilter, or the recipient.   This quilt has geometric shapes in the border, animals quilted across the quilt, science blocks on the back, as well as numbers and an alphabet.  What a great idea!

This is the first of a series of quilt tops from a recent block of the month class.  My goal is to feature them side by side as soon as every one at Ideal Stitches is complete.  I am excited to see the same pattern in a variety of fabric groups and quilting motifs.   This fall country sampler features autumn prints and a leafy quilting design that works well together.
