My customer, Wanda N. created this quilt and it is just so cute and colorful. The large-scale prints really stand out in her blocks, and she put a lot of solids in it which are an opportunity-waiting-to-happen as far as I’m concerned! So we decided it had spaces for some really fun quilting patterns and so that’s what I did. Wanda really thinks outside of the box and so it’s always fun to see what she has come up with.
So……the lesson here? Solids are in and fashionable again, so use ‘em ladies! They are really neat spaces that let your quilting shine!
Another great-grandbaby and Shirley D makes another quilt! Her family is so lucky! She is an amazing quilter…such detailed work on the applique with ribbon and lace and such.
Happy quilting! And get out and enjoy the sunshine (if you have some in your area)!
With the encouragement of my quilt group, The Pine Needlers, and my mentor Sheila Sinclair Synder, I’ve finally produced my first quilt pattern! I love making new quilts and coming up with new designs. Sometimes simple is best, and this quilt is a good one for the first time quilter, or for a quick baby quilt. The crib-sized quilt top can be cut and pieced together in a weekend. Then depending on how crazy you want to quilt it, that will take a bit longer!! (And yes, I quilted it “CRAZY!”)
I did a crib-sized quilt using some colorful prints out of my stash. And speaking of that, this is a good one to use up some of your stash on because it looks great scrappy.
My quilt group used this as the pattern for their 2012 raffle quilt. They used a more sophisticated color palette and limited the number of fabrics used to achieve a more subdued look. It turned out wonderfuly….and I hope you are enjoying it Virginia! (The winner of this year’s quilt!)
Hop on over to my Shop page and you’ll find the pattern for sale! It’s only $8.00 and that includes the shipping! So get one for yourself, and a gift for a friend. Enjoy! And happy quilting!
