Oooo! Pretty stars on a white background. Lora S. did a fabulous job choosing the fabrics for this happy and fresh quilt. To quilt it, I chose swirls of different sizes using white thread to match the background. This particular quilting pattern was inspired by a design from Sheila Sinclair Snyder’s latest book, “Addicted to Free Motion Quilting” (which I am!). If you want to try some of your own quilting, this is a great book to add to your bookshelf.
Joyce W. created this very fun New York Minute quilt. She modified it a bit to make it wider and it looks great. Using Taffeta and Berry Wine threads, I stitched all sorts of fun patterns in various areas.

I quilted this quilt for Piece by Piece Fabrics in Eugene, Oregon as a shop sample. I went to Jaybird Quilts and looked at her very beautiful quilting to see what she did. Then of course I had to “mold” it to fit my customer’s budget and still come out with what I thought would look good on the quilt. It turned out quite fun!
Jaybird Quilts has some fresh and modern designs, so check them out if you haven’t heard of them. You can find Julie’s blog talking about her fun quilts or purchase her new book (see link below) or call Piece by Piece and see which patterns they are carrying in the shop locally.
