Pretty Stars

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.

Happy quilting!

Slice ‘n Dice Quilt

This beautiful batik quilt by Marilyn G is a stunner! She used the pattern called “Slice ‘n Dice” by Busy Bee Quilt Designs (hey…that should have been my company name!) Lots of color and warmth is created by using the batik fabrics. To bring out the quilting I used a Jade colored thread and did a swirly curly design in an overall pattern. Fun! Wants to make you get out your batiks, doesn’t it?

This year one of my goals is to bring you the names of the patterns my customers use when making their quilts, so that way if you see something you like, you can make it too! I call it spreading the love in the quilting world!

Happy quilting!
