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)!
This is the first quilt I’ve seen done by one of my customers with my Tranquil Forest pattern! Lorraine B. from San Diego did a super job on it and it was her very first quilt! It is so exciting to see my pattern turned into an actual, real, honest-to-goodness, living, breathing quilt! I hope I get to see many more over the coming years. Yep, that’s definitely an unveiled hint quilters! Here’s your mantra for today: “Buy the pattern, make the quilt…..buy the pattern, make the quilt”….
This is a great pattern to make if you are a beginner, but it’s also a good one for experienced sewists to whip out for that quick baby quilt. It can be done scrappy, or planned; either way it is fast and fun. The main thing is to prepare yourself a coffee (or tea or wine!) and just do it. Dive into that stash. Or go shopping. What are you waiting for?
