I’ve had the blessed pleasure of getting to spend a bunch of time at my sewing machine lately and this is what I’ve come up with. Just quilt tops but at least I’m MAKING!
I had some long-hoarded ‘Grant Park’ Charm Packs that I needed the right pattern for. So, I decided to do a variation on a simple Four-Patch block with another Four-Patch setting block. After adding the borders, I’m in love with it! Classic beauty.
The Parson Gray Jelly Roll was just screaming to be made into the “Jelly Roll Race II” by Missouri Star Quilt Co. I ended up adding a bit of white on the sides and more 2.5″ strips to the top and bottom to make it larger. This one will be gifted away.
The ‘Acreage’ Charm Pack was supposed to be a show sample but I sold out of the fabric long before I could finish the quilt. C’est la vie, good for me! This quilt will likely go into the “Christmas Giving” pile.
This ‘Hello Love’ Layer Cake quilt will make the rounds at shows until I sell out of the Layer Cakes but once that happens, it’s into the “Christmas Giving” pile as well.
I’ve also whipped up this sweet playmat by designer Susybee (she’s Canadian by the way).
This is a show sample that has make it to a couple of shows already and the reaction is great! People love how the momma and baby penguin pop up (almost 3D) because of the extra layers of batting and the heavy quilting around them. I had so much fun quilting this one. It was the first time I did swirls that close together as a filler.
I think I may have to use that for more quilts!
I don’t usually do that heavy of quilting either but for this project, it was perfect!
I’d love to see what you’re working on!
Till next time…
