The Show and Tell for Quilters
Come tell the story of your quilt
I was inspired by Jenny Doan to use up some of my scraps to make a quilt with a lot of little houses. I watched her tutorial and seemed very easy and it was. I thought I would make a couple of houses a week, but it became so much fun matching up scraps that it was finished much sooner than I thought. My original plan was to donate it, but I love it so much, it's now mine!
Nordic Winterland No. 1
I decided this year I wanted a “Nordic” Winter Theme since a week ago we already had our 1st (and probably only) snowfall of the year! (I live in Kansas and it hardly ever snows here, just cold and ice). This mini Art Quilt is the first and beginning of my adventures into my “Nordic Winterland”!
Easy Carpenter's Star Kaffe Fassett
I could not wait to show you this "Easy Carpenter's Star" in Kaffe Fasset Spring 2019 Collective. It's so pretty, I plan to put a 2" white border and a 6" colored border. Will add another pic when it's done. I think any Kaffe Fassett Collective would work with this pattern. thanks Jenny. What do you all think?
Ice Crystal Table Runner
Found this pattern on Annie's Catalog and just had to make it for the winter season. I added a small outside border as I loved the batik medium fabric I chose. Love the background fabric as it had silver sparkle swirls - although hard to see from the photo. Easy and fun to do. Pattern uses fat quarters but I just used yardage.
Darling Daughter needed a new quilt. But she couldn’t decide on the size; king or queen. So this quilt sat for a year waiting (without its borders) not only for her to decide what size but also because I really thought it turned out not beautiful. After quilting my Mom’s Pink and Blue quilt I realized this quilt to was going to be about the quilting. So I girded my loins and got to work. Oh, we did decide to push it to as big as the backing would allow. It will be 110 by 110. I watched some videos and looked through designs. Will edit this as I complete it; not sure I actually have a pattern name, it might just be a picture of a block.
Quite awhile back I purchased an assortment of RK Winter’s Grandeur from MSQC, including a layer cake. It was a perfect fit with my favourite winter colours, red and white, with gray accents and heavy silver embossing. My daughter added more cuts, including the tree panel; the panel with the 10” blocks I found in a little shop in Nova Scotia. This winter I found the perfect quilt projects. The quilt is my version of Celebration, from ladeebugdesign.com. The tree skirt is a tutorial by Jordan Fabrics. Thanks, Jenny, for featuring this fabric.
