This is a pattern by Esther Aliu. It is machine appliqued. It was a challenge, but I think it was worth it. I made it in these colors attempting to have it look like an 1800’s quilt. My daughter wants it but she’ll need to wait awhile as I am going to hang it in my house first!
I made this quilt from a pattern by Jackie Frost, Ann Wendinger and Cindy Wendinger which A dear friend who is experiencing great challenges in her life is the recipient of this quilt. I hope the biblical verse gives her inspiration as she copes with those challenges.
I made this quilt with the purpose of learning to make half square triangles.....I mastered them!! Then donated the quilt to Princess Margaret Children's Hospital, Perth WA where donated quilts are given to children who have illness requiring regular hospital stays. These children are then able to take their special quilts with them for every hospital stay.
I fell in Love with the this pattern and loved the earth tones and knew it would be perfect for one of my sons....I also was new at Jelly Rolls/Layer Cake patterns which I love....how they were redesigned from traditional patterns to fit pre cuts......I have attached another picture of a girly Bear Claw for an exchange student we had, this photo shows the color combo..(Not finished of course)
I had finished the blocks for this quilt and began trying to lay them out. I moved and turned them several different ways and just couldn’t get a design that I was looking for. When I moved some blocks around again, the cross just jumped right out at me. I fell in love.
I saw Jenny's Alter Ego Quilt tutorial, and I loved it! I had my first layer cake, which was the Paisley Park collection and I wanted to use it for this pattern. At the time of my purchase, I didn't realize that I would need yardage as well, so I purchased three other fabrics of a similar "feel" and used them for the border and in the patchwork to bring it all together. I love the quilt I made from the pattern, and I wanted to share it with Jenny!
This Pam Buda design and fabric was begun at a class taught by Pam herself! Such fun! The was done and quilted by Stover Quality Quilting and back in time to give to a dear friend, Lori, when she came to help us do a remodel on our church with Builder's for Christ.
