Update: I quilted with Urban Elementz Nemesh's Feather Grande design. I sewed the binding on and took to neighbor's house just in time to be loaded on the moving truck. ---- This is the fabric I picked out for my neighbor's son to piece a quilt while he was home from school because of virus (if he wanted to make one). His two sister's pieced their quilts and I quilted them (posted earlier). He didn't piece it. The family is moving away for a couple years for work, at the end of the month. I decided to make him this quilt. I used the charm on point pattern for the middle (8 x 16 squares), I placed the same fabric on the diagonal cut line, so the outer triangles would be the same fabric (same as border fabric). I added LeMoyne Stars (Lemon stars) to the top and bottom to make it a rectangular quilt. I had some charms left from the 4 charm packs that I had of Wilmington Essentials Sapphire Sky (Beautiful fabric), so I made four patches for the sides. 75" x 87"
Another from the Kansas Troubles bin. I swear these fabrics are reproducing faster than I can figure out what to do with them. This quilt was for my Father-In-Law. He is 95 and needed to move from a small apartment to assisted living. Because of the massive decrease in space he went from a queen bed to a twin. I promised him a new quilt. It is again from a block I saw; really no idea at this point. The quilting is a simple stitch in the ditch to make the stars jump out. He since has had to move into a care facility and the quilt is back in my possession.
A few years ago I bought a Fatquater bundle of gorgeous orange and terracotta civil war reproductions. I had a pumpkin theme in mind. But somehow I never got started...until I saw this amazing living room my friends created. On a black tiled floor stood a huge terracotta sofa. All of a sudden I had this vision of orange charms and dark framing. To add a bit of sparkle some yellow and cream toned charms were introduced. The quilt finally got rather big and the quilting was quite a job.

I am super excited to introduce Picket Fence to you! She is the second in my budding line of quilt patterns! Picket Fence is a versatile pattern that looks great in many fabric collections! Sweet pastels or bold, masculine prints are perfect for Picket Fence. The cover quilt is lap size in PB&J by Basic Grey. The pink, yellow and green version is the original Picket Fence in Spring quilt from 2012, making it up as I sewed. This quilt is the reason I named the pattern Picket Fence; it reminded me of a white picket fence on a lovely spring day, thus the name, Picket Fence in Spring. Recently I was asked about the pattern through my Etsy shop, and I decided it was time to write it! This pattern is layer cake friendly and comes with instructions for six sizes from wall hanging to king! The pattern includes fabric requirements for using layer cake squares or yardage.

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!
