I designed this quilt for my guild as our raffle quilt. everyone helped paper piece the blocks and one of the members volunteered to custom quilt it and she did an amazing job! It was a true group effort and it's so exciting to finally be able to share it and sell tickets! Bananas for Ananas 78" x 90" www.quiltachusetts.com www.inmodquiltguild.blogspot.com
I cut a pumpkin out of newprint paper...then cut others by that pattern. I cut strips 2-2 1/2 inches wide and used newsprint pumkin it as a foundation to sew my strips to. Then cut to the pumpkin shape when done. I used a batting and backing to finish. Then quilted each one.
I was looking for a pattern to use to make a youth-sized quilt for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's fundraiser, to be held in just two weeks. With only one week to make and finish the quilt, I needed something either repetitive or pretty straightforward. When I saw this pattern, I knew it was what I was looking for...Allison of Cluck Cluck sew designed the pattern "Simple Hearts" and I then modified it with colorful borders around each heart, and in the end I placed another border around the outer edge of the quilt, adding applique hearts for interest.
I fell in love with this pattern when I saw it on this site & knew it would be perfect for my mom. I made this for her 81st birthday. It was quilted by MSQC and I made the label on my printer. (note: I used the MSQC tutorial on x's & o's block but at the time didn't know there was a mistake in the measurements stated on the tutorial. If you use this one, be sure to read the correction in the comments below the video. I found out after making about 15 squares & had to start over.)
