I've made literally hundreds of quilts and every quilt has its own story. Hibiscus Sunset is one of my newest patterns, its story, however, spans for quite some time.
It was a wonderful refreshing sight when I saw this beautiful quilt arrive in my inbox. Joanne from Armstrong, BC, Canada had recently purchased my pattern "Color Connections" and wanted to share a photo of her finished quilt.
So here is a preview of the quilt I've been working over the weekend. It is almost complete with only some quilting to finish off and if it had not been for the interruption, I would have finished it! It has taken me just 2.5 days to complete so a perfect weekend project.
What's under the needle this week? I've been playing with a new art quilt and having lots of fun. Check out the following photos...
The “Night Owl” is the second in a series of bird wall hangings by Anita Eaton.
Do you know of a different flower I haven't made? Click through to my 2nd Flower block Competition and let me know a flower you cannot find on our BOW pages and if I decide to add it to my collection, you'll receive a FREE copy of the pattern.
This year my goal is to do more quilting... a lot more quilting. As always, I have lots of quilt ideas floating around in my head, most of them involve applique... and I know I need to get them out. I've already made a start by creating my new Morning Glory block. Originally designed for my BOM Spring Life program, I rearranged it to create a whole new design and of course, I now have this available on my website: Morning Glory design.
Quick easy quilts make beautiful gifts. I revamped this quilt pattern after Sue sent me a photo of her newly quilted Stepping Stones quilt. This one she calls "Kitty Love".
I am so excited to be able to publish my Block of the Month program and it is perfect for Spring! If you love butterflies, then you'll love this quilt too. I made this quilt for my granddaughter Amy as she just loves butterflies which is the theme for her bedroom.
It's taken me a little time to write this blog post because I am still in shock-horror of what has happened to me. The purpose of this post is to make my fellow quilters, teachers, and colleagues aware of what is going on. When nothing is said, nothing changes so my hope is that you will spread the word so this sort of behavior doesn't continue.
