This morning while I began updating my website and seeing all my color wash patterns displayed, it finally came to me why Light Upon the Earth quilt was never as popular online as my other color wash patterns, yet in person, I always received many compliments about it.
Remember last week I mentioned a new pattern? Well, it is here now! Freshly released and a fun make with modern cutting techniques (or traditional if you prefer). My new quilt is called "Woodland Foxes" and is ideal for baby or toodler as you can make it in any size you require with ease - crib, cot, single or lap quilt.
It suddenly occured to me that my applique flowers can be made in a number of other ways, not just applique so today I wanted to show you how I created a new block from one of my existing flower blocks - actually, I chose my very first flower block in my BOW series, the pansy.
Over the last week, I have been finishing off my "Flower Garden" quilt pattern. Coordinating the fabrics was the most fun and wording it in the pattern rather than referring to color makes it easy for you to pick your own set of fabric colors. Note: To learn more about color choices, I can highly recommend Elizabeth Barton's Color Course - it has a wealth of information and exercises to try.
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.
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.
Every quilt has a story attached to it, whether it be short or long, it is always personal to the maker and the receiver which makes every quilt special. Today I want to share my story of a quilt I made this week.
I am so excited to be able to present another quilt in Hoffman Fabrics booth at International Market in Houston this Fall. I used my newest pattern "Reflections" which is a bargello design and used Hoffman's newest batik fabrics. The Hoffman Fabrics were perfect.
If you need a new way to use those 2 1/2" strips you have been collecting, you want to give this pattern a try "Flower Boxes". There are multiple layout and border options to make any size quilt you need and this technique is definitely a new one. Include the flowers or not, the inspiration can lead you into a new world of creativity.
