2017 100 BLK copy 003CORONATION          Block 1469

I am blessed to have my 10th block in the QUILTMAKER 100 BLOCKS series, Volume 15!

I love taking a simple block, like a 9-patch, and making it it’s own party!

This block is a 3-color party, but just imagine the possibilities with more colors.  OH MY!

2017 CORONATION QUILT COPY

 

I think the blocks repeated as is make quite an interesting quilt – LOVE IT!

Look for the  CORONATION quilt in  the 2017 fall issue of QUILTS MADE FROM 100 BLOCKS.

I’m really looking forward to playing with more colors and creating a whole new look!

Will soon be completing a new pattern for these new wall hangings.  Will be for sure ready by local shop in Wichita area, Oct 2-3-4th.

Am reminded of an old hymn I grew up with-helped me name the pattern:

“THE WONDEROUS CROSS”

Praying for peace in remembrance of 9/11.

2015 FRESH FLEURS

QUILTMAKER JULY/AUG 2015

I’m so very blessed to have FRESH FLEURS in the summer issue of Quiltmaker.  This 60×78 quilt is a log cabin block, based on a variation of the KANSAS FORTUNE block published in 100 Blocks Vol 3.

Quiltmaker also presented using this block in four other layouts – so very versatile

2015 FRESH FLEURS BLUE

I’m really in love with the blue and white model (Tonga Snow Angel batiks by Timeless Treasures)   So beautiful!    You need to get your own copy of this issue!!!!

Coming by Oct 2 –   I’m making a model for Picket Fence Quilt Shop and the  Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop – I love this easy pattern!

THERE AND BACK AGAIN 002

 

   “THERE AND BACK AGAIN”

           Welcome to all!  Once again I’m blessed to have a block in a Quiltmaker 100 Blocks issue, Pg 44.  I find this block exciting because it offers so very many different opportunities for different looks with fabric choices.   Wow – the possibilities!

THERE AND BACK AGAIN 001

         I particularly like this black and red sample I made.  I named it “Blood Moon” because the early morning after I assembled it, I saw my first actual “blood moon” – quite an amazing sight.

 

 

 

THERE&BACK

 

    Was recently at Picket Fence Quilts in Wichita, Ks.  Lisa, the owner, got out a mirror.  I am now so inspired to create a quilt with 4 of these blocks as a center medalion, layout would be on point. 

 

     P.S.  If you’ve never been on a quilt shop bus tour, put it on your bucket list!   Last weekend in April I went with some friends (and new friends) to quilt shops in Kansas, Nebr, Iowa, and Missouri.  Had great fun – and oh my – so many beautiful fabrics.

CHARMED, I’M SURE

CHARMED

 

    Have gotten on a kick designing with charm squares – something I haven’t gotten into before.

    I dove into my scraps and designed this 66×75 lap quilt with 189 charm squares and some fun spring applique.  I like!
