WELCOME QM 100 BLOCKS VOL 11 TOURISTS !!!

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.

Copy of 2015 TERI SAMPLER

      Had a FABULOUS time as usual at annual retreat sponsered by Picket Fence Quilts (Wichita) 

       Here are more of my sampler pattern completed by these lovely “fellow-retreaters”.

       This pattern was such a success at a quilt shop in Texas, they are using it for a beginner class.

QUILTMAKERS 100 BLKS VOL 10 – WHO KNEW WE’D COME THIS FAR!

16 Nov

WELCOME TO ALL! ESPECIALLY QUILTMAKER’S 100 BLOCKS VOL 10 BLOG TOURISTS!

Copy of 2014 BUNNY-GO-ROUND VOL 10

      BLOCK #957  /  PAGE 47

       BUNNY-GO-ROUND

        Being a sampler geek, I love looking through stacks of block books, and dissecting the blocks.   I was doing just that when part of a block reached right off the page and this fun ditty is the result.

       I particularly like that bunnies can be made without the use of applique.   (Note:  if block used for baby quilt, please stitch the eyes instead of using buttons)

P- 1 BLOCK

 

    ONE-BLOCK HOORAH

      I heard a quilter say they wanted a wall hanging for t-shirts. And voila’ !   This is a BONUS pattern.  The 12″ finished block is just right for one t-shirt (for your office or a college dorm room) AND for any block from QUILTMAKERS 100 BLOCKS issues! What a party!

2014 MAYFLWER 1 BLOCK

 

 

 

   Here is my MAYWOOD BLOSSOM   (Block #137   Vol 2) dropped into the ONE BLOCK HOORAH setting.   I love it!

 

 

 

Copy of 2014 NEXT EXIT

 

      NEXT EXIT

   QUILTMAKER  / SEPT-OCT 2014   issue

       And once again, I was dissecting a sampler block that I designed, and the corner of the block “reached out”.  After several doodles on the graph paper, this quilt was born.  Promptly went out and bought new fabrics and made a quilt top, photographed it, and submitted to Quiltmaker.

       They accepted the design, sent me lovely new batiks and here’s the prize!    Quiltmaker also teamed up with the  ACCUQUILT die numbers for Accuquilt users.  Fabrics are beautiful batiks Bali Handpaints and Striped Blender both from Hoffman California Fabrics.

     I’m sure you can still run right out and get your very own copy of this issue.

CHRY STAR 1

 

     Here is CHERRY STARBURST.   Block #874 in Vol #9.  I LOVE (!) designing sampler blocks.  When I worked at a quilt shop, I taught many sampler block classes and have been a block fanatic since.

 

 

 

                I am almost finished making this quilt for PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD SHOW in June 2014.  This is actually a  computer-generated photo.  The nearly finished product is even more beautiful!

Block-of-the-Month Quilts go for good cause

26 Apr

VERA'S BOM

 

                   I designed a block-of-month for my guild newsletter last year (now my pattern “SIMPLY SAMPLER”).

    Miss Vera (who also is a CASA volunteer)(and quite the overachiever) made four of these quilts and donated two for the CASA auction.  They sold for $500 and Vera was told they were going to a good home.

    Bless you, Vera, for all the ways you give of yourself to this cause.

   Aren’t quilters just the best!
