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”.

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!

      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!

HELLO QUILTMAKER 100 BLOCK TOURISTS!

7 Nov

MAYWOOD BLOSSOM – my contribution to this wonderful Vol 2 of  QUILTMAKER 100 BLOCKS  issue.  What fun!  I so enjoy designing applique with easy lines, and sometimes with a twist.  I have a full-time job besides this great adventure of designing, so I’m big on do-able projects.  I’ve worked about 6-7 yrs.  for a quilt shop, and taught many students in sampler classes.  I still have students of mine visiting with me at Prairie Quilt Guild meetings.   They are still quilting and loving it – does my heart so good!   And what an opportunity in Quiltmaker’s magazine to have a whole world of sampler blocks available to you!

October was extremely busy – I designed several new patterns for local quilt shops for the shop hop event.  Then preparing for Houston after that.  At Houston, I enjoyed meeting June and some staff of QUILTMAKER.  I’m making up some lost time with hubby, and the three dogs.  Am anxious to get to the drawing board with another block idea bouncing around in my head for a future issue of 100 more blocks!

Be sure to check out previous blogs about new friends from England, and Halloween at Houston market.                        

Please return to my website in the near future to see the new patterns I took to Houston market, or contact me  – I would love to share them with you asap!

JOYFUL STITCHING  TO ALL!
