SAVANNAH BREEZE

6 Sep

Took one of my favorite blocks from a previous project.  Repeated the blocks to make a good old-fashioned scrappy quilt!  I love the secondary design – love the whole thing!!!

NEW PATTERNS! OCTOBER SHOP HOP AND HOUSTON MARKET

15 Nov

P-CENTER STAGE

    I found this yummy soft green/tan batik and had to design a way to show it off.   Large squares are cut at 10″, so a “layer cake” could be used also.

     Great for any style fabrics, and novelty prints.  So very adaptable for any print, for your favorite guy or college student.

      CENTER STAGE  was actually “center stage” at local shop hop (pictured below)  I was honored when Lisa displayed the quilt on the bed at Picket Fence Quilt Co.

       NEW LOCATION:   Be sure to visit PICKET FENCE  at their new location in Wichita, at Central and Ridge Road.   Loads of parking makes it a breeze to come in and find more fabric goodies!

 

2014 CTR STG DISPLAY

      P-ZIP LINE

    ZIP LINE  is just right for a Jelly Roll or a Bali Pop.  It actually uses 38 (2-1/2″) strips.   The set I used for this model is “Tidepool”.  

      I’ve seen this week some new strip sets in lovely colors called by the names of birds:   Lorikeet, Hummingbird, and Cockatiel.   My, they’re so pretty and just waiting to “fly” into this quilt!

       And don’t forget it would make a great scrappy quilt from your stash.

 

 

P-CTR STAGE TPR

 

 

         CENTER STAGE TOPPER is the same concept as above CENTER STAGE quilt, but is 31″x31″, making a jiffy quick holiday topper or wall hanging with a great print.

          For shop hop, Lisa at PICKET FENCE chose some lovely fall prints for their model.

 

 

P-SPLIT LOG CABIN

 

 

        SPLIT LOG CABIN is my take on the log cabin block, use 1/3 yard cuts.  Strip piecing the print and the background make a very quick job of the “logs” for these approx 18″ blocks. 

       Again, adaptable for shades of your favorite color, or seasonal colors.   A stash-buster too.

        And it gets better!   With left-overs from log-cuts, YOU can design your own projects (placemats, a tablerunner, etc)    I chose to assemble them in one project (approx  42″ x 43″)SPLIT LOG 034

     HOUSTON 2014 

         Here’s a peek at my booth at market.  My, my!   That 10’x10′ space gets small really quickly.

      Celebrating a 40th market, there was a special red and white display for the “40th Jubilee”  Was quite a stunning display of large and small red/white projects.   

     And all the other quilts displayed from quilters world-wide are mind-boggling works of art.

      If you’ve never been, you need to put the Houston Festival on your bucket list!

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

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!

TANGERINE – ENERGY COLOR FOR THE YEAR 2012

29 Apr

Wow – timing is everything!  Have you noticed how much orange/tangerine is in all the stores these days?   TANGERINE TANGO will be available a 2012 Spring Market in Kansas City.   Several years ago while traveling to California and back, I collected lots of bright orange prints.   Have been doodling ever since to design a nifty scrappy pattern for them.   Finally in 2012 it all came together – this so dreamy easy pattern – comes in three sizes, baby Tangerine is a great quick project!
