0720 busy bee lou lou thi

BUSY BEE Lou Lou Thi 45″x 54″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

BUSY BEE is a perfect 10 fat quarter pattern.  The blocks are simple, and it uses up the leftovers for a fun border.  The blocks also make great charity projects–quick to cut up and piece.  If the colors are coordinated, it always looks great.

0719 pristine splash two

PRISTINE Splash two 48″x 48″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

I found another version of the PRISTINE that I started with the precuts Hoffman Fabrics had given me.  I did the joggling of the rows a little differently on this one, so it came out wider.

0718 rainbows end

RAINBOWS END Batik 42″x 53″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

Maywood gave us rainbow colored batiks, so naturally I chose RAINBOWS END.  The colors I chose didn’t quite work out as planned.  I needed a stronger contrast between the two groups of 3 fabrics.  I like it when a secondary pattern of rails emerges.

0717 seashell sea holly

SEASHELL Sea Holly 42″x 59″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

Another of the many Bali packs that Hoffman Fabrics gave us.  I tried SEASHELL with the Sea Holly 5″ squares.  SEASHELL calls for 2 background fabrics, usually similar, but I tried it with one light and one dark.  It didn’t work as I envisioned–it all came out lopsided and mushed.  The saving grace is the gorgeous color in the Hoffman fabrics.

0716 sheryl mimosa

SHERYL Mimosa 48″x 57″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

Windham Fabrics gave me this huge stack of fat quarters from their retro Mimosa collection by Another Point of View.  We sorted out different colorways, including 8 of these citrus and gray.  I love sewing  SHERYL–it is quick and it has the background/frame fabric to separate the prints so it doesn’t get mushy and busy.

0715 candyland blocks

CANDYLAND Blocks 40″x 57″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

I had 6 leftover blocks from the CANDYLAND cover quilt.  Not wanting just to toss them, I set them aside.  It became another quilt-in-a-tray finish.  I joggled them in a column like SUNDANCE and LOYAL FOLLOWING – and added the long strips to either side.  I tried to use a solid white or white on white – and it looked good.  But I can’t bear to have a white quilt–too impractical.  The ombre zigzag came the rescue.  Busy, but I always do busy.  I would maybe move the pieced column more to the left, but that is the way the center of the zigzag fell and once cut, too late.
