0719 mardi gras christmas

MARDI GRAS Christmas 40″x 56″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

A friend cleaned out her stock of 2 1/2″ strips of metallic Christmas fabrics, from her days of making tablerunners for sale.  From part of them, I made some MARDI GRAS blocks, the medium/dark busy ones like the outside round of blocks in the quilt.

0718 polka blues

POLKA Blues 42″x 56″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

To use up the hummingbird print and more of the blue strips, I made some POLKA blocks with 15 strips.  It made a total of 20 blocks.  Since the colors were so soft, I didn’t like the usual POLKA layout, so I tried flipping every other block upside down.  I had enough of the print to make a small border to make the quilt a bit bigger.  The hummingbird fabric is now gone, and maybe half of the blue strips.  All good fun and done.

0716 gemini blues

GEMINI Blues 44″x 57″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

I found a bag of scrap 2 1/2″ blue strips.  So here we go with another adventure to see what I can do with them.  I don’t have to use all 20 strips that the GEMINI pattern calls for.  It is designed to use a 20 strip pack or half of a 40.  So made 12 blocks, and put a little floating border all around, using up every last inch of the background piece.  Hooray –  fast, fun and done.

0715 show biz tulip

SHOW BIZ Tulip 45″x 54″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

There was a second tulip panel across the width of the sample fabric swatches I was playing with.  So I did SHOW BIZ with the center like GYPSY two days ago.  I found a scrap of purple and framed the 16 1/2″ panel square with 1 1/2″ strips to get it to the 18 1/2″ we need.  Then it was a matter of rounds with the brick scrap pieces.  I did one less round, mostly because I ran out of pieces in the right colors.  But also because I like this size.

0714 leslie england

LESLIE England Swings 42″x 54″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

This is a variation of LESLIE, featuring large theme fabric squares.  The pieced blocks are a little different.  And the pieced border was probably to use up leftovers from the pieced blocks.  It is not written as a pattern yet, but I might.

0713 gypsy tulip

GYPSY Tulip 36″x 45″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

Instead of the Four Patch center for this GYPSY,  I used a panel square and bordered it so it became 18 1/2″.  Then I used some of my scrap 5″x 9 1/2″ slices to do the border rounds.  I decided to alternate light and dark rounds, and love the effect.
