GILDA Black and White 40″x 48″

GILDA Quilt Four is made from a pack of black and white charm squares.  I used all white background, in the style of our MELINDA JO pattern.  And I thought it needed a small border to give it some finality.

GILDA Quilt Three – I made the blocks with one light rail and one dark rail each.  This allowed for a Rail Fence/Lightning layout.  I also played with shading dark down to light and kept some of the diagonal rows shaded in the different colors–fun effects.

GILDA Quilt Two is colored the way the pattern is written–half of the blocks with one color of the rails, half with another.  It has the potential to achieve a basket weave effect, if the horizontals blocks are more one color and the vertical blocks another.

At the bottom of a scrap bag that I emptied, I found 2 charm packs.  I decided to go with GILDA and see what I could do for variations.  Here I used 4 bright solids for the rail pieces.  It worked great for the diagonal color run, and really punched up the colors in the charm squares.

Quilt Three is mostly vintage Amy Butler.  I used the remaining 5″x10″ slices of her True Colors that were used in the CHERISH.  And when cleaning out a bag of scraps, I found Midwest Modern scraps to add.  To complete the Hoot trilogy, I cut the leftover piece from MOONDANCE into these last four slices.  It was a Hoot to do these three quilts, and a lot of old fabric and scraps are done.

Quilt Two of the Hoot sew-down.  There was just a yard and half left, perfect for MOONDANCE.  I reached into a scrap box and found the corals–busy, but fun color.

0722 cherish hoot

CHERISH Hoot 41″x 57″

ENTER TO WIN THIS QUILT HERE.

I still had more than 2 yards left of this adorable Hoot fabric by Momo for Moda.  Time to use it up.  For Quilt One, there were some 5″x10″ slices sitting right next to this fabric, and it looked good to me.  I selected some and cut them down to 5″x 9 1/2″.  I decided to make the rows with only this size, instead of cutting some 5″ squares as the CHERISH pattern has us do.

Here’s the second of the Navy Batiks, made with one yard cuts.  I did the shading on this SNOW RUBY like I would for CLOUD NINE, with the 5 1/2″ light in the middle of the sets.  I love the effect here, and this is how the CLOUD NINE pattern was born.

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.
