More Teasing

Not much time to post, but here are a couple pictures of what I’ve been working on in the last week or so:

This is a closeup of a super quick quilt that honestly took very little time to piece together. I keep hearing that quilters only want easy-peasy quilting projects, so I figured I would try to come up with a couple. Here’s what the whole top looks like (before quilting):

I’m hoping to get some time this weekend to baste it and start quilting it. And here’s what that “bird block” from a few weeks ago is looking like as it sits on the floor with 2 other blocks and some audition fabrics:

(Excuse all the mess that surrounds it!) I just love that quilt…it’s so happy and uplifting and it makes me think of spring! I can’t wait to get it pieced and quilted!

And we have a new pattern in the store…it’s called The Textured Flower Wall Hanging and it uses Texture Magic to add dimension to the flower centers, just like in our Texture Magic video. I owe many thanks to Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods because she wrote the pattern instructions for me! Thank you, Celine!

    I love your “quick” quilt – colors are beautiful!

  3. Cornwoman Says:

    The quilt colors make those feathers seem to float and really gives it dimension! Your bird quilt is indeed a happy piece!

    When you get the time could you post about scissors. I am just starting to learn to applique. I am feeling like my scissors are just not ‘cutting’ it. they are sharp but may be the wrong size or shape for the job. I would appreciate any advice you would have for quicker and easier cutting of all those intricate curves.

  5. Claire Pereira Says:

    OK—soooo just how many of those feather dies do you have?

    Very interesting projects…you ARE SUCH a tease!

    The only difficulty I’m having sometimes is trying to figure out how big your blocks are.

    Just lovely quilts though.

    Your work is sensational. I had the opportunity to take a class where we used your books. Thank you for your talent. Feathers are my favorite, yours a beautiful. What an inspiration!

  7. Brita Says:

    Loving the layout of the new quilt. Just not loving the two (on the right) strips of fabric that have pink in them, while the others are perfect-o. I’m always amazed with the designs you come up with!

    Patsy, the blue and red are absolutely stunning together.

    And you used my favorite color of blue! Looks like lots of fun.
