Fall Flowers

This quilt was also made by Maureen, and again I love looking at it, waiting for the secondary pattern to emerge. Maureen is a very accurate piecer, and it is always a pleasure to work on her quilts. The pantograph we chose is called “Melange”, a nice mixture of fairly traditional quilting elements that work well with this quilt.

Around The Square

Maureen made this quilt showcasing a floral fabric. I love how the chain pattern emerges when you look at it long enough. All these straight lines and sharp angles needed a curvy, flowing pattern to finish it, and we went with “Whisper”. It is a basic scroll pattern, and I especially like it because it is not as structured and symmetrical as many of these patterns are. Yes, I know… it’s weird that I say this considering that I am usually all about symmetry 🙂 But I really like how it flows across the quilt in a seemingly random manner.

Those Trees

Karen (a different Karen, not the one who made the Arctic quilt) made this modern Christmas quilt, using a pattern by Zen Chic. There is a lot of negative space which would have been fun to fill with custom quilting but that is very time-consuming, and Karen opted to go with a pantograph instead. We chose “Advent”, a Christmas tree pattern that works well with the pieced trees and fills the background nicely.

Hunny Bunnies BOM – Block #8

Tomato season has arrived, yay! If I could grow only one thing, I would definitely choose tomatoes. Nothing tastes better than the first homegrown tomato of the year. I thought it would probably take a bit longer this year with the cool, wet weather in June but the cherry tomatoes have been going strong for almost three weeks now, and I harvested the first big tomato yesterday. I am also starting to drown in cucumbers, I have blanched and frozen quite a few loads of beans, and my butternut squash looks better than ever. After a very frustrating start, this gardening year turned around quickly, and with the hot weather we are having now, I am really enjoying our drip irrigation, it was so worth it.

This month’s bunny is feeding geese at the pond. It is a fairly simple block, at least by my standards 😀 I really tried to keep the number of pieces down this year but there are a few blocks coming up later where it just wasn’t possible, so enjoy it while you can. The pattern will be available for free download until the end of the month and move to the pattern store when the September block is released.

Arctic Circle

Karen bought the material for this quilt as a kit on a cruise to Alaska a few years back. Unfortunately the thread colour isn’t visible in the pictures, we chose a variegated black/blue/purple/teal thread and the pattern “Felicity” and decided it was representing the northern lights. It looks so much better in reality but this was the best I could do. What a great souvenir!

I am going to take next week off but the August BOM block will of course be published on Monday.

Pink Lemonade

This sweet little baby quilt was made by Lisa. The back is cozy Fireside, and it shows the quilting nicely. The cheerful floral pattern is called “Flowers Rise Again”.

Rose Trellis

Here is another quilt made by Angela of Cozy Cottons Quilting. She had all these beautiful rose fabrics, almost too pretty to cut into pieces, and showcased them using this layout. I have a rose quilting pattern but we thought that would be too much, and Angela picked a leaf pattern called “Ground Cover” instead.

Christmas Garland

Let’s do a bit of Christmas in July with this beautiful quilt made by Angela of Cozy Cotton Quilting. I quilted it with the design “Holly Berries” which looks really nice on the white background and matches some of the Christmas fabrics she used.

Wild Roses

Pat made this quilt using a variety of rose fabrics. Her backings are usually a work of art too, she pieces them using leftover fabrics turning them into a second quilt top. It is pretty much impossible to center a quilt on a longarm machine in both directions because the backing is rolled up, and the top ends up where it ends up. Pat knows this and doesn’t care if it is perfectly centered or not. I quilted it with the pattern “Rose Garden”.

Trip Around The World

“Trip Around The World” is such a classic and timeless pattern, and it always looks different depending on the fabrics in the quilt. This version was made by Ruth, and I quilted it with a simple pantograph called “Fleur de Swirl”.

Fleur

“Fleur” is a quilt pattern by Susan Smith that has a little bit of everything… hexagons, appliqué, patchwork. Cynthia loves stitching by hand, and this is her beautiful version of the quilt.

Peggy’s Bargello

Have you ever made a Bargello quilt? I haven’t and I am not sure if I want to, but I certainly enjoy looking at them. This one was made by Peggy, and she chose the modern pantograph “Taj Mahal” to finish her project. I think this pattern works especially well with Bargello quilts.
