Pies & Tarts

Cynthia likes to do handwork, and she made this fabulous Pies & Tarts quilt (pattern by Sue Daley). She asked for light custom quilting, and this is the result. It’s a lovely quilt and a great scrapbuster for those who enjoy English Paper Piecing.

Seeing Stars

Red and white is such a striking combination, and I really like how Paige used these colours in her quilt, especially the positive/negative effect with the red stars in the centre and the white stars in the border. Just lovely. We chose the pattern “Whisper” for quilting, a basic swirly pattern that complements the straight lines and sharp angles of the pieced top.

Japanese Cranes

Sandra made this lovely quilt in red, white and black, and she didn’t want any quilting over the embroidery in the four bird blocks. We decided on semi-custom, and I used the pantograph “Champagne Bubbles” for most of the quilt and then filled the background of the bird blocks with a smaller circular filler design.

Three Cat Quilts

Debbie didn’t make just one cat quilt but brought me three for quilting, all are going to be gifted to the cat lovers in her life. For two of them we chose the paw print panto “Puppy Paws”. The third one had musical cats, so to mix it up a bit we went with music notes for quilting.

Bonnie Hunter Spools Challenge Quilt

Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville has lots of ideas on how to use up scraps and is particularly fond of the “leaders and enders” method. Back in 2013 she came up with a leaders and enders challenge featuring the spool block. Lisa put together this scrappy top with tiny spools, and I quilted it with a simple pattern called “Celtic Scroll”. The quilt is so busy that it didn’t need any elaborate quilting. Didn’t it turn out just wonderful?

Violets

This lovely quilt was pieced by Liz. It is one of those that I can stare at for hours, and my brain will come up with all kinds of secondary patterns. I just love this kind of quilt, made up of fairly simple blocks but clever placement and fabric choices give the eye so much to discover. Liz chose a simple swirly pattern called “Constance” to finish her quilt.

Strippy Diamonds

Here is another quilt suitable for Jelly Rolls, this one was made by Denise. Aren’t the colours just lovely? And if you take a step back and/or squint, the layout seems to become almost three-dimensional, with half of the blocks floating above the others in a gentle wave. Or maybe that’s just the way my weird brain works but I absolutely love it. The batiks Denise used have floral and leaf patterns, and since green is the dominant colour in her quilt, we chose the leafy design “Jasper” to finish her project.

Key Lime Pie

Here is another quilt made by Lillian. Aren’t the colours just striking? I love how the black strips pull it all together. The quilt didn’t need elaborate quilting, and Lillian chose the modern design “Taj Mahal” to finish her project.

Grapevine

This quilt in purple and pink was made by Lillian. What an excellent design for Jelly Rolls! Lillian liked the modern look of “Champagne Bubbles”, and all those quilted circles work nicely with the straight lines of the pieced top.

Nine Patch Stars

This cheerful quilt in bright colours was also made by Bonnie. I love this pattern, it can easily be used for a scrap quilt, and it is also one of those that shows secondary designs when you look at it long enough. In fact it has been a while since I quilted this, and I wondered why I called it Nine Patch Stars because I couldn’t see any stars at all… until my brain figured it out and presented me with Ohio Stars that have a Nine Patch block in the centre. The quilting design Bonnie chose for her quilt is called “Constance”.

Hummingbirds

“Hummingbirds” is a lovely quilt in soft colours made by Bonnie. She chose the design “Ginger Flower” to finish her project. Once again I would like to point out that the quilting is not as visible in reality as it seems in the pictures. It does not take away from the quilt itself, there are some tricks to make it more visible in pictures.

Beach Glass

“Beach Glass” is a Trip Around The World quilt made by Penny, using an assortment of batiks. Aren’t the colours just lovely? The pattern we chose for quilting is called “Felicity”, and its curves and up and down movement create the feeling of gently rocking waves.
