Keyhole Quilt Variation

This lovely quilt is a variation of the Keyhole quilt pattern and was made by Dorothy. It is a great pattern for Jelly Rolls. Or you could use your leftover strips from other projects for a scrappy look. Grey and yellow always look so elegant together, don’t you agree? Dorothy chose to have her project quilted with the design “Paisley Curls”.

Cyberspace

This rather unusual modern quilt was made by Karen as a decoration for her sewing room. What a great pattern to showcase modern fabrics that you don’t want to cut into small pieces! The turquoise fabrics add a nice splash of colour to the white, black and grey palette. It was quilted with the modern pantograph “Bauhaus” but with fabrics as busy as these the quilting doesn’t really show, so pretty much anything goes.

Tumbling Blocks

This Tumbling Blocks quilt is another one of Darlene’s projects. She is a very prolific quilter and likes to make big quilts. I love quilt patterns like this one that create a three-dimensional illusion, and I love Darlene’s colour choices. This pattern requires a lot of mitered seams which can be quite a daunting task but the result is worth the effort for sure. What a stunning quilt!

Windows Into Space

Jean chose the classic “Attic Window” setting to showcase this beautiful outer space fabric and turn it into a quilt for her grandson. Right now is a great time to be watching the night sky. Did you catch a glimpse of comet NEOWISE? We spent two evenings out watching it, and in addition we saw Jupiter and Saturn rise and also a couple of shooting stars. Speaking of shooting stars, the Perseid meteor shower is just a few days past its peak and should still be visible this weekend. But back to Jean’s quilt… we chose a pantograph with the fitting name “Starry Night”. I just did a tiny edit. In the original design the moon has a face contour, with a nose and open mouth which looks cute on a baby quilt but wasn’t really suitable for Jean’s project, so I changed this part into a curve and turned it into a simple crescent moon.

Churn Dash Chain

This quilt was made by Diane using leftover fabrics. She alternated two different blocks, creating a secondary design of diagonal chains running across the quilt. The pantograph she chose is called “Diagonal Plaid Bias Cut”.

Checkerboard Roses

Sharon collected rose fabrics for a while and used them for this lovely quilt in red, pink and green. The swirly rose pantograph called “Rose Garden” was the perfect choice for her project.

Scrappy Chains

One of our guild members, Cynthia, cut up all her scraps into 2″ squares. She then decided that she didn’t feel like sewing all those tiny squares together again and donated them to the guild. The We Care committee divided them and packed them into bags, and anyone who wanted to could take a bag home and turn the squares into a scrappy quilt. Gail accepted the “Cynthia Challenge”, and this “Scrappy Chains” quilt is the result. The pantograph is “Diagonal Plaid Bias Cut”. I thought it picked up the on-point squares of the chains very well and filled all that negative space nicely.

It’s All An Illusion

“It’s All An Illusion” is the name of this Missouri Star Quilt Company pattern. Mary made her elegant version in lovely blues. The pantograph we chose is called “Overlapping Crop Circles”, I love the texture it creates, and all thoses curves soften the angles and straight lines of the pieced top.

Garden Party

Donna made this quilt in bright colours using a fairly simple but very effective layout. It works well to showcase large prints and creates a nice secondary pattern. The pantograph we chose is called “Wedding Vine”.

Paige’s Log Cabin

This king size log cabin quilt in neutral colours was made by Paige. Isn’t it just beautiful? It is no secret that I usually love bright colours but I find the calm elegance of this quilt very appealing. Paige wanted a traditional design for this traditional quilt pattern, and we chose “Feathered Curls” for her quilt.

Jungle Babies

Another cute baby quilt, this one has a modern touch and was made by Mary. The pantograph we chose, Taj Mahal, is very close to the shapes in the outer border fabric which made it perfect for this project. It adds texture but stays in the background, and the quilting is on the lighter side which keeps the quilt soft and cuddly.

Baby Elephant

This darling little quilt was made by Barb as a baby shower gift. Isn’t that little guy just the cutest? The hearts scattered across the top made choosing a pantograph easy, this design is called “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”.
