Vintage Tin

“Vintage Tin” is a Crabapple Hill pattern, and this beautiful version was stitched by Sandra. I didn’t have a pantograph that looked like tire tracks, so we settled on “Celtic Scroll” instead, claiming it looked a bit like hubcaps. Maybe it was just our imagination, but it is a simple scroll pattern that worked well for the quilt.

Midnight Blooms

This is the last of three quilts that Angela of Cozy Cottons Quilting dropped off for quilting at the same time, a great pattern to feature a fabric that you don’t want to cut into tiny pieces. She chose the design “Diagonal Plaid Bias Cut” to finish her project.

Strippy Hearts

Here is another great pattern for a Jelly Roll. I especially love all the pink but the hearts would look great in any other colourway too. This quilt was also made by Angela of Cozy Cottons Quilting and she chose a heart pattern called “P.S. I Love You” to finish her project.

Ocean Spray

This lovely quilt in blue and turquoise was made by Angela. If you are local and haven’t met Angela, you should absolutely come and do so. In March she opened a new quilt shop in town, Cozy Cottons Quilting. She isn’t just a wonderful quilter, she is also a very friendly and cheerful person, and if petting fabrics at a quilt shop doesn’t put you in a great mood, Angela certainly will. This quilt and many others are displayed in the store as samples. The pattern Angela chose for her quilt is called “Overlapping Crop Circles”, one of my favourites. It has a modern look and adds great texture.

Giraffe Abstractions

I have quilted a couple of “Elephant Abstractions” for customers but never a Giraffe before. This one was made by Karen as a donation for a fundraiser, and she asked for simple quilting, so we chose the pattern “Taj Mahal”. Didn’t it turn out just wonderful?

Stiletto Stars

Lynnette made this quilt using the fabric line “Stiletto” by Basic Grey/Moda. Doesn’t it look elegant? I especially love the checkerboard border and how it blends into the background. The modern pantograph Lynnette chose for her project is called “Overlapping Crop Circles”.

Jelly Roll Race

Kelley made this fabulous Jelly Roll Race quilt. I quilted it with “Champagne Bubbles”. These always work well with lots of straight lines in a quilt top but they look especially great with the modern fabrics in Kelley’s quilt.

Falling Charms

“Falling Charms” is a great pattern for charm packs (or leftover squares), and this cute little quilt was made by Mary. The soft colours and floral patterns pretty much ask for floral quilting, and Mary chose the design” Ginger Flower” to finish her project.

Dancing Wave Bargello

Darlene, the Bargello queen among my customers, dropped off another Dancing Wave Bargello to be quilted. Most of the time her quilts are huge and get to the limits of my frame, and every time she swears she will never do another one as big. We get a good chuckle out of that because we both know it is just a question of time before she’ll be back with another one. This one is a gift for her daughter, and the daughter requested the pattern “Ripples” that I had used on another one of Darlene’s quilts before.

Criss Cross

This modern quilt in mostly blues and greys was made by Muryn. It is a nice pattern for a Jelly Roll, or you could cut your strips from yardage which might give you more control over colour placement. Muryn chose the design “Overlapping Crop Circles” for quilting, one of my favourites for quilts with lots of straight lines and right angles, and it also adds great texture.

Whirligig

Sandra has been using up scraps, and this is another interesting pattern that she came up with. I like scrap quilts with a solid background colour, and this one has a secondary pattern as a bonus, quite lovely. Sandra chose the pattern “Melange” to finish her project.

Tea Time

“Tea Time” is a great pattern for Jelly Rolls, and this quilt was made by Amanda. I was especially excited about all the pink and purple, of course, but it would look lovely in any colours. Amanda chose the pantograph “Champagne Bubbles” for her project, an excellent choice for all those straight seams and angles.
