It took a little longer than I thought it would, but here they are:
This bright spring wall hanging was fun and easy to make. It is from the book Stop, Drop, and Roll. I like projects that use lots of different fabrics. The sewing never gets dull when your eyes are constantly entertained with new color and design.
This one was another fast one. That blob at the top of the center in the picture is the light shining through from behind the quilt top. The borders with corner posts are easy to cut to size and easy to sew accurately. The flowers are fused on. We like this one so much that we've put together a few kits for it. The kits come in two colors...one is just like the sample and the other uses the same black and whites, but pairs them with turquoise. Yum!
No, the quilt isn't crooked, just the camera shot. This sample shows how simple blocks and simple colors make a great design. The fabric is from Nancy Halvorsen's Forever Spring line and the pattern is from Sweet & Simple Baby Quilts. The nine patch blocks use a variety of blue fabrics while the yellow in the half square triangles remains the same. I love the softness of this sample.
Here's a bonus! We are getting Moda's Hullabaloo line in April. I ordered a fat quarter bundle in advance so I could get a closer look at the prints and start working on a sample. The prints in these blocks represent the softest of this line. It gets to be lots of fun with the brighter colors, too. I stuck with a classic quilt from the Happy Hour book, since it so easily shows off a variety of prints. I love the animal print in this group. All of these fabrics are perfect for bibs, burp cloths, and other baby items.
The girls did a fabulous job tidying up the shop over the weekend. We want to look our best while the Cotton Patch Quilt Show "Hot Threads, Cool Quilts" is in town. The show is March 4-6. If you get a chance to go to the show, look for our full page ad in the program and then come on over for a visit.
