Potpourri

Blog readers have been busily sewing this summer. I’m sharing pictures of their projects for inspiration. Enjoy!

Linda shares a picture of her Jelly Roll quilt and writes, “After fussing over this for a year, I finished Jenny Doan’s “Flying Geese Log Cabin” from Missouri Star Quilt Company. It was made using Moda Batik “Breezy” jelly roll plus additional bright batiks from my stash. The outer border is Moda Edyta’s Essentials “Cherry Paisley.” I am a penpal with a very nice young lady, age 13, who picked out the fabric for this quilt. After seeing the pattern in Jenny’s quarterly “Block” book, Winter Vol 2, Issue 1, I thought it was a match made in heaven!! It is a beautiful quilt and should be a keepsake that will be treasured for many years.”

Janice writes, “I attended your ‘Get the Point’ workshop in Raleigh and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I get tired of making the same thing over and over, so when I had 30 or so blocks, this is what I came up with using some of the other jelly roll strips as dividers, a black inner border, and another outer border.  I like it and think it looks pretty good.  I wanted to show you how it turned out.  You must indulge me because one of the best picture is with Beamer, my beautiful cat, lying on it.”

   

Lori made a quilt for her daughter, Anna, with two Layer Cakes and some yardage. The pattern is one I designed, “Arcadian Garden.” Aren’t the fabrics so pretty and feminine? She plans to scallop the edges, following the cable quilting design.

Pam made a beautiful quilt to welcome her granddaughter into the world. The lovely fabrics coordinate with the nursery décor. Click the picture to zoom in; you’ll see “Lilly Kay” embroidered on the quilt. Great idea, Pam!

Just a little reminder that our pre-cut challenge for the third quarter (July-September) is Layer Cakes. If you have a Layer Cake beautifying your sewing room, why not turn it into a quilt? There’s no time like the present!
