Fractured Bars Quilt

This quilt is so vibrant!   Barbara could not remember the pattern name and although I searched a bit online, I could not find anything similar.  At first glance you think a log cabin, but it is not a log cabin design at all, no "hearth" or center log.   She choose a variegated thread for the colored section and a stylized curly feather stretched to fill those areas.  We both think it turned out awesome!





Seashell Pinwheels

Isn't this georgous?!  I don't know the name of the block but it is made with strips and has that bias rolled back edge like the 10 minute block.  No actual curved piecing.  The fabrics are so pretty and the backing...love!   King sized and as pretty as it is, I sure was happy to reach that last row.   I stitched a swirl design that resembles a seashell in that space and created a feathery design to fit the black irregular units.

I can finally post this one!  The quilt was made by the board members for the outgoing president of one of the guilds that I belong to and quilted by me.   It was presented to her last week and she seemed thrilled.   It's in colors she loves.  The pattern is  from a Charlotte Angotti mystery class a few years ago.I quilted this with a hand guided panto called Wedding Bouquet over the body of the quilt and finished with custom echoed swirl and feather borders.

Kitty raw edge appliqué

This was my first time using fused batiks, with the edges stitched  down with the longarm.    I loved the appliqué!   My stitching/quilting...not my best but cute.   Made for my musician granddaughter.  I will try the technique again though.  The  pattern is called "Maestro...I'm Ready"


I loved the thread and after I buried almost half of one side, I  realized how cute it would have been with  thread  dangling as whiskers
