I had this dropped 9-patch idea in my head for a LONG time. When I got ready to work on the layout I was shooting ideas around, doing sketches, and finally the ideal.. SIMPLE way to make this came about! I was SO EXCITED! My friends Sue and Monica pieced the tops and tested the pattern.. they gave it the SEAL of Approval... exciting! The pattern will be available in early July
My friend Sue pieced this top. Then I asked Cindy to quilt straight lines. I wanted to see that very graphic addition to the quilt. This is also very doable for you on your machine at home.. and with a tonal or solid fabric, you REALLY see those lines! A super nice look.. i love it! This version is on the cover.
My friend Monica pieced this top. When I was talking to Shelly about ideas for the quilting she suggested to quilt feathers for a totally different look.
Aren't these amazing? Totally changes the look of the quilt and I think the quilting becomes more a feature here.
My Stitched pattern will have 4 sizes, because I want to make one for my bed.. wink!
Crib/wall that you see, double, Queen and King!
I used Jelly rolls plus the a feature fabric. A tonal or solid. I can't wait to make this in some other colorways to show you!
Now I'm off to Portland OR to the trade show. Watch here and at my Facebook page for updates over the next 4 days! So.... Do you think these guys will visit Quilt Market? Do you think some Food Trucks will park outside the convention center? Will there be enough coffee in Porland to keep me going? Come back often to find out over the next 4 days!
