My home state of North Carolina sports some amazing quilters!
Over the two days I spent in Durham I was treated to a veritable scrappy quilt parade of color. What a delicious array of wonderfulness!
The quilt shown here is Lazy Sunday from my new book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders, and was featured in Quiltmaker Magazine in 2013 as a 4 part mystery.
And you guessed it, on my quilt, all the bonus triangles from the outer purple border were used in my sister’s baby quilt, Emery’s Stars---I love my bonus triangles!
She did such a great job, I could swear this quilt looks like mine, only bigger!
Black and Red Braids!
I also love how this photo is framed by twin pink shirts! There are a lot of free patterns in the free patterns tab that I would consider “sleepers”. They just don’t get a lot of notice, or they are kind of buried under other labels. If you click the Pioneer Braid Border link under the free patterns tab, you will find other uses for braids than just borders!
And that is how this quilt was made..instead of using the braids as a border, it’s used as the center of the quilt as shown on the baby quilt I made on the Pioneer Braid Border pattern page. Notice this braid does NOT have cornerstones…isn't it a great masculine quilt? Thanks for sharing it, ladies!

Great work, ladies! You make it all look so fun – and it is!
I’m home for the next two days ---and I’m treating these days like a “weekend home”. I hope there will be much sewing time. I’m also thinking that Quilt-Cam can happen TOMORROW evening at 9pm Eastern. Stay tuned for updates on that ---I’m leaving for Virginia and Pennsylvania on Thursday.
Have a super Tuesday, everyone!
