While there wasn’t any show & share time during our afternoon meeting on Tuesday, we had some great quilts brought to our workshop yesterday, and I wanted to share them with you!
I am always amazed at what a dark background does for a scrappy quilt!
This is Lazy Sunday ---the colors in my quilt are the same as this one, the only thing that has changed is the black background, and look how dynamic! I LOVE IT!
This top will soon be quilted. Doesn’t it just shimmer?
This is on my bucket list ---I NEED to do some quilts with dark backgrounds just to break me out of my neutral rut ((Even though I love my neutrals!))
You can find the pattern for Lazy Sunday in my book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders. Will you try it with a dark background, or a light one?
Blue Ridge Beauty, Biggie Sized!
Wouldn’t this make a great quick and scrappy baby quilt or lap quilt? The units finish at 4” instead of 3”. Perfect for using those 2.5” strips. Another thing that I love to see with a pattern. Change the scale of the patches, change the look of the quilt! You can find the pattern for Blue Ridge Beauty in my book Adventures with Leaders & Enders.
Scrappy Batik Braids!
What a great way to use up odd ends of 2.5” strips. A rainbow of color and texture, and a great lap size for a quick finish! You can find the pattern for the simple Pioneer Braid HERE, also under the Free Patterns Tab at the top of the blog. Build the braids and sew them together with sashings, strippy style!
Grand Illusion came to town!
Double border to increase length!
Wanting the quilt just a bit longer, our quilter mirror imaged the border on the top and bottom! I love the effect! There are so many of these quilts being finished! I love to see them!
Let’s plan on another Grand Illusion Link-up, on Friday, January 30th so those of you who are still working on Grand Illusion and making progress can share where you are!
