With all the great weather lately I have been very neglectful of my blog. I can be found most mornings on the pickleball courts near my home. I have more scrappy quilts to share resulting from the Scrap Sewciety BOM that I arranged for the Etobicoke Quilters Guild. Laurie; a relatively new quilter didn’t have a stash so she used a co-ordinatated grouping of FQ’s. I have loved the grey/soft yellow combination since Alfred Sung came out with a clothing collection of those colors years ago.
I love that you have to really look to find some blocks and others are very easy to see.
I have one more quilt for you to feast your eyes, unfortunately there is only one picture. Mary also made this for her granddaughter, who is just getting a big girl bed! Mary added a lot of extra blocks and didn’t follow the guidelines that I provide for putting the quilt together, something about needing a more symmetrical look. I applaud the result, as I know it takes a lot of math to get things right.
She kept her blocks in groupings by colouring and didn’t make a string star block. She added a lot of heart blocks of different sizes and filler (coping) strips of half square triangles. She quilted this herself using my all-time favourite;the Baptist Fan. I only wish I had closeups to share.
If you belong to a guild, I am offering this as a guild project with great instructions and encouragement via zoom, so please feel free to contact me, I would love to work with you. There are beautiful quilts waiting to be made from your stash!
I love seeing different versions of this beautiful pattern. Looking forward to starting mine this summer. I think I’ll do it in neutrals like the original.
It is great to see variations of the same pattern. Fabric colours, placement of blocks and the actual quilting all playing a part. The Grimsby Quilters’ Guild has taken up the challenge as their 2021-2022 BOM with Sandy’s assistance. So looking forward to seeing more examples of this quilt. We all have a lot of money invested in our ‘scrap bin’ so why not make a beautiful scrappy quilt with them.
that first one is really beautiful mom!
I really love all the variations people have come up with!
