Greenhouse Quilt from Pieced Brain


I did say this week would be loaded with fun, right? Since this is the season of giving, how about another free pattern? This is "Greenhouse", my newest quilt pattern featuring the Island Breeze fabric collection designed by Chong-a Hwang for Timeless Treasures. My goal here is to help you dream of a trip to an island somewhere - is it working yet? :-)

Greenhouse measures 74" square (make it rectangular with another row) with 'window panes' allowing you to peek in the greenhouse and let your eyes feast on beautiful flowers. Here are some of the fabrics I used:

Twins!!! from Sew Preeti Quilts

Somethings are just better together like turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls and butter.  (Clearly, I have Thanksgiving on my mind.)

TWINS!!!
Here is my latest finish - two quilts that are just meant to be together. Because they are for twins.

A dear friend is going to be a grandma. She gleefully shared the news and her delight was supreme as she said - TWINS!!!

Candy & Cupcake

Monkey - ready to jump off the edge!

Autumn Jubilee Giveaway Winners Week 2 from From My Carolina Home

There is so much interest in the Inspired LED Sewing Machine Lighting kits, it is a tough competition to just have one winner this week.  These lights are such a great addition to a sewing machine or a counter area where extra light is such an asset.  It really is easier to thread a needle with the extra light.  (Note –  This picture is from Inspired LED, showing the marvelous lighting from their kits. This is not my machine, I do not own a Juki.)

Congratulations to Judy whose name was picked by the Rafflecopter.  Judy was sent an email, and ...

Stars on Autumn Lane Quilt Along from From My Carolina Home

The Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along starts today with a new pattern, Stars on Autumn Lane!  I have designed this with two options, both using exactly the same number of squares and half square triangles.  Pull your autumn colors, and quilt along!  The steps will come out once a week on Fridays, and be done in four weeks, with a final Friday post in November to wrap up the quilting and finishing.  The table topper is 36-inches square before borders, and will have only nine blocks, easily doable for your Thanksgiving table.  Since this is a quilt-along and not a mystery ...
