Lug Nuts Raffle Quilt from Night Owl Quilting




My good friend (and prolific client) Reneta and I joined forces to make this version of the the Highway 10 Designs Lug Nuts pattern.  We are donating the quilt to the senior band at our local high school (that both of our babies belong to) for a fundraising raffle. 
Want a $2 ticket to win this beauty? - I can hook you up!



This quilt was truly a team effort.  Reneta provided the top fabric, and I the backing and batting.  I cut the strips, she sewed strips sets, I cut again, she made the  half hexagons, we laid it out ...

Gail's Lug Nuts from Night Owl Quilting



This awesome version of Lug Nuts was made by Gail.  Gail was a student in a workshop I taught in January.   I loved the rich neutral fabrics that she had selected, and was very curious as to how her choice of one brick red fabric would look in the final product.   (Lug Nuts uses nine different fabrics and we normally suggest 3 lights, 3 mediums and 3 darks.)  I think end result is awesome!

  



Gail prefers a light touch with the quilting and chose one of my newer pantographs called "Expression".  Gail chose to do the optional pieced back to ...

Floral Quilts are Blooming! from Quilted Joy

Flowers are blooming here at Quilted Joy. Floral motifs are so popular with fabric designers, so it is not uncommon for us to see many beautiful quilts sporting a floral design. They can be as unique and elegant as there are unique and elegant blossoms in the world. Here are a handful of some of the flora that have crossed our threshold in recent months.

Blue Valley Quilters - Kansas from Collector with a Needle

BJ's Blooming Dogwood
I had a great time with the Blue Valley Quilters Guild in Kansas.

I opted to drive so I could take more quilts.

It was a lovely drive, the further south I went, the more green I saw. There were red buds blooming amongst the lime green on spring tree buds.

I listened to an audio book and before you know it, I was there!





On arrival I was greeted with a warm welcome.
I met the guild board and we enjoyed delicious grilled steak dinner and all the trimmings.

Before I headed off to my ...

Slanted Half Hex Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Slanted Half Hex

The Rainbow Connection Update from Curlicue Creations

Here's the latest photo of my in progress hexie quilt, The Rainbow Connection.  I've been sewing along, slowly but steadily.  I need to stop and cut more hexies out of my scraps again.  That is my goal for today.  Do you like the progress?  I'm loving it.

Seen at the Elegant Geometry exhibit at the Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati, Ohio

I like to give myself presents.  After all, I know exactly what I want and I don't judge my own quilt obsession.  In fact, I think it is perfectly normal.  You do, too.  That's what I like so much about you.

My special gift this year was a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio, to see the Elegant Geometry quilt exhibit at the Taft Museum of Art.  If you are a ...

Classics Reimagined from Quilted Joy

The word classic means “judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.” What this means, is classic quilt designs are classic because they have stood the test of time and are considered appealing no matter the age. But beauty can be added to, and innovation can bring new life to old but beautiful designs. These quilts are classics, even if some have a twist.

Lisa’s Hexies Quilt (Times Two!) from Quilted Joy

Have you ever made a quilt and had so much fun, you needed to make another one right away? Lisa knows how you feel! Lisa made these two very similar (and very cute!) hexagon quilts. One is for herself and the other one is for her daughter.

This first one has a modern feel with the grey background and muted colors in her hexagons.

The Rainbow Connection Hexagon Quilt Update from Curlicue Creations

It's been a while since my last update on The Rainbow Connection.  Here it is, laid out on my patio.  Funny how hard it is to hang a star shaped top up to get a photo.  That just wasn't working out.  As you can see, all the star arms are completed.  I'm filling in the corners with stripes of black and more rainbow.

Netherlands Part Three Quilt It & Dotty from Collector with a Needle

While in the Netherlands I shared some of my hexagon quilts at Quilt It Dotty.

Quilt-It Dotty, (Dorry van Osch) a quilt shop in Overloon Netherlands hosted me. Generous, gracious exceptional hostess!

She booked two full days of fun!  The hexagon program we did Saturday we repeated with another group on Sunday.  I am so thrilled with their interest in antique quilts.

This is a view from the kitchen door - looking through the French door window panes into the great room.
The quilts are laid out ready for the lecture and trunk show.

This room was later transformed into stitching ...
