Adding Borders and Quilt Blocks to a Collage Quilt from Patchwork Posse

For the past little bit I’ve been working on the Horse Quilt for Eliza.

I had picked up the pattern at a local quilt show and knew it would be perfect for her.

She loves horses, but I didn’t really want something that was all the traditional horse room.  Right now her room is a grouping of cute eclectic things and they all work together.

There was one wall though that needed something.  A quilt was the answer– (of course) and a horse quilt fit right in.

The center features a large horse that is layered applique fabrics ...

Cutting apart a Panel can Make for Creative Art from Quilted Joy

Some people look at panels and think “This is cheating. It takes no skill at all to make a quilt with a panel. It is someone else’s art.” I think you can look at the following quilts and agree that those statements could not be further from the truth. Panels are extremely useful and beautiful aspects of fabric that have their place in our art form. There are a lot of creative ways to cut apart a panel to make a beautiful and complicated pieced quilt top that any quilter can be proud of. Many panels are already set ...

Valentines Day quilts #2 from Amalie's Armfuls

As I was typing up my post about my best friends Valentines quilts, I started thinking about how we both purchase fabric at the same time that year.  I purchased a couple panels, a charm pack and a couple yards of fabric for backing and binding.  My panels also sat in a pile of unfinished projects for many years.  As I was pulling out my Valentines quilts this year to decorate, I was realizing that it is one of my largest collection of quilts.  Christmas, Fall, Halloween and the 4th of July certainly compare in the sheer volume of fabrics ...

Christmas 2017 from Amalie's Armfuls

Many years ago, I had to decide to let a few things go.  This blog was one of them.  I realized that if I wanted to have time to be a working mom and still sew that I couldn't spend time really posting.  So, I backed off and enjoyed a few years with my kids.  Does that mean that I stopped sewing?  Nope.  In fact I have sewn so many items in the past 5 years that I would have to spend a couple weeks sorting through the pictures to be able to find them all.

As I was ...

Our Renters are Quilting Their Christmas Quilts! from Quilted Joy

Christmas is just around the corner and nothing is homier than a beautiful handmade quilt. Here are two examples that came through our shop recently. Both have such warm Christmas colors and traditional piecing done beautifully.

Christmas Four Patch

Pat made a Christmas four patch on point using Buggy Barn fabric with a Kansas Troubles border. With all those straight lines in the piecing, the orange peel quilting using a design board makes a lovely contrast.

Christmas Panel Quilt

This quilt used a Christmas panel to great effect as a center, surrounded by borders including one of stars. Janet did a marvelous job of this as ...

It’s Time for a Renter Roundup from Quilted Joy

The longarm renters here at Quilted Joy have been hard at work on lots of different quilts. Let’s take a look at what they’ve been quilting!

Christmas Quilt

Pat is all set for Christmas! Is it just me or do the cornerstones look like ribbon and a bow on a present? This quilt will certainly keep Pat cozy during the holiday season. This quilt has a very traditional feel, so she quilted it using the meandering feathers design board.

And here’s one more quilt from Pat. She made this quilt a few years ago in a club at a ...

Scarlet & Silver, designed by Tricia Patterson
McCall’s Quilting November/December 2017
Kit available here.

scarlet and silver Scarlet silver flat shot 254x300 Panel Fun   Exploring Scarlet & SilverWhen I heard in a meeting, “I just don’t get it.” referring to the design of Scarlet & Silver in the November/December 2017 issue of McCall’s Quilting, I thought I might need to take another look at my design. I took an improvisational approach to the placement of the stain glass blocks in my quilt, laying them in a scrappy fashion while keeping the gray stars in formation. I agree this organic layout may not be to everyone’s taste. So, I figure ...

Colorful Quilts to Brighten Your Day from Quilted Joy

Is there a certain type of quilt that when you see it, you just can’t help but smile? For me it’s quilts with bold, bright colors! Those bright colors seem to spread hope and joy like a ray of sunshine. Here’s a few bright quilts from my renters.

Lone Star Quilt

This is Mary’s Lone Stars quilt. I really don’t know how anyone could look at this without smiling. The colors are so fun and playful! She quilted this with the feathers design board for lots of texture across the quilt.

Sunshine and Inspiration from Needle and Foot

Sunshine has been all to strong in my part of the world. We have had such an intensely hot summer this year. Craving fall, I decided to make something with this cute panel from the Red Rooster fabric line called Shine. This was designed by Jackie Paton and it is adorable. Autumnal colors, inspirational phrases, sunshine, kitties, owls — so much cuteness wrapped up into one fabric line! I have had it in the shop for a short while now and it has sold really well. Because I have a quilt show I am working later this month, I wanted to ...
