Patricia’s Patches OP 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

I like the design, and the colours even though I think they would look like Christmas all through the year, but then a little bit of Christmas everyday would be nice.

The second design has me thinking that a simple pieced star block in low contrast fabrics would make a very interesting background for applique blocks. I feel a new project file is about to be opened, though an alternative approach would be to use the star shape as background quilting around the applique!

Love the inner border … breaks up an otherwise busy collection of blocks.

Love the second design too.

Patricia’s Patches OP 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting collection of blocks crates some contrast of shapes when mixed together.

I like mixing pieced and applique blocks together, and though as a beginner quilter I used sashing or different colour backgrounds to make them stand apart, I now prefer to use the same fabric around the edge of pieced blocks and the background for the applique block so they appear as part of the same design.

Same as the first … except for those four pieced blocks around the centre. My favourite is this last one.
