Sweet Persimmons from Nestlings By Robin

I have never had a persimmon 
and maybe I should try 
one now that I have named 
a quilt after them:)
New in the November
issue of AQ Magazine
meet Sweet Persimmons.
This sweet design started 
out in a 30s rendition.

Once I started thinking in Autumn
colors, I came up with this palette.
Still really like it and may have
to put this grouping to work
in another project!

Looks great, right?

Sometimes I can't see past my 
own vision but I also had 
this Sandy Gervais print sitting
around that I had been wanting 
to use in ...

My Feature in Quiltfolk Magazine: Nevada Issue 15 from Christa Quilts

I love reading quilt magazines that are more than just a bunch of patterns. So when QuiltFolk debuted in 2016 it was a no-brainer for me to get a subscription and I’ve enjoyed every issue since then!

Imagine my pleasant surprise when editor in chief Mary Fons called me up earlier this year (before the world went a little haywire) and asked if she could feature me as one of the stories in their Nevada issue which published earlier this month.

Now, for those of you who don’t know, this amazing magazine tells stories about quilters all over ...

WHERE LOVE GROWS from Nestlings By Robin

Thank you SIMPLY MODERNE for publishing this fun 
combination of paper piecing and applique'.
 Meet WHERE LOVE GROWS!
I did pretty well matching my colors
to make it cheerful.
Paper piecing trick: 
I collect notions and such and one of 
the items are the old heavy metal irons.
They are great weights for pressing
a pile of paper pieced blocks FLAT!!

There is an addition of some bias strips 
to the simple paper pieced blocks 
 to create the larger branches. 
I also stitched in some 
little skinny ones for texture.
Then my favorite part...the APPLIQUE'!!!
This is raw edge ...

Quilty Things to Read from Goer

Here are a few of my favorite quilty things to read lately.

Books

My newest quilt book is The Quilter's Field Guide to Color by Rachel Hauser. Not only is it a colorful feast for the eyes, but it is an interactive workbook with a large color swatch library and 14 experiments.

In addition to books about quilting and fabric and color, I read the entire Quilting Cozy series by Carol Dean Jones this year. The books follow the lives of a group of retirees (and various other characters) who live in a quaint, retirement village. Sarah Miller, main ...

WINTERBERRIES from Nestlings By Robin

This block design is so versatile and I knew that I wanted it in Christmas colors so I started pulling shades of green and red and throwing them on the floor so I could think on them.

Isn't this a sweet little print?!
It gives so many colors to play with.

Let the chain piecing begin and be 
mindful of those 1/4" alignments.

 Here is a picture of a test block so you can 
see it in another colorway ...very sweet!
The more important part of this picture is showing the alignment
of the triangles ...
