Trans-Tasman Bubbles from Wendy's Quilts and More

Here's my latest finish, Trans-Tasman Bubbles.  


This quilt is all hand pieced and hand quilted by me.  The pattern is by Willyne Hammerstein from her book Millefiori Quilts 4.  In the book it's called "Dancing Cheek to Cheek", but I called my quilt trans-Tasman Bubbles, because the circles keep disappearing and re-emerging as you look at it.  

The trans-Tasman bubble is an agreement between the New Zealand and Australian governments that lets citizens of those countries travel between the two countries without having to stay 14 days in managed isolation/hotel quarantine on arrival.  

However, as soon as ...

Here were the original layouts

so fun to make a center pieced
medallion and add the applique'.

Then I started playing with
a long wall hanging and 
layering the applique' sets

It is just so cheerful and a

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I received an advance image of my Heritage quilt pattern which is going to be in the next edition of QuiltMania magazine, issue 141.  This quilt was made by the Independence Hall Quilt Guild in Arnold, CA.....my guild.

My Ballet with Kaffe quilt waiting to be hand quilted

As I've been good and finished the English Paper Piecing on my Ballet with Kaffe quilt from Book 2 (photo above), I rushed out and ordered some templates for two of the quilts in Book 4.  

I chose "Send Flowers to Your Loved Ones" and ordered the hand piecing acrylic templates for it.  Because as ...

Bursting My Buttons from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

Hello Everyone,
 
My buttons are bursting.....not from too much food over the Holidays.....but from the fact that I can finally tell you my Country Courthouse quilt is going to be featured in QuiltMania magazine this year!

I submitted a picture to the magazine last July, and I was notified in August that it was accepted for publication. 


The nerves set in immediately after acceptance, because I had to either have it quilted or do it myself.  I spoke with an award-winning professional quilter, Jill Schumacher, and she said this quilt should be completely stitched in the ditch ...

'Currant Pinwheels' in Simply Vintage! from Nestlings By Robin

Thank you all for sticking through 
some of the boring posts this past week
and here is your reward:)
 Here is the new issue of Simply Vintage
one of my Favorite publications!!
Inside you will find a sweet
red and green treat based on
this antique quilt below.
 This is Coxcombs and Currants which I own.
I thought I would try designing a 
smaller piece inspired by the quilt
but in a different colorway.
 These are some of my other 'go-to' 
colors; red, orange, black.
 I really like the small loop design within the leaves.
This one was all done ...

Ballet with Kaffe revisited (and the Peacock Party) from Wendy's Quilts and More

My poor Ballet with Kaffe quilt has been neglected for months.  Some many other tempting things have come along this year, so I put this one away and haven't done anything on it since February.



However, Quiltmania have just started advertising Willyne Hammerstein's fourth book, Millefiori Quilts 4 and that has spurred me into action.




Of course I want the new book, and I probably want to make quilts from it, so I really need to finish my Ballet with Kaffe from book 2. I've worked on it every night this week with no distractions.  That's ...

Marshal Mystery Quilt (and the Peacock Party) from Wendy's Quilts and More

It's a long time since I've talked about the Marshal Mystery Quilt, designed by Jen Kingwell.  The final layout has just been revealed at Houston (as shown below) and in Quiltmania magazine, so it's a good time to revisit my blocks and think about how I will proceed.


At this stage I think I'm going to come up with a different layout.  I can't say that I'm in love with the final layout, and I haven't come this far to join my blocks in a way that I don't love.   I very ...
