Greenhouse Quilt from Pieced Brain


I did say this week would be loaded with fun, right? Since this is the season of giving, how about another free pattern? This is "Greenhouse", my newest quilt pattern featuring the Island Breeze fabric collection designed by Chong-a Hwang for Timeless Treasures. My goal here is to help you dream of a trip to an island somewhere - is it working yet? :-)

Greenhouse measures 74" square (make it rectangular with another row) with 'window panes' allowing you to peek in the greenhouse and let your eyes feast on beautiful flowers. Here are some of the fabrics I used:

Patriot Inspiration from Gray Barn Designs

Thank you to the Veterans of the United States Military for your service to our country!

My quilt guild held a two day retreat this past weekend.  Since it was Veteran’s Day Weekend, I decided to finish tacking down the binding on my American Flag Quilt.

The flag in the quilt is actually a panel by Timeless Treasures Fabrics that I purchased at Red Rooster Quilts in Dublin, Ohio.  Red Rooster designed the quilt by adding a wide inner border of off white fabric and a wide outer border of Timeless Treasures blue & white stars.  The quilt is finished ...

Nobile measures 74-1/2" square using one block with two different fabric groups creating a quilt with an array of textures, colors, and richness reminiscent of the Italian region for which this collection was named.

Here are the fabrics I used on the design:







Aren't they gorgeous? Tonga Tuscany batiks' dreamy textures practically screamed to be used in a design that allowed the colors to shine. I am pleased with how this quilt turned out.

"Every Which Way" is my newest pattern published in two magazines simultaneously: Quilt Festival Quilt Scene and Modern Patchwork. It looks cool as they staged it, huh? It measures 66" x 92-1/2" and makes a very striking modern statement.

It was quilted by Sew Shabby Quilting with a circular motif, a perfect contrast to the linear pattern. The fabrics are from the Tonga New Java Blenders line by Timeless Treasures Fabrics:

This is my second pattern published in the book Log Cabin Variations by Annie's Publishing. It is called Albuquerque for its Southwestern look. The fabrics are from the Timeless Treasures New Java Blenders collection which has 25 beautiful colors. These are the ones I used:





Lucious, right? The marbled texture is amazing on the quilt blocks giving them depth and interest.

Quilting the Supernova Quilt from Curlicue Creations

 So, I quilted about half of the Supernova quilt last week.  I'm planning on finishing the quilting today.  I chose this Olde Golde King Tut thread from Superior Threads.  I really like the way it looks against all the bright colors of the Supernova quilt.

 Life has been a little crazy at my house for the past couple of weeks, so I'm just doing a stress-free all over loopy meander design.  Here's how it looks against the black in the border.

And here is how it looks over the pieced blocks.  I'm feeling a little guilty ...

Supernova Quilt ~ Block Three and Beyond from Curlicue Creations

 This is Block Three for the Supernova quilt.  I love it!  The drama of the bright batiks mixed with the black really packs a punch.

 I sewed four Block Three's for the Supernova quilt.

Here are all of the blocks sewn together.  Just lovely.  See how the light eminates from the center of the quilt?  It really draws the eye, and even though this quilt is a riot of bright colors, when I meditate on it, I get a calm, peaceful, happy feeling.  Do you feel it?

I'm currently working on the borders, and the quilting shall begin ...
