You Don't Know Until you Try! from Humble Quilts






My thought was to have something similar in the center of my bird sampler quilt. 
Odd shapes are always difficult for me to paper piece. 

I persevered and actually thought it looked pretty good. 

I cut the pattern out for the center

It wasn't perfect, but it was good enough. 

Then I printed the frame pattern, made templates,  and sewed them together  and the plan was to applique it to the top of the block.  I knew it was the moment of truth.....

It started out pretty good....

Uh, but went south pretty fast! lol

I thought I pressed ...

Triangle Medallion - Island Batik Ambassador December Challenge from Creatin' in the Sticks

  The December Challenge for the Island Batik Ambassadors is
"Medallion Quilt"
and
today I am excited to share my quilt
Triangle Medallion.


We are to make a medallion quilt which is all about a center block and borders
using
Island Batik fabrics.


I went in a different direction and may have stretched the challenge a bit.
I took my inspiration from an article in the Fall of 1995 magazine, Quilt, called Corn and Beans.
At first glance, the quilt in the article looked like a medallion quilt made of half-square triangles set on point.  After reading I learned the quilt ...

Medallion Quilt, A Quilty Finish, Jenny Wren, Free Patterns, from Canadian Needle Nana

 One of the things I love this week was getting a photo of a wren. I've often caught sight of them down by the pond because I think they like the heavy shrubbery on three sides. There is a meadow there as well and loads of grasshoppers which I know wrens are fond of. However, it was right in front of my kitchen window that I managed to grab two quick shots of this little guy while he was checking out the decaying plants.



 In the third shot I took he was a complete blur.

This was my redworked ...

Round Robin Medallions 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I love this design … it only needs some very simple quilting to make it just the way I would like it to be.

I like this one too, though I am in the process of redrawing some of the blocks for accuracy, and would probably freshen up the gree, but not by much!

Anns Album 67, 68 from Virtual Quilter

Lovely, neat design.

Interesting!

I am thinking of changing the fabrics in this project file … there are a lot of designs remaining, but the fabric choices lack interest.

I think I would freshen up the greens, and add some brighter flowery colours.

Any suggestions?

Love it!

Also love the second design.

The cat prefers the second, but I refuse to play favourites with these two.

NEW PATTERN Fig Leaf and Flowers from Collector with a Needle


Pattern Cover
We are pleased to announce our new appliqué quilt pattern, Fig Leaf and Flowers.

The pattern is a reproduction of a 19th century quilt quilt in our collection.   The quilt finishes at 80" square.  The original quilt is not perfectly aligned by today's standards - but the pattern is!  The outer edge has a bit of a wave - the pattern does not.

For now, it is a digital download only, available on the pattern page here and on our Etsy shop.  It is designed to print on your home printer - no enlargements needed.  The full size pattern includes ...
