Lofty Quilt - One Just For Me

Not often, but every once in awhile I make a quilt just for me. And from the very beginning, I knew I wanted to keep this quilt.

I started working on this quilt last fall, after finding some of the fabrics at the Garden of Quilts event.

I took awhile on the fabric selection (more on that in a minute) and then got the top pieced pretty quickly. Then it took a bit for me to get around to quilting it. When I have other quilts with deadlines then my own quilts have to wait in line for their turn on the longarm.

Star Trails Quilt Pattern the Scrappy Version

 I've been sewing with scraps lately, and loving it. I'm determined to greatly reduce the number of scraps in my bins. I've been saving scraps for years and right now some of the bins are filled to bursting and just can't hold more!

This quilt is a scrappy version of the Star Trails pattern

Star Trails has two construction methods to choose from: speedy strip pieced, or scrappy. Both are really fun, and take less time than you'd think.  

(See another version of Star Trails here)

U-Pick Quilt + A New Book By Pat Sloan

Hello everyone! And welcome to those new friends that may be stopping by for the first time! 

Today I get to share a project I made from a new book by Pat Sloan called, Tantalizing Table Toppers

U Pick quilt made by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner

The pattern I used is called U-Pick and it makes a 45.5" x 45.5" table topper. However...that happens to be a great size for a baby quilt so mine will be used for that purpose!

I get to share TWO new things with you today - a new pattern and some fun, new fabrics!

Star Trails quilt pattern by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner

Meet my newest pattern: Star Trails. This one is fun because you have a lot of options! 

For fabrics you can use:
  • fat quarters 
  • pre-cut 2-1/2" strips (Rolie Polie / Jelly Roll)
  • yardage (1/4 yard cuts)
  • or even scraps...yes it makes a great scrap buster quilt!

The pattern includes two sizes, and you have TWO options for constructing the pieced rows - quick strip piecing or foundation piecing. But more on that in a minute....

Lucky Duck Quilt in Hopscotch and Freckles Fabrics

 Today I get to share a Lucky Duck quilt that I finished up this week. 

The gray days of winter really get to me so it's always a delight to work with brighter, cheerful colors and fabrics this time of year. And another plus is to be able to whip up a quilt pretty quickly and get the satisfaction that comes from FINISHING something. You know what I mean!

For this Lucky Duck quilt I used fat quarters from a new fabric line from Poppie Cotton called Hopscotch and Freckles

I selected just the reds and blues from the line. The text print, and the small florals are my favorite, but the little strawberries are a close third!

Dinner Party Quilt in Cozy Up Fabrics

 I have a problem with Layer Cakes (a.k.a. precut 10" squares). My problem is that I love to buy them but often can't decide what to make with them. So they sit there.

I even have a cute bin to "display" these Layer Cakes. But really...I'd rather put them to good use and sew them up into a quilt!

So my goal for the past couple of years has been to focus on designing patterns that specifically use those pretty 10" squares that we all love.
