Remember all those drawers of fabrics from the last post a thousand years ago?? Time to show the vast array of quilts that have come out of that stash over the years.
THE FIRST is a very recent one, which started out to be a repeat of the Lithgow quilt. Here it is in the preliminary stages on the wall in my studio.
I decided I wanted to mix things up, and have a rectangular quilt, so here is the finished top.
I love to make these quilts that have thousands of colors and prints, and then I find that I have created a mess for myself when figuring out which color quilting thread to use. On busy quilts like this, multi thread makes things look even more chaotic. Don’t know how this one will turn out yet.
THE SECOND is also relatively recent, and is a pattern that I use over and over when I just want to sew without a lot of complicated planning. It is also the design I choose when I fall in love with a fabric that I know will make a wonderful border, and the quilt is built from the outside in.
Same design, now for Christmas.
And a huge one–so simple and so much fun.
