I've been quilting regularly since about 2001, so where to start? Definitely not at the beginning. The blog started in 2010 and that seems like a much better place to start the show.
1. Seeing Stars
|Pattern by Amy Heaton, pattern available here|
This is the result of my first online quilt along. It was such a fun experience that I've done many more since. The pattern is available on Electric Quilt My EQ Boutique and if you look close at the catalog page you'll see this quilt in the inspiration section. More details here.
2. And Kiss Me Jack
Pattern by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolf
From the Book "Successful Scrap Quilts"
This is my quilt that almost wasn't. I hated the first 3 blocks so much they put it way for a few years and then I decided to finish it. I'm so glad I did. There's a purple and yellow flower known as Johnny Junp Ups, which includes a variety called Kiss Me Jack. That's where the name comes from. You can find a more detailed post here.
4. Pieces of a Rainbow
Pieces of a Rainbow, Pattern is Jigsaw by Alyssa Clancy for Lehmann Quilting
Of all the quilts I've made, this is my favorite. It was made for Drama Teen. The color placement isn't perfect, but she doesn't care. More about this one here.
And last but not least:
5. Flame Test
Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler, By Angela Feldbush of Soscrappy
Of all the Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts I've started over the years, this is the first one that's made it to the finish line. It's another of Drama Teen's favorites. More about it here.
That's it for my trunk show. I've made a lot of other quilts, but it appears my bright scrappy ones are the favorites from the lot. Hope you enjoyed this trunk show. You can see many more over at Whims and Fancies.
