I have 3 of my 6 new
Pattern writing is such a long process...
thanks so much for being patient with me :)
I hope to get the remaining 3
completed in a week or so.
Here are some photos in
no particular order of my 3 new patterns....
I hope you like them:)
I couldn't resist making another cherry quilt.
A girl can never have too many
if you are a cherry lover like I am:)
I made this quilt for my kitchen table...
it's the perfect size and is fun to
piece using my Easy Corner Triangle method.
I also think it would be fun to make a
larger quilt by simply making more blocks.
I made the Cherry Bake runner using the
leftover 2 1/2" strips from piecing
the alternate blocks in the quilt.
And of course...a cherry pillow!
You know how I love tulips too!
I put my Thimble Ruler to work and used the large one
to make the pots for this quilt.
The leaves and tulips are also pieced
using my Easy Corner Triangle method.
I wanted to show off the tulip pots
so I designed a simple sashing of 3" squares.
My friend Sherri pieced this one for me.
I simply ran out of time and so I
sent her a completed tulip pot block...
my Thimble Rulers...
all of my cut pieces and my drawing for the quilt.
She promptly pieced the rest and sent it back
to me just in time to get it quilted and bound for market.
I also had to make some pillows!
(i heart pillows too)
3 Tulips in a row.
I used my small Thimble Ruler
for the pots on the pillow:)
"Mixing it Up!"
With each collection I always like to
design a quilt with
a favorite vintagey item.
Of course with Bake Sale being
the theme of my latest...
a vintage mixer quilt is
a must for every
vintage girl's kitchen:)
They are mixing up some yummy cakes and cookies...
and there are several
cute spatula's to scrape the sides of the bowl.
I designed the "beater blocks" for the border to
look like the beaters twirling
into the batter.
We always fought over who got to
lick the beater when I was a girl:)
The beater blocks are fun and addicting to make.
I have a quick and easy method for making them...
I want to make a whole quilt just with these blocks!
But for now...
I added a beater block table runner
into the pattern
as well as my Patchwork Cookie Jar Cozy.
you need a cute jar for your homemade cookies
that you made with your vintage mixer ...right?
I bought the jar at Walmart.
It's a 1 gallon size.
to get one for your cookies:)
All 3 of my new patterns are now listed in my etsy shop...
Thanks you so much for the overwhelming response to my new quilty barn block.
I'll have the tutorial up on Wednesday.
Have a great weekend and a quilty kind of day!
