Houndstooth Quilt and Pattern!

The binding is done, photos taken, and the pattern is hot off the presses! No, I didn't start this quilt after I finished the Honeycomb quilt! Haha! (But it does go fast.) They were done simultaneously. It takes forever to write the patterns because I proofread them over and over to make sure there aren't any mistakes.

This quilt is 61" x 82." It goes together so fast, you will love this method!!

Machine quilting by Linda Aquavia of New Hartford, CT. I like the overall stippling.

Once again, if you Pin, would you please Pin this for me? Thanks.

Honeycomb Quilt and Pattern are Finished!

The Honeycomb quilt is finished! And the pattern is too! I love how this quilt came out; it has a light and airy, modern look. The border is subdued so as not to distract from the honeycombs. If you're a Pinner, I'd appreciate a Pin. Thanks.

Portrait Quilt

Look at this wonderful portrait quilt by Melissa at Yummy Goods! Her blog is so much fun to visit!
She is a longarm quilter and a fabric designer for Andover Fabrics. She lives on Cape Cod. And Melissa likes pie. We could be friends. :)

New Honeycomb Quilt!

The Honeycomb quilt is finished! I'm putting the finishing touches on the pattern and photos now. Stay tuned! I love how this turned out. The light background gives an airy modern look. There's a little black in there too, just for fun. Big variety of fabrics, both old and new.

Are You in Boston Today?

Visit the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to see the Pilgrim Roy quilt collection. I visited yesterday and the exhibit was wonderful. Today is the last day. Also, if you go to the museum Cafe, I recommend the Honey Cake. It has blueberries, lime sauce, and whipped cream. Yum!

The entire exhibit is pictured in the book: Quilts and Color. The photos are very good. 

This familiar quilt was part of the exhibit. It's a pineapple/windmill blades log cabin. The rooms had low lighting and the spotlights made the quilts glow. So beautiful!

After the Wedding - A Raw-Edge Broderie Perse Quilt!

"After the Wedding" by Debby Schnable, made with raw-edge applique, and embellished with lace, broderie perse, and embroidery. Amazing!

Debbie tells about this quilt on her blog: Debby Quilts. She says they're fun to make (she's made several), and they hold up well with washing too! She calls this "After the Wedding" because it's kind of messy. Ha!

Next, take a look at another double wedding quilt by Debby, "Jewel Tone." This one was featured on the Quilt Inspiration blog. I love the broderie perse in these quilts!
