Piecing Paisley

Pin It
I'm in the sewing room and working with the paisley fabric. Fabric picks

I've always thought about doing a contest piece and I think this will be a try ?



I use the "How to method"  - HERE




There will be a traditional pattern, but the rest, it's going to be me, not for a book, not for sell, not for anyone BUT me !



I need an all about me project, it's been a very long time.

Please notice, that NONE of these patterns, colors are textbook, but they work. ! !
It will be machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted. It will not be done tomorrow and that's alright, I need to start taking me time.... again!

Graduation Quilt from 2000

Pin It

Graduation Quilt from 2000
When both of our boys graduated from high school, I did a quilt for them to take to college. It was all the thing at the time, and may still be, to do a t-shirt quilt. To me, the boys needed my quilts.

Graduation Quilt from 2000, red, white and blue fabric

Son #2 graduated in 2000 and I found this great fabric.

The simple opposite block.

The quilt was machine pieced and long-arm quilted in spring 2000. It's the quilt they curl up under and watch television with still today !

"Crow Nest" is the name of this block.  It's a very old pattern. I changed the center block to color and placing the other fabrics not in a traditional way, that's what makes the block timeless.
