Saturday Snapshots more quilt projects
Last week I showed some of the projects that my friends worked on at our retreat a few weeks ago. This is a pillow top I finished using a free pattern called Scattered Squares. It uses 2.5 inch squares usually sold together in units called Mini Charms. These reds were an exchange with one of the guild members. I haven't quilted it yet, but will do it with perle cotton in a diagonal big stitch.
One of our other members made Scattered Squares too. This one in peach and greens was really lovely.
And this one using batiks in shade of blue, aqua and pink
This quilt is made from a printed panel. That is the part with the pumpkin, cat and angel. Then the borders and squares are added around the side and bottom. There will be a larger border in shade of purple around all four sides. The pattern is called Sidelights and I bought the kit while we were in Phoenix in for Christmas 2011. It was from a shop in Chandler AZ and I cannot remember the name of it. I really must start a travel journal, my memory is getting so bad.
Finally is a quilt top pieced of homespun plaids from a pattern called Smokey Mountain Star. It is a free pattern at Bonnie Hunter's blog, Quiltville's Quips and Snips. It is really amazing and what a great use of scraps.
Next week I will feature the rest of the amazing projects we finished, then I will not bore you again til next year.
