Out of the Blues: Nancy Mahoney designed an incredible big block quilt from two different 16″ blocks and colored it blue and white. Blocks made of a range of dark to light blue batiks give it a stunning look on any bed.
Nature’s Best: Ever wonder what you can do with all those wonderful landscape fabrics, other than make a landscape quilt? Patti Carey created an intriguing two-block quilt design and made it using landscape fabrics. Look at it closer and you see the grass, trees and brick walls. Unique!
Convergence: This is the perfect quilt for color lovers! Wendy combined her block with a pinwheel-themed block to create this cheerful design. Play with color while making this delightful two-block design.
Seeing Red: Quiltmaker Graphic Designer Denise Starck used Abigail Dolinger’s 100 Blocks design to create a unique full size pieced quilt with lots of color options. The fabric color and design of this quilt showcase the clean line and detail of the pattern. We chose red to bring out the geometric shapes against a neutral background of tan, gray and black. However, it would be really fun to see it scrappy.
Celestial Fracture: Color can explode in this design by Patty Clayton. Foundation piecing brings the points of the primary stars together in a unique way and then they move into a secondary starburst. The secondary stars are created with sashing foundations.
Happy Garden: Get ready for next spring or give yourself the brilliance of springtime during the winter with this table topper full of bright and happy colors. A perfect quilt for a wall or table top, this scrappy quilt designed by Paula Stoddard is sure to make you smile down to its sunny windmill center. Use your stash to make this pieced quilt as scrappy as Paula’s or with a planned color way.
Kaleidoscope Crystals: There are so many aspects of this quilt that make it unique! Designer Yolanda Fundora created foundation pieced sections to give a quilter all sorts of options for placing geometric shapes into blocks for a variety of fascinating configurations. This full size quilt looks complicated, but it’s actually a very straightforward and easy pattern for a confident beginner. This is a pattern that can be used so many times; creating a different quilt every time.
