Hello March! Since it's National Quilting Month I decided to share some of my recent finishes and celebrate the amazing long arm quilters who make my quilts look awesome. **Warning, photo heavy.
This is Baker's Acres, started a few years ago. Made using a FQ Stack of Willow by Alexander Henry and a jelly roll of Kona Solids, it just kept getting more cheerful and fun to work on.
Shelly Pagliai of Prairie Moon Quilts has done many of my quilts. She gets me just by looking at my quilts. I send them to her and tell her to let them speak to her.
Love her quirk and attention to detail.
I love patchy backs so I combined Alexander Henry's Farmdale with some olive corduroy, all from my stash.
Striped binding? Yes, please.
A new to me quilter is Laura Davies of Tanderwen Quilts. Carrie at A Passion for Applique has shared many wonderful quilts Laura has done for her. I've admired Laura's work.
Laura quilted Amish Buggy Wheels using a fun all over design.
I love how the quilting doesn't overshadow the quilt design. Laura puts time and thought into her work and shares ideas before she gets quilting.
The center of my Amish Buggy Wheels are cut from a vintage quilt top. I "designed" or did the math, to continue the feel of the old quilt. The dots are Avant Garden by MoMo for Moda.
Love this fabric.
This is Long John James, a larger version I made of my Long Johns quilt. My son is James, he is tall, we have great childhood memories of pirates. It all makes sense to us. Arrr!
I love the geometric manly quilting design Laura did on this one. I combined flannel and corduroy for a very warm and cozy quilt. The prints are flannel called Quilter's Candy Flannel Neutral Sampler by Connecting Threads. I love their flannel! There are some flannel solids as well but the majority of the solids are corduroy.
I love the richness of these colors. So I give thanks to the wonderful quilter's of the world. You're awesome! I'll be back, one day, to share more finished quilts...once I get the bindings done.
