I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last posted one of my Design Sheets – the time went really fast! I’ve been super busy with non-quilting related activities. First was an organized bicycle ride, the Mickelson Trail Trek, which hubby and I have done for the last four years. Beautiful scenery, well organized ride by S.D. Game Fish & Parks, and fun friends to share it with – this is one of my favorite annual rides.
I’m so excited as I have many new quilting designs to share with you! The Crowning Glory patterns I referred to in my last post are now available through Intelligent Quilting and Legacy Quilting. You can see just a few of them above. I hope you’ll go take a look, and if you purchase any of these, PLEASE take some photos of them stitched out on your quilt – I’d love to see them. (And save those photos, as they may just win you some free quilting designs down the road – more on that at a later date!)
A few years ago I designed a quilt called ‘Bricklayer’. I made it out of ‘brick’ reds, browns, and creams, and the design reminded me of the brick home I grew up in, hence it’s name. It was a great masculine quilt. It’s sometimes hard to find quilt patterns for men. I made kits and sold patterns, but I never marketed it much as I always had in the back of my mind that this would be really cute in a smaller version for a baby quilt as well.
Today I finished up quilting a T-shirt quilt, with the pantograph “Square Spiral”. I love this pattern for adding texture to quilts, and it works well on masculine quilts too.
I also started a new piecing project. I’m working on a new pattern – I actually designed this one a few years ago, and published it as a lap quilt. But I’ve always wanted to offer it as a baby quilt as well.
