This week I finished up Aunt Brenda's Cruisin" Under The Stars quilt that she pieced at Quilt Camp 2016. Yes, it's now 2018, but that's okay. Usually quilts take some time, you know? The pattern uses Creative Grids Scrap Crazy 6" templates. You can read more about Quilt Camp 2016 and the patterns here. . . and here.
Above is what one pieced block looks like, but when you put them together, depending on the color values of the fabrics you use, they create a secondary pattern like the one below.
I quilted this one with silver gray thread and a pantograph design called Cascade. Very pretty, I think!
And now for some fun - here are pictures of all the 2016 Quilt Camp Quilts made by me, Mom, Aunt Sharon, Aunt Alice, and Aunt Brenda.
Thanks, Aunt Brenda, for letting me quilt for you!!
Isn't it wonderful to see the same quilts each made with our unique fabric selections? I'll be linking up over at Crazy Mom Quiltis Finish It Up Friday where you can visit for more quilting inspiration. Thanks for stopping by :-)
Isn't that Dutch Rose quilt block above beautiful? It's my favorite block in the quilt that I finished up on the longarm this week. My mom pieced the top following the Modern Sampler QAL (quilt-a-long) pattern that can be found at Elven Garden Quilts. Some of the gals down at the Little Foot Quilt Shoppe were working on this project. She didn't quite finish all of the blocks there, but the ones she did make fit together perfectly.
I quilted it with a pantograph called Daydream using cream colored thread.
Here are a few other close-up shots of some blocks.
I just love those blocks! They all seem pretty traditional for a "modern" sampler. I think maybe it's just the setting style of the blocks that is modern. Just above on the right side - there's that Cat's Cradle unit that inspired my little wall hanging a few weeks ago.
This quilt is being donated to a fundraiser to help a family in need in our church and community. So Mom is getting the binding on it this weekend. Way to go, Mom, and great job on the piecing!! (Great job rotary cutting, Dad :-)
I'll have to get something new on the quilt frame tomorrow. Hope you get some quilting in this weekend, too! I'll be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Thanks for visiting!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
