These are 2 quilts that belong to Dale. She has been a busy lady, completing these 2 large quilts.
She took a class at a local quilt shop and these are the results.
The colors on this quilt are very rich looking. There are 2 different types of pieced
blocks within this quilt top.
Each “Star block” is different in the center than the others. It may look like
I am showing the same block repeatedly but if you take a closer look at the center
of the block, you will see that it is pieced differently each time.
In this example, there is a 16 patch block.
In this block, it looks like a combination of a half square triangle and
a four patch. The outer star is the same throughout each block.
I am unsure of the block name but here it almost looks like a cross with
4 outer half square triangles.
A pinwheel is used in the center of the block this time. The outer border can also
be seen as well.
This inner section almost looks like a Churn Dash.
Again, a 4 patch and another cross.
Spools are used in the center this time.
A star within a star for the center section.
Another cross with half square triangles.
I think this is a Rail Fence. As you can see, Dale chose a
panto for the quilting design. A cream polyester thread was used for the
top and the backing as well.
An interesting inner block.
Half square triangles on the inside. What an interesting idea! Change up all
the pieced sections and use the same fabric for the whole top.
This shows the other block that was pieced on the top. Straight lines add
another dimension to the top.
I missed one block on the top. It is a Friendship Star, I think.
Here are the borders. They are pretty neat as well.
This is what the back looks like. Again, you can turn the top
over if you want a different looking quilt.
This is Dale’s second quilt. I am amazed that a whole new design and pattern
can be made from a single block. Can you pick it out?
A half square triangle is the block. If you rotate it, it creates a spinning star design.
A view of the side. Dale chose a panto for this quilt as well. There are
alot of pieces so the panto design looks great. I again used a cream
polyester thread for the top and backing.
You will notice though, that some of the center of the blocks have a solid square
of fabric. This helps to create the design as well.
Same design but different colors.
The outside borders are very pretty in color and match the rest of the quilt
Here is a better shot of the outer borders.
The cream backing for the quilt. Again, you could turn it over
for the look of a whole new quilt top.
I hope that you are enjoying your summer. I have managed to finish
another fabric postcard. I will have pictures for you next week.
