A new year has begun and I am wondering what your plans
are for it? Any new BOM’s? New resolutions to maybe
finish the older BOMs hanging around? Those are my
I have begun working on customers’ quilts once again,
so that is not new. Over at Quilt Art Designs, Janeen
is starting a rather cute paper piecing BOM for this
year; entitled “Baby Animals.” You should check
it out. Next week, I may have pictures for you.
This is Anna’s quilt. I think it may have been a Mystery
Quilt that she participated in at a local quilt shop.
The pieced border looks great. What a great way to add some
drama to the top.
The following few photos show some of the varying
blocks in the quilt top.
Some of the blocks are very interesting. Color certainly
adds another dimension to the quilt.
Anna chose a grey polyester thread for the top and the backing.
The backing always looks so different from the front.
A close up of the design that Anna chose. It is
called “Starlets” by Lisa Calle.
Anne made this bright quilt. I love all the red colors in it.
Because the colors are so vibrant, she chose a vibrant red
polyester thread for top and backing.
“Swirls” was chosen for its simple design. Why stitch in a
complex design when you won’t see it anyways?
I love the red/orange color of the backing. It blends well
with the front of the quilt too.
You can see some of the design on the back of the quilt.
This beauty is Eleanor’s quilt. I love the aqua blue and
dark chocolate color combination.
Eleanor chose “Swirls” as well, very simple yet classy.
Eleanor chose a light aqua blue polyester thread for the
top and the backing.
The swirls add some movement to the quilt without taking
away from all the piecing.
The backing consisted of a white on white tone fabric.
The blue thread shows up nicely.
One thing I really like about my job is the fact that I get to
see what others are working on. There is alot of talent out
there so don’t be afraid to show others what you can do.
Have a great week, thanks for stopping by and check out this
