I’m in a quilting mood lately. I have ideas swimming in my head and a couple of projects on the go. It has made me keen to dig out some of my unfinished quilt tops and get them ready to quilt! So I thought for today’s Four for Friday I thought I’d share some of my favourite patchwork and quilting posts from the blog archives. Click on the quilt names or pictures to read more about each quilt.
This is my all time favourite quilt I think. It was made for a very special little boy when he was a baby because his mum is one of my favourite people in the world. It was made from a book called Two from One Jelly Roll Quilts. (Affiliate link)
I made this quilt to teach a class at Creative Craft Retreat. It is so fresh and crisp that each time I see it, it makes me smile. The simple triangles were quick to chain piece and I love the striped binding.
I call this my Tula Pink Quilt because the fabric is by a designer named Tula Pink and it may have been the first time I found a range of fabric that I just had to have, even though it is not quite my usual style. This quilt is still unfinished in my stash, waiting for me to quilt it.
This quilt lives on my son’s bed. It is an “I Spy” quilt with lots of bright fabrics showing all kinds of different things – animals, stars, musical instruments and flowers! I collected the fabrics when I was pregnant with my fist child and made a play mat out of them The leftovers became this quilt a few years later. There is a tutorial for this quilt too.
