Laura has been with me since the beginning. She is always stretching me out of my comfort zone. I always love all of her projects. I think we collect the same fabrics and patterns. But she gets more completed than I do. :)
Anyway she sent these 3 and I just LOVE each and every one of them.
The first one I completed was “Modern Glam” I think this may be a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. ( not the name she gave it….I can’t remember what Laura said..sorry.) If it isn’t her pattern I know that Laura said she completed the back the way she did because she was inspired by Elizabeth Hartman. EH has a blog here .
Laura had mentioned that she thought her blocks resembled Christmas Trees…..so I quilted trunks on the bottom of each row of blocks. :)
Don’t you love the back?
I quilted Pebbles, pimentos ( Circles within circles) , swirls. In between each tree I quilted back and forth lines.
This second quilt is a Kaffe sampler. Laura fussy cut each snowball fabric …and every piece is a Kaffe print….I think I could make one of these ..well two. One with Amy Fabs and one with Kaffe fabs. I love this idea. I have so much old Amy that I have been collecting….it’s really a great away to showcase those lovely fabs.
Each block has 9 snowballs. In each set of 9 snowballs I quilted a flower, but each set of 9 has a specific flower. *LOVE*
Here’s the back:
The third quilt is called “Paperweight” if you google it as a quilt pattern you can find it. I quilted spider webs in the black stars…..and then each circle got it’s own treatment.
Here’s the back:
Love these quilts! It will be painful to send them back…they would all look so good in my collection…nobody would ever know? Would they?
Thanks Laura….Always a pleasure!
