It’s day 3 of a glimpse through the projects in my book. I hope you are all enjoying this tour and a chance to see the quilts I’ve designed based off of one basic block, the quarter circle curve. I have so enjoyed being able to share them with you a bit at a time. And I know how important it is to see what is in the book before you buy it. Plus it’s just kind of fun to look at pretty quilts. 😉
I’m sharing another 3 projects today from the book. And again there will be an opportunity to win a copy of the book and more prizes…just to celebrate! I hope you’ll continue join me each day to see the quilts and hopefully be inspired to start sewing some curves.
Today, first I want to show you what is perhaps my favorite quilt in the book, Butterflies. I probably shouldn’t have a favorite, but some quilts just touch you more than others.
I love the combination of whimsy and function in this quilt. There are three sizes of butterflies that wind and fly their way across the quilt. It is one of the other beautiful quilts that Krista Withers quilted and she did a truly amazing job on this one. This is one of those quilts that I am never letting go of.
This pattern easily emerges when you start playing with curves and squares. I chose a bold color scheme for the book quilt and graphic modern flowers. But there are really so many options with this design. You could easily take one stem and leaf and continue it in a long length, creating a table runner. The leaves need not be green but think soft pastel colors on a white background. Can you tell that I want to make this one again and again? Always a good thing with your own designs!
