We have some pretty great quilts to share with you today.
The first is one we made here at the shop from an Atkinson Designs pattern called Hexie Garden. The fabrics are from a mix of collections in colors we love and thought would celebrate spring. These hexies do not, I repeat, do not requre Y seams. If you are asking yourself, "what is a Y seam", just know that by not having one the piecing is a lot easier.
Piece by Piece Chris brought in her 100 block quilt to show today.
It kind of looks like a black and white photograph doesn't it? She limited her palette to black, white and gray which made for a dramatic effect. The pattern is from Tula Pink's 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book. I think we may have talked Chris into a bright red and white fabric for the back today. Awesome!
I've posted pictures of Sheri's table runners here before and she has done it again. She is having a good time with both the improvisational style piecing and free motion quilting.
Linda, who is one of our favorite regulars, has been on a mission to learn as many different techniques as she can. She moves through her quilts rapidly mastering one shape after another. This one is the Lotus pattern with "beachy" fabrics and the second is a tumbler quilt in batiks. Hex and triangles - check. Tumblers - check.
You have probably seen the cool pattern we have on display called Cranberry Chutney. But I bet you haven't seen it in "My Graddaughter Loves Pink and Green" - like Wendy's.
Melinda took a little different route for her grandbaby's quilt. I think this is a great use of a panel and border print. So sweet, but not too sugary.
And finally for today is Marion's Cog and Wheel quilt. Now, why haven't I made this one yet?
Please don't forget about our auction. We are auctioning off some store samples, with half of the proceeds donated to FOOD for Lane County. There are some awesome quilts here. You can read about it here and see each one individually (and of course in the shop).
