2006

This is a collection of traditional quilting patterns. Machine quilting done on these quilts are minimalistic mostly hand quilting and stitch in the ditch. I liked several of the quilts especially TURNING LEAVES-140 and the swirling star block in STARS AND STRIPES-164.  I am wondering why every time a book says they are making quilts from scraps the quilts look like they are totally coordinated.

BROKEN WHEELS
KANSAS DUGOUT
SEVERAL LOG CABIN VARIATIONS
FLORAL BLOCKS
SNOW BALLS

Many of the blocks were large composed of four quadrants and mirror images made from smaller patches.

  1. I gave a lecture on scrap organization and patterns last week. I told them my 3 top pet peeves and one of them is that all scrap quilt magazines look too coordinated and matchy-matchy.
