Where’s The Block?

I had a hard time “seeing” the block on this quilt when I first saw a picture of it. It is just a matter of value.

Karen used the old drunkards path block, reversing the values for the inner curve, to create a modern, lovely quilt for her granddaughter.

Quilted using Ocean Froth pantograph with light aqua thread.

Karen found the perfect backing fabric at a local longarm quilter’s shop called Offquilter.

Zigzag Quilt

I’ve been making quilts for teenage grandchildren. This one was for a graduating senior, Sara.

There are two methods of making a zigzag quilt-half square triangles and rectangles. I choose the rectangle method but there was a lot of stretch in the finished top. So next time I’ll try half square triangles.

Feather Fancy is the pantograph.

Modern Quilt

This was a Connecting Threads quilt kit I bought around Christmas 2016 when they were having a clearance.

It was easy to piece. The fabrics had a nice hand and the directions were clear.

I was concern that a pantograph would detract from the strong geometric design but I didn’t have time for custom quilting. So I chose the only modern pantograph I have, Bauhaus, and medium light grey thread. It worked!

I used leftovers and some grey and blue fabrics from my stash.

I’m sorry to say I won’t be able to post anymore pictures of the Florida Quilt Show because I had to wipe out my phone and start over. Hopefully I will find another show on my travels this spring and summer.

Thanks for stopping by.
