Once upon a time there was a quilter who used patterns to make quilts. That would be me, once upon a time. While I continue to enjoy coming up with a quirky improvisational design of my own, I hold dear some quilt patterns - for instance, here's a work in progress inspired by a Valori Wells pattern in Quilt Mania Magazine, January-February 2015 issue. I have two - or maybe three more flying geese borders to add.....
And, yes, those are fold wrinkles you see in this work in progress. I was digging around for projects to take to an upcoming quilters' retreat and stumbled upon this bag. Now that I've pinned it up on the design wall, I'll get it finished!
And here is an idea I have for a modern quilt inspired by those flying geese.
And while gathering quilts for my half-rectangle triangle program to locals last week, I re-discovered this quilt I made last year....from a pattern designed by Stephanie Prescott, also out of Quilt Mania, same issue.
Oh, and there are several more in there that I hope to get to one day. And very interesting pictures and story line featuring quilter and quilt historian, Barbara Brackman. Oh, so much inspiration.
Quilt Magazines and quilt patterns - now, those are good things.....
And a happy Sunday morning to you too.
