It’s always nice to see a quilt in-progress and to see one that’s made from some new techniques or a combination of techniques. This very impressive and beautiful top was made by Robyn Phelps. It’s the “Hop to It” pattern by Edyta Sitar. Ms. Sitar’s book Hop to It! Appliqued Blocks and Projects shows readers how to use various applique techniques. We can see how stunning the finished product is thanks to Robyn. We’ll look forward, too, to seeing it after it is quilted.
While this may seem like a simple quilt, we’d like to suggest you look much closer. It was shared with us by Leann McClain who writes,
“Jeansand an Old Shirt”, my latest quilt sewn for a charity auction coming up. The plaid shirting and blue jeans made this quilt seem western to me, so I placed embroidered jeans all around the outside and center block. This was fun!“
If you look, you can see wonderful embroidery all around the border as well as a guitar and horse in the center. Combining denim and the plaid shirting clearly beckoned for the use of orange and some interesting deep pink for accents. It is an entrancing work and we hope it brings nice bids at the auction!
Patricia Ogden posted photos of two absolutely darling wall-hangings. Both show a delightful and cheerful baby; this is the little boy. Patricia makes them for friends who have babies. We can tell they bring smiles!
Thanks to everyone who has shared photos of the quilts with our quilting community at 24 Blocks! Happy Quilting!
