With the days getting shorter, the quilts with scintillating colors seem to attract. Tonight we’d like to share a few that have recently been shared with us by our readers. The captions are in their own words.
from: Pat Suttmiller: “I made this quilt with an online group. It is from the Carol Doak book 50 fabulous paper pieced stars. I love using batiks and bright colors. Paper piecing is one of my favorite ways to quilt. I had someone longarm it for me. I had her put all of the states names in the sashing.”
from: Pat Reaid Sisler: “I love the easy technique for making this quilt! You actually make 2 blocks at once, As far as I know there is no published pattern. It was taught at a retreat in Ohio several years ago,”
from: Shauna Crosby Dickerson: “I made up this pattern using 5 inch square charm pack I bought. It has the most beautiful, bright fabric, some of them showing slices of oranges, limes, and lemons. I call it my “citrus quilt”.”
from: Patsy Cosby: “Another owl quilt i made, i do a lot of these.”
Thanks to everyone who has shared their work with our quilting community. Let’s bring in color and brighten up the late Fall days!
