Today I thought I would share a few quilts that I have been working on over the past four months. I finally got the binding sewed on and some pictures taken. They are all from the pattern Simple Sixties. I’ve been stashing large scale prints for a while and this pattern is perfect for showing on those beautiful prints!
Here’s the first color option – It’s the same layout as the quilt in the lower right hand corner of the pattern.
The fabrics are from several different lines. The pattern only takes 10 fat quarters, so I used a few odds-n-ends to make this quilt.
Here’s the close-up of the prints and my simple quilting design –
The second quilt I’ve finished is in the upper left corner of the pattern front. For my color option, I’ve used mostly prints designed by Amy Butler, with a few others thrown in. The pattern only requires 6 colored fat quarters, but I used more for a scrappier look.
Look how many leaves are on the group already in Minnesota. Remember my last post . . something about good-bye summer?
Well, HELLO fall!
Here’s the close-up of the prints and machine quilting –
And lastly, another version of my Beach Balls design, shown in the lower left hand corner of the pattern front.
I had so much fun quilting the feathers into this one. They were really simple to do and I didn’t even have to mark the design. I typically do a feather design like this on the border of a quilt and have to mark it before I stitch it. With this quilt, I just followed the shape already established by the white fabric. Easy Peasy!
I hope all these color options have put you in the mood to try some color options of your own. Head on over to the Moda Fabric Matcher where Moda is hosting a contest featuring 5 of my designs. It’s your chance to come up with your own color combination using their wonderful fabrics. Click hereto see my designs that are featured. At the end of the month a favorite design will be chosen and will be rewarded with some fun prizes, including Moda fabric and a collection of autographed books from me. So, hurry over, get busy, and share some fun color combinations with me!!!! (and a few others).
Can’t wait to see what you all come up with ;- )
