Hot Chili Peppers in THE QUILTER (January 2011)

For my chili-loving friends, here are some HOT CHILI PEPPERS for you!

This is a SUPER easy applique project (featured in The Quilter‘s January 2011) that would be a quick and easy to make gift if you are home-making your Christmas gifts this year… don’t you just love those vibrant colors on the chilies? The fabrics I used for the project is a combination of RJR‘s Pin Dots and Henry Glass‘ Summertime.

I used Hobbs‘ Tuscany Silk Batting, and Aurifil Mako 50 to quilt this banner.  The quilting was minimal for this project – I picked  and quilted on a few floral designs on the black background fabric.  I thought the background fabric spoke for itself, and didn’t need quilting to make it look better.

Go to if you are interested in purchasing a kit for the project.  My “ARMCHAIR QUILTER’S” SUGGESTION: Not interested in making the banner?  How about just making the individual blocks and frame them in separate frames for a visual statement?

Thanks for stopping by!  And, go and enjoy some chilies to spice up your new week!

  1. You have such a great eye for color, Wendy, and your fabric combinations are always so fresh and fun. That’s what really makes or breaks a “simple” project like this one. I never would have thought of using that big, black and white floral as the background, but I love how it makes the brights pop. Congratulations!

  2. Congrats for having a project in the magazine! It’s really cute, and would great in my kitchen/breakfast nook — my colors and I already have a print with hot sauces all over.

  3. I love the chili pepper project! Just today I was looking at my way too large of B&W fabrics and thinking I need to do something with them. This is perfect, especially for the southwest where I live. Thanks for sharingin.
