In Your Corner in AMERICAN PATCHWORK & QUILTING CALENDAR (2016)

454

Happy Monday, Friends!  I hope you are doing well, and are enjoying your Christmas season.  I have had much fun with my family getting ready for Christmas.  Our tree is up… and Miss Baby and I are trying to finish up a couple of Christmas ornaments for this year.

I am sharing with you my In Your Corner quilt that is featured in the May page of American Patchwork & Quilting 2016 Calender.

This quilt was actually made and turned in in 2014.  It’s so good to see the quilt again after all this time, with the actual calendar.

I used Quilting Treasures‘ Petals and Matrix fabrics to make the quilt.

If you recall, I have used these fabrics quite a bit in the quilts I designed and made.  We have the Plain & Fancy BOM quilt that ran in participating quilt shops in 2014.

Then, the free-to-use pattern featuring the five different colorways within the fabric line.

And you have seen one of my all-time favorite quilts, Calico Trail, also designed and made with Petals & Matrix fabrics.  Click here to see more pictures of the quilt.

Now, back to In Your Corner… the complete instructions to make the quilt is included with the booklet that comes with the Calendar.

And it is the perfect project if you are a HST fanatic, or want to practice making HST units. :)   You will get to construct HST in three different sizes.

The asymmetrical layout of the quilt gives the traditional Lady of the Lake block a fresh look. So, I quilted random straight lines in the quilt center, and finished off with informal swirly feathers.  The thread I used is Aurifil Mako 50 cotton over Hobbs Tuscany silk batting — this combination works for me EVERY time!

And I am supposed to have a quilt in the latest issue of Australian Quilters Companion (Issue 75), I think (!). Unfortunately I do not have any information.  If you do, would you pretty please email me?

Now, you know why my life has been crazy (just a little bit, haha!)… but enough about my very boring and uneventful life!  I am more interested in yours — how’s your week shaping up?  And… curious mind wants to know if you have a favorite from the quilts I have shared with you in this post.

Thank you for stopping by.  I am working a bird, swirl and star quilt that is very me — my three favorite quilty elements all appearing in one quilt! Can’t wait to be able to reveal the quilt to you!
