Tulips Quilt with Windham’s Flower Pedals

Happy Friday and Weekend, Friends!  I hope you have had a great week.   To close out this week, how about another free-to-use pattern that I had designed using Windham’s Flower Pedals fabric line?  This quilt was SO fun to design. It is also easy and quick to put together – perfect for a little girl’s bed!

The Tulips Quilt sample was displayed at Quilt Market in Houston last fall.  The fabrics are truly amazing!  You need to check with your local quilt shops to see if they are carrying the fabrics or the quilt kits!

Marabella in THE QUILTER (July 2010)

I decided to show my Marabella quilt for Amy’s Quilt Festival. It’s probably my favorite quilt among all the spring quilts I have made. I have made quite a few quilts since Marabella, but they are not back from the editors yet… so, Marabella it is.

Marabella is one of my latest featured quilts. Pattern for this quilt is found in the July 2010 issue of The Quilter.

The quilt is now displayed at Rogers Sewing Center.

This quilt turned out sooooo sweet! Red and purple make quite an eye-catching color combination, don’t they?

Here are some quilting close-ups for you. The quilting is done over Hobbs’ Tuscany Wool batt, and Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton thread (#2310 top and bottom) – one of my favorite “ingredient combination” when it comes to quilting on my home machine:

Fabrics are from Henry Glass‘ Marabella collection:

Thank you for stopping by. I am going to enjoy the rest of this spring season. I hope you are too!

Thanks for stopping by. Have fun admiring the other quilts featured in Amy’s Quilt Festival!

Marabella Sneak Peek #3

Good day, Friends. This week I was able to finish my Marabella quilt for The Quilter. I took some pictures before sending the quilt off to the editor. One final thing I did was to attach the ribbon bows onto the vases to add a little special something to the block:

This quilt is made with Henry Glass‘ Marabella fabrics. It will be featured in the July ’10 issue of The Quilter.

I did some “apple core” quilting after reading Diane Gaudynski’s post about it on her blog:

Some more quilting pictures here. I do all my quilting on my home machine, no long arm here:

I will show you the quilt in its entirety once the magazine hits the newsstand in May! Meanwhile, have a happy weekend! :) I will be busy working to meet yet another deadline…

Marabella Sneak Peek #2

Good day, Everyone.  I have been busy quilting my Marabella quilt.  I am almost finished at the time this post is written.  This quilt is scheduled for the July issue of The Quilter, if all things go well.  I hope they do. Here are a couple of sneak peeks:

I basically wanted to give a textured effect to the quilt as the fabrics are already quite busy:

Thank you for stopping by.  I wish you a productive day!
