|My Bulls Eyes Quilt in a recent bed-turning|
I've come across some interesting patterns and quilts -- none of which I have made, but all of which intrigue me with their own special qualities.
Not a hexie but I stumbled on this cute raggedy (raw edge) modern baby quilt. I often underestimate the time it takes to do just about anything these days, but doesn't this look like it would be a fast one? It's an instant download on Etsy and only five bucks! ...I'll be purchasing this "Sweetie Pie" pattern as soon as I finish writing my blog!
Sweetie Pie by Karen Griska Quilts
Bullseye Baby by Riley Blake is another sweet and colorful baby quilt with a whimsical scalloped border. Of course, you all know my obsession for 30s repro fabrics...so it stands to reason that I see this quilt a little larger made from my 30s stash! Tutorial here: Bullseye Baby
Moda Bake Shop has a tutorial for a modern quilt called Hexagon Park Quilt designed by a UK quilter/designer. Modifications of this pattern are also flying through my mind by using a "layered" hexi look.
|This layout will undoubtedly change a lot as the rest of the hexies are finished...but it gives me food for thought as I sit before it and sew. I may even present them more as a typical Dresdin Plate layout.|
********************Some photos from my recent bed turning at Tops Shelf Quilts in Frankfort. The photos were taken by my very talented and beautiful niece Brandace. I'd also like to thank Sandy and Dana for helping me by hoisting my quilts in the air for all to see!
|And we're off... Number one of a giant stack of quilts!|

Okay...enough already! Book 4 is calling =)
But before I leave, one more shameless shout-out for our Chicago Blackhawks who are 1-0 in the Stanley Cup Finals...GO HAWKS!
