55 & Life to go…

55 & Life to Go…this 55”x 55” quilt is a re-creation of one of the first quilts I designed as a Moda fabric designer. I know 10 years doesn’t make an antique…but I couldn’t help myself….I wanted to see this design in red & white…

Now… I may have been jumping the gun just a bit…when I made the 45 & Life to Go quilt, I was going to be 45 years old…kind of a middle of life age…but what I thought was 10 years is not quite so I won’t looking at 55 for at least another year…by the time this fabric comes out…oh, well I think that happens when you make it this far…can’t remember everything…45 was made is two sizes..55″ and 110″  so if anyone wants a king size that is the pattern they need to get…just in case you are thinking that you want this on your bed!  I named this quilt because it has 45 star blocks in it…kind of like candles on a cake…but way better!

So…now almost 10 years later, ok not 10, but close enough …I have recreated this quilt in red & white…but I also have to admit..I did not actually stitch this quilt…Dawn Cornell, my friend pieced this for me…I cannot do them all…I know I want to, but it is just not possible…So I have some wonderful stitchers who can make some money making quilts for Primitive Gatherings…I did put the binding on!  I’ll talk more about the quilting in my quilting post of Redwork Quilts!..

These little stars are only 5″.  But strip piecing makes the centers possible in a snap!

Friday Quilting Giveaway!

 

Quilting giveaway hosted by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

This week’s quilting giveaway….

is going to be a FREE download.  I want everyone to know how special and vital you all are to the people in your life.  I sometimes think we forget about this.  So… know you are needed and if not now, someday will appreciated for all you do.  With that on my mind I want to give this quilt pattern called Red Tulip Basket to everyone today.

Quilting Giveaway featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa BongeanThis little baby measures 16 “x 18″.  It is sooooooo adorable…the size makes it so you have to look at it and and say…”How small are those pieces?”   Then add Linda’s beautiful quilting and your got yourself a little masterpiece. I know some of you can do this kind of quilting.. and some will do simple cross hatch quilting and it will look good too!  Needs to be about every half inch though….  I am hoping to see this done in some different color ways from some of you.  I myself, will probably make a couple of white tulip blocks.  Maybe a little 4 block quilt.  There are lots of possibilities with this little guy than what you see here….Quilting Giveaway featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa BongeanIf you have your 1/2″ finished Triangle papers you will be so happy.  I hate trying to trim blocks down to 1″.  But if you need 1/2″ Triangle papers we have them.  Remember they are in the small variety packs as well where you have 4 sizes in those.
