Early Sept 2011 – Summer recap


Thursday, September 1st, 2011

I have been off the blog for a while now. My travel schedule has been steady, and our summer was filled with family reunion, bathroom remodel at home, shipping, teaching, travel between engagements, and so on!

two fabrics for the Dancing African Ladies quilt

¬†I have gotten a couple of sewing projects completed. The first is a quilt design that originated with two fabrics (above). I created¬†the Dancing African Ladies¬†quilt ‚Äď and it is a featured pattern in my book, Quick Diamond Quilts and Beyond.

My son and his wife really like this quilt, and I wanted to make them a quilt using the same fabrics and diamond technique, but add a pre-printed panel from the Julia Cairns African collection (the fabrics are no longer for sale).

The¬†diamonds were oriented in a radiating star placement, slightly off-center, with the sunshine (in the panel) as the central radiating point. The pieced elements were completed, and the panel was appliqu√©d into the pieced diamonds. Here is the finished quilt ‚Äď machine quilted by Sylvia Fox.
