QUILT INFO

I used an Electric Quilt applique design and modified it slightly to make this basket block.

Noah and Matilda Update

Time for a Noah and Matilda update.  The quilt project got set to the side when I started on Christmas gift making and got into full swing.  Time now to get back to it.  I did the machine stitching on two more blocks.





And to get a feel as to how they will all play together.


I may do the cactus block  again with a different placement of greens.  The reason I want to make a change is I think it is a little boring the way it looks now.

Dawn still has the patterns available here.  The block designs are from an antique quilt and those type fabrics would be a good choice.  I decided to go with a more prim style look for something different.  Many of the fabrics are from Kansas Troubles lines with a few other pieces tossed into the mix.  If you would like to see what others are using for fabric choices, look here.

I am doing some embroidery.  Back to stitching.

  4. Your interpretation looks quite different from the original.....I love them both. Just interesting to see how the fabric changes the whole feel of the quilt.

  5. I like the prim feel of your version. I recognize your KT background fabric. And I love the reddish plaid you have used in many blocks.

  9. Gosh I just love those plaids. Have fun.

  10. Yes, I love the plaids too. Maybe instead of changing the whole cactus, just brighten the yellow blooms or leave as is,it looks fantastic.

  14. Love seeing the blocks done in these prim fabrics. They're gorgeous! I'd like to think I'm brave enough to try something other than fabrics similar to the original quilt, but I'm not so sure. You're making great progress on the blocks. So far, mine are only printed patterns in a folder. Maybe this year I'll tackle them.
