Strip Twist

Strip Twist Quilt

This eye catching Jelly Roll quilt made by Anna is called Strip Twist by GE Designs.  Anna has a fondness for leaves so we chose the pantograph Blowing in the Wind by Irene Steele which complemented the design, and a titanium coloured thread.  This quilt was a wedding gift for a friend.

Generosity is a network of invisible threads of kindness linking us together.

A quilt for Colleen’s Trailer

Turquoise and Rust Quilt

Colleen made this lovely turquoise and rust quilt for her weekend getaway – a little piece of land not too far away.  We choose the pantograph ‘Popcorn’ by Jodi Beamish and Rust thread to complete this pretty little quilt.

Cozy Cuddler

Cozy Flannel Quilt

Lynne made this flannel quilt for her mother whose health was failing.  It was a rush quilt job as Lynne wanted to send it off to her mom in the hospital to comfort her until Lynne was able to make the trip to be with her.  Unfortunately Lynne’s mom didn’t make it; Lynne is planning on making a new label and keeping the quilt in memory of her mom.

Black and White with a dash of colour

Black and White crazy patches

I’m working on a set of Crazy Patches using mostly black and white prints and decided each block needed a dash of colour so I’ve added a primary (or green) to each block.  I do have a bunch of these blocks made up however not quite enough for a quilt yet.  

Most of the fabric from these patches is from a gift (green garbage bag full of cottons) from my friend Nancy who used to own a Villa Factory, a well known clothing company in Calgary.  

My Inch by Inch quilt and the Inch by Inch Blue and White blocks have all come out of the same bag.

The November colours for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge are Blacks and Greys, click soscrappy to see what others are doing in blacks and greys this week.
