In Progress :: Samples

 Here is what we are working on at my shop.

Winter/Christmas Quilt In Progress

This is the center of the quilt. We still need to sew the blocks together then figure out borders and such. This quilt uses the new Woodland Winter collection we just received recently. We want to incorporate the side borders from the panel somehow, but haven't quite figured out exactly what we want to do with them.

Next is a new pattern I just ordered called Starlets. It is a great pattern from Modernly Morgan, but I decided to make it up in traditional style fabrics instead of my usual bright, modern style fabrics.

Most of the fabrics I am using are from the new collection by Julie Letvin from Robert Kaufman called 6th Street Cottons. I also pulled one or two fabrics from her previous collection, Homestead Harvest.

This is a really great pattern! There are diagrams for how to cut out your pieces and clear photos in the piecing section. The pattern has information for 4 sizes of quilt from Baby size (which is the size I am making) up to Queen size. If you follow the pattern then you need yardage for the stars because those are all the same fabrics, but you could easily make scrappy stars instead. All of the rest of the fabrics are fat quarters so it's a perfect pattern for that fat quarter bundle you bought without a plan.
