Preview 62

Just for fun we play with more of the ever popular chevrons.  The large panels are a chance to show off a great theme fabric, like this fabulous Novella by Valori Wells.

This 60"x 75" throw uses 2 1/2 yd of the Theme,  3/4 yard each of 2 fabrics for the Chevrons, and 1 1/4 yd for the little Sashing and Binding.

I needed a special new 2 1/2" strip pattern for the OH-MI shop hop this March.  PARADISE looks very good on its side, so why not try it.  Basically I turned the blocks and put them back to back, which created a zig-zag effect.  WISTFUL was born. 

Additional fabrics needed are 1 1/2 yd for the Background and 5/8 for Binding.  It finishes 57"x 72".

Pre-cut all of the pieces and then it is sew-n-go for a nice contemporary look.  I wonder how it might look in solids...

Mother-Daughter Weekend with EUREKA

Jenna Cross in Hilliard Ohio made her first quilt last weekend!  Mom Kimberly chose EUREKA for the project--a great pattern for success for 7 year-old Jenna.  They reported having a perfect weekend. 

I am always glad to see how well our patterns work for beginners.  While they don't specifically teach you how to quilt, with a little instruction from a teacher, the designs make up easily. 

Congrats Jenna--isn't this fun!
