Check-This

Check This!
October 2013

For me, patterns and ideas for quilts come from just about anywhere I can find them. The pattern I used for my Check This! quilt was a picture of a quilt that was in my local fabric store’s weekly flyer. I had a lot of checkered fabrics and some homespun plaids that I wanted to use, and this pattern was well suited for them. Much of the fabric was from a bag of material I acquired from someone’s kind, free posting on craigslist.

I donated Check This! to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, in December 2013.

What’s a Zig without a Zag

Zig Zag Quilt

What’s a Zig without a Zag
July 2013

I came across the chevron design, and really liked it. What I didn’t like was that it didn’t lend itself to the strip quilting technique, so I ended-up piecing together 504 pieces! I used one of Granny’s hankies in the bottom left corner of the quilt, shown in detail in the right corner of the quilt picture. I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services in July 2013.
