August 1! Can you believe it? It is definitely summer in Texas. We have had 100º + weather for days.
I have been working on new patterns to present at Fall Wholesale Quilt Market in Houston. So far I have three.
The first one is called Post & Beam. It is a great component made lap quilt.
The center is one component done in four fabric combinations using 8 Fat Quarters. With two borders it makes a 60” X 60” quilt.
The fabrics I have been working with are new lines from Moda Fabrics that will be coming to your local ilt shop this fall.
This example is made with “Tranquility” by Sandy Gervais. It will ship in November.
There is a great panel in this line that I cut up to make sections for a scrappy version of the quilt.
The birds just make me happy.
I am still working on border selections for these. Don't you just love this fabric?
I cut the tiny birds to make the centers of the blocks.
I am making several samples for the pattern using totally different fabrics.
Check back tomorrow to see a very manly version for the guy in your life. Hint: it is flannel.
Be sure to check the website Calico Carriage Quilt Designs for all the patterns and books. We have a section called Specials that has some great deals in it.
