Last year, I was privileged to design a few quilt patterns for Robert Kaufman. They gave me some fabric from their lines and asked me to design a pattern that would work with the product. These are the two I made for them. The process of designing and writing the patterns was really fun for me. Both patterns can be found for free at the Robert Kaufman website and they are not hard to make at all. HEXIE HELIX PATTERN - click for the link SPECTRUM CANDY PATTERN - click for the link
I'm going to be transferring a few of the posts I had made on my Facebook page over here so that they can all be in one place again - to catch up...
Here's a post of the quilt I made up to the last minute as I left for the hospital to have baby Dax.
Here is the last quilt I finished before going into the hospital to give
birth... It started off a few years ago as 4 leftover blocks from the
quilt I made for our foster baby as he
left our home... Then I made it into a small (too small) top. For
years I would pull it out and try different borders onto it to try and
make it bigger, but none of them worked. I finally pulled it out
recently and found some fabrics I liked for it. I decided to hand quilt
it, since it had been a while since I had hand quilted a project, and
then when it was getting close to done, I couldn't imagine parting with
it... So it had to be finished before baby came home. I "may have"
actually (read: I DID) delayed our departure to the hospital by 15-20 minutes as I
begged Jay to understand that I needed to finish this binding before we
left. In the end, I could have brought it with me and worked on it
for the next 24 hours before I finally had my c-section to get this
little guy out...
