Astrerix
24” x36”
(2015)

This quilt started with the colors—chosen from paint colors using my intials—Scallywag, Love Story and Spa Day.  I’d been playing around with the 60*/hexagon shape for a while and the hint of hot pink made these asterisks pop.


YBR
36” x 46”
(2012)

I issued a challenge to my quilt group. Make something using a drunkards path shape—anything—I wanted them to try something out of the comfort zone.  When we were throwing ideas around, someone suggested the path could be the Yellow Brick Road.  Some of the path is hand pieced—most is machine pieced.  The Emerald City is machine applique and the city and poppy fields are hand embellished.


Charmed, I’m Sure
36” x 40”
(2015)

I wanted a new way to play with pre-cut 5” squares, while still keeping it simple. A minimum of sewing and cutting leads to big visual impact.


Row x Row – Swan Boat
9” x 36”
(2015)

I was excited by the 2015 Row by Row theme–H2O. So much to choose from, but I focused on where my shop is located, as well as the water. The Swan Boats in the Public Garden are a Boston tradition and the Citgo Sign is a legendary landmark.  By keeping the lines simple and clean, the pattern wasn’t intimidating and became a fan favorite.

Hope’s Diamond
40” x 48”
(2014)

A nod to my niece, Hope, this quilt was my “audition” for the certification course with Sue Pelland Designs.  I completed the center and decided to leave off the floral/vine borders, a more modern take on the quilt. I love the teal and aqua palette and had so much fun pulling together the fabrics for this quilt.


Magic Carpet Ride
56” x 68”
(2015)

As a Sue Pelland Certified Instructor, I have been happily making samples.  This was by far my favorite to plan—the colors were fun to play with and I love the pop of gold behind the dark blues. The lemon leaf shape is simple to make and the layered applique makes the result is striking!


Bear Paw
60” x72”
(2015)

My father, the Bear, turned 70 this year and I struggled to find the perfect way to celebrate. I stumbled across Elisa Sims Albury’s Bear Paw for Quilting the New Classics by Michele Muska on the Pinterest.  (all hail Pinterest!) and knew that was what I would recreate for my dad. I needed more paws to represent the 12 members of the immediate family and three sizes, not just two.  The book helped me deconstruct the quilt top and once I knew what I wanted, I went to town with low volume greys.  I can’t wait to give it to him!


This was my first foray into Kaffe Fasset fabrics.  I have always loved orange and the combination of these organey-golds with the blues made my heart sing.  A simple box pattern let these fabrics shine!
