Barb (above) recently attended a workshop/trunk show featuring the well known designer (fabric & quilt), Kaffe Fassett. This was the piecing that resulted.








Carol, in the photo above, picked this up as a kit. She was fascinated with the gradated background piece of fabric. The tree that, today, would be laser cut was cut by hand, by Carol. Yup, this kit has been hanging around for a while!!! The tree’s outline was on a piece of fusible-backed fabric that she cut out and then stitched, raw-edge, to the background (and, yes, she stitched around every twiglet!!!!!). She shared that what took her so long to do this one was that she was totally stymied as to what/how she would quilt it!!!! She does all her quilting on a newer Janome “Horizon” (DSM).

And that’s the “show” for today!!! Most of the above quilts will find their way to the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, MN, or are QOV.

Til next time………..stitching awaits……..

  1. As always, a great show. I LOVE the stacked boxes, and the string quilt set as a medallion. Very nice. And the tree art quilt, great job for her. Thanks for sharing.

  2. As always, one of my favorite features of your blog. I have grandbaby on the brain, thus took special notice of the cute cute baby quilt.

    And that tree…what a work of art.

    As always some lovely quilts on show. Lots of ideas hidden in among them too. The peacock window quilt especially interests me. A WIP in my work box is an attic window quilt with an autumn scene outside. It has had to take a lower place in the “to do pile”, other things are taking over as the Yule season approaches.

      I so understand the avalanche of projects these days. That window quilt started out as a peacock panel that Mary sliced both ways, inserted narrow sashing and added the surrounding borders and blocks, so, technically, it isn’t an “attic windows” process…..more of a “slice & dice”!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!

    I love that you show all of these Doreen!!! Such beautful and artistic masterpieces. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ones with black ( #3 & #4 photo’s)

      And those were fabrics (strips) that she received on a summer shop hop (Iowa, I believe). Something like a strip set (#?)/shop. She added the “pop” of the red……love that one!!!!

    Doreen, it’s so nice to be visiting and see all of the beautiful quilts! You are such a prolific group of quilters! As always, I find that my eye is drawn to the blue and white. The black and white is neat, too!
    So, since i’m so very behind, if there is a particular post you are fond of, share the link 🙂

    Love the navy and white quilt; is there a pattern name for it? I’m new to this quilting thing, having been a garment sewist all my life! Kathy

    Hi Doreen. Well my apple roses didn’t look like yours but they tasted good. I think I put too many apples in and some flopped over. Will try again. Love to see the pictures of other guilds, gives me inspiration. Really like that blue and white with the small yellow border. If you can would like to know the pattern name, thanks,

    • treadlemusic says:

      The “Apple Roses” surprised me as to how few slices really were needed!!!! The name of the navy/white quilt is “Hunter’s Star” and it was made using the “Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star” Plexiglass rotary template. If you look at my response to the previous comment, I included links to the pattern (both with and without the template). The template is a rather “slick” way to do it!!!!!!

    Wow, your group has outdone themselves again. Beautiful quilts; those black and White are gorgeous, especially the one with squares. Then there’s the “tree” – what a work of art – beautiful.
