House Arrest Quilts Day Six

Yes, I have more quilts! These were pieced in recent years and have been hanging in my studio closet. I do a lot of teaching and believe in having a LOT of class samples: blocks, block parts, rows, etc. Then I look at my bulging boxes and see that those quilt parts just want to be put together!

The first is my Textured Leaves quilt made using my Princess Feather pattern. I blogged about this last year. And I gave a link to the first quilt I made for Windham Fabrics - it's a FREE download! I also quilted this on my Handi Quilter - 17, 282 stitches!

Here's a look at the plumes up close:

If you visit that link above, you will see a few other quilts made using this pattern.

Another finish for me has been my class sample for the Flying Swallows quilt. Traditionally this is stitched using y-seams and templates. Not me! That's why it's a fun class to teach. Also quilted on my HQ Sweet 16  with 13,130 stitches!

I still have two other un-quilted class samples of this pattern. I like to have at least one so that my students can see what the wrong side of the blocks look like - how the seams are pressed, etc.

Here is one I did in Fairy Frost:

We rotary cut the diamonds:

Check out my 7 page Flying Swallows Quilt pattern in my Etsy store. You can see two other quilts in this pattern, too! The pattern has several process shots with real fabric, too!

Yes, I have even more quilts I'm working on to finish. I'll be sharing those soon. Have a great weekend!
