This quilt is paper pieced, and is no where near as hard as it looks.  The model is image009made at  50% of normal size but don’t let that scare you.  There are full size blocks available for those not bitten by the “miniature” bug and you can certainly make the whole project in the larger size.   The wonderful thing about paper piecing is the accuracy, so even even complicated looking patterns like this one are easily attainable by all.

double wedding ringRINGS THAT BIND is a process in quilt construction created by Cheryl Phillips. We begin with simple strips sewn into strip sets. Using an Arc-Ease tool we’ll cut arcs from strip sets and sew them into rings. The rings will appear to have been made with many tiny pieces, these are then sewn onto backing circles and then flipped to the other side much like a facing in clothing construction. When the blocks are sewn together and top-stitched, your quilt is finished.

Much simpler than it looks, this pattern is actually made from simple 9-patch Venetian Tilesblocks!   Cut the 9 patches with the X-Block ruler, and then sew them together into rows!  The cut-off pieces become the borders.  Try it with a scrappy look like the floral sample, or in a more controlled palette.  This is a great technique and you will be surprised at how simple it really is.

blooming nine patchThis quilt gives the impression of a color wash with the simplest of piecing…nothing but 9-patches and squares.  On the cover of the book Traditions with a Twist, it is shown in wild floral fabrics.  Our model is done in black and white.  We have simplified a building process that eliminates laying out the many squares and prevents sewing something in the wrong place.

log cabin polkaDots and stripes in bright colors have made this derivative of the Log Cabin a very cheerful quilt.  It isn’t as hard as it looks. Using half log cabin blocks to make the 4 segments in each block and a variety of fabrics, you’ll have this jewel done in no time at all. What a wonderful way to deplete scraps from your stash and make room for new fabric!

This dimensional quilt is different and so much fun to make. When we offered this image008popular class last semester, everyone’s fabric choices looked great. Plaids, primitives, brights, pastels and florals all were successful choices. Try this fun ‘quilt as you go’ method, use up batting scraps, and end up with an original and excellent quilt.
