Frosting on the Cinderella Pumpkins


This quilt belongs to Gayle...perfectly pieced and the fabrics are soooooooooooooo much better than what my photos show....
 I stitched in the ditch around each pumpkin and stems, created echoed diamonds around the pinwheels, cross hatched inside the pumpkins and feather swirled the background.  Super fun to quilt!!!  
Thanks Gayle!  

Cinderella Pumpkin Pattern is available here

Sunflowers On Parade.

There have been a few 'And So It Crows' quilts getting finished this Fall!  

Love how this quilter changed the pattern by adding pumpkins!

Here's a look at the full pattern quilted with an all over panto called Marmalade.  Looks terrific!  Quilted by Kim Coons of Goldendale, Washington

A smaller version of the quilt pattern

Quilting sure adds interest!

Oh and this one!  Bring on the teal!!!  Love it!!

And a look at the original 'And So It Crows' 

Don't be intimidated by all those small pieces!  For the sunflower petals, bird tails and beaks, I use the Magic 8 Method to create half square triangles. 
The pattern calls for enlarged fabric squares, making 8 half square triangles at a time and bigger than needed. This allows each half square triangle to be trimmed to size, creating accuracySweeeeet!
Visit the highlighted Magic 8 Method above for a step by step tutorial.

A Flock of RedWings

I had the pleasure of quilting Cindy's RedWing Blackbird quilt using an all over pantograph called Ginger with 50wt. So Fine thread.  

Below is a close up of my original quilt using just one background fabric. 
I love how Cindy 'scrapped' her background!

This is Cheryl's using a cute red polka dot! Sweeet!

No matter how you fly...these RedWing Blackbirds make me smile!

Pattern is listed on Etsy, Craftsy and on the right side of my blog under 'More Patterns'.

If you have a favorite quilt shop in your area who you think might like to carry some of my patterns, or a quilt guild who would like a trunkshow//lecture//workshop...please pass my info along.   I'd appreciate it. :)

New release of PieBirds pattern...coming soon!

I'm updating the previous PieBirds Hot Pad pattern to include this cute PieBirds Runner.  Measures 7" x 37"...nice and skinny to fit down the middle of your table with enough room to set place settings too!

Great for an entry table...

Have you entered the drawing to win a Laugh Yourself Into Stitches Tote bag full of
Pie Bird Hot Pad makings?

Yesterday, i added some Insul~Bright (the heat resistant batting) and bottle of Fray Check.  I don't know about you, but that comes in handy sometimes!

Today is Post 5 and I think everyone should try a spool of 50 wt. Aurifil Thread!  It's great for piecing, leaving a nice flat seam.
