Trunk Full of Quilts - An Online Trunk Show 2016

Welcome to my stop on the Trunk Full Of Quilts online quilt trunk show event hosted by Soma @ Whims and Fancies
 

If you are new to my blog, I hope that you will take a few minutes to look around. In addition to the quilts/tutorials I highlighted below, you can find all of my recent finishes in the sidebar to the right and you can find my free Meadow Mystery quilt along, Quilt Pattern Writing Series, and other tutorials in the tabs above.

When I participated in last year's Trunk Full Of Quilts online quilt trunk show, I showed off my first quilt as well as some of my favorites from the past few years. This year, I thought it might be nice to show you some of my favorite tutorial quilts I made.


Candy Circle Quilt

Candy Circle was my first Moda Bake Shop quilt tutorial. My goal with the design was to be able to make a quilting using some of the (then) new candy charm packs (also called mini charm packs). The quilt is a baby sized quilt using some the Mirabelle line from Fig Tree & Co. With just four mini charm packs (or just one charm pack), a focal print fabric, and some background fabric, you can have a cute baby quilt ready to gift. This quilt was juried into an AQS show (I believe it was Chattanooga) and then was gifted to my brother for his new baby girl.


Building Blocks Quilt
Original post about quilt

Building Blocks was another one of my Moda Bake Shop tutorials. For this quilt I really wanted to be able to make a good size baby quilt using only one charm pack (to help myself and others come up with ways to use all of their single charm packs in their stash).  I made the baby quilt using the Daysail collection by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.  Building Blocks became one of the top tutorials on the Moda Bake Shop website for 2015.


Rainbow Rail Fence Quilt


I made the Rainbow Rail Fence quilt and corresponding free tutorial for the Bear Creek Quilting Company. My son loves rainbows and had requested a rainbow quilt for his room.  I used one Kona Sunset and one Kona Sunrise roll-up (by Robert Kaufman) to create a double bed sized quilt (80" x 80").



Nordic Playlist Quilt


The Nordic Playlist quilt and corresponding free tutorial were also made for the Bear Creek Quilting Company. My daughter was just moving up to her big girl bed and needed a new quilt right when Bear Creek picked up some Paradiso collection by Kate Spain for Moda at Quilt Market.  My daughter loved the colors and helped me pick out the prints that she wanted to use. One nice thing about this pattern is that each 18" block is made using one fat quarter so it is easy to scale up or down in size.



Peg's Garden Quilt 


I made Peg's Garden for my Grandma-in-law, Grandma Peg for Christmas in 2013. She was 98 years old at the time and was a blessing in my husband and my life.  She passed away a few months ago at over 100 years old.  For the quilt, I used some more traditional colors and prints than I normally do, but the quilt would look awesome in some more modern fabrics too.  The pattern is available as a free download on Craftsy.

   
I hope that you enjoyed my trunk show and found a pattern that might would work for a future quilting project.

  12. I remember seeing the Building Blocks quilt on Pinterest, and followed that link back to your tutorial. I haven't made the pattern yet, but it still remains one of my favorite on my to-do list! Something about how the charms are surrounded by inner and outer borders is really appealing to me.

    So fun to see some of your other creations, too!
