Cream and Sugar

This pretty and delicate quilt was made by Audrey.  The pattern is the Cream and Sugar Block of the Month by It's Sew Emma.  Audrey used fabrics from her stash to pull this quilt together, and I think she did an amazing job.  I personally have next to no fabrics of this type in my stash, but I was really drawn to this quilt, and does it ever look good in my spare room where I often photograph quilts.

Check out the planning and the fussy cutting for the square in the centre of this star!

Audrey chose the Feathered Garden pantograph and the mix of florals and feathers adds just the right touch to finish this quilt beautifully.

$3.31 Quilt

I followed along with a mystery quilt that was sponsored by the Canadian Quilters Association over the last few months. The pattern was free to members.  The pattern is called the $3.31 quilt and was designed by John at Art East Quilting Company.  The name comes from the fact that the images are those depicted on the Canadian coins that total $3.31.

I didn't use the suggested fabrics, but rather bought the blue denim Northcott canvas for the background and picked the rest of the fabrics from my stash.  I was happy to still have some of my special loon fabrics to add in.

I used the Windswept pantograph , Quilter's Dream Puff batting and a cozy Cuddle-tex backing fabric.

Raspberry Kiss

Amy made this sweet little quilt for her second great niece who will be arriving soon.  She used the Raspberry Kiss tutorial from Wooden Spoon Quilts.

Amy chose the Wildflower pantograph which compliments her border fabric perfectly.

Woven Dreams

Tannis made this charming quilt using the Bee Grateful fabric line by Deb Strain for Moda.  The pattern is from Kansas Troubles called Woven Dreams.

Tannis chose the Fanciful Fliers pantograph. I did something that I don't normally do and used a contrasting thread on the back.  The yellow thread and pantograph pattern add some interest to the solid black backing fabric that Tannis provided.

Temperature Quilt

This beauty is Amy's 2022 Temperature Quilt.  The pattern is available free from Canuck Quilter Designs.  All the different variations out there, this is my favorite Temperature quilt pattern and the color palette Amy selected is just wonderful.

Amy chose the Arrowful pantograph and I love how the movement of the pantograph compliments the movement in the piecing.

Each row in the quilt represents a month, with the daily high temperature and the daily low temperature being represented by the different colored squares.

Scrambled Eggs

Reneta made this adorable chicken quilt.  The pattern is called Scrambled Eggs and is by Art East Quilting Company.

The pattern cover shows a blue background which is lovely, but there is something about this straw coloured background Grunge fabric that just speaks to me.

Reneta chose the Popcorn pantograph which is an oldie but a goodie.  A straw coloured thread finished things off perfectly.

Madeline made this darling Landslide quilt.  It is a 3 yard quilt from the Fabric Cafe.

Madeline chose a new pantograph in my collection called Blooming Birds.  When this pantograph arrived I wasn't sure if I would ever use it because the scale was smaller than I expected and it seemed too busy for most quilts.  But, never say never as it was a perfect match for Madeline's quilt, adding interest to the large HST blocks and matching the floral print wonderfully.

I found a wonderful pink Magnifico thread for the top and the tension on my Innova allowed me to use a white thread on the back to compliment the white on white backing fabric Madeline used.
