It doesn’t seem like I get very many quilts of my own finished AND actually quilted these days, but I did get this one completed recently. It is from the book, 25 Ways to Sew Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes & Charm Packs by Brioni Greenberg. It is made with Anna Maria Horner’s Dowry and Kona Aqua. I made it for the Fat Stacks Club at The Little General Fabric Boutique.

Kathleen and I just finished teaching the last class in our Imari Plates Block of the Month and we could not have been more thrilled with the group of ladies in the class and the amazing quilts they all produced! Each quilt is just as stunning as the next. They all turned out so different and so beautiful. Above are just a few of the quilts from the class. My bad photography skills do not do them justice.

Kathleen and I have a third round of our BOM starting this fall. It will the the 4th Saturday of every month from 9:00-10:30 am at The Little General Fabric Boutique in Reynolda Village. The BOM will $25 per class and there will be six classes. We would love to have you join us for this great BOM. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me using the form below.

I started working on the Metro Rings Quilt this weekend. It is another Quick Curve Ruler pattern designed by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I just finished the Metro Hoops top and I was chomping at the bit to start this quilt. I am using a Joel Dewberry Notting Hill jellyroll. Both the Metro Hoops and Rings pattern use jellyrolls.

This quilt is coming together quickly and I am kind of excited to get the top done, so I hope to get it done soon.

Lemoyne Star Quilt

Designed by Gina Allen

 51” X 68”

 

The Lemoyne Star blocks were constructed using Deb Tucker’s Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler © and the Tucker Trimmer III© ruler.

1/8 yard of 12 Assorted Prints for Stars (1.5 yards total)

3½ yards Background Fabric for the Stars, Squares and Setting Triangles

3¾ yard Backing Fabric

½ yard Binding Fabric

59” x 76” Batting

Cutting Instructions:

Cut (1) 3 ¼” strip from each of the 12 Assorted Prints. These strips will be used for the points of the Lemoyne Star Block.

Background:

Cut (12) 4 ¾” strips from the background. These strips will be used for the background of the Lemoyne Star Blocks.

Cut (2) 12 ½” strips. Sub cut each 12 ½” strips into (3) 12 ½” squares for a total of (6) 12 ½” squares

Cut (2) 18 1/8” strips. Sub cut (3) 18 1/8” squares from these strips. Cut each 18 1/8” square diagonally twice (from upper left corner to lower right corner and upper right corner to lower left corner).  These will be the setting triangles used in the sides, top and bottom of the quilt. A total of (10) setting triangles are needed.

From the fabric remaining from the 18 1/8” cut, cut (2) 9 3/8” squares. Sub cut each square once on the diagonal. These will be the (4) setting triangles used for the corners of the quilt.

Block Construction: Pair together a 3¼” strip with a 4 ¾” strip for the star block. You will need 6 pairs for the Star blocks. Each pair will yield enough to make 2 star blocks. (12) 12 ½” Lemoyne star blocks are used in this quilt. Using the directions provided with the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler, piece together 12 star blocks.

Layout the quilt referring to the quilt diagram. Sew the blocks together in diagonal rows. Press the seam allowances open.
