Warm Welcome

I made this little quilt as a baby shower gift for a lovely friend from our homeschooling community. I was originally planning to randomly arrange all the fabrics, but as the completed (unassembled) blocks from one color bin at a time went onto the wall, I started to think it might be nice to arrange them in a more systematic fashion. I really love how the hue/value matrix came out. Very simple pattern, with simple "apple core" quilting lines in the background strips, but very striking I think. I'll definitely make this again.

Title: Warm Welcome (42.5" x 42.5")


  1. Welcome to blog-land - I found you through Tom Burkholder (he and my husband are cousins).

    I love this quilt, the colors, layout and expecially the simple "apple core" quilting. Do you do your own machine quilting?

    I am also a fabric artist, it's a great stress reliever - better than therapy! I do a little blogging about my projects too.

    I look forward to seeing more of your projects.

  2. Thanks Carolyn! I do all of my own machine quilting on my Viking Topaz 30.
