My Follow the Leader quilt features Christa Watson's newest fabric line with Benartex Contempo Studio, Abstract Garden.  I love Christa's playful prints and that each of her lines coordinate with the other previous lines.  The background on this quilt are grey prints from her Fandangle fabric collection.


This design is fat quarter friendly and is 100% compatible with one of my favorite templates, the Tri-Rec tool!  I wish I would have remembered to take more pictures before sending the quilt to Benartex.  I did manage to get a quick shot of the quilt top.  I can't help but smile when I see all those bright cheerful colors.

Unused Designs

Over the past year I've designed many quilts.  Some I've completed, some I've pieced a top for and others I've purchased fabric for and the others well are sitting on my computer or in my notebook and will never be made.  Even though I like these designs for one reason or another I'm not going to make them but if any of you want to have a go you are more than welcome to use them.  These pictures are all screen shots so if you would like more information on a design please contact me.

Lost Geese was inspired by a pillow of metallic triangles.  I just couldn't capture the look I wanted without true metallic fabrics.
 
UNTITLED

I'm not sure where I was going with this so I just stopped before I got too far into the process.  I think the right fabric choices and this could be great.

SUBMARINES

I like this design I just don't think I'd make this quilt.  Again this was inspired from a shape on a pillow, it reminded me of a submarine.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!  I've been very productive over the Christmas break and will more to show very soon.
