Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2010

So the Pinwheel Party won't be happening at the Quilt Festival this year.
I have a part time job now and between that and the store my quilting time is seriously limited.

So...
I'll share with you one of my favorite, favorite quilts.
Scrappy Illusion Quilt
It's called Scrappy Illusion. I finished it way back in May of 2008.
It was one of the last quilts I made using an actual pattern.
Scrappy Illusion
The blocks look like they're set on point but if you look closely you'll see that they're really just pinwheels and 16-patches. Genius!
(The pattern was in an American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. I can't remember which one exactly but if you'd like to know I can try and find it for you. Found it! AP&Q June 2005)

Pin It!

  3. That's lovely. It's nearly thrown me off course, as I'm just starting a 9 patch as a gift... Had better stick to my plan though, as there's a time limit!

  6. I love the brights. I suppose someday I'll be sick of bright colors and wonder why I made so many quilts that way, but for now, I just love how cheery they are.

  7. My boss is adopting a little girl from Russia and I have been trying to decide what kind of quilt to make her. Now I know. If you could find any information about the pattern I would love it.

  13. I am in LOVE! And since you had several who wish to know the issue, I too want to join the ranks for the specifics. I could almost do this without a pattern, but would rather know what the uncut squares and triangle measurements are.
    your blog posts and quilts always make me happy. That's why I keep reading. xoxo
