Patchwork Auditions Workshop Quilt #1

I'm so happy to show you this recent finish of mine!  This quilt is the first of 2 similar designs I created for a WORKSHOP based on the Patchwork Auditions series quilt I made last year, my book Sister Sampler Quilts, and my love of all things samplers.

So many times, we become ingrained at seeing blocks colored a certain way. The original Patchwork Auditions looks at 7 simple/classic blocks and exposes alternate colorings.  I loved this exercise and wanted to do it again, only this time with some more complex blocks.

This 4 block sampler quilt uses the Rising Star block from my book.  I sketched out alternate ways to color this block and then chose to sew my favorites.

I am over the moon about how it came out! The 4 sampler blocks are flanked by Flying Geese and then set on a stunning navy background fabric to really highlight the block work.  And the quilting!!  Oh man, don't get me started.  I am in looooooove with this new to me quilting motif.  Straight lines with the pebbles/bubbles alternating in.  Super pattern - and totally doable at home.  I had this quilted by my LAQ, but I definitely can see attempting this on my home machine.
I'll be back with the second version of this quilt in a day or so.  And I'll also have details on the Workshop for those who may be interested!

  1. That is amazing the different looks to the blocks just by switching up the way you colour it! Not to mention how I love the actual colours in this quilt. Beautiful!
