BABY BOY Quilt!!!
Something about the colors of this quilt and the slashed solids remind me of the 80s and headbands, hence the name of the quilt. The quilt was actually inspired by this photo I ran across on flickr. I loved the composition of the picture, the colors, and the improv shapes. This quilt ended up taking me outside of my comfort zone. It's really minimalist and modern to me. I'm glad I tried it though and that it was done in time to photograph with my favorite spring blooming tree, which I think is a hawthorne tree. I used kona solids and my favorite lipstick shot cotton to create this baby quilt. It is 41 x 49 before washing. I took my inspiration for the quilting from the backing fabric. It is a great sketchy crosshatch flannel I found at Joanns. It reminds me of Heath, and the aqua is so pretty. I finished the binding by machine using this method again. So quick. I thought the wonky crosshatch quilting would be easy, but it was actually a little tricky to keep the random unevenness, even, if you know what I mean. And creating the wonky grid did take a long, long time. I'm pleasantly surprised with how soft and snuggley the quilt is, given the heavy quilting. Maybe it's the flannel, but it has a great drape to it even with all that thread. I'm going to wash and dry this baby quilt, and then it'll be listed in the shop. Up next, a coordinating doll quilt I made with extra blocks. I'm not sure if I want to quilt it the same way or try something a little more feminine.
Dresden's seem to be all around me right now...this one is gorgeous!
Northern Deb Quilts: Civil War/ 1800's Quilt Includes notes on how to create the starburst effect by folding long thin triangles in half and inserting them into the seams to get the white part. Once sewn, press flat.
Farmer's Wife Quilt Block (Dresden Plate). Take a regular fan/dresden pattern and insert triangles that are folded in half, into your seam, you'll have this type of pattern when pressed.
I just made this a few weeks ago. The pattern is from Edyta Sitar at Laundry Basket Quilts.

Civil War/ 1800's Quilt idea
I've started a new quilt! AGAIN! BUT, this time I finished a quilt before I began a new one so I feel okay about it. This is the start of my Civil War Fabrics Quilt. I am SLOWLY collecting some very pretty civil war and 1800's repro fabrics. I'm not sure how I'll be putting this together just yet. I have two options... I might make 16" blocks with this plate in the center and then just do a straight setting OR I might use this as the medallion center and work lots of different blocks around it. I'm leaning towards the second way since I get bored easily. I would be able to do some hand worked blocks and some machine ones to surround this. I still need to decide on a background to set this on. I'm leaning toward a lightly printed muslin if I can find one in civil war prints that I like. Otherwise it'll be plain muslin. I also need to decide on a fabric for the center circle. I'll applique that to the plate, after I applique the plate to the background. Pour mes visiteurs français .... Merci beaucoup de votre visite sur mon blog. 1/29/2014 Update: I've had LOTS of questions and interest in this block. This is my own design but there are some patterns out on the market that are similar. I have an old Russian sunflower block pattern (1950's or older) that inspired me. I used a template for the petals from a company that is no longer in business but you could use any Dresden template. I folded long thin triangles in half and inserted them into the seams to get the white part. This quilt is one of my UFOs now... I used this as the center of a large block and have added rows to surround it. I am slowly making a medallion quilt. One of these days I will update with a picture. Thank you for all the interest.
