Right after fall quilt market, I introduced the first pattern in my new Tokens of the Past series, called Gathering In Red. I'm so happy to say that this pattern has been very well received.
You may remember that I made all of the units and blocks for all three quilts from just one of the brand new Prairie Gathering 10" precut squares! Add the borders and binding and your done! How's that for easy, breezy??
Gotta love simple patchwork like the Checkerboard blocks that make up the center of this quilt. Had to add the star block border....who doesn't love stars anyway? They're always a welcome addition to any quilt, and I named it Checkerboard Stars. Why call it anything else?
This quilt measures 24" x 24".
I wanted to feature that pretty medium red fabric, and put is smack dab in the center of the star block for this quilt, and it seems to radiate in a burst of color from the center star. And, so I named this quilt, Starburst. This quilt measures 24" x 24".
I wanted a simple table runner that had a lot of movement to it, and this quilt, simply called, Friendship Stars, certainly has that. The full range of creams and reds are perfectly set off by the deepest red border for a stunning presentation. This quilt measures 22" x 16".
The Prairie Gathering precut features forty 10" x 10" squares, two each of twenty prints I selected myself. Look for the Prairie Gathering precut at your local shop in February, 2015!
As we are about to give thanks for the blessings in our lives, I'd like to extend a special offer to you....a little something to show my gratitude, and thank you for your business, for reading my blog, for your comments, and friendship.
