A slightly different block and a simple horizontal layout. Those odd cutouts reminded me of lily pads.

Urn Quilt 2

This one is for  virtual quilter who asked to see the urns with a greek key border. I don’t like this one. Too much going on. I have about 55 different options in the file for this quilt so I may show a few different options from time to time. Hope you enjoy it Judy!

Urn Quilt

Something a little different today. I also like the idea of ginger jars so I will draw one of those up and see what develops from there. I like the idea of a pieced border as well! Some might say …….  ‘dream on’ and that’s what I’m doing lol. I also drew up a greek key design for the border but it’s just too heavy for the design.

Been playing around with the colour placement of patches in this quilt. Found a nice RJR fabric (‘Afternoon Tea’)  for the sashings and a Jinny Beyer (jacaranda blue) for my little sashing diamonds. It seems to be pulling me into more of a cool colourway than I had anticipated but I just keep cutting and auditioning and it seems to be looking good.


Someone suggested the pieced border and although I had previously dismissed the idea I have cut some small pieces and am contemplating the idea of about 2,500 tiny patches. If I find the idea too daunting I suppose I could always turn what patches I have into a mini quilt!

Here is one of my blocks so you can see the actual colours and then a proposed layout option. The fabric has orange dragonflys and green leaves on it and with the royal blue background it is stunning.

Another colourway of yesterday’s quilt and because it’s only a repeat of the same quilt I have included another design which I feel is rather over the top lol! Firstly the Opposites Attract.

OppsAtt2 and now my Over The Top Quilt.
