I am still working on making a quilt for each month of the year to hang over my fireplace - this is for the month of April or around Easter time. Some of the fabrics have Easter motifs and others and just spring tones.
I am going to stop putting sleeves on the wall quilts I make. I bought clip on fancier cafe style curtain hooks and hung this quilt using them and I liked the look and so much easier :)
The white on white background for this quilt was an online purchase from a seller at The Quilting Board. It was advertised as white on white but when it arrived it was all about the great state of Texas - steer skulls, cowboy stuff, lassos, branding irons, etc. Not what I expected but all cut up it worked out fine. This quilt has a polyester batting as there is so much with background and I didn't have a white cotton batting.
This pattern is called a Disappearing Four Patch with a Twist. I had picked up this fabric online for $1.00 a yard. The lavender and sunflowers was in strips and a border style fabric and the green was a solid also for $1.00 a yard.
Here is the link for the pattern http://round22.blogspot.com/2012/07/disappearing-4-patch-with-twist.html - it doesn't come up as a hyperlink but you can find it this way. Her example is much nicer than mine.
This too, will hang over the fireplace for the month of June or become a baby girl quilt for a present. I will likely do this again with fabrics that had more definition but for $ 4.00 the quilt is not so bad.
I pieced together some cotton batting to make this quilt and I just zig zag the edges together, no fancy tape for me.
Lastly, is the 16 patch with muslin background. I made this for my g/f Clara. She gave me a jelly roll and I found this pattern in a book by Pam and Nicky Lintott from across the pond. It is a variation on an antique quilt.
Clara will give this as her charity quilt for the guild later on this year. I love the look of muslin in quilts! I buy it by the bolt at Joann's with a 50% off coupon, nothing too expensive and it seems to work just fine in quilts.
