Two Quarter Circle Quilts in 2013

Now that I am a full time graduate student, quilting has taken a back seat in my life. Custom orders now take me about a year to complete. In 2013, I was able to complete just two orders. I like to think it is about quality, not quantity. I hope you agree…

For the first quilt, I used quarter circles to make a colorful, scalloped pattern.

My second quilt used both quarter circles and triangles to create a more irregular design. This quilt was for a sweet baby boy, and so I added a whimsical appliqué piece on the back.

Even though I was only able to create two designs this past year, both the clients and myself were thrilled with the results.

Modified Herringbone Quilt Scraps

Angela FlickerI made a modified herringbone quilt for my mother, for Christmas, from an original quilt design of mine. I didn’t really have a solidified plan when I sat down to start. As a result, I had lost of leftover scraps. Here are a few photos showing what I did with the scraps…

Don’t throw those quilt scraps out, but find creative ways to use them.

Working with Curves

I am knee deep in piecing curves these days, as I am currently sewing custom quilts for three different clients, all made with bright colored curves. Each quilt design has its own unique feel though, and so while the piecing seems very repetitive and mundane, the overall outcome of each individual quilt will surely be unique.

I can’t wait to have them pieced, quilted, and bound.

Broken Trapezoids

I am very drawn to broken geometric quilt patterns these days. This was the idea behind this custom quilt design titled, Broken Trapezoids.

I love the illusion of holes and an irregular border that the cream color fabric provides. Also, for the quilting, I picked a design with curves, to contrast the diamonds.

All in all, I feel this design was a success.
