To The Rescue Fox Playground

TO THE RESCUE & FOX PLAYGROUND

36" × 50" & 36" × 52" $55.00
These two quilts were made using the Aardvark Quilts pattern entitled "A Baby Nine Patch Stripes Quilt." As suggested by the name of the pattern, each of these quilts has nine-patch blocks set among strips. In some cases, the strips are 4½" wide, to show a scene such as the foxes' playground, for example; in other cases, we used 3-strip strip-sets. If you look closely, you will find firemen-dogs climbing long ladders in some of the strips in To The Rescue.

45" × 57" $60.00
Ponies is one of 20 projects by Jenny Doan and Missouri Star Quilt Company published in the Winter 2013 issue of Fons & Porter's Quilting Quickly; the magazine is, of course, included in your kit. You can find the pattern, entitled "Christmas Traditions," on pages 52-56.

Mod Squares

MOD SQUARES

43" × 52" $55.00
Mod Squares is the quilt pictured on the cover of Brenda Henning's book, Oh Baby! Modern Quilts for Children of All Ages, published by Bear Paw Productions, 2013, pp 8-10. Laura notes that "crayon colors on pure white make a dramatic modern baby quilt or art quilt." We anxiously look forward to the day when Laura starts to quilt her project; we suspect that she will have a lot of fun quilting in the negative space.

Love & Glory

LOVE & GLORY

22" × 40" $22.50 (for the 3-panel packet)
Although faux-chenille projects make wonderful rugs, you may want to hang Love & Glory in a place of honor on your wall. Six layers are required: three panels, carefully overlaid, a backing fabric, the batting, and the back. Our packet for Love & Glory has the three panels created by Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics. You will need to purchase separately the fabrics for the other three layers and for the binding. The pattern, which can be purchased separately for $2.00, is included in the packet.

Flatbread

FLATBREAD

50" × 68" $68.50
Jill Guffy and Marny Buck chose to call this Modern Quilt Relish pattern Flatbread, and added: "Valued rectangular shapes serve up a distinctive crunch. Add the condiment of your choice for depth of flavor." Lois chose gorgeous purple flowers from the Belle collection designed by Mary Fisher™ for Clothworks™. The pattern, in the kit, includes instructions for a table runner and for a queen quilt, in addition to those for this throw.  PS. I think we really need a different name for Lois' quilt! Please send us your suggestions.

BIRD SONG

39" × 56" $47.50
Bird Song features fabrics from the Bird Song collection, designed by Graphic 45 for Wilmington Prints.

In addition to the instructions for this wall hanging, the Wilmington Prints pattern (in the kit) also gives details for making a Queen Quilt using fabrics from the same collection. (Of course, you would have to purchase these fabrics separately.) And finally, we note that the panel is available for purchase separately ($7.50) should you wish to create your own setting.

FUZZY WUZZY

FUZZY WUZZY

45" x 59" $85.00
Fuzzy Wuzzy is the greatest lap quilt for cool evenings. Made of flannels, it has definite "warm comfort appeal." We show the fuzzy fringed side in our picture; the other side is smooth, of course. Your kit has twenty (20) different flannels, cut in 11" × wof strips and the batting; this makes the quilt in our picture - 7 blocks wide by 7 blocks long. This project is easy to make, and also gives you a chance, if you wish, to try free motion quilting, block by block; each block is quilted before it is assembled into the completed quilt. And there are no borders to fuss with. (Of course, we can show you a neat way to add borders if you want them.) We use current fabric collections in our kits. (We no longer have the collection from which the quilt in our picture was made.) Therefore, it is important to look at the kits that we currently have (or, if you are phoning in, to ask for a description of the fabrics). In addition, we have an excellent selection of flannels and may be able to cut a kit just for you, using colors and patterns you like. If you should desire a smaller or larger quilt, the table in our pattern shows you how many blocks you will need; all that you need to remember is that you get 5 blocks from each pair (2) of 11" × wof strips.
