I Spy A Cool Quilt
There’s nothing more gratifying than having a student (one from a workshop or one who has read your book) email with a photo of a FINISHED quilt. When they take your idea and run with it, that’s even better.
I recently got an email from Kiersten Pasciek who took one of the patterns from one of my books, and …. well, I’ll let her tell it in her own words:
I recently made 2 quilts based on your pattern ‘Child’s Play’ from the book Picture Play Quilts. Instead of cutting the blocks to size and traditionally quilting, I chose to keep the blocks the size of your audition templates, leaving a nice 1/2″ seam allowance (I cut the blocks to 3″ and 4″). I layered each block with a same-size piece of flannel wrong sides together and sewed the pattern with all the seams to front. I then clipped the seam allowances and put the quilt through the washer and dryer to create a rag quilt. Here are my quilts. I hope they might inspire someone to try using your patterns who is in a hurry or perhaps doesn’t enjoy the quilting part of making a quilt :)
