Show & Tell Tuesday
I have two very different quilts to share today. I hope you enjoy looking at them.
I made American Heritage in 2010.
It is a pattern designed by Bits 'n Pieces quilt shop in Wayne, Michigan. The original pattern looked like this:
I chose not to applique "1776" and "2006" in the center block.
It was made as a Block of the Month but I cannot remember the quilt shop through which it was offered.
It is technically eight small wall quilts sewn together to make a bed sized quilt. It measures 89" X 104". I pieced the backing from 10 1/2" squares.
I made Klassic Kaleidoscope in 2009 from a pattern in the book
Kaleidoscope the Smart Way by Sharon Sebrow. It is available through Amazon.
To make this quilt I needed to use a special ruler called
The Kaleidoscope Smart-Plate was a great aid to make a quilt block I have long admired. This block is so versatile as it can be combined with other blocks to make some beautiful quilts.
The pattern for the quilt I made is called "Classic Blue and White" and it can be found on page 58 of the book.
I renamed my quilt Klassic Kaleidoscope because I used different colors. My finished quilt measures 42" X 54".
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
