Let’s Bee Social #107
This week I was thrilled to receive a couple of emails from Lee and Sharon. Both of these ladies wrote to show me what they had made. And there’s nothing I like more than to see quilts made using a pattern or tutorial from my blog.
It isn’t very often that someone takes the time to send me a photo of a quilt they have made, but these two emails came within just 12 minutes of each other. I was so excited and asked if they would be willing to have their quilts shared with my readers, so here they are!
“Hi Lorna. I thought l would give you some feedback and a photo as often designers and pattern writers never get much feedback. I brought your pattern Jungle Friends 3 Jan 2016 and just made a small quilt up over weekend (Aussie time) and l must say your pattern writing skills are excellent. It was such an easy pattern to follow it made cutting and piecing a breeze. I really enjoyed creating my version using your pattern. Here is a photo and aside from the quilting and a binding it is all but done. Current size is 42″ x 54”. Cheers, Lee Vause “
Lee Vause does not blog, but does have a website where she offers her services as a longarm quilter here at Threads and Tangles. I was impressed with the arrangement of her animal blocks. Lee used the block sizes to determine her own unique layout! The Jungle Friends quilt pattern is available for purchase in my pattern store here.
Sharon Naylor followed my GenX-Aztec quilt tutorial to make this handsome quilt for her “yet-to-be-born” grandson. And explained that she found this cute bow tie backing fabric first. And then chose matching Kona Cotton Solids for the front.
“Hi Lorna. I thought you might like to see the GenX-Aztec Baby Quilt I made using your pattern and tutorial. This quilt will be a gift for a grandson due in April. The backing is in the bow tie fabric. I decided to make the borders differently. I hope you like it.”
I have been known to do that, too! It is so much fun to work a quilt from the back to the front. Have you ever designed a quilt starting with the backing fabric?
Sharon wrote back to me the next day. Apparently she had purchased the Modern Charm quilt pattern. And sent along photos of her rendition of this fun quilt.
“Hi Lorna. Me again. 🙂
I thought I would also share this one. It was finished in the summer. Hope you like it.”
