Let’s Bee Social #164
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
Today I’m going to take you for a trip down memory lane…
I am so excited to share this quilt made by Maureen.
She emailed me…..
Hello Lorna, I am a member of the London Friendship Quilters’ Guild and I bought the On Point Pattern from you at our meeting. I wanted to make a quilt for a new granddaughter and decided to use your pattern for it. While looking through your patterns on your Etsy site, I saw the Wow-E pattern and knew it would be the right size for a baby quilt, so I used the On Point pattern for the star blocks , but used the Wow-E layout. I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures of my granddaughter’s quilt.
Thank you very much for your great patterns,
Isn’t she adorable! And the quilt is simply stunning, too. I love the serpentine stitch Maureen chose for the quilting. Those wavy lines add a softening touch to the sharp points found in the star like blocks.
Thanks so much for sharing your photos and story with us, Maureen!!!
It was back in December of 2014 that I first shared the first Wow-E! quilt made using these blocks. I had a few fat quarters of solids that I felt really not very appealing. I am so drawn to the brighter colours and felt that these pieces had a washed out look to them. But paired together with some charcoal and silver against a snowy white background, they were rather lovely.
I did remake the blocks in a straight setting for a custom order so this was only the first quilt I shared back then. I took an indoor photo of my completed quilt and then decided to head outdoors for more photos. The photo below inspired me to remake these blocks once again.
After seeing the quilt draped on the door of our rustic well house, I wanted to make it in an on point setting. So I wrote a new pattern for these blocks and gave it a new name: On Point. You can read more about that in this post.
And so here was the finished new quilt made using the blocks in the on point setting. It was a rather windy day so the quilt behaved more like a sail on a ship, but this does help you to visualize just how it would look draped upon a bed, rather than hanging on a wall!
The On Point pattern is one that I had decided to provide in a printed format for sale at guild trunk shows, but you can find the pdf version for sale in my shop here.
