Color Love Block of the Month Coming Soon-The Quilt!

Okay, so a while back I showed off my upcoming Color Love fabric collection from Marcus Fabrics with a sneak peek at an applique block. Since we leave tomorrow for Spring Quilt Market, I thought it might be a good time to show a few images of the Color Love BOM quilts. The reason I say "quilts", plural, is because there are two versions of the same quilt: an applique version and a pieced version. The quilts finish at 87" x 93" and the program is designed as a five-part BOM, with "flex" options to make it longer if desired.

Here is my EQ rendering of the applique version.  See the eight cute applique blocks surrounding the center star? They are made up of simple shapes, and to make things even easier, we are offering the blocks as laser cut, pre-fused blocks.

And here is the pieced version for those who do not do the "A" word.

And here is a photo of the actual applique Color Love quilt spread out on my living room floor. I had A LOT of help with this quilt from some great ladies in Albuquerque,NM. Thank you Amanda Ruden!  The pieced quilt was made by Sandy Kent who lives in Texas. I'd show you photos of it too, but it is all folded and packed in a suitcase, ready to go to Pittsburg tomorrow.

Isn't the quilting perfect? Elizabeth Anne Dawson of Albuquerque, NM worked her longarm magic on the quilt.
