My Next Quilt

I am a quilter.  If you have met me recently, you probably wouldn’t know this about me because it has been WAY too long since I have made a quilt.  I started learning about quilting when I was pregnant with my first baby over 10 years ago!  Wow, that makes me feel old.  🙂  Here are some of my favorite quilts.

 This quilt is called a bull’s eye quilt.  I found my pattern in a book called “Quilts from Aunt Amy”.  I made this with 3 of my friends back in 2009.  We traded blocks so we could have more of a variety of fabric.  I love making something cute from scraps.  Someday I am going to get a picture of the 4 of us and our quilts.

This quilt is called Button up Buttercup by Friend Folks.  I made this one back in 2008.

This is Peppermint Posies by Thimble Blossoms.  I made this quilt in 2009.  I love having a Christmas quilt.  Someday I hope to have more seasonal quilts to rotate with the holidays and seasons.

This is a hexagon quilt.  It is pieced 100% by hand.  I know, I’m crazy.  But isn’t it cute?  I followed the tutorial by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms.  This quilt isn’t quilted and bound, but I still enjoy it hanging in my sewing room.  I started this quilt in 2008, and maybe I will get it finish this year. Maybe.

I bought me a new machine last year and I’m sad to say she hasn’t made a quilt yet.  (It’s been a crazy busy year.)  It’s time to break her in.

Now, this is where I need your help.  I bought a fat quarter bundle a while ago of “Pure” by Sweetwater.  I love the brown and aqua!  Now I just need to make something with it.  Do you have a favorite quilt pattern I should try?  I would love to hear your suggestions.  Thanks in advance for your help and I will be sure to show you what I make.
