Lori and I have been working on new patterns this summer for Highway 10 Designs and today we published Good Vibrations in our Etsy shop. Both paper and instant PDF download are available. This quilt pattern used 5” strips and is a great way to use a Cantik GemFive Strip set or a Robert Kaufmann Charm Roll. It can also be a great stash buster as you use 5” WOF strips, 20 for the small size and 40 for the large. Our patterns are now available through Checker Distributors and we are working on getting them in with a few Canadian distributors as well.
Our cover quilt is made with two Nunavut GemFive bundles which are a selection of light beige and dark brown batiks. I love the striking contrast of this bundle and creates a random chevron pattern across the quilt. Lori quilted this sample and used Ebb and Flow for the pantograph.
We used a brown/grey Stonehenge wide backing that matched perfectly!
We also made the smaller version using one Great Lakes GemFive bundle. The colors in this one blend more and create a random design across the quilt. I quilted this one with Bora Bora.
The view out my window is very different today, we have been getting snow/rain/ice pleats for the last 3 day and it is suppose to continue until Saturday. If this was November 6 I would be happy but it’s only October 6!
We still have leaves on the Poplars and the needles were just turning yellow on the Tamaracks.
I will have to try to shake this little tamarack off and hope it survives! No school bus today and school was cancelled….this rarely happens here!
I know some of your are happy to see this but I really hope it all melts and I get a few more weeks of autumn!
