Vertebrae quilt variations || Quilting from every Angle

Hello again!

For right now, this is the last pattern I am sharing from my book, Quilting from every Angle.  In November, there will be a blog tour, so stay tuned.  All work was done by those who volunteered to make a quilt from the book, and all photography was done by the individual who made the quilt.  Each person chose their fabrics and were permitted to do whatever they liked with the pattern.  I had no say in what they chose to do with it or the colors and fabrics they used.  Basically, I gave them free reign.  It's their quilt anyways, and I wanted it to reflect their own personalities, not mine.

What is really interesting and nice to see is other people's interpretations of your patterns.  I love seeing a design of mine in a color way I normally would not gravitate towards because it helps me to see how many varieties the design can take, and maybe, it will one day encourage me to branch out of my own comfort zone.  Sometimes, people see things in a way you never could have imagined.  I think that is why I love quilting and art so much.

Quilting from every Angle is a book that shows my love for design.  It is filled with unique and graphic quilts.   I really wanted quilt designs that could appeal to younger and older generations, but my main focus was to grab the attention of quilters who loved graphic design and modern day textile art.  Although all of my quilts are rooted in traditional piecing and shapes, the combination I did with these things makes the patterns stand out and are very graphic.  I hope that you enjoy the quilt patterns I am sharing with you this week.

VERTEBRAE

Vertebrae came about from my visit to Scotland.  I found this amazing fabric by Warwick and contacted the company for their permission to turn it into a design.  My design varies a little from what I saw, but I knew everything was perfect about it.   It gets it name from the finger-like projections with a spine like center, which resembles vertebrae.  This pattern is perfect for advanced beginners and comes together in a weekend.

Colorblock quilt variations || Quilting from every Angle

Hello again!

I am sharing five different quilt patterns from Quilting from every Angle with you, and today's stop is Colorblock.  All work was done by those who volunteered to make a quilt from the book, and all photography was done by the individual who made the quilt.  Each person chose their fabrics and were permitted to do whatever they liked with the pattern.  I had no say in what they chose to do with it or the colors and fabrics they used.  Basically, I gave them free reign.  It's their quilt anyways, and I wanted it to reflect their own personalities, not mine.

COLORBLOCK

I love the look of log cabins.  They are very versatile, and I had to sneak one into the book.  :)  I replaced one of the strips with HSTs, but really, you could take it further by adding more.  I have two more designs in mind with this pattern that I hope to find time to explore!  I chose a weaved solid by Alissa Haight Carlton for In the Beginning Fabrics, which for this pattern, lent a unique look that I love.  This is the kind of quilt that needs to be seen in person to see how fantastic the colors are.  Log cabins are great for beginner quilters.

MESA

My husband and I drove across the country to live in San Diego, CA for a summer.  On our road trip I was inspired by the beautiful southwest.  I honestly can see why people like to live there.  If it were not so dang hot, I think I might manage it.  I was so impressed with the barren land and scenery.  It was quite spectacular, especially when you have lived around greenery all your life.  I could see for miles.  I loved seeing the mesas against the vivid blue sky.  The Mesa quilt is dedicated to that scenery.

SPLIT DECISION

This is a paper pieced pattern I sketched up while doodling triangles.  I split the geese on the x and y axis but left the geese whole on the 45 degree angles.  I think there are several different ways to look at this pattern, and fabric placement will be key in showing that.  It's a fun one to play around with and is great for beginner paper piecing.  This is a mini quilt making it perfect for swaps, pillows, and more.

Desert Blooms Medallion variations || Quilting from Every Angle

Hello!  I am happy to share with you today the variations of Desert Blooms Medallion made by some lovely and talented ladies.   Please make sure to check them out!

All photography is done by the individual who made the quilt.  Each person chose their fabrics and were permitted to do whatever they liked with the pattern.  I had no say in what they chose to do with it or the colors and fabrics they used.  Basically, I gave them free reign.  It's their quilt anyways, and I wanted it to reflect their own personalities, not mine.

What is really interesting and nice to see is other people's interpretations of your patterns.  I love seeing a design of mine in a color way I normally would not gravitate towards because it helps me to see how many varieties the design can take, and maybe, it will one day encourage me to branch out of my own comfort zone.  Sometimes, people see things in a way you never could have imagined.  I think that is why I love quilting and art so much.

DESERT BLOOMS MEDALLION

Inspired by the southwest and drawn to the beautiful fabrics by Cotton and Steel, I knew I wanted to make a medallion quilt for the book.  The design lend itself for great fussy cutting.  I love working border by border, and I think you will find this one fun too.  This is great for advanced beginners.  The diamonds are paper pieced, but you can opt to make them another way of your choosing.  Trim your hsts to 2 1/2"!

Fossil quilt variations || Quilting from every Angle

After I got my advanced copy of the book Quilting from every Angle, I reached out on Instagram asking if anyone would be interested in making a quilt from the book.  I received quite some interest! I wanted to share with you the quilts they made along with my version from the book.

I will be sharing five different quilt patterns from the book with you.  All photography is done by the individual who made the quilt.  Each person chose their fabrics and were permitted to do whatever they liked with the pattern.  I had no say in what they chose to do with it or the colors and fabrics they used.  Basically, I gave them free reign.  It's their quilt anyways, and I wanted it to reflect their own personalities, not mine.

FOSSIL

The first one I want to share with you is called Fossil.  Fossil came about while playing with triangles and moving them around.  The end result looked like a rib cage that was partially unearthed.  When I sketched Fossil, I instinctively knew I wanted the colors to be a fire-y orange red.  Placed on a white background, it created a visually high-impact design.  For the quilting, I echoed the design.  Fossil is a pretty straightforward pattern that is great for advanced beginners.
