Cornflower Blue

Taking this project on was a bit of a dare; I was challenged to use our solid Cornflower from the Quilter’s Candy collection in a creative yet innovative way. One of my favorite quilting inclinations is to use a touch of applique with every quilt.  How can I design a quilt using our Solid Cornflower and not use the actual flower?  NOT!  Introducing… Cornflower Blue…

Spring Into Bloom

Oh, my, gosh! How I love brights! So, I’ve been carrying around in my head for months this quilt image that is only pieced with bright fabrics with a white-on-white background, and the brights were given ample room so they explode off the white space. I’m so ready for spring and the pick-me-up we get from the sun and beautiful flowers, hence, Spring into Bloom!

French Countryside

The Chateau de Fleurs collection is an enchanting recreation of French sensitivity. Delicate toile, combined with soft florals in antique colors, takes me back to my studies of the Renaissance period. French Countryside is evocative of what I would consider French country design. You will find soft colors of nature with golds, reds as seen in flowers, and blues and greens like the fields and sky.

Gathered Friends

The Gathered Friends quilt is a reminder of how important those we hold dear are to us. Built with blocks that intertwine, they have an appearance of holding one another together as dear friends. The block is a simple 9-Patch with half-square-triangles (HST) in the corners. The block is then set on point with additional HSTs which create a braided look. Truly an exercise in color placement, you will enjoy watching each block unfold and interlock as they are sewn together.

Sunset Jewels Table Runner

The Baroque Floral fabric from the Moonlit Blooms collection is just gorgeous, simply gorgeous. Sunset Jewels Table Runner does a good job of framing it in and providing the space needed to deliver a beautiful quilt. I think its voice is loud and clear! The colors are so saturated, and the black ground gives the blooms room to speak.

It’s Catalog Proofing Time!

As you may imagine, when your company operates exclusively through a catalog and online store, the accuracy of content that we put out there is VERY important to our customers. Every four or five weeks, a team of people from Connecting Threads come together to look meticulously over the pages of our upcoming catalog, and make any last minute changes that may arise. While there are still little typos that sneak through the cracks once in a while, we do our best to make sure that every i is dotted and every t is crossed.
