Sherry's Half Square Triangle Quilt, featuring 'Boltz' robot pattern

'Boltz' Robot pattern designed by Patricia Ritter

I like to spend time adding photos to my website, so that my customers can see what digital quilting patterns I have and how they look on an actual quilt.  Sherry took the time to view my Pinterest page before she dropped off her quilt and had spotted this Robot pattern called 'Boltz'.  I think this pattern is really fun, but besides a few charity Linus Quilts, I haven't had many opportunities to stitch it out.

Here is the pattern stitched out on her Half Square Triangle quilt. Sherry managed to squeeze in loads of novelty fabrics and the Robots were just another fun element.We used a bright yellow Glide thread called Split Pea.  A great way to see the digital quilting pattern on a  quilt is to use a plain  fabric for the backing, so that, in this case, you would have a whole cloth quilt featuring Robots!
If you have theme, or idea for a quilt pattern, please ask me.  I have a selection of novelty patterns which have not reached my website yet and beyond that there are thousands of patterns available on the internet.

Interwoven Stars Quilt, made by Hilary, featuring Moxie Quilt Pattern

Another large quilt which has been made during lockdown.  This Interwoven Stars quilt, made by Hilary, is 92" x 105" and ready with its binding  to be put on the bed.  There are just three solid fabrics used in this quilt and it made a great canvas for a bold quilt pattern.

I will admit that I do love a pink, green, cream colour combination, however, if you pop over to a previous Fabadashery post from this time last year, you will see that Sian did the same quilt in a completely different colour way.  Sian and Hilary are a mother and daughter team who provide quilting classes in the South Wales area.

The pattern which Fabadashery Longarm quilting used to quilt this was called Moxie designed by Patricia Ritter and Leisha Farnsworth, again, one of my favourites which I have used on my own quilts as well as for customers.

Coming up roses - Wendy's rose quilt

One thing I have been admiring during my lockdown walks are the lovely roses which we are enjoying in our gardens this year.  When Wendy sent through her lovely quilt made from a pre-cut, there were roses all over it, so choosing this new Rose Garden pattern was a natural choice.

This is a photo from the back with the pattern stitched out.  I still think we will have many more weeks where we will be able to enjoy our summer flowers.

Another chance to try out a new digital quilting pattern which has recently been added to my pattern catalogue, this time on a soft blue Disappearing Nine Patch mini quilt.

The patter is called 'Clover', which is like a shamrock quilting pattern.  It stitches out nicely and I can see it is going to be popular with my quilting customers.
