Finished Quilt Tops!

Posted on March 17th, by Amy in Modern Basics, work in progress. 18 comments

I should probably share these on different days, but I’m too excited!

I have two tops from Modern Basics again – first, Posie Patch:

Posie Patch was made for my local quilt shop, Seasons of Home in Midway.  The shop is making kits available for a class that I get to teach, and HMQS coming in May!  We also set up a trunk show for the entire month of April, complete with a Open House/Book Signing on April 9, 2-5 pm.

The class will be split into two evenings so that we can work on basic piecing, and later appliqué together.  I can put you in touch with the shop if you are interested in signing up – just leave a comment!

I also pieced Basic Puzzle in Calypso Swing:

This one is smaller than what is made in the book,  I had the fat quarters from Mark and Cara and thought this pattern was a great fit.  I love it in prints just as much as the solids!

That’s what I’ve been up to!

I started a flickr group for Modern Basics.  If you have my book and make a quilt from it – share it!

Can’t wait to see -

  1. Love seeing your quilts in a variety of fabrics and colors! How fun to have the Posie Patch made into quilts for a class. Sounds like a perfect arrangement – piecing in one session and applique in another.

  2. Hi Amy,
    love the quilt! I purchased some calypso and really love the fabric; however, haven’t had a chance to cut it yet….maybe it’s too pretty to cut! I love what you’ve done with yours…nice!


  3. THe quilts are great. I especially love the pink and gray one. I am starting to see this color combination every once and a while and I like it a lot.

  4. My eyes keep going back to the 2nd photo in this post. The middle flower almost looks as though it has a face…look below the large circle. You see one eye wide open and the other one is “winking” at you, the nose is the small rosebud and the mouth/smile is the leaves. The large circle could almost be a hat, and the blue dropping down beside it could be a lock of hair. It just jumped right off the screen at me, and I’m surprised more people haven’t seen it. Am I just crazy??? dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com
