MCM #43 – Trunk Full of Quilts 2015


Welcome! Today I’m excited to join in all the fun going on over at Whims and Fancies online trunk show and share some of my favorite quilts. It was so fun to look back at all the quilts I’ve made in the past two years and I want to thank Soma for hosting the trunk show. Be sure to visit her blog and check out all the quilts that have been linked up. There is a lot of eye candy going on over there! And there is still time for you to join in the fun – the trunk show runs through Nov. 18th.

And now, on with the show! You can click on the picture to be taken to the blog post that gives more info for each of the quilts.

First is a wallhanging I made as a gift. While making this quilt I had no idea how it would look when it was finished because I didn’t follow a pattern.  After piecing the middle block, the rest of the quilt was totally improv. I am very happy with the way it finished.

The next quilt combines one of my favorite quilt blocks, the churn dash, with a beautiful fabric line. I call it “New Beginnings”.

This next quilt took me out of my comfort zone by using a chocolate brown as a background fabric. I paired it with a couple of Trail Mix charm packs and really love the look of this quilt. This was also a gift made for a very special little boy.

The next quilt is one I made for donation. The bright colors just scream happy to me. It was one of my fastest finishes ever. 🙂

Summertime Sizzler

This D9P was made using all 30’s prints. It was the first D9P I ever made and I fell in love with it. It was very difficult to give away!

When I bought a layer cake by Fig Tree & Co. I wanted a quilt that would show off all those great prints without having to cut them too small. I chose to make an hourglass quilt that I called Timeless. This was also the first quilt I used a black/white print binding on and I love the way it frames the quilt.

The next quilt is made from two easy blocks and when they are together they look so good! I call it Checkered Past and use this quilt a lot. It just makes me happy to cuddle up with it. 🙂

The last two quilts are quilts I designed and wrote patterns for this year, so I’m pretty psyched about them. The first is “Floating”……

…….and the most recent is Snap, Crackle, Pop!

    Eclectic is such a good word for your quilting. =) I enjoyed seeing all these quilts, some of them again and some for the first time. I love churn dash – my second favorite block – so that one really made me smile, and I still like your Checkered Past. Well, really, I like them all!

    I love the D9P in ’30s fabrics! It reminds me of quilts my grandmother made. 🙂

  11. Great quilts! I really like the colors in the Churn Dash quilt and “Checkered Past”! Something about the block in the grid is so graphically wonderful! Cheers!

  12. lapaylor says:

    checkered past really is dynamic. It might be my fave of the ones you showed. I am having a great time seeing style emerge from these quilters as they show a body of work. I see that you enjoy piecing, and symetry, and geometry along with colors! LeeAnna

    You have a real talent for designing quilts. That was evident from your very first quilt.Snap, Crackle, Pop is a fun and interesting quilt, Thanks for the great trunk show!

  14. I really love Foating, nice graphic design!

  15. Kim Sharman says:

    Your trunk show is filled with gorgeousness!! Your Snap, Crackle and Pop and Floating quilts ooze cleverness and beauty. Funnily enough, I too am fashioning a quilt with those darling 1930 fabrics. Love the fabrics you chose for your Churn Dash; great colours and using the chocolate brown fabric on your Trail Mix charm pack quilt was inspired. I have loved drinking in all the beauty of your amazing quilts!
