Show and tell

In the last couple of weeks since I posted my Trade Winds and Stars pattern on Moda Bake Shop, two quilters have contacted me to tell me they have made the quilt. I cannot tell you how exciting this is. Firstly, because it's my first pattern ever, and secondly because the pattern as written didn't send them to the loony bin with the confusion it could have created (I worry about these things, late at night).

Deborah from Simply Miss Luella made her quilt using Anna Maria Horner Loulouthi fabric using 6 inch square instead of charms. I love this quilt so much! Especially the white border with the coloured binding.

Isn't it beautiful? So summery and fun. You can read more about Deborah's quilt here and here.

Anne Marie From Anne Marie's Quilt made her version of the quilt using three charm packs of Sweetwater Reunion. It is so different to my original pink version, and it goes to show that this pattern is good for any fabric you choose.

I can't stop looking at Ann Marie's quilt. It has a really lovely nautical feel, and see that inner border of bunting? I love that! You can read more about Anne Marie's quilt here and here.

Thanks to Deborah and Anne Marie for letting me know about their quilts, and for agreeing to let me use their photos. Best of all I've met two lovely women via email, and now have two new inspiring quilting blogs to read.


  1. Congratulations! I can imagine how satisfying that is to have people so inspired by your pattern that they spend all that effort into making one of your designs! And thanks for sharing their photos and blogs!! I love finding new blogs to add to my reading!

  2. look at all that inspiration you have given people !!! What a great feeling it is, and how much fun is it to see your vision come back a bit the same but so very different. It excites the crap out of me.

  3. Hi thanks for making the pattern and sharing at Moda Bakeshop !!
    And thanks for showing my quilt at your blogg. I am making the happy dance ;-))

  4. It's so fantastic to see other people making your design!
    I love looking at quilts using different ranges of fabrics. It's amazing how the same design can look completely different.

  5. I agree with the others, must be a great feeling to see others enjoying your pattern. Plus the fun of seeing the different variations.


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments, but if you're anonymous please tell me who you are.
