Turning 20 with Faded Memories

A new quilt is loaded on Taloulabelle's long arm. I love the process of selecting the thread color and deciding the stitching design. It's a challenge to determine what is going to compliment the quilt and the quilter. I want my work to blend with the work of the quilter and to bring out a new facet of the design.
This pattern is Turning 20! It is an amazingly simple pattern. It's fun to piece from a variety of fat quarters. Whether you chose a line of fabric or allow yourself the freedom to mix and match fabrics, the quilt will be fabulous. This is a terrific pattern to raid your stash with. It's easily enlarged by adding borders or increasing the number of fat quarters; try 30 or 42!

Check out the other patterns being offered in the Turning 20 series. You will not be disappointed.

Barb, from Des Moines, Iowa, chose a line called Faded Memories from Moda. It is a soft, delicate line that makes this quilt look very old fashioned yet has a splash of comtempory design tossed in to a few of the pieces in the line.

I chose an all over floral stitching design using light yellow thread. I call this pattern Greta's Garden. I charge 1 1/2 cents per square inch to stitch this design on your quilt.

Until next time ... Make every day an adventure in fabric and thread!

Beautiful quilt...I love Moda's Faded Memories line! "Greta's Garden" was a wonderful design choice. Taloulabelle's long arm has been busy lately!
