Farmer’s Market and Yellow Brick Road

Continuing the Etsy listing frenzy…

This first quilt is a Stripper’s Club pattern from the Quilter’s Market in Tucson, AZ (every month they give us a pattern made from 2.5″ quilt strips… what were you thinking of?). The fabric that I used by the Farmer’s Market line by RJR. I bought it for myself as a birthday present circa 2008 or so.

This next quilt is the first quilt top that I ever made. It was a class at the Quilter’s Market called Yellow Brick Road. There is now the YBR quilt patterns, but this pre-dates those. It’s made using fat quarters cut into strips. For the layout, you put all of the pieces into a bag and then randomly pull out each piece and sew. For me, who likes to know exactly where we’re going, it was a bit of a challenge, but fun. I really like how it turned out.

More cranes and finished quilts

I finished another 50 cranes. The total is up to 350 (35% of the way there!) and I’m starting to run out of space in my first display case.

I also listed 3 more quilt tops on Etsy. The first is Vice Versa which I have posted about before.

The second top is called Garden Jewels. It’s a strip pattern by the Quilter’s Market in Tucson, AZ. I bought the kit and made this top. Later, I inherited someone’s partially done quilt from the same kit and finished it. With the extra pieces from my and their kits, I made a 3rd, smaller quilt, so I’ve made this quilt 3 times. The 2nd and 3rd tops were donated to a gal who makes quilts to donate to the local hospital.

This top is called Hoopla and is also a Quilter’s Market strip pattern. It is also made from their kit which includes the die cut circles that came with fusible web on them. I blanket-stitched the applique pieces.
