Default Pine Cone Quilts

I am new to Pine Cone Quilts. This is patience! Betty Ford's Purple Quilt is beautiful.

There is a free block to learn the Pine Cone Quilt.

Those quilts are really something, she said some weigh 20lbs. Wow!

I might have to make a small one 30 x 30 just to hang on the wall. Thanks for the link.

​I like the pine cone Christmas ornaments but I don’t think a quilt is on my future.

that would be a good candidate for quilt as you go.

if the prairie points were stitched down facing in the opposite direction, i'll bet it would like like a dahlia, a mum, or a zinnia.

note to self ...

I am doing the BOM from the National Quilt Museum and just finished the Pine Cone block from Betty Ford-Smith tutorial. It does make a heavy block but is not that hard and they look fantastic. Here is the block I did. Not sure how something like this can be quilted but I guess we will find out in March.

Beautiful sJens! Love the color combo. Did it take a lot of fabric and how big is your block?

I just signed up and getting ready to try this block before I think about an entire quilt.

QueenbarbieJ, the blocks are cut 4" X 4" and folded into triangles. I believe in the 10.5 block there are 100 or more 4 X 4 blocks depending on how it was put together. It is quite heavy and seems like it will not be easy to do any quilting on. I think that Betty Ford-Smith uses the stitches that she sews the triangles down with as her quilting. It was a fun block to put together and learn the history of. Another National Quilt Museum BOM will start in April for those interested. Just be able to like being puzzled at how everything will fit together. All of the blocks in this BOM were 10.5.
