    2 Quilts with large patterns

    These two quilts are both made from patterns that are really great for large prints or fabrics you just don't want to cut into small pieces. These are both sandwiched and ready for FMQing. Hope to have them finished tomorrow. I forgot to mention that the Rose Trellis quilt pattern was found when I searched for 'garden trellis quilts'. The koi pattern was found on The Quilt Haus website.

    What superb quilts! Did you overlay the boxes and strips on the beautiful prints?

    Cleodaisy, The Koi quilt was cut into strips and sewn together, pieced at top and bottom to make them the right length. The Rose Trellis quilt was a rectangle approx 27" x 34". I made the bias and just sewed it onto the rectangle. Very easy, you could make this any size you wanted.

    Since I love flowers the first one is my favorite. Did you applique the flowers at the corners or is that part of the original fabric pattern?

    Both are looking great and nice, but i like the first one more and more. Because i like the flower type designs quilts. That is looking fabulous and fantastic.

    You are so clever! I have a couple of lovely fabrics that I have not cut into, so I can see a quilt in my future! Good job.

    Both look great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
