    Pam Bono, Crows in the Corn

    This book has been in my collection for many years and I have wanted to do several of the patterns. A recent conversation led me to this.
    the book:

    Title: Corn Maze for a Blonde

    Name:  DSC05581.JPG
Views: 4391
Size:  273.5 KB

    This is my first attempt at doing one of her patterns from this book and I must say, it wasn't the easiest thing to do.
    The directions call for cutting the whole pattern at one time and to figure out what I needed for one part of the whole thing took some time.

    Once again I am grinning at the result. I will mimic the corn stalk for the quilting.
    Hope it makes you laugh.
    peace

    Very nice work. Her patterns are fantastic and its true that patience is needed with the piecing! Your "Crows" is very nice! I've done the Sunflower pattern on the cover of the book plus another. One more is on my bucket list!

    The secret of a Pam Bono pattern is to follow the instructions to the letter and keep all the pieces in marked baggies. She used so many pieces it is hard not to get confused but once done you have a really beautiful quilt. I once messaged her I felt I needed an Engineering degree to do one of her quilts. She laughed.

    Cute quilt! Can't believe someone donated on of her books to GW. Saw it and went to reach for it. Someone else's arm was longer than mine. So was her tongue! LOL! Yep she stuck her tongue out at me like: na na na na na na! Oh Well! I'll get one on another day!

    you did a great job on this. I also have the book and have made a twin truck pattern from it for my grandson and he loves it. It was pretty easy for me. I want to do more out of this book but have not got back to them. Your project reminded me of it. jan

    I'd call it Totally Corny. Very cute quilt. I have a couple of her books but not that one. I have her "Baltimore Album" quilt about half done. Big blocks but so many pieces.

    Nice work. I have that book, but haven't made any quilts from it, as I've found her directions to not always be very clear. There are a couple that I would like to make from that book though.

    That maze is pretty darned amazing. Love the cornstalk and the background fabric. Like your idea for mimicking the corn stalk for the quilting.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Cute Quilt. I love her designs, have quite a few, and will be trying some of them in the near future (after 4 memory quilts are done). She will be greatly missed!

    Cute!!! I love some of her designs. But, the cutting process intimidates me!

    Very cute, I love it. Like most patchworkers I also have quite a few of her books, I have made Colorado Stars, Out of the Darkness and last September my DD and I made Butterflies are Free. She will be sadly missed.
