    Talking Woven Ribbons, Spanish Tiles & Hullabaloo

    Woven Ribbons is a pattern by Jinny Beyer that uses over 120 fabrics. I have donated this quilt to the autism organization that has helped my son for many years. They will auction it off to raise money for the 800 children and adults that they serve. My son is now 18 and working full time after completing high school. Yeah!

    The second quilt pattern is Spanish Tiles by Heather Peterson. I enjoyed using some of my favorite Kaffe Fassett fabrics in this quilt.

    The third quilt is much too busy for my taste, but my 20 year old daughter chose the pattern and fabrics and loves it. The pattern is Hullabaloo by Kara Alexander.

    My quilt inspector seems to be sleeping on the job.

    All very nice, I especially like the first one!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I LOVE Spanish Tiles! I have been collecting stunning Oriental fabrics for a while (mostly in red tones) that I have been saving for just the right project-I JUST FOUND IT! Do you mind telling me where you got the pattern? If it was in a magazine, which one and which issue. I have a huge collection of magazines so I may have it. Thanks! BTW, I'll take the version with the pussy cat!!

    All three quilts are beautiful, but the first one is really outstanding. I hope it raises a ton of money for the autism organization. Your quilt inspector apparently loves your Spanish Tiles quilt! Great job on all of them.

    Spanish Tiles pattern is in the Living Large 2 book I bought at a LQS. Here it is on Amazon.
