Designing Quilts Again

I just began quilting after a 23 year break. My daughter passed January 9, 2014 so I began making memory quilts for her boys. The process has been very good for me. Time to remember, reflect, and pray.

I’ve been frustrated finding fabric. I decided to make some of my digital papers into fabric to quilt. It is very, very expensive to make a design into fabric. So I’m taking my time planning. Below are patterns I’ve been playing with.

Ava Rose patterns from Project Life cards  look lovely in a tulip block.

Strawberry Melon papers  made an interesting log cabin block.

Here is one layout how it would look quilted.

I used Green and Gray patterns for a  simple block

Alternating the block gives a tumbling block look.

Navy and Pink patterns from Cynthia Digital Papers make a unique Ohio Star Block.
