Some More QUILTS

I made this several years ago for my Adult Step Daughter who lives in Arizona. A hot tropic riot of color.  I love making curve quilts they are super super easy - I have a tutorial over at Flickr of how I do it. No pins, just good clean fun. When ever I need an easy win, I make one of these.  The bigger the pieces, the easier it is.  If you'd made garments or set a sleeve, you already know how its done. 
I like Eliza's Back Porch template set - this one is 6" quarters. 
 Modern Butterfly
This is my first quilt published in a magazine - Generation Q.  I'm excited. I'm Proud. I feel like its a goal realized.this is a pieced improv curve design

The Dishes Can Wait:

 This quilt was featured in GenQ magazine and after I pieced the background I appliqued pre turned "dishes" to the top with my machine. no fusible, no raw edges. The balls are hand appliqued.

Bowls and Balls #2
This quilt looks so much like the one above but its all free pieced curves (not appliqued)  and the balls are hand appliqued.  The picture shows it hanging at Modern Domestic in Portland.  The Portland Modern Quilt Guild had an exhibit at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. The Guild Members compete to get into the show and after Sisters the PMQG quilts went to Modern Domestic to hang for several weeks. After the blocks are made, and they are all different sizes,  I pieced it together and after the top/background was done I added the balls to the top.

No one seems to care. There are many requests for the pattern to Fun Patch and not one request has been answered.

Strange that I was directed to your site for a tutorial on Fun Patch quilts. I've just scrolled through all your blogs and never saw a mention or picture of one. How odd!!! Too bad, since there seems to be some interest... and no, the templates are no longer available.
