Tulip Fields, #1401 is a fun dimensional applique, wall quilt in my pattern line. Tangled Threads Quilt Shop in Lynden, Washington, made a model for their shop. This is a close up of the cute little ladybug button they added to their wall quilt. It fits in perfectly, adding additional embellishment and interest to the quilt. The dimensional tulips are a variation of Ruched Blossoms, made with the Piecing Pals, Coin Ruched Blossom Guide TR600, from Quilting Creations International. You can find more pictures of Tulip Fields on my Facebook page and on my website. Pictures of the trunk show Tangled Threads recently hosted may be found on their Facebook photo page. Laura Estes Stencils and Coin Ruching Tools may be found on Quilting Creations International website.
I find it inspiring to see what additions quilters make to the quilts they create from my patterns. A pattern is a guideline to get you where you want to go. Unless you are a quilt shop you’re probably not going to hang the pattern up with the quilt, and even then, your ideas can provide inspiration for your customers.
Welcome to our blog. I hope you will visit us often to see what new things we are creating with Coin Ruching and other dimensional applique techniques. Each week I will give you an update on new patterns and what shops and sites are carrying them. I’ll post some photos of quick projects and some of B.J. the cat in charge, inspecting quilts for softness.
I’ll post information about events I will be speaking, demonstrating or teaching at, and if you are in those areas, I would love to meet you in person.
I welcome your applique, Coin Ruching, hand quilting and general quilting questions an comments.
Besides our extensive pattern line, Laura’s Sage Country Quilts, I design stencils and the Piecing Pals Coin Ruching Tools for Quilting Creations International. There are links on our website to a number of shops that carry our designs.
Meanwhile, Happy Stitchin.
