At Least My Quilt Gets to be at Market

MooseQuilts

A few months ago I realized that I was not going to Fall Market this year. I have felt good about this decision until yesterday. Now I miss being in Houston. I am, however, happy that two of my quilts are there without me!

Both quilts are hanging in the Timeless Treasures booth. The first one us a free download on the Timeless Treasures website. I call this quilt Rawhide.

I love the tan background fabric. It looks like tooled leather to me. For some reason the diamond pattern also reminded me of leather. Thus, the name Rawhide. The link it here: http://www.ttfabrics.com/projects/tonga-capri-rawhide/

The second one is called Midwest Memories. This pattern is available for pre-order on my website. http://www.moosequilts.com/single-patterns/midwestmemories.html

I was shown this fabric shortly after returning from a road trip to Spring Market in Pennsylvania. The fabric reminded me of the farmland that we drove through. I designed this quilt thinking about the vast and beautiful countryside we drove though and the wonderful people we met as we stopped at quilt shops along the way. I have posted a few pictures on instagram (@moosequilts) along the way.

My favorite part is the barn.midwestmemories3


No, make that the pinwheel border. Well, maybe the windmill. Okay, it’s too hard to pick a favorite part. This quilt had some challenges figuring out how to make the blocks. It was fun to see them come together as I envisioned.
