Still More Quilt Projects from Cape Cod, Part 3

I spent part of my weekend lusting after Marion's beautiful 40 Fat Quarter quilt. To her surprise, she finished the final two panels and assembled this beauty. You can find this pattern, called Scrappy Bargello, for free on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville website here. I've made this pattern before, and I am definitely making another one!

Borders still to come!
The quilt started off being black and white with a splash of turquoise and pink to liven it up. Looks like the turquoise and pink kind of took over. I love it and Marion is happy with it too. This is the third 40 Fat Quarter quilt that she's made using her stash of Reproduction fabrics, with no visible end in sight.

Next, Marion went to work on her Kaffe Fassett quilt that we started in his workshop last Fall. She's got the first half sewn together and is working on the second half. Keep on reading and you can see Joan S.'s version in a completely different colorway further down in this blog post.

Layout in progress. Yummy Kaffe Fassett fabrics!

Surprisingly, Joannie made no place mats this weekend. Instead, she put the final quilting and the binding on a quilt that her sister started over sixteen years ago. It was intended to be a high school graduation gift for her son. Now, it is going to be a wedding gift instead. Thanks to Joannie, it is finally finished!
This is also a Trip Around the World pattern, like the one
I showed you in my previous post about Eleanor's Christmas quilt.
It is done in all sports fabric. See below for some detail.

Joannie also turned a book panel into a throw quilt for her daughter Jill.
The amazing Pratt sisters were also hard at work. Kim P. devoted herself to one project.
One block down, 41 more to go!
This star quilt is going to be a gift for a
co-worker's granddaughter.

Kim is working with all of these wonderful pinks and purples!
Karen showed off some new projects that we hadn't seen before. To see more of Karen's work or purchase her patterns, you can visit her website, her Etsy Shop and her Facebook page.

I didn't know that Karen was a fellow Judy Niemeyer enthusiast!
I was flattered when she said that my blog posts about my Bali BedRunner
had inspired her to dig out this old project to finish it. Unfortunately she left
the border kit at home. Isn't this spectacular? Don't you want to make one now?

This is one of Karen's original designs, called
Star Passion. You can purchase the pattern here.

Designed by Karen's friend Cindy, this may become
a new QuiltLily pattern in 2014.

This is Karen's newest pattern. It isn't on her website yet.
Joan S. also was working on her Kaffe workshop quilt. She had the center finished and added the borders.

Joan's quilt looks bright and summery with
its yellow border. I want this one too!

Another one of Joan's projects. I think she was getting ready to
add the binding. This quilt has a nice masculine feel.

Joan is making her next quilt out of scraps from previous projects
using light and dark triangles. She had it up on the design wall and
it is going to be stunning. She pulled it down before I could get a photo.
Lots more still to come! We were a productive bunch and I took A LOT of photos.

Pugs and kisses,
