Under the Big Top

Here are some more great quilts from my Brown Bagger quilting friends. This post features the bed size quilt tops and other large quilt tops that were completed recently.

I am pleased to report that Marion finally assembled the center of her Hexagon Quilt at our January Cape Cod weekend. I helped Marion mark the edges, she stay-stitched next to the line, and then she fearlessly trimmed off the edges. Next step for Marion--adding an outside border! Marion's quilt is from the book, Jelly Roll Jambalaya Quilts.
This bright and cheery quilt is guaranteed to beat the winter blues!
Here's a close-up. The hexagons are strip pieced!
Sue had fallen in love with Marion's fabric choices and was using them to make a different quilt. Sue's quilt is the scrappy version of Terry Atkinson's pattern, Morning Noon & Night. I believe the fabric line is from Marcia Derse.
Sue's quilt is as bright as her smile!
Pat assembled her lovely Kaffe Fassett Winter Trees. Pat was inspired by a quilt that Kim G. had made at a previous quilt weekend.
This quilt is too pretty just to be hung in the winter. I think that Pat will need to hang it up year round.
The trees are dimensional, using a Cathedral Window technique.
Joan S. assembled her scrappy Scrappy Trips Around the World, a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter's website. I am also working on one of these quilts. You can see some of my blocks in this post.
Joan dug into her scraps to make this lovely quilt top.
Here's a close-up of the wonderful fabrics she used.
And last, but not least, Cordula finished her Kaffe Fassett Chinese Coins Quilt top.
Cordula's blue/green sashing really made the colors in her quilt pop!
Lots more photos to share. Come back soon!

Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,

  1. Wow so many beautiful quilts. Is Marion's hexagon quilt the one that can cover the land yacht? It is big.
