More Hoffman Challenge Eye Candy Quilts

If you didn't see my original blog post about the terrifically talented Pratt sisters, go right back here and read it now. Both Kim and Karen use the Hoffman Challenge as an opportunity to try out new quilting tools and techniques.

This post is the sequel, containing Kim's previous Hoffman Challenge entries. To see her sister Karen's previous entries in the Hoffman Challenge, visit Karen's website here.
Kim's 1999 entry, Starburst, which is paper pieced.
Kim's 2003 entry, Cherry Blossom Festival, her own design.
Kim's 2004 entry, An American Symbol, featuring fusible applique.
This pattern was designed by my friends Kim G. and Lynne G.
Kim's 2006 entry, Cats in Baskets, which is paper pieced and has free motion applique.
The pattern is Peekaboo Cats by Love Quilt Patterns.

Kim's 2007 entry, In the Garden. This quilt is a traditional design featuring curved piecing.
Kim's 2008 entry, Endless Ribbons. This quilt is heavily quilted with a
mirror image of the leaf design and uses the Xblock ruler.
Kim's 2012 entry, Branching Out, an original pattern by her sister Karen.
This quilt features a hand embroidered tree with hand buttonhole applique and buttons.
You can purchase this pattern here at QuiltLily Designs.
I hope that Kim and Karen's quilts have inspired you to enter the next Hoffman Challenge! The quilting gauntlet (aka white glove) has been thrown!

Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,

  1. Very pretty. Love the mix of traditional blocks but also applique, and modern techniques.
