12 Days of Christmas Napkins 12 Days of Christmas Napkins
By: Joey Nakagawa, Arizona, USA

My sister gave me a package of 12 Days of Christmas Napkins suggesting I could turn them into a quilt. But the picture in one corner was right side up and upside down in the other. I cut the napkins in half diagonally replacing the upper half with half square triangles in Christmas prints.

Dance Studios Dance Studios
By: Lindy, Washington, USA

I took a class is design recently. While laying squares on my wild flannel board I had an ‘ah hah’ moment. I don’t ‘do’ geometric shapes, but sure had fun playing with this. It is finished, but still might get a ribbon-bedecked hanging rod and more roof decor. Flannel, hand dyes, satin stitch. Play!

Lillian Rose's Lillies & Roses Lillian Rose’s Lillies & Roses
By: thePieceCorps, Colorado, USA

I started creating this quilt as a challenge for myself to use fat quarters only for the main part of the quilt. When my grandaughter Lillian Rose was born 4 Jan 2011, I knew the quilt was just for her! I like baby quilts to be bright and have a lot of contrast.

Primarily Stars Primarily Stars
By: Linda Duncan, Iowa, USA

While this is an easy quilt, by the time I had cut 640 half square triangles and then assembled them, I was pretty sick of triangles! However the effect is awesome and makes for an outstanding quilt. I tried to swear off triangles but they keep coming back!!

The quilt pattern is the simple half square triangle … hst’s are so easy and lend themselves to many striking patterns.

The The “dude”-quilt
By: Agneta Ekholm, Sweden

I was playing around with triangles made out of strips with three different fabrics, and all of a sudden I realized that making a kind of staircase, and letting small black men – dudes – climb up or just hang around would make the quilt great!

Triangle Inheritance Triangle Inheritance
By: Charlotte, Ontario, Canada

These triangles were all cut by my friend’s grandmother. My friend had enough of using triangles and passed these on to me. I played around with the triangles until I was happy with the result. The fabric was quite old and getting matching fabric was a challenge but I love the way it turned out.

By: Kathy Gabrysch, Virginia, USA

This was made for a nephew. It has browns and golds from my moms 70’s stash. I love this patten and have made it many times. It always excites me with all the different arrangements possible. I intended to be random but in the end created diamonds and stars.

    I am looking for a Blue Hill reproduction fabric by Sara Morgan to finish my paper piecing quilt. The fabric is called Gettysburg Rememberance. Its a small brown tonal flower and squiggle. The flower has a blue dot in the center. I hope that someone has some of this fabric that I may purchase.
