Welcome to Quiltmaker’s Treasure Hunt!
Today’s featured sponsor is Red Rooster Fabrics.
A Few of Red Rooster’s Favorite Things
Attic Treasures by Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs was inspired by her love of classic home decor, interior design, and color. The focal fabric features beautiful roses fresh from the garden, delicate buds, yellow blossoms, and pale green leaves on a ground of creamy beige or soft blue. Like real roses, this style of floral print is a perennial favorite with quiltmakers, wearable arts fans, accessory makers, and embellishers.
Gerri designed and pieced this charming 54″ x 62″ quilt using Attic Treasures.
Nice People, Nice Things
The Nice People Nice Things collection by author and award-winning machine quilter Helen Stubbings celebrates family, friends, and lots of favorite things. With 28 framed images to choose from, there’s something nice on this panel for everyone! Just select the people and things that are meaningful to you, and use them in your projects.
This 54″ x 63″ quilt was designed and made by Helen and machine quilted by Tracey Browning of Constantine Quilts. Helen has provided a full-size hexagon template for her large hexies. All you need to do is iron fusible web to the prints you select, cut them to template size, space them 1″ apart, and fuse them to the background. A free pattern is available through Red Rooster.
Red Rooster is pleased to introduce Susan Marth, their newest designer and the founder of Suzn Quilts. About her first fabric collection, Susan says, “My Vintage Play fabric line was inspired by two of my favorite things – children and vintage finds. I love the colors of the 30′s and 40′s and have had fun collecting toys and household items from that time period. It just made sense that my first line of fabric for Red Rooster would incorporate these two things.”
Susan also designed the Vintage Play quilt. She offers instructions for both a 12-block and a 20-block version. Frame the fussy cut blocks from the panel with flying geese units to make 12″ star blocks. This pattern will be available in quilt shops in November and December 2013.
