Nuts About!!! Applique and Piece Patterns

Welcome to Day 3 of the Nut's About ? Blog Hop.  I'm Nuts About combining Applique and Piecing Patterns.  I have always had a love of designing these type of patterns which goes back well before, I started my business.

The first pattern I designed as a Applique and Piece pattern, was what I called my Tulip Quilt.  This pattern was designed in EQ7 with some of the templates includes with the software. This gorgeous quilt top was made in bright pinks and greens.  The leave borders was an after thought and was not in my original design.  The vines where made from Sue Pelland leave and stems templates. 

After finishing this quilt I entered it in the Charles County Fair and won Best in Show.  I not yet developed the pattern for this quilt, maybe some day I will have to do that.

My next quilt I that I would like to share is an Applique and Piecing quilt that was an original design by my mother in law, Diane Dillard and myself.  "Hearts Delight", pattern was our first Applique and Piecing quilt we did together and has become one of our most popular quilt patterns.  This two color pattern combined with one panel of Applique hearts and vines makes this a beautiful quilt.  The pieced blocks are a variation of the churn dash.  This quilt measure at 59 1/2" x 70", making a great wallhanging or lap quilt.
Hearts Delight
My absolute favorite combination quilt pattern I have designed is "Lilies in the Wind".  This quilt was developed with Batiks fabrics in mind.  I designed all the piece blocks and the layout.  Once I had the layout, I noticed it need some applique.  I played with a few ideas, but was not happy with it.  So I then contacted my Mother in law, Diane and she came up with the applique pieces and border.  From what she gave me I modified the sizes and and the borders to my liking.  The quilt measures 50" x 50" when finished.

My most recent Applique and piecing combination design is my 2016 Block of the Month, "Dance with Me". This will be my first pattern combination quilt top I have designed specifically for a Block of the Month.  If you would like more information on this quilt just click HERE.

Three Witches Brew - Halloween Haunt Blog Hop



Today is the second day of the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop and also my day to show you  two exciting Halloween patterns I developed this year.
For my latest pattern, I had a a lot fun and inspiration in it's development. This pattern is now available on my website as an e-pattern only. The paper version will start shipping October 29. The inspiration comes from my two best friends, we are always up to something mischievous when we see each other, so I came up with this cute pattern called “Three Witches Brew” to celebrate our get together.
 
“Three Witches Brew” is my first fully designed applique using EQ7.  Normally, in the designing we start with pencil and paper then scan and trace in Adobe Illustrator.
   “Three Witches Brew”, is an easy raw edge applique pattern.  This pattern doesn’t rely  on Halloween fabrics, but it would look really cute them.  I designed the pattern to use mostly Moda basics, but you can really use anything you have in the scrap bin. The project finishes at 35” x 35”. 
“Haunted Manor”, is the next pattern I would like to show you.  This design was first created a couple years ago as a machine embroidery project.  I didn’t like how it was turning out, so I put it away until this year.  Finally with some several different try’s, I came up with this project.
The pattern is an easy quilt that can be a great way to use up your leftover Halloween scraps.  It is also a great weekend project that finishes at 35” x 29” and a great way to liven up the holiday.
