My Quilts

Here you see some of my finished quilts, with links to blog posts and tutorials.  You will find more finished quilts under the "Fig Tree Harvest" tab on my blog header.

Floating, from a design by Cindy Lammon called Peppermint Float.  Finished in 2015; 81" square.

Modern Herringbone, from instructions in the June 2014 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  

Love Actually, a double wedding ring quilt made in 2014.  A double wedding ring had been on my quilt bucket list for a long time and I finally tackled it.  The curves are tricky but not impossible if you take it slowly.

Merry and Bright, a scrappy Christmas quilt I made in 2014.  The pattern is called Trellis Crossroads from the book, Modern Bee.  It is 62" by 74".

Evergreen, 62" square,and my first two-color quilt (it actually uses 3 fabrics:  one green for the stars, one green for the connecting squares, and the white background).  The original pattern is by Kim Diehl, called Twilight Hopscotch and found in her book Simple Comforts.

Rendezvous is a throw-size quilt of pineapple blocks made from the Rouenneries Deux fabric collection by French General.  No pattern, but I used a special pineapple ruler which you can read about here.  

Say Yes To The Dress, a 38" by 44" wall hanging, is hand appliqued and hand quilted.  The pattern is called Pretty Dresses and is in the book Quilting With My Sister, by Barbara Brandeburg and Teri Christopherson.  This quilt hangs in my sewing room.

Sparkle was made from a jelly roll and the Fig Tree Quilts pattern Jelly Stars.  It looks complicated but is actually quite easy.  It is 75" square.

Boughs of Holly was made in 2012 and is my favorite Christmas quilt (so far!).  I used the pattern Crossroads by Red Crinoline Quilts.  This quilt takes its name and  color inspiration from the wide striped fabric (by April Cornell) that I used for the border.  It is 70" by 80".

Christmas Stars - This is the quilt that gets the most questions from readers.  It is my design and while I don't have a pattern for it, I do have a tutorial for making the block.  The Ohio Star variation block is 10" square; the finished quilt is 66" by 78".   Pieced in 2011 and finished in 2012.
