Quilt for Allegra

Allegra’s Quilt

This quilt was made for a longtime friend’s daughter for her college graduation. It was made from a careful selection of her childhood clothes. There were lots of incredible trim and other details on the pieces used in the quilt, so the resulting design looks very much like a crazy quilt, full of embroidery, trim, and carefully cut trims. I used my Ruby Ruler™ throughout the process of designing this quilt.

Portal V2

Portal is a modern interpretation of the classic Attic Windows Quilt Block. Pattern available in my shop. Dividing chosen fabrics into 3 color value groups using my Ruby Ruler™ creates the optical illusion of looking through a deep window.

Skiddy

Inspired by a rather strangely constructed 1970’s quilt top purchased at auction. I spent many many hours playing with the design and trying to understand how it could have been constructed. I’m not sure I ever figured it out. But in the process, I created Skiddy. Grab the pattern in my shop. Then grab your precuts and other favorites from your fabric stash and watch this pattern come together like magic.

Rojas

The Rojas quilt is a study in controlled scrappy, designed using my Ruby Ruler™ to divide lots of different, unrelated fabrics into color value groups. The pattern for this quilt is available as a PDF download or printed paper pattern in my shop.

Portal Quilt

The design for this quilt was inspired by the Spring 2020 fabric collection “Stellar” by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Ruby Star Society. It uses a complete fat quarter set of the the entire line. Riffing off of vintage spool and attic window quilts, the success of this design relies on dividing lots of fabrics into either a dark or light color value stack. The sides of each block are a darker value than the top and bottom, these are the lightest values in each block. The center square is the darkest, the “portal”.

Want to make your own Portal Quilt? The complete pattern is available here.  I recommend using my Ruby Ruler™ to look through at your fabric selections throughout the design process, it helps you discern dark and light values.
