Quilt News! Saw Tooth Border Experiments, 16 Patch Blocks, AHIQ Yellow Challenge? 3 Pinwheels Sampler Finish! Seattle in September

More experiments in arranging the sawtooth border.

Start on 16 Patch blocks, 4 here.

Did someone say Yellow, as in a new AHIQ Challenge?

We visited Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle last week.

I hand quilted 3 Pinwheels Sampler Quilt.

My 3 Pinwheels Sampler with binding pinned on, 21"x 30".


Quilt News from the Pacific NW where sunny weather prevails!

Last week we visited the Pike Place Market and enjoyed the flowers, fruits and vegetables in the farmer's market and bought gourmet cheese and some kitchen supplies.

And I finished hand quilting my 3 Pinwheels Sampler Quilt and finished hand stitching the binding on.
I used left over blocks and pieces from other projects and just kept arranging and adding or subtracting parts until I liked how it looked.

My Saw Tooth border small quilt is in the design and experiment stage. I'm using left over blocks and pieces from other projects and enjoying the challenge. The question that needs to be answered with this project is what is the main idea, the focus? Do I want the saw tooth border to be the focus? Making a commitment on size will also help. I like setting boundaries because then I know what areas have to be filled.
Make sure and stop by Beth Shibley's fun quilt tutorials on YouTube and visit her blog @

That's the news from the valley where I'm enjoying cooler weather and farmer's markets.
Remembering to be thankful and I'll be by to visit.

Your hand quilting makes the quilts exceptionally beautiful.
As for the saw tooth quilt, if you keep the smaller triangles in the centre, where they are, they stand out in spite of their size. Why? Because of the striking red. So even if you place the larger triangles on a sawtooth edge they are not overpowering the quilt.

Lovely flowers and a good day out at the market.

Your hand quilting on the Pin Wheels sampler is great, adds beautiful texture. Love what you're doing with the sawtooth border, looks a perfect addition an 16 patch blocks are always winners!
