Big Quilting Update!


Waaaaaaaayyyy back in February, or maybe it was even January, Heather sent me some photos of quilts she was working on.  I immediately texted her and asked if I could please test some of them!!!  By the next day, I had copies of several of the patterns.  I started with Petals on a String.

Please go over to Heather’s blog, Anka’s Treasures, and take a look at her photos.  They are so much better!

I got a big surprise earlier this week when I was cruising though Instagram.  My quilt is on the cover of her new book, Angles With Ease 2.

I also tested Radiant.  I absolutely love this quilt!!!

The fabric is Moxi, a new line from Moda.  My plan with this one is to put an applique border on it with some bold flowers.  I can’t ever just leave something alone!

I also pieced another quilt for her that I forgot to photograph, so I’ll save that for another post.

Heather’s book, Angle’s with Ease 2, will be available soon.  I love every quilt in the book.  You’re going to want it!

And now I’m going to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.  It’s that sunshine that made the first quilt very hard to photograph!

  1. Beautiful! Just love Heather’s quilts… and yours. How lucky for you that you get to test them! So glad you showed Radiant unquilted, It helps show how the blocks are constructed, and somehow makes it less intimidating. Love your blog, even though I don’t knit or spin.

  2. You know I love everything you make! I must say that “Petals on a String” may be the best, ever quilt. I think I’m fascinated by the contrast of the shapes of the pieces and the patterns of the quilting… Love your work so much, Maria.

  3. Beautiful quilts! You do great work….I’m so envious! Always love seeing your pictures.

  4. Hope you’re Ok. I miss your blog and am sending you warm wishes for Christmas and every blessing for the new year.
