We love our renters. They bring in such lovely quilts. The one downfall for me is after seeing all these lovely quilts I now have a long list of quilts that I have to make now. I don’t know if it’s the colors or the piecing that draws my eyes more. You can tell me exactly what makes them so pretty. This is a renter roundup of some of my favorites over the last couple of months.
First up in the renter roundup: A Bright 16 Patch
This is a fun quilt by Leann. The bold gray lines behind the bright sixteen patches are what catch my eye. I love the effect. The contrast between the colors and the gray allow that secondary on point design to really pop out. Leann decided to quilt this with an all over meander. It is a great way to add quilting without fighting your piecing design. Great job, Leann.
One Block Wonder Snoopy Style
I’ve seen a lot of really beautiful one block wonders, but I’d never seen a truly cute and fun one before this walked in the door. Shawn brought this so she could quilt it with our Intelliquilter. The pattern is called Hippie love and I think fits the vibe of the quilt completely. One block wonders are often made of only one fabric, and this clearly had several. I love it when people take a block or concept and change it up to make something unique. Of course the panel in the middle is perfect. And to finish it off, the back was Snoopy flannel.
Block Sampler for Quarantine
The last one I wanted to highlight is from Cindy. It is the Pandemic Sampler quilt the Busy Lady Quilt Shop in Mt. Washington, KY offered in 2020. I believe that Cindy used her stash and created this beautiful quilt. I’ve always loved scrappy quilts. They can be so much fun. This is one way to keep yourself busy during a quarantine! She quilted with a super fast and easy and oh so cute pantograph that we have here called Calder. I think the points and swirls look great.
It’s always fun to see what other people have put together. It can give us inspiration for our next quilt. And sometimes its just fun to see pretty things. That is why we go to quilt shows after all. Unless you’re like me and like to check out the vendors as well. You can always join us in our own online quilt guild called Quilted Joy Clubhouse on Facebook. Or you can connect with us on Instagram and share a picture. We’d love to see what you’ve been working on. In the meantime, I’ll see you at our next Renter Roundup.
