I teach the Lorna’s Vine quilt (at left) from our book Amish-Inspired Quilts. The quilt belongs to my daughter-in-law, Lorna, and I don’t travel with it.
I decided that I needed a smaller version of this quilt to travel with. I finished the applique a few days ago and got the center of the quilt set together just now. I thought I’d share it with you!
Here it is on my design wall. I hope to add the borders tomorrow and I’ll share that image with you too. I hope to get it quilted before I teach it again at the end of January.
I have to be honest, I like the bigger quilt more. But I don’t have time to make it again full-size and I don’t have a place for a quilt of that size. My guess is that there are a lot of you who would prefer to make the smaller quilt too. Once I have all the measurements worked out, I’ll post the information to make the smaller quilt on our website. You’d still need the book, but you won’t have to do the calculations for the smaller one on your own.
FYI – If you look down 3 posts to the movie you’ll notice that I was taking these blocks off the wall in that movie. I didn’t actually take the blocks off the wall 3 days ago! My husband filmed me doing that at least 5 weeks ago. It’s taken me this long to edit the movie, do the voice-over, and get it posted. Many of you are sharp-eyed enough to connect these posts and I didn’t want you to get the idea that I am Applique Wonder Woman :-).
