Debra Miller sent me this photo of her finished Bullseye wall quilt. Here’s the story:

I took your bullseye class at the Ky Heritage Quilt Society getaway (Cave City, KY) in June 2019. Finally finished the quilt during Covid shutdown. Did the quilting myself. Trimmed with flying geese and done with extra trapunto behind the bullseye. Measures 46” square. Unfortunately I didn’t win a ribbon (at the Kentucky State Fair 2021) but I love it and so does my husband. I have a place for it in a guest bedroom. Thanks for great instruction. I picked up a lot in your class.

Debra, your quilt is lovely and how wonderful that you got to share it in person with those who saw it at the fair and here, online! It does not need a ribbon to be a winner :-). Thank you for sharing it with us!

On a personal note, I always enjoy hearing when projects started in one of my classes get finished. If any of you are interested in making a Bullseye quilt, large or small, you can find the book here AND you can find my online class that includes the ebook on Creative Spark.

Carin Shaughnessy shared her finished Bullseye quilt top. It’s beautiful! She says: “I really really enjoyed this pattern and plan to make it again.” I say, great! Carin, you made a wonderful, happy quilt! Well done!

If you would like to make a Bullseye of your own, you can sign up for my class on Creative Spark or get the Bullseye pattern pack.

Maureen Moore Scheevel finished her Bullseye quilt top. She was in my virtual class with her guild, the Austin Area Quilters Guild. Here’s Maureen’s pieced top with all 7 rings. Isn’t it amazing!!!!

I especially love the yellow woven through the quilt… bright in the center, calmer, that a little higher intensity. It adds life and movement to the whole quilt. Maureen, you made a winner! Well done and thank you for sharing your quilt with us!

Show and tell, Bullseye!

Vicci Conway took my Bullseye class and she is very excited about finishing her wall quilt, and deservedly so! Her Bullseye pulls you in and makes you look closer:

I think the fabric is all the same print, in different colors. It works really well and it a fine example of how cool it is when you cut up big prints. You only see the flower design in the big corner pieces. Everywhere else the print reads as texture, not flowers.

Thank you, Vicci, for sharing your beautiful quilt! If anyone is interested in taking my Bullseye class on Creative Spark, click here for more info. Or click here to find the pattern on my site.

I taught two virtual classes to the Austin Area Quilt Guild last weekend. Jennifer Padden is the first to send me a photo of her finished Bullseye block. Isn’t it fantastic?! I don’t remember seeing this block made up in reproduction fabrics before and I do love it :-). Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing!

My video Bullseye class on Creative Spark is open to anyone—you don’t have to be in a guild to take it. It’s an excellent class if I do say so myself :-).

The ebook with the pattern and instructions is free with class. Click here for more information.

Jackie Fisher sent pictures of her completed bullseye quilt, that she finished in September 2019. She took my Bullseye class last year at the Lighthouse Quilt Guild in Grand Haven, MI. 

Jackie says: “I love this quilt and the entire process! This morning I hung it in the window by my grand piano so everyone walking or riding by could enjoy it, too!  I too an amazing picture of it from the back side (facing the inside of my house) that looks like stained glass.

Isn’t that lovely!!!

Jackie is ready to quilt her SECOND 20” Bullseye that she is making for a Guild challenge that has been postponed “from May to, well, who really knows. I’ll send a pic of that when it’s finished.”

We can’t wait to see it! Thank you for sharing :-).
