My son needed a new quilt for his bed. I didn’t have enough of any particular fabric for the border, so I pieced it from my scraps. If you want a masculine look, use plaids. This quilt was inspired by a pattern called “Back Home” by Diane Hansen. Machine quilted by Judy Remiger.
It is better to give than to receive. I donated this quilt as part of my guild’s service project called Comfort Quilts. I was told that a young woman (20-something) ran into the street to rescue a dog and was herself hit by a car. She is now in a wheel chair and is the owner of this quilt. Update: She is walking with the aid of a crutch! Machine quilted by Sherri Falls.
From Kaffe Fassett’s book Glorious Patchwork, the Navy Brick pattern is super easy. It is my first and only Kaffe quilt using his line of striped fabrics. I redesigned the border using leftover blue bricks. Machine quilted Sara Peterson.
I call this the friendliest block exchange quilt ever. The theme was pastel fabrics and the pattern was chosen to showcase the soft florals. Som quilters love swaps and others have sworn off them completely. This block exchange was highly successful. Machine quilted by Sara Peterson.
I like to bring this quilt out for the Fourth of July holiday. It is very similar to a pattern from Country Threads called “Hometown U.S.A.” Machine quilted by Judy Remiger.
My name is Chris Barnard and I have been quilting for 20 years and teaching quilt classes for 10 years. My goal, besides sharing my passion for quilting, is to inspire people to begin quilting or finish quilts already started.
