Quilt Porch Parade Week 1

I decided to follow American Patchwork & Quilting’s suggestion and place a quilt out on my front porch daily for either as long as this isolation/quarantine lasts OR until I run of out quilts. I imagine we’ll be out of quarantine long before I run out of quilts, but only time will tell. It’s been really fun to share this side of me with my neighbors and also for me to see some of my old “friends” that usually live in a closet. I am going to post my weekly quilts here so I can keep a record for myself, but also as a great resource for long-forgotten patterns from talented pattern designers.

This is my take on Thimbleblossom’s Vintage Tulip quilt that I made 5ish years ago as a nod to my wedding bouquet.

Elizabeth Hartman’s bunnies were up next since we had just celebrated Easter. I love the solids and prints mixed in this fun one.

This is Half Dash made in confetti cottons by Riley Blake as well as Swiss Dots. It is a pattern I designed and is available in my Etsy shop.

This is Geo Weaver by Pen and Paper Patterns made in a variety of reds, pinks, and purples and quilted in rainbow hearts in neon pink thread. This is my favorite valentine’s day quilt.

My 8 year old got to pick out the quilt for Saturday and he chose his BB8 quilt. I love that he wanted to share this with everyone. The BB8 is a free pattern by @huntersds on instagram that I turned into a twin sized quilt.

I chose to put up my Dwell block swap quilt on Sunday. The center house has an embroidered panel that says “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” The blocks were all made when I swapped blocks with a group of friends in 2016.

Stay tuned for next week’s quilts and maybe the next. 🙂
