The first pattern I designed as a Applique and Piece pattern, was what I called my Tulip Quilt. This pattern was designed in EQ7 with some of the templates includes with the software. This gorgeous quilt top was made in bright pinks and greens. The leave borders was an after thought and was not in my original design. The vines where made from Sue Pelland leave and stems templates.
After finishing this quilt I entered it in the Charles County Fair and won Best in Show. I not yet developed the pattern for this quilt, maybe some day I will have to do that.
My next quilt I that I would like to share is an Applique and Piecing quilt that was an original design by my mother in law, Diane Dillard and myself. "Hearts Delight", pattern was our first Applique and Piecing quilt we did together and has become one of our most popular quilt patterns. This two color pattern combined with one panel of Applique hearts and vines makes this a beautiful quilt. The pieced blocks are a variation of the churn dash. This quilt measure at 59 1/2" x 70", making a great wallhanging or lap quilt.
My absolute favorite combination quilt pattern I have designed is "Lilies in the Wind". This quilt was developed with Batiks fabrics in mind. I designed all the piece blocks and the layout. Once I had the layout, I noticed it need some applique. I played with a few ideas, but was not happy with it. So I then contacted my Mother in law, Diane and she came up with the applique pieces and border. From what she gave me I modified the sizes and and the borders to my liking. The quilt measures 50" x 50" when finished.
