Hello, and welcome to another edition of “Ask Jo”. I get many comments and questions from all sorts of places, the comment section here, Youtube, email, and from our Facebook group. Sometimes I think others of you might want to know the answers as well so I answer them here on the blog.
In today’s feature, I am answering only one question. I figured it might be enough for one blog post. The question comes from Stacie.
“Hi, Jo, long time blog reader/follower here. Can I have the pattern name of the quilt hanging in your quilting studio? I have attached a picture. I am obsessed with it and must make it ASAP! It’s just beautiful! Thank you so much.”
Stacey sent along this picture with her note.
I thought I would answer Stacie’s question and give you a little tour of the quilts hanging in my sewing room.
The quilt that Stacie was referencing is Civil Unrest. It is a Country Threads pattern and LUCKY YOU! They have this pattern in their shop and you can purchase it as a digital download. HERE is the link.
Here is a better picture of mine.
If you want to know what’s on my bucket list of quilts??? It’s to make this again only big enough for my queen-sized bed!! Once my UFOs are caught up, I just might do it. Would anyone want to do that as a quilt along??
I’d like to make mine more like their colorway.
I also have… Troops in Formation. HERE is the LINK to that pattern. I made this quilt entirely with bonus triangles that I had here. I trimmed them to size and was sewing this up in no time.
This is the original.
This next quilt is another I don’t know the name of. It can be found in the book Civil War Remembered. HERE is a link for the book.
This is their version.
I don’t know the name of this one. It’s one of my favorites. I don’t think they have the pattern available for this one at this time. It can be found in the same book as the above book… Civil War Remembered. HERE is a link for the book.
Here is their version.
When I made most of these I was in a club Country Threads had. We would get a “starter pack” along with a black and white image and instructions to make the quilt. It was kind of fun as we had to think and figure out how to make it without a colored picture. I enjoyed it and made most of the quilts during that time.
I also have these that were a Country Threads pattern. This is done via fusible applique. It was so fun to make. I made them for all of the seasons. Each had the cute lady working outside. This is obviously the winter version. I don’t think the pattern is available anymore. It came in a booklet.
I have some quilts from other designers in the sewing room too. This is Hot Cross Buns from Miss Rosies quilt company. You can find the pattern for this in THIS BOOK. The book is out of print but a digital version is available.
I hosted a sew-along on the blog several years ago. Each month we would make a small mini quilt designed by Lori Smith of From My Heart to Your Hand fame. You can find the link to the patterns HERE.
The was also part of that sew along…
I don’t know the name of this or it is available but it is also a Lori Smith of From My Heart to Your Hand design. Wait. I found the pattern HERE. The pattern has nine quilts in it. All are small seasonal quilts…so cute.
Those are the small quilts I have done in my sewing room. I’d really like to jump and make some smaller decorating type quilts like these all are. I really have very few quilts adorning my walls. I think once I get caught up on my UFOs I might make a few. I had so much fun making them.
