Last night at our guild meeting, we had Barb from Coach House Designs as our guest speaker.
Barb designs quilts for Moda – before the fabric is in the stores. I’m not sure how many patterns she has – but it’s safe to say that she has designed a plethora of patterns. A few have similar themes, but all are unique. Many of her patterns have crap-lique (appliqué) on them – but she kept saying “it’s easy.” I’m not sold on that (yet) . She showed many of her quilts that she made from her patterns. A few were made by her friend.
And … she gave every attendee a free pattern and a list of the quilts that she showed at our meeting. SEW FUN!
Another BONUS, her website has an app that helps with colour placement and change. It’s FREE and FUN! (link below)
You can take one of the patterns, choose a different fabric line and make your own changes.
The first is a picture of the original pattern “Bee Inspired”. The others are done with other fabric lines (French General & Kansas Troubles.)

I’m almost finished quilting “like Gina’s Comma.” As I was trimming it, watching the odd snowflake fall, I decided to call the quilt “Summer Envy.” I knew that the backing was just about the same size as the front. Here’s what’s left of the trimming of the back: Not even enough for one 2″ square! That’s what I call “cutting it close!” Hopefully the quilt will be finished tomorrow … with binding?? maybe.
