'Red Delicious' was my first BOM! Celebrating all the red things in life which I love.
This quilt generated so much interest that it inspired me to start my own Yahoo BOM Group! That Group has since moved over to become a Facebook Group, and it all started with this simple and lovely red design.
The quilt is an homage to my grandfather, a country doctor who had a passion for gardening. I used the Blooms for Julie project pattern offered at thequiltshow.com. I adapted the pattern and chose to needle turn the applique and use 3-D folded flowers for the centers of the pieced center flowers and on some of the geometric flowers in the border.
Enchanted Evening Star was a quilt I designed as a Quilt of Valor quilt pattern. The All Hallows block is repeated in this quilt . It can be made using jelly rolls, fat quarters, or yardage. It is made using HSTs. The pattern is available for download at McCalls Quilting.
I love to display this quit during patriotic holidays. All of the components used to make this quilt are located in the classroom section of TQS. Look for the Patchwork Math classes, and you will be able to make a Zinnie's Choice to proudly display in your home.
