Pageant Highlight Reel / Beauties Pageant 40

Quilty friends, welcome to another Beauties Pageant. Instead of confessing to starting yet another project (and let’s face it—I have done exactly that since I last posted), I thought we’d look back at highlights from the past few months of pageants.

One of my favorite finishes of late is the Footnote Quilt that Chris, of Chris Knits Sews, made. The pattern achieves the same effect as the Dutch Windmill Quilt I sewed with my guild a few years ago. I love that Chris used prints, though, which soften the subtle curves of the overall quilt ...

And then there’s this flying geese wall quilt from Gretchen, of Gretchen’s Little Corner. The modern tone of this project isn’t her usual MO, but—wow!—it’s well executed. The pieced flanged binding, in particular, is brilliant.

I have a weakness for Christmas quilts, so Alison’s Christmas Churns Quilt has been on my radar since she posted the corresponding tutorial on Moda Bake Shop. Head to her blog, Little Bunny Quilts, for more information and a link to the tutorial while there’s plenty of time before the holidays to make one for yourself. ; )

  1. Thanks for sharing those flashbacks! All three are beautiful and tempting!

  2. I'm with you on the confessing part...starting something new in just being a quilter! And having several going at once is normal!

  3. You certainly don't have to have a finish every week for goodness sake!! I LOVE Gretchen's flying geese quilt. I saw it earlier when she posted it and wow - it is a beauty.

  4. Aw, thanks for the shout out! And no thanks for highlighting those other quilts that I must now put on my to-do list! Are you trying to make me start more projects like you? LOL

  5. It's always fun to start something new, lol. No need to feel guilty with us, we all get it :)

  6. I love that flying geese quilt. I think we can all confess to starting something new LOL
