… and there’s an elephant chasing them!
9 Lives is a wild looking quilt designed by Phil & Lisa Girard of Tivoli Quilt Creations. You’ll be able to use up even your tiniest scraps. Make a few single cats and they’d make an interesting grouping on the wall in a child’s room. Make all nine cats and you’ll have a fun lap quilt. Just the kind that a child would love to look at and “explore” when they are having some quiet time or laying down for a nap. It’d be fun to make up names for each of the “crazy cats.”
But look out… here comes the elephant! This wall hanging is done in reverse applique but no need to do any of it by hand. Quite a dramatic looking elephant.
Wonder what she’d look like with painted toenails?
Enough with the animals – here’s a Christmas project. Christmas Express is an advent calender. Each car on the train, including the locomotive, is a pocket ready to hold a small surprise for the countdown. If you have any scraps left after making those cats, they’ll be put to good use here.
Now that your scraps are used up, grab a bunch of fat quarters and here’s a simple quilt… Reversible Lap Quilt should make up quick. There are even quilting designs included so there’ll be no hesitation to finish while you try to figure out what’s the “best” way to quilt the project.
Lots of choices for the two sides: light/dark, winter/summer, spring/fall, bold/muted, cats/dogs… hey, who let the animals back in?!
Next, for a challenge and a stunning finish, try Serpentine. Again, with the scraps. Designers Phil & Lisa Girard say it’s not as hard as it looks, but they agree, it’s stunning.
These should keep you busy for a while, but they are just a few of the many, varied designs by our featured designer, Trivoli Quilt Creations. There are also a few more advent calendars, tote bags, full size quilts, and more. Check out all of their projects and all of the other designer’s quilt patterns at QuiltersWarehouse.
