Supernova Quilt - Blocks One and Two

 My Singer 301 and I have been humming right along, churning out the blocks for the Supernova quilt.  This is Block One.  I sewed four of these.  

 This is Block Two.  I sewed eight Block Twos.  The Supernova blocks are fun and easy to sew.  The only thing you have to watch out for is color placement.  It's all lovely straight seams and easy half square triangles.

 Now, on to the final block, Block Three.  This block begins with red and black half square triangles.  Such a vibrant combination!

It also features red orange and black triangles.  These four blocks should finish up quickly.  I'll show them next time.

Pioneer Rose Quilt

Today I'm showing the Pioneer Rose quilt.  This heirloom style quilt features the beautiful Pioneer Rose applique block, set on point, and paired with the unique Curved Chain Block.

Quilt Stats:
Quilt Size:  61" x 61"
Block Size:  12" x 12"
Fabric:  Liberty Gathering, by Primitive Gatherings, for Moda
Batting:  Warm 100, by the Warm Company
Thread:  King Tut, by Superior

 The Curved Crossing block in navy blues, white, and beige gives this quilt a strong visual impact.  The curves add a little spice to an otherwise ordinary block.  

 The Pioneer Rose applique block is also a crossing design.  
I used the fusible applique method for my blocks, but these could be sewn using any applique method you desire.  This photo shows the block before zigzagging around the patches.

 I used matching thread, except for the beige leaves.  I used the navy thread on the beige leaves to help them stand out against the light background.

I echo quilted around the applique patches and did a simple loopy meander over the balance of the quilt to finish it off.


 The Pioneer Rose quilt is a cover girl!  It is currently gracing the cover of the September/October 2017 issue of Love of Quilting magazine, available at your local quilt shop now.  If you sew a Pioneer Rose quilt, please share a photo.  I would love to see it!
