Hi! I mentioned in an earlier post that I have been helping out one of my local quilt shops with making samples for the shop and our town's upcoming quilt show. She had several of Elizabeth Hartman patterns in, but no samples. I offered to whip some up. This is the Florence Flamingo small quilt with smaller borders and made from some pink Bali batik strips. I just got back from picking up a backing, so I can quilt it up this evening. I am going to quilt it horizontally about every half inch. I think it will be fun and modern. The shop owner was thrilled with how the sample looked and immediately ordered some more patterns in.
This is Dwight the Deer with glasses. It is a 24 inch square pillow cover. Since we live in deer country this is sure to be a hit.
And last but certainly not least, Bjorn the Bear also with glasses and is a 20 inch square pillow cover. Wouldn't this be cute with a bunch of them for a baby quilt? There were several sizes included with the pattern.
I had never used an Elizabeth Hartman pattern before, but I am now a huge fan. Her directions were thorough, all in color, and very detailed. You can find her patterns here:
