Pow!Pow!Pow!

As in “Sis Boom Pow!”, the block gather I joined, to sew a few blocks for a charity quilt being assembled by Miss V, of Bumble Beans fame. I also contributed blocks to her Nothing But Kisses charity quilt that raised funds for Love Without Boundaries. And a recent Pixie Dust Gather quilt that will also be sold to raise funds for another worthy cause.
My first block is a flower, a single gorgeous bloom, reminiscent of a stained glass Rose Window
Inspired by a sudden glimpse of the Rowen Pillow in a recent Crate & Barrel catalog that landed in my mailbox. Love this block and will have a hard time parting with it… Both blocks are done in raw-edge applique, on fused pieces of fabric. The fabric from these are from Jennifer Paganelli’s Sis Boom collection for freespirit. She donated them to our group of thirty International quilters to create this quilt for charity.
The design for my second block grew from the decoration on the cloak of my Jim Shore “Love at First Bite” dracula…it sort of jumped out at me one morning shortly after I received the fabric from V, while I was eating my cereal at the table and mindlessly scanning the items decorating the table…
That’s what I like about creating my own patterns and designs, you never know when inspiration will strike…I hope you like them, Victoria! I look forward to seeing the quilts assembled!

  1. Wow, these blocks are so amazing! You are so good, Doris! I especially love that second one. What a privilege to be part of this group. Are these machine-appliqued? (sorry if I missed that) I would love to know how to make something like this.

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
