I like Primitive too!

 Here is block 4 of Jan Patek's Bible quilt. Eve kind of blends in a little more then I like so I may go back and stitch around her in black.
 Here' the completed pillow from Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine, also designed by Jan Patek. I had no idea how to add the "binding" which doesn't bind at all but is more like piping. I made mine too wide so it doesn't look that great. If you've made many projects of Jan's you know sometimes you have to figure things out yourself- this is one of those times!
This is the start of a Christmas project called Twelve days of Christmas by Cheri Payne. I think it will look better as I add to it.
Many of you have commented on the new quilt in my banner. That's by Cheri too! She has a fun blog that if you haven't checked out, you should! Quilts by Cheri is the name.

I think the sun is trying to peek through this morning- Yay!

  2. I have found that I seem to only be drawn to primitive quilts. I too am working on a Jan Patek wall hanging, Spring Fling. The picture of the pattern shows blue fabrics that she used, but I am changing it to tans/browns/reds.

  4. I'm working on the Bible BOM blocks too... well, I've not actually started working on them, they're sitting in a basket waiting for me to have some time to tackle them... so I guess you would say I'm collecting them... *lol*

    Thanks for the suggestion about "Eve"... I'll remember that when I do this block!

  5. Lovely projects, Lori. I especially like the pillow. I was getting a little frustrated with a project last night where the directions were sparse. Kinda takes the fun out of it sometimes. I think I finally figured it out, but it took a while and some unsewing : /

  13. When I was looking at the thumbnail photo for this post I thought, "what do you mean, Eve shows up just fine." Then I went to the large picture and realized that was Adam. I didn't even see Eve in the small photo. So, yes, I think she needs outlining. The pillow looks great and I am awed by Cheri Payne's designs. Love their striking simplicity.

  15. The block and pillow are so cute. Love the new magazine. Some quilting friends and I were in Kansas City this weekend and stopped in Quilters Station. We got to see Rita Briner's quilt from the magazine in person...just gorgeous. The magazine has great projects, it is more like a quilt pattern book than a magazine, a bargain.

    Happy Stitching,
    Cheri

  18. I like that pillow. You did a great job. The blocks are looking really awesome too. I like the 12 days block.

    Happy stitching.

  21. I love cheri's designs but YES you have to work out the pattern sometimes yourself too!

  28. I'm not huge on primitive to do myself but I do love the look of it, I adore the bible block! The pillow looks soft and cosy so I wouldn't worry about it being a little big, it looks great to me.

  29. I think that pillow looks very snuggly. Definitely I like it!!! I'm also enchanted with the Twelve Days of Christmas. You know Lori, you're so multi-talented with your quilting - it's fun!!!

  30. I just love the Prim applique projects.

  31. Got my copy of 'the' magazine last week. Can't wait to get some of my stash unpacked so I can start stichin'. Your pillow looks greaet!

  32. I treat the pillow top and backing like it was a quilt. Bind as a quilt would be bound, and either leave an opening to insert the pillow form/stuffing, or use an 'envelope style' closing. This way your binding will not 'hang out'. It took me a while to figure that out, but it works really well, and the pillow has a nice shape, too. I hope this give you an idea!
