Stained Glass Lily quilt pattern

Our latest pattern "Lilium" is a simple stained glass applique design ideal for the beginner quilter. This quilt-as-you-go technique is very quick and rewarding as the quilt goes together in no time at all.

Today I wanted to share two of my pattern testers finished quilts.

Joany made this one and is very happy with the result so she plans to teach it as well.

Deanna made this quilt.

Isn't it great to see different color combinations? What colors would you use?

Lilium is a fun project. If you would like more details you can find them on our website here: Lilium quilt pattern

We would love to hear what other stained glass applique patterns you would like. You can find designs for a poinsettia and poppy on our website, you tell us what else we should include.

Zodiac Class

Recently I had several photos sent to me by Sherry, one of my online quilt students. One of the classes she took was for making Zodiac signs. She made several totes with zodiac pockets for family members.

"Here’s a picture of the Virgo that I completed for our daughter. This was my 1st attempt, but really enjoyed it."

Sherry went on to make two more totes.

"The tote is a late Xmas present – my SIL is a Libra, and my BIL is a Leo, so they’ve each got a pocket."

Great job Sherry!

Did you see "Circle of Life"? which is where the zodiac class originated. It has a Mariner's compass in the center which is now presented as an online class at the Academy of Quilting.

Happy Quilting!
