Deep in the Heart is the companion pattern for Marie Bostwick's novel, Between Heaven and Texas. It is the fourth collaborative work between Marie and Deb.
Just like Marie's character Mary Dell, this quilt is bigger than life! The Lone Star center (or the center plus the frame) could be a pretty quilt in its own right, but when you add those floating Lemoyne Stars around the edges, Deep in the Heart becomes a fantastic bed size quilt.
Not only that, but all the diamonds and stars are actually strip pieced so, other than the background pieces for the Lone Star, there are no Y seams required! Now that’s a “Yeehaw!” if I ever heard one!
By Combining two contrasting fabrics you will create triangles tumbling down the quilt. Using your V Block tool, this quilt is fun and quick. Just jump right in and give it a whirl!
Designed by the Running with Scissors Quilters.
With all of the geese traveling around this quilt, Atlantic Flyway seemed a most appropriate name. Techniques include “Fast Flying Geese” with the Wing Clipper I ruler, and “Migrating Geese” for the border and a bit of paper foundation piecing for the tricky star points. A wonderful wall quilt.
Galaxy is a beautiful alternating block design using two types of blocks, one with a red star and one with a blue star. Because of the color placement and the different angles in the triangles, the interesting interlocking circles appear and the second star block disappears into the circles. It’s a fun optical illusion, easy to make and even easier to admire.
This beautiful quilt featuring intricate maple leaves and flying geese celebrates our Northern Neighbours. You’ll use Deb’s Corner Beam, Split Rects, and Wing Clipper 1 tools to make this captivating quilt.
