My Doves of Hope project is a twist on a traditional block titled Dove in the Window. I actually nestled a small dove block inside a large dove block to create a quarter section for each 19½” block. Add sashing and cornerstones to those quarter sections and you have a great, interesting block. Put it on point, and that Dove really soars!
You’ll use two blocks, two tools, and two units to make Take Two, an eye-catching quilt that Deb designed for Marie Bostwick’s 2014 book, Apart at the Seams. You’ll use your Tucker Trimmer 1 and Wing Clipper 1 as you create this gorgeous quilt.
Another in the series of Marie Bostwick and Deb Tucker collaborations, Garden Dance is a magnificent medallion quilt designed as a companion quilt to Marie's novel Ties That Bind. It includes some applique, plenty of piecework, and no stars! Something unusual for Deb and maybe for you, too. So, choose a focus fabric, some coordinating prints and have fun making your own Garden Dance project!
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!
