Happy New Year 2020

Our wish for the New Year has always been the same: Peace for all humankind ! We wish you a year filled with happiness, serenity, prosperity, and of course, lots of time to create beautiful quilts !

Dove of Peace, 35 x 35", free pattern by Heidi Pridemore for Windham Fabrics

Two separate blocks comprise this quilt. The doves are fusible appliqued onto the background, and the stars are paper-pieced. The size shown above is 35" x 35", with nine blocks that are each 8" square. This size makes a beautiful wall quilt or table topper. Of course, you can add more blocks to make a fabulous lap quilt, or a bed quilt, or even a crib quilt for a dear little one. It's a very versatile pattern !

Winter colors of icy blue and arctic white comprise the majority of this pattern, with pastel gold sashing and binding. But you don't have to make it in pale winter colors! It would look just as beautiful in vibrant, color-saturated batiks.  You can go really exotic and create hot pink doves on a royal purple background ; or even add a tropical touch and do lime green doves on a bright turquoise background. The choice is yours !

Thank you to all our readers; and may you have a most blessed New Year 2020, from Marina and Daryl Lynn
