My Little Quilt Show

Hot Air Balloon Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies



Thank you so much for joining me for another year of Trunk Full Of Quilts.  Today, alongside announcing the winners, I get to show you a few of my finishes.  As most of you know, I am a paper piecing designer, I use paper piecing to create pictures with fabric.  I draw the pictures free-hand and then turn them into patterns.  I also like to solve puzzles.  I like the challenge of simplifying complex shapes into simpler patterns.


I made Floating At Dawn earlier this year.  Around the summer months, when we went running in the morning, we could see balloons coming up one by one above the horizon.  I made that scene into a mini.  Floating At Dawn pattern is available in my shop.


I have link under every photo if you want to read more.  Also, I always get asked about pattern links right after I publish a post, so I am including the links should you like to purchase any.



Pinwheel Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies



This one represents rivers flowing with meltwater at the edge of growing woods, while the wind dances and changes its pace along the way.



Castle Quilts Pattern | Whims And Fancies


Purchase Castles In The Air Pattern


Three of my online friends and I did a wonky house block swap a few years back.  I love castles, so I made 12 castle patterns.  Along with the 4″ swap blocks, I also made a 10″ block of each castle for myself.  That’s how Castles In The Air came to be.



Stone House Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies


Purchase Colonial House Pattern


I love the outdoors in all seasons.  One year it was too cold to go camping, so we rented a cabin.  There was a club house nearby with a gigantic fireplace for everyone’s use.  That’s what gave me the idea for Winter Cottage.



Flowers Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies


Purchase Raindrops On Flowers


I created these four blocks with a stained glass style design.  The four flowers are the Scottish Thistle, the Welsh Daffodil, the Irish Flax and the English Rose.  The splashing of raindrops in a puddle inspired the circular quilting on this one.


I hope you enjoyed the display of my paper pieced quilts.  You can find the rest of my work under the Finished Works tab at the top of the page.  It also includes other sewing and quilting finishes, along with a few knittings and paintings.



Photo Linky Party | Whims And Fancies


Wandering Camera


Photography is a big part of my life.  Earlier this year I started hosting a monthly linky party where I share a few photography tips along with my monthly photos.  You are welcome to join me with your photos.



I cannot thank the sponsors enough who made giving away so many prizes possible.  I am so thankful to these generous sponsors for providing prizes. Alongside Whims And Fancies, I also have Aurifil Threads, Meadow Mist Designs, Craftsy, Fat Quarter Shop, Buzzing’ Bumble, and Cooking Up Quilts sponsoring this event.  Due to their generosity, I was able to create a total of 7 packages.


My heartfelt thanks to all of you for participating and also to those of you who visited the blogs and left comments.  It was great to see everyone visiting each other.  As I mentioned earlier, I am not very fond of competition.  There was no judging, this quilt show was just for fun.  I randomly selected the winners for the prize packages.


Many congratulations to all of you!!!

Prize package 1 winner  – Just Let Me Quilt

Prize package 2 winner – Freemotion By The River

Prize package 3 winner – AmyScrapSpot

Prize package 4 winner – Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

Prize package 5 winner – Pretty In The Port Quilts

Prize package 6 winner – Quilt Fabrication

Viewer’s Prize winner – NeedledMom


I will contact you soon via emails. 


For various reasons I haven’t been on the web for long lately.  If I haven’t replied your email or haven’t visited you yet, I apologise for that.  I am working on it, albeit slowly.  Just wanted to let you know.


Thank you again!

    Loved all these quilts, especially the raindrops on flowers with the circles in the puddles. I saw that you had the trunk full of quilts, but need to set aside an evening to pop around, I will get there though! My camera is acting up so badly lately that I’m struggling to take even one photo. A lot of my photos have now been from my phone :(

    Thanks for sharing. I really like castles in the air. Are they based on real castles or imaginary ones? Dancing wind has a great feeling of motion.
