Bobcat Big Cat Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies


Purchase Bobcat Pattern


While I continue to work on custom patterns, let me share these beautiful pieces that were made from my patterns –


I posted about this bobcat pattern a couple of months ago.  I designed the pattern for Mandy.  She emailed me this photo of the finished wall hanging that she made for her son.  She quilted it with little paws.  I think it’s beautiful!



Viking Penguin Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies


Purchase Viking Penguin Olaf Pattern


Amanda from This Mom Quilts made this Viking Penguin for her father!  What a fun gift!  Love the circlular quilting!

I took a few minutes to share these with you, now it’s back to my desk again.

Have a lovely weekend,

Doctor Who Weeping Angel Sewing Pattern | Whims And Fancies



This 10″ Weeping Angel block started it all.  I had just started creating paper piecing patterns a few months earlier and decided to embark upon creating a Weeping Angel quilt pattern.  Of course, it had to be a paper piecing pattern.  I also wanted to optimize the pattern to have minimal seam alignment for easier piecing.  I won’t lie, as a novice pattern designer, it was hard work.  I worked on it slowly and finally the pattern was written and shortly afterwards, the block was stitched.  I had a tremendous boost of confidence after designing this pattern.



Doctor Who Weeping Angel Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies



This year I am taking care of my orphan blocks, and it was time to pull this one out.  I haven’t done much FMQ, I am married to my walking foot.  I thought I’d give FMQ another go on this one.  There are a few spots where the curves could be a little better.  I tried really hard not to fuss over them.  I used a yellow thread for the overall quilting because I didn’t want the quilting to show up too much on the border.  The binding is done in the same blue fabric as the background of the block.  It is now residing in my husband’s office on the guest bed along with the Fairy Door pillow I made earlier.
