When I initially introduced Lisa Garber (@thecurvyquilter) to you (here), I mentioned she is a self-taught YouTube Quilter so I thought it only appropriate to wrap up this 3 part series of Lisa’s creations with where she began – quilting with YouTube!
As with most of my conversations with Lisa, it’s an exchange of Instagram pictures or videos or a quick email exchange of thoughts and ideas and this first design was no different.
I woke up to a newsletter in my inbox from Missouri Star Quilt Company with Jenny’s “Geese in Motion” quilt and I thought it would look pretty amazing done in Gem Stones and Lisa agreed!
So I shipped Lisa the following and she went to town
and created a Gem Stones Geese in Motion!
I'm not quite sure how this next design came about but I'm sure it happened just like all the rest . . . I saw it or Lisa saw it, we "chatted" and what seems to be in a wink of an eye, Lisa whipped it up!
It's another Missouri Star Quilt Company YouTube video: Disappearing Hourglass Crazy Eight.
The supply list requires a pack of 10" print squares and a pack of 10" background squares but Lisa tweaked hers just a bit by using a 10" x WOF strip of (30) Gem Stones prints to capture and play with the color and tone variance that occurs from selvage to selvage in each Gem Stone print along with the Gem Stones Platinum print for her background. Lisa also eliminated the inner and outer border on her design.
This last design was another quick conversation and boy was I surprised when Lisa shared a photo of the finished quilt:
"Rainbow Snowballs"! Lisa took it to a whole new/different level than what I was thinking/envisioning and boy I'm so glad she did! It's fun and happy and just makes you smile, don't you think? Who knew 6" finished snowballs could look so good!
Well, that's a wrap!
