The Big ‘O’ Quilt, Part II

Here’s a quilt that I’ve never blogged about. I blogged about The Big ‘O’ Quilt a few months ago. This is the second quilt in the ‘O’ Series, The Big ‘O’, Part II. Like The Big ‘O’ this quilt uses the Bias Tape Appliqué technique but only on the right half of the quilt.  The […]

I did see it at QuiltCon13 and loved it. I hope to make something similar soon.

I already loved Big O a lot, but maybe I love Big O part II even more! Is it because of the beautiful green you’ve chosen? For me this is a very powerful quilt.

You are so amazing! I want to come work with you in your sewing room for a week.

I’m sorry to say that I didn’t attend QuiltCon 2013, and therefore missed seeing this striking quilt. But I’m terribly impressed with it! The simplicity of the design, and the seemingly random color choices make it really special. You’ve just demonstrated that a stunning design does not need to be complicated to be effective. A perfect example of less being more. Truly wonderrful, Latifah! Thank you for sharing.

Sewtopia Chicago? Here I Come!

I was so happy when the Sewtopia crew invited me to teach at the second Sewtopia event happening April 16, 2015. Then I found out the other teacher was Rita from Red Pepper Quilts. Then I found out it was going to be in Chicago! Then I found out it was going to be at […]

I love this pattern, especially the paper pieced version! I can’t wait for the pattern to be released!

Nancy - August 18, 2014 - 6:35 am

Will be awaiting publication of this pattern- it’s wonderful. As are all of your quilts. Nice work.

Mary Jo - July 28, 2014 - 6:13 pm

I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas -please not that long–I love your new pattern.

Diane - July 25, 2014 - 4:44 pm

I sure hope I can snag a ticket next week

kitty - July 25, 2014 - 7:52 am

That’s two very different teachers at the Sewtopia! Wish I could be there in Chicago when you teach!! Unfortunately me too, I’m too far (the Netherlands) to benefit from your teachings!
Your Molehills is fabulous and I can’t wait for the pattern to be available! Ever so interested in the “wild and crazy top”. Looks great!!

Myrto - July 25, 2014 - 7:36 am

Oh Latifah your work is fantastic!
I will wait to learn more about these patterns through your blog because unfortunately I’m very far to be able to dream about a workshop with you!

Spicy Sticks – A Quilt for Mom

Do you sometimes make a quilt that is not 100% your style or colors? I do for those I love. My sister decorated my Mom’s living space around colors inspired from a mirror that Mom fell in love with from Pier One. I wanted to make a quick quilt that would coordinate with this already […]

Ruthann - July 3, 2014 - 12:18 pm

I love it! In the photo the colors look very Bauhaus-ish. I’m sure your mom will love it!

Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge - July 3, 2014 - 5:03 am

Love it! Are those quilting lines a stitch on you machine or did you make them wiggly yourself?

Lynda M Otvos - July 2, 2014 - 7:25 pm

Stunning. Gorgeous. Inventive. Lovely. Solid. Striking.

Can you tell I like it !~!

Play Around the World Quilt

I sorta have a crush on everything that Sarah Jane does. Everything. And, when she had her first line of fabric, I wanted every SKU of it. It is filled with true multicultural children, not just children with different complexions.  And these kids all live in a magical world of individuality and whimsy. Love it. […]

Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing your method!

pennydog - July 4, 2014 - 5:28 am

This is so cool!

Lauren - July 3, 2014 - 9:13 pm

I love everything Sarah Jane does, too. This is a great use of that panel print. So original and the quilting is so impressive! What a lucky niece!

Alli - July 2, 2014 - 1:55 pm

Wow! That is such a cool quilt! I love it! :)

Christine Sherman - July 2, 2014 - 10:02 am

What a wonderful unique design, love it!

Rachel - July 1, 2014 - 3:08 pm

Wow, this is so beautiful! I’ve always loved that line and still have treasured pieces of it. Those curves are amazing, I love how you’ve repeated them throughout the quilt. And now I’m off to google 6 minute circle!!

Nicole - July 1, 2014 - 1:02 pm

That is just brilliant. So well designed. Well done.

Ben - July 1, 2014 - 11:09 am

Love the way you’ve used the panel.

kelly - July 1, 2014 - 9:17 am

Gorgeous Latifah! Love how you’ve customized that 6-minute circle technique – so clever!!!

Irelle B - July 1, 2014 - 8:48 am

Very creative and wonderful use of that border print. I love that fabric!

Mary D - July 1, 2014 - 8:19 am

What a really nice quilt for your niece. I know she will love this.

Melissa - July 1, 2014 - 7:49 am

What a genius way to use that fabric! Beautiful quilt!

Becky M - July 1, 2014 - 6:49 am

This is spectacular! Such a creative use of the technique and the print! Genius! :)

Andres - July 1, 2014 - 5:44 am

Another awesome quilt!

Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge - July 1, 2014 - 4:56 am

What an amazing quilt. I would never have thought of using that great print in that way. And Six Minute Circles? I’ll be googling that as soon as I finish my comment! :)

Cat - July 1, 2014 - 4:36 am

It’s truly gorgeous, I love it! I love how the child at the front of the parade-line looks to be stepping onto the curve, it’s just so perfect and fun. Your highlight colours are just perfect too – sweet and girly without being over-the-top girly. I love that balloon girl and rabbit print on the back too, I have that in my stash! Your label on the back is such a great idea. I’m going to google the six minute circle too. Thanks so much for sharing. Cat.

Laurelle C - July 1, 2014 - 3:48 am

Wow. Gorgeous quilt. Those curves look amazing. I am off to google six minute circle as I have not heard of that before. Thanks for sharing :)

Think & Wonder Pattern

Well, I made two different versions for my pattern artwork. It’s a fun pattern called Think & Wonder of course that is great for newbie […]
