Use your favorite scraps or coordinated fabrics to create a fun, quick and easy heart-felt project to show your affection for your sewing room, close friend, or near and dear one! Whether you do the pincushion or ornament, finish them off with some fun, decorative stitches for a charming heartfelt wallhanging! Pictured quilt is made with batiks from my Kismet line for Island Batik.
Check out Tammy's blog post for getting ready to start quilting:
Tammy Silvers is a pattern designer who has been quilting since 1991. She designs patterns under her label Tamarinis. Under the label Tamarinis, Tammy's designs are regularly published in a variety of quilt magazines. She also works with some of the major fabric manufacturers designing projects to showcase and promote their fabric lines, including Northcott, Free Spirit, Maywood, Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures.
About Tammy.... "I'm no different than most quilters - I enjoy working with almost any fabric. But I must confess - my favorites (the one that will make me drool, and blow a carefully constructed budget) are batiks, bold prints, and almost any fabric with words on it. Having a background in art and literature, another of my guilty quilty pleasures is finding ways to use “words” in my work, be it in the fabric itself or by adding them to the piece. I am a Georgia native and currently live in Acworth with my husband, children (when they come to visit!), one grumpy dog, and my favorite fat cat."
Yes, I love designing, but I love teaching and sharing my passion for quilting. It is so much fun to get to visit different guilds, meet quilters and see all the creativity that makes this such a fun world to be a part of.
