Finally, I can show you Allison Harris' quilts...Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew is not only kind and sweet, she is down-right clever and I'm quite certain she has about 40 hours in her day compared to the rest of us with only 24! I don't know how she accomplishes all that she does! She has three small children, a husband, house - and all that comes with that - and yet she is able to create fabulous quilts and patterns AND she makes money doing it! Godfrey! Who knew that was possible?!?!? So on with the show!
Wouldn't this be a darling quilt for a little girl? And wouldn't it be even more cute if the names of her best friends were embroidered on different houses? That would be such a keepsake!
This is my favorite Allison quilt...love this colorful village...I want to live in one of those houses! I'm going to make this quilt - I've picked the fabrics...now it's just a matter of letting them age properly while I find time to do it!
Allison told us the names of each quilt as she displayed them - of course I have no idea what she said, who can remember the name when looking at such cuteness?!?
Allison unfurled this quilt to oohs and aahs...it's happy, no? And like all of Allison's patterns, this one looks like it might be difficult to make but it's easy!
This quilt reminded our group of our love of circle quilts...on this one is a bit more work. The quilting on this is pretty great - circles on the circles and stippling between.
This one spoke to me...squares squared...what a great way to use up scraps. I think I'll make this quilt after the house quilt...just need some more hours in my day!
Scrappy half-square triangles made up this quilt - and just look at that beautiful fabric Allison put on the back - we all loved it. Unfortunately it's an older fabric so we have no hope of finding it today!
I'm sure you recognize this pattern - it's a bit modern...clean, classy and wonderful. I love seeing all of the different fabrics - some are SO unique! Again, this is an easy pattern, wish I could remember the name but you can find it on her website - you know you want it!
This would make the perfect baby quilt - an off-set square that is just bordered with fabric strips...how fast and easy would this be to whip up? Said the person who thinks everything is fast and easy - it's a curse which always gets me into trouble-some time crunches!
This pattern is called Pow Wow...it's the only pattern name I remembered and I think it's one of her best sellers - I'm sure you can see why - who wouldn't want to make this?!?
What I love about this pattern is the different sizes of the squares...clever, no? And I love the colors in this quilt - another winner!
Two poor shots of Allison who was busy telling us about her quilts. She is passionate about quilting - and I think you can see why! We really loved having her come and show us her quilts - she had to drive to the ferry, cross the pond and then navigate through the pouring rain to find us...I'm sure her ears were bleeding by the time she left as we are not exactly a quiet group!
This is one of my favorites - it looks like a weaving - easy to do, or so we were told, but looks like it's difficult. This was made with a jelly-roll...so very cute!
Some would say I saved the best quilt for last...possibly, I do love this one! I love the movement the blocks have - and the fabrics - it is a great quilt! All of Allison's quilts are great - they all have a modern vibe with a traditional feel...maybe that's why she wrote this book:
Thanks Allison for coming and sharing your amazing talents and quilts with us!!
