Priscilla Priscilla’s Beauty is a 5-color, 6-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 69 x 69 inches. I have a smaller version of this quilt started. I got bogged down in the pomegranate applique—I have too many applique projects going!

This design uses the Inklingo New York Beauty #2 and 6″ Sunflower Collections. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Stonehenge by Northcott.

Pricilla Williamson is a second great aunt and one of Jane’s daughters. She was born in 1861 but I lose sight of her after the 1870 Census. Both of her parents are gone by 1880 and she could be living with other relatives or even married by the 1880 Census. Either way, I thought a New York Beauty quilt should be hers.

Kathleen Kathleen’s Butterfly Garden is a 6-color, 6-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 72 x 72 inches. Originally I used a pastel palette for the quilt but then decided that butterflies and flowers are usually much more colorful. I switched from Northcott’s Toscana line to their Artisan Spirit Shimmer Collection for this quilt.

This design uses the Inklingo 3″ Drunkards Path Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from several Artisan Spirit Shimmer collections by Northcott.

I have a few cousins named Kathleen in my Canadian Duthie and McEvoy lines. There are a lot more Katherines and Katherinas [thanks to some German lines] than Kathleens in my family tree. No Kathleen story to share though as there are none are in my direct lines.

I love playing around with Drunkards Path units turning and twisting them to make new designs. This block is not original but it is uncommon—Like the Kathleens in my family tree.

[WordPress updated their editor and I have to say, I DON’T LIKE IT!! I gave up in frustration trying to post tables copied from MSWord last week. I’m determined to catch up in my A to Z Challenge posts—frustration or not. It’s going to take a lot of chocolate…]

Sewing Curves Without Pins

This is how I sew curves. (I dislike pinning!) I use a 3M Command Strip pasted along the side of my presser foot to help as a guide also. You need to be sure to use your 1/4″ presser foot if you are going to use a Command Strip as a guide. When I am done sewing curves, the Command Strip removes easily from my machine bed.

Jane Jane’s Baskets is a 3-color, 4-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 85 x 85 inches. My inspiration for this quilt is an antique quilt I saw on an online auction website. I pinned it to my Basket Quilts board on Pinterest. You can see it here.

This design uses the Inklingo 6″ Basket Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana by Northcott.

This quilt is named for Catherine Jane [Cormode] Williamson. Jane’s family lived near Ramsey on the Isle of Man. She was baptized 13 April 1828 at Kirk Christ Church in Lezayre. Jane was my second great grandmother. I haven’t been able to find out exactly when the Cormodes arrived in America. The earliest record I have shows them living in Rochester, New York in 1844. Sometime around 1848, Jane married William Henry Williamson. Jane and Henry had at least eight children together. Both died in their 50th year—Henry in 1875 of cholera and Jane in 1878 of albuminuria.
