Warp & Weft Virtual Trunk Show

We've got a real treat for you today: A virtual trunk show of Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr's projects made using their Warp & Weft fabrics. They've created five projects, and they're all conveniently featured in the Warp & Weft publication. They've also shared a free quilt pattern (see Tube Socks below).

Plaid Happy
47" x 76"
This quilt uses the gray and white plaid in the background of the blocks. That one check just transforms the rest of the quilt.

and here to purchase the kit. 

Plain Spoken
51" x 77"
This quilt mixes the yarn dyes with prints from Printology. They play well together! You don't have to have equal amounts of every fabric, but you do need good contrast among the prints and yarn dyes so the pieces don't blend into each other.

Triple Play
50" x 72"
For this quilt, we chose a low-contrast palette of yarn dyes and Printology fabrics--the "worker bee" tonal fabrics. The pieced sections are made using improvisational piecing techniques, which you can cut wonky or straight.

Fringe Benefits
24" square pillow or wall hanging
These squares are appliqued on, and then stitched down with a 1/4" seam allowance. Then we pulled a few threads out to fray the edges for a textured look.

Tube Socks
47" x 78"
When we decided to develop modern quilts, our first rule of thumb was not to use traditional 19th century patterns--we wanted to use motifs from our modern lifestyle. Tube socks--like our daughter's soccer socks--definitely fit into that category. They made their heyday in the 80s, but they've made a comeback too. This was a fun quilt to design and puts a smile on our faces whenever we see it.
