WOW: Coming Full Circle

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
Oma's Blues by Pat Sirni

Days like today, I really feel that I've come full circle. First I started out just sharing my patterns seven years ago...and now people are sharing the quilts they made from my patterns back with me...and it's a wonderful feeling.

Pat's quilt is really special. She's adapted Oma's Blues using the centre plate and border before finishing it off as a wall hanging. Isn't it fabulous? I just LOVE the way she used beige in with the blue and white, but most of all, I love her dutch fabrics, In my pattern, I have charm plates. Pat has fussy cut her own style of charm plates from the most gorgeous fabrics, it's really effective and I love seeing these variations. Pat is doubly generous you know, as well as sending me pics of her quilt here, she's also a Moderator over in my Yahoo BOM Group, so it's a double thank you today Pat!

Luckily for me, the Moderator's over in my group usually make my quilts before I do...that combined with you talented quilters out there who decide to share your finished pics with me, I'm satisfied that even if I don't get around to making a particular quilt as quickly as I like...I'll still get to see them....somehow. 
What's Your WOW?


  1. Hi Esther how lovely to see your designs been made up by so many other quilters. It is the nicest thing I'm sure for a designer to see. Pats quilt looks so lovely hanging there. I just love the Dutch fabric that Pat has used. Cheers Glenda

  2. It is absolutely gorgeous with those fabrics! :)

  3. The quilt is absolutely gorgeous!!

  4. What a lovely variation on your design, very clever use of fabrics.
    And when I'll do eventually get around to making my Oma's Blue, I am not going to feel guilty about possibly shrinking the design too, as none of my walls would take the full size!
