Tatanka Buffalo Quilt

Tatanka...and yet another amazing design by Toni Whitney for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company. These quilts just seem to come alive. Everyone who sees this series is just taken back by the beauty of them. Toni's mastery in her art comes through in her quilt patterns. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Patterns are available at Big Horn Quilts http://www.bighornquilts.com/ and patterns and kits are available at Big Fork Bay Cotton Company http://www.bigforkbaycottonco.com/ I highly recommend getting the kits. Their fabrics are picked by the artist herself and it shows. This is another one I absolutely have to have for myself.

If you have a shop and you would like to receive this Trunk Show be sure to call Traci Suzanne Marvel at 1-866-245-5718. You just can't even imagine how stunning these quilts are.

Autumn Eyes Bear Quilt

You can't even imagine how amazing this quilt is in real life! Autumn Eyes is designed by Toni Whitney for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company http://www.bigforkbaycottonco.com/ . I have ordered three of these kits for myself besides the three I am making for Bigfork Bay Cotton Co.'s trunk shows. I LOVE this one. I am making one for myself, one for my son, and one for the people who have taken such good care of my son when he moved to Washington. They love bear and just bought a new house so this will be the perfect gift. I only wish I took better pictures but you will just have to make one of your own so you can see how fabulous it really is.

This one, too, was a huge hit at Bighorn Quilts when I showed it to our monthly group, too. It looks hard because of the detail but the layout sheet and well written directions make it is so easy to put together.

I didn't think anything could surpass Toni Whitney's Spring Storm, the horse, but I should have known that she had more fantastic art in her. I can't thank Bigfork Bay Cotton Company enough for letting me make these amazing trunk shows for them. The entire crew are the most amazing women you can ever meet. Be sure to go to the link on the right for kits and patterns from Bigfork Bay and patterns from Bighorn Quilts.

Caution: This quilt is addictive! Once you make one, everyone you know and are related to will want one! It really is that breathtaking. If ordering a kit, consider ordering several just to save on shipping because you WILL be getting more.

Summer Serenity Moose Quilt

Summer Serenity by Toni Whitney for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company http://www.bigforkbaycottonco.com/ was such a pleasure to make. I made three of them for their trunk shows. Toni's quilts are so different than the ones we are used to seeing. My son wants one of these for his house in Washington.

When I showed one of the tops at our monthly get together in Greybull, WY, at Big Horn Quilts it was a huge hit. I saw several patterns in the hands of women afterwards who were buying them. The patterns by Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. are very well done. What I really love is the actual size layout sheet. The pattern pieces are reversed for easy transferring to fusible web. Patterns are available at Bigfork Bay Cotton Co or Big Horn Quilts. Click on the links to the right. Kits are available at Bigfork Bay Cotton Co.
