The Raven

Thursday, October 6, 2016


 
Pat Cross sent a picture of her wonderful hooked rug. It reminded me how little Barb and I talk about how our designs can be translated into other formats. Our latest quilt book, The Raven, is inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s poem. Each block’s name is taken from a bit of Poe’s poetry. But, as Pat has shown us, quilt blocks translate very well into hooked rugs. 


 The cross stitch sampler above was originally adapted from a quilt block pattern from our quilt book Home Sweet Home. Barb changed 6 of the blocks from the 9 block quilt into cross stitch patterns. It's a little different from the block in the book....but still basically the same design.

 

 "Merry Christmas Ella Vaughn" was adapted from the far right block in the middle row.

Any of the above blocks would made a great hooked rug too! Thank you Pat for sending your picture. We love that you took our design and did it your way!

Until later!
Alma

  1. I am doing a Block of the Month with Rivers Edge Quilt Shop of The Raven. I am doing the wool appliqué version offered. Two versions are offered, cotton on cotton and wool on cotton. It is a beautiful quilt to do, thank you!

  2. I am enthralled with The Raven and would have already gotten it if it weren't for massive medical bills from 2015 & 2016. I did put it on my birthday wish list but didn't get it so am hoping for a nice Christmas surprise. I'm still so ill that I can't do much but can sit and sew and this is the one pattern I want to work on. To make matters worse you just had to show a quilt of Home Sweet Home and give me something else to wish for. lol Keep designing and we'll keep sewing and dreaming. Rina

  5. I am trying to locate your pattern Holly Berry Lodge. I saw the quilt at our local quilt show and love the design. I'd like to know the name of the book that contains the pattern, if it's in a book and where I can find it.

    Thanks

    1. Hi, I'm not sure the title is correct. We don't have a Holly Berry Lodge quilt that I can remember.
      Holly and Mistletoe Quilt is in When the Cold Wind Blows - published by the Kansas City Star books
      Peppermint and Holly another holiday quilt is in Quilting the Garden also published by the Kansas City Star books

      Maybe one of these is the one you are searching for.
      Hope that helps some.
