Castles on the Horizon sister quilts

The other day I was surprisingly shocked to learn that there is an Instagram group that has chosen to make my Castles on the Horizon quilt that I create for the Moda Bake Shop, though each person is using different fabrics.

To say that I was thrilled to learn about this is a huge understatement.
There are 15 or 16 IG friends in this group and they call themselves the Charmpions (so cute).

Some of the members of the group gave me permission to share pictures of their quilts in process with you.

Brooke IG: thequiltyox is creating this version.
My friend Celine IG: espritpatch, blog: Espritpatch has just finished adding the borders to quilt top.  She is using The Boathouse by Sweetwater and Modern Background Paper by Zen Chic, both by Moda.
Cindy aka IG: whiskysmum is well underway with her blocks.

This soft and low volume version is coming along nicely by Cathy IG: cathyewbank.
One member of the group has already finished and gifted her version.  This gorgeous creation is by Katrina IG:katrinahodgsen1969.
And my friend (and a good friend to many of you too) Lesley otherwise known as The Cuddle Quilter duplicated my quilt by using Horizon by Kate Spain also.  I love seeing it all washed in sunshine.
Lesley had her longarm quilter use a swirly pattern instead of the straight lines that I used.  I love this version too and it really give some great flow to the overall look.
Thank you, thank you ladies so much for liking my pattern and making your own version.  It truly makes me feel wonderful and gives me incentive to get to finished the other new patterns that I am working on.  Hopefully a new one will be available soon.
