A couple of weeks ago two friends, Carolyn and Nancy, came to visit me. They both had some pretty quilt tops that needed to be finished. I was happy to get busy quilting for them.
This is Carolyn's quilt. Wow - the fabrics are just lovely in this one. Carolyn chose the Chevron Feather pantograph and a dark brown thread. I think it turned out beautifully.
Below is Nancy's quilt. She used very pretty fabrics which were reproduction prints that she fell in love with. Nancy chose the Tweet Tweet panto and cream thread.
Thank you, Carolyn and Nancy, for letting me quilt for you!
Even though I have lots of longarming to do downstairs, I always have a piecing project going on upstairs to work at when a get a few minutes here and there during my day.
I'm not sure which technique Carolyn used to make the blocks for her quilt, but I know she used a jelly roll. Her blocks are similar to the piecing project I am working on. I'll give you a sneak peak. It uses the Strip Tube Ruler which I am trying for the first time. I'm using some strips from a polka dot jelly roll alternating with white strips that I cut myself. You sew the strips into a tube, line up the ruler just right, and cut. When you open up the cut triangles you get a square. Yes, it is fun opening up those triangles and seeing the colors together! This is also very similar to the technique used for the Summer In The Park quilts we made at QUILT CAMP. I'll show you more of this quilt in a couple weeks when I get it all together.
Carolyn and Nancy both got the Summer Sale discount - 10% off their quilting. It's not too late for you to get the discount, too! Click here to find out more.
I'm linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday to share my finishes this week.
I hope you take some time to do a little stitching today, I definitely will. Netflix sent me the first disc of season 4 of Downton Abbey. I see some hand stitching binding in my future tonight in front of the TV. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
