Made my me - quilted by Jenny and on it's way back for binding! I LOVE this quilt! But I am not keeping it. It's a 50th birthday present for my cousin. I have never made the same quilt twice but this one has me considering it.
Why, yes it is! While sitting in the jury assembly room, it occured to me that it has almost been a year since that this 'lil blog has been updated. What quilty things have I been doing? I will have to post more pictures when I am back home but for now will ask you to check out the pictures and links below.
I just completed this quilt for my son:
and this one which is the last quilt I blogged about before my blog break:
I am not talking about bliss from Anna, Lead Commander in "V". Of course I am speaking of Moda Bliss! Isn't it just lovely? I used my Bliss charm pack and Kona White and made disappearing 9 patch blocks. Then I squared them up "wonky" on my Accuquilt Studio cutter using a 12.5 inch square die.
This quilt is a gift for my sweet Aunt Georgette, matriarch of my family. The colors and patterns of the prints remind me of growing up in her beautiful 1940's home.
Happy Sunday! I am way behind on posting here and have a lot of explaining to do :-) ... but until then I wanted to show you that my latest quilt is back from the quilters. Hope you like it! I do. It's already being used as my bed quilt. I used Denise Schmidt's Hope Valley line with Kona solids inbetween. I will be back this week with a follow up on the Fandango Lone Star, a stash report mostly discussing my renewed passion for solids and a tutorial on machine pieced binding!
This quilt was so easy to make! I had intended on quilting it myself by following the zig zag pattern which would have been nice. But then I scheduled shoulder surgery and just couldn't wait to use this quilt and it called for a cherry quilt pattern (don't you think?) ... .it's a present to me!
I made this for my son ~ that was before he told me he is moving to Maine (brrr...) good thing I backed it with flannel. The pattern is called "Jamaica", from the book "Tradition With A Twist" . The fabrics are M&S Textiles Aboriginal fabrics.
This was the 3rd quilt I completed - I had a lot of scrap colors and some Jane Sassman fabric so I attemped my first log cabin. About 1/2 way into it I set a goal to create 100 blocks.l The quilt ended up 114x115 inches. I used leftovers for the border.
