Here are three more quilts I finished this month. The first is this black and bright scrappy quilt. I got the bright fabric as samples from a sales rep. They really didn’t go with too much in my stash so I just used them all together. The pattern was a free download from Moda’s website (Wonderland). I had to adjust the block size a little bit because I just had small pieces of each fabric. It’s quilted with a simple allover spiral design. I think it turned out pretty well. One of the nice things about not having the shop is I’m able to work on a project as long as I like. There’s no rush or deadline to get on to the next quilt! I actually started and finished this in the same month!!!
I’m not sure when I started this baby quilt. I made with 30’s reproduction fabrics and a pale yellow background. It’s machine appliqued and quilted and now it’s out of my
This last finish was a really old project. I bought the fabric shortly after we moved to Wisconsin fifteen years ago. The colors are an example of what goes around comes around. The fabric is from the Marcus “Peppermint and Sassafras” line. I really loved the fabric when I bought it and now I’m buying similar colors for my current stash! The project was from a class I took before we opened our shop and I just needed to finish the applique and binding. The hearts are machine appliqued with a feather stitch using heavy wool thread. The heavy thread makes it look like it’s hand appliqued.
Right now I’m working on two scrappy projects. One is Bricks and Stepping Stones from the Quiltville.com site. The other is Split Decision, a commercial pattern from The Teacher’s Pet. Both are made with scraps from other projects. It’s really nice to be able to work down a little bit of stash. Hopefully both will be finished this month so I can post them.
