That I hope will be a retreat class in October this year. This quilt is similar to one I made and gifted to Denise. I wanted more definition (black) and a secondary pattern.instead of using strings for the light areas I used fabric from my stash.
These color strings blocks have been made and have been sitting in the corner very neglected. This does not even put a dent in the pile.
To think I need to sew more strings as the string drawers are busting.
Even the cut off pieces get used, for the border. I will most likely put a black border on before the scrappy border. I'm really liking the top. I think I will call it railroad crossing.
I finished the freehand quilting on Caitlin's quilt this afternoon. I used a perma core thread in a pink color, 80 / 20 blend batting. The quilting is a daisy petal swirl pattern.
Isn't this pink fabric beautiful?
I did get the binding cut, sewed together and attached to the quilt. Due to my time restraints I am seriously considering machine stitching the other side of the binding. Then I would only have the label to finish. Sounds like a plan to me. OMG tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Tomorrow will be a baking day. I will have help and it will be a fun day!
It was very fun to search through my 2 1/2 inch strip bin looking for possible color choices. Most of my selections came from this bin. It still did not make a difference in the amount. I still can't shut the lid lol.
I am using step three to make my blocks. I probably only have 40 sewed so far.
When my brother and wife Marion came for Thanksgiving I had Marion go through my stash. I sent her home with a big bag of stash enhancement.
