Quilting update

I just realized I haven’t posted anything since 7/5…whoops! I can tell you that I have not been running (surprise, surprise!) but I have been sewing!

After I finished the Quilt for Pulse quilt, I got it in the mail…and the coolest thing happened! Alissa posted a picture on Instagram the next week and I actually spotted my quilt in her living room (upper right, circled in red)!! What are the odds of that šŸ˜‰

Isn’t that just the coolest picture…so much hand-made love ā¤

Once that quilt was finished I was left with a bunch of HST so I started putting them up on the design wall trying to figure out which layout I liked best…and landed on this one…it sure is bright!

I decided to do some swirls with echo and before I knew it, it was all quilted.

Since there was so much color on the top I went with a black and white butterfly print for the back.

I had a teal solid left from the fat quarters used to make the border and it became the binding. Finished measurement 40″ square. No destination for this one yet…I’ll post it to FB to see if any friends would like to buy it.

I also worked on some BOM & QAL blocks for Sugar Block club and The Splendid Sampler

And last but not least…I’m almost done with the T-shirt quilt!! I got DH to help me baste it yesterday and I spent last night and today getting it quilted! Whew…my shoulders are exhausted!

I know these pictures have bad lighting but the quilting actually shows up better that way – go figure! The client chose the purple backing fabric from a few online choices I provided.IMG_3242

I finished cutting & piecing the binding so all that’s left is sewing it on…that will be tomorrow night! The shade/color is a little off in this binding picture but you can see the design in the fabric much better.

That’s about all I have for now…G’night!
