Cotton + Steel finish

I finished quilting and binding my Cotton + Steel quilt and got outside to get some pictures.

I purchased a FQ bundle of random C+S prints a few months back when Craftsy had an incredible sale and decided to pull 12 of them to make this quilt. After getting it all pieced it looked pretty busy so I chose organic wavy lines for the quilting. I’m really pleased with the final outcome šŸ™‚

I mentioned in a previous post that a neighbor was going to be hosting an artisan party in December and I finally got some specifics

Of course I wanted to have a few more throw size quilts so I’ve started yet another project. I need backing fabric for my Halloween quilt and I found the perfect candy corn print at Connecting Threads – while browsing their sale items I came across a FQ bundle called Acorn Park and scooped it up – the colors are absolutely saturated and gorgeous! The order arrived on Saturday and by Sunday evening I had this top finished (free pattern from fatquartershop.com called Fat Eighth Frenzy)

And finally I had an old work friend reach out to me about a quilt I made earlier this year and posted on FB – he asked if I could make another one for him to give as a Christmas present. He said he had no idea if there was even enough time but wanted to ask. He was referring to this table topper I made back in May

I explained this was not a quilt rather a table topper and although I could scale this up to a throw size, I doubted I could get it done in time for a Christmas gift. He asked if I could make another one the same size and I said Yes…so he ordered one! I hope to have it done this weekend because I have to travel for work almost all next week which will put a serious cramp in my sewing & quilting time šŸ˜¦

I’ll post more pics as I finish…ttfn…

  1. Love seeing your projects! I was recently gifted a Fat Eighth Bundle and had been looking at FQS’s Fat Eighth Frenzy as a possible use. It’s nice to see it done. Guess I’ll be adding this to my To-Do List in 2017!
