Quick Week!


Wow it's already Friday and July 6th! The summer is going fast!
This quilt has been about 2 years in the making! I started it at a retreat and then put it away. The pattern was easy to work on in a busy and talkative setting.


When I was cleaning up last week,  I "found" it and decided to work on it again. I added the Flying Geese borders which I LOVE!


Next up the quilting. I could not decide what to do.....so it sat some more, like another year. Finally I decided on not quite straight line quilting. It is very forgiving and feels more modern like this quilt. I am also a big fan of dense quilting, no gaps for me.


The next procrastination was the back......I wanted something fun and I NEVER use plain white, so I would not be starting now. The quilt was wider than the backing fabric so some Flyng Geese came back into play. I love how they are on the front and the back.



It is a rainy day here so the colors are off, but in real life they look great!


We have had a bit of a heat wave so my temperature quilt is sporting some pretty colors, I am excited to see what the whole thing will look like in December! I am over half way there.
Basket Quilt Stats - Pattern by Diary of a Quilter (paper pieced), fabric mostly Alison Glass, thread Aurifil in my favorite color, Dove, machine quilted by me.......lines are any where between 1/8" to no larger than 3/8". The machine quilting took like 2 days about 6 hours total. Now it needs a name, my least favorite part. Suggestions?
I have been on a sewing streak (maybe because of the heat) and have 2 more quilts that need to be bound and lots of projects on the cutting board.
What are you working on this summer?
