|Baby Twister 30" x 35"|
You know it's been a while since I blogged when I had to go back and see what I posted because I couldn't remember!
At the end of last year Audrey of Quilty Folk had a quilt along where every day you made a circle block based on how your mood was that day. It's called Quilty 365, yes you are supposed to make one every day for a year. Mine is significantly smaller but I love it! I didn't exactly follow the rules but I don't think that really matters....
My husband Bob has named this quilt "Baby Twister".
There are a couple of blocks I really like and have been hoarding for just the right project.
Some vintage fabrics.
As you can see I did a grid quilting on this and love how it turned out. Next time I want to do it but have the lines at different widths. This quilting, it's 1/2" spaced apart.
I turned the edges under and appliqued them down by machine then cut out the background (behind the applique) to reduce bulk. I did not use any fusible.
Some of the fabrics are very light and fade out, I love that look!
Some are pieced and this one happens to be vintage fabrics as well.
I picked this out of my stash for the backing and love how the grid shows up.
This is a block I did for the Lancaster MQG, we are doing a round robin improv style. I used solids and some of my hand dyes for interest.
I accidentally sewed the blue triangle unit down instead of up. To keep it real I didn't change it!
I have had basket quilts on my mind and drafted this block. Even though it is a traditional block I will do it in modern colors, stay tuned!
