My log arm quilter texted me yesterday to let me know that the five quilts I left with her on Aug 24 were done and ready for me to pick up. I’ve made 20 quilt tops during the pandemic and these are the first that have actually be finished.
Here’s the first one. This is an Aboriginal fabric quilt that will go to my brother and his wife.
I just LOVE how this turned out. It’s always exciting to see a quilt top turned into a finished quilt.
Look at all these amazing fabrics! The colors and designs are so amazing!
The photo below shows the quilting. The design is called Malachite. It’s basically a squiggly sprial that was quilted using a light gray thread. It’s pretty perfet.
Here’s a look at the backing. It’s pretty special too!
The next quilt is this one that will be a holiday gift. This is so happy and cheerful!
I really love that border and the binding! What a great choice!
Oh man… look at that border and binding!
And the quilting was done with a dark yellow/golden thread in a floral pattern. I love the way this turned out.
This next quilt is a scrappy batik wedge quilt. It’s quilted with a musical instrument design. it’s for someone who just started their first job as an elementary music teacher. It’s hard to find the musical instruments.
These photos show the quilting a little better.
It’s a fun and casual quilt, which I love!
Last up is another Aboriginal fabric quilt. It’s almost exactly the same as the other, but there are some different fabrics here and the backing is different.
Good grief! That’s so gorgeous.
I’m in the middle of making another 100 greeting cards with the Philip Jacobs brassica on them. I will easily get them done this weekend. However, I provably get much done in y sewing room as I’ve got another weekend of sheep on tap. I’m really looking forward to some time outside and just having a grand old time with the dogs and some friends.
I spent a few minutes last night playing with the Philip Jacobs print scraps. I found a design that I’m having some fun with. But it just drives home the fact that I don’t have the patience for all that handwor
It would be fun to do a set like this but it’s really slow!
I’m going to give some more thought to my new denim bag this weekend. I’d like to get some measurements taken and have a good idea of what I have to to do make this bag.
I have a few photos of Frankenbags to share, but I’m really tired and I have to go to bed so I can be on the road tomorrow morning before 7 an.
