My garden trolls have been at it again.
This is the quilt hubby and I have on our bed. It was the first queen size quilt I had ever made and quilted. The pattern is one I created as I went along. Using fabrics from Joann's to quilt stores from Indiana to Michigan.
A couple of weekends ago, KT and I had a morning together to spend shopping. We decided not dine in, but do drive thru at MickeyD's to give us more time oggling and petting fabrics.
These came home with me:
as the start of a stash for a new quilt. Erin McMorris's Weekends. Michael Miller Dumb Dot. Heather Bailey Freshcut. Amy Butler Midwest Modern.
Heather Bailey Nicey Jane. Paula Prass Summer Soiree. Amy Butler Midwest Modern (KT and I split a yard from her online source!). Anonymous lime green and pink. Martha Negley Mum Toss.
And some friends that followed them home!
Heather Bailey Fresh Cut. Amy Butler Love. Kate Spain Verna. Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope (thanks to Penny for sharing the love). And this scrumptious orange daisy print
whose origin escapes me!. LOL
I finished the back, quilting and binding on the as yet unnamed quilt. Thank you for all of your suggestions, but the quilt hasn't screamed out "Hey! I want to be called ........." yet. I feel like I've brought home a newborn without a name on the birth certificate! Very unsettling.
Huge thanks to those of you who knew what to call these little square blocks. Hee hee. I love learning something new every day! Setting squares are "Solid, pieced, or appliquéd squares placed between the focal-point quilt blocks to set off a design" from http://wiki.allpeoplequilt.com/page/Setting+squares.
I auditioned several fabrics for the binding, but chose this fabric
in the end. It's from Joann's and was some hubby love bought for me as a birthday gift!
was pieced using more Wonky Log Cabin blocks without the white sashing in between, more lucious Fresh Cut and a vintage, polka dot sheet. I quilted it using straight lines to the side of the seams. Really enjoyed the ease and speed of this type of quilting compared to stippling!
Here's a sad attempt to show the quilting. Now that I'm almost done, the sun has decided to come out and play. Sorry, I'm too lazy to take another shot and download it to the computer! LOL
This week, I will be having a guest poster share his talent with you!
Hope today is a good one and that there's some sewing time for us all in it!
