Quilt #12 - Star Pop

I finished this quilt for Brooke on Sunday. It's a darling quilt with scattered stars and I quilted with white So Fine and white Bottom Line in the bobbin in a tight stipple in the white background only. This gives a faux Trapunto look and is much easier than adding batting to the stars.




I hope she likes it!

Design Wall Monday - 4/7

Yesterday, in between quilting, I was able to get the rest of the borders on the bright batiks quilt.


This quilt is for a family wedding that occurred in February and I hope that the happy couple think that it is worth the wait.

The pattern is from Judy's website and is called Sunny Side Up. I started with the border fabric and another print that the bride picked out and I selected the rest of the fabrics from those. I added another column of blocks and made the outer border wider to show off the print and to make the quilt a double size.

Tonight, I will head to Joann's to see if I can find anything that will work for a backing. I already have the thread and panto picked out for the quilting.

Stash Report Week 14, 2014

One of these weeks, I am going to bust a ton of stash!!

This week, I only got one border on the batik quilt. I worked late 4 nights an by the time I got home, I had zero energy to work on anything.

Once this border is finished, there are only 2 borders left. Woot!
