Quilting projects, that is! These are being done for a friend of mine who is a teacher during 9 months of the year and a “mega piecer” during her summer months off!! It’s not that there isn’t any sewing/piecing done during the school year it’s just that she switches into “hyper” gear and blasts through the summer months!!! A couple of weeks ago she brought me 2 smaller quilts and a table runner she wanted me to quilt and Monday was the day to get a move on for me! Now, you know me………there absolutely MUST be feathers somewhere in these….right??? OK, the runner was first and that’s where “they” landed! LOL! The batiks were wonderful to stitch and the Aurifil Mako thread was so smooth. Note: The above pattern is a Sherri K Falls pattern. See this post: https://treadlemusic.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/the-big-question-is-answered/ Edit: pattern currently available here. The next little quilt was a strip pieced one made from a jelly roll. Both the top and backing were flannel (just the thing to be working on when it’s 93F outside…….I’m thankful for central A/C…for sure!!!). I used Isacord thread in the color “Barewood” and stitched fun/funky flowers and leaves which echoed the fabric prints.
The last 2 are not the best for color but you can get an idea of the stitching. The sun was beating in the window and, well, the pictures tell the story. Anyhow, one more quilt to go….hmmmm, what shall I stitch? Follow-up very soon!!
