Red and White Final…………..

Missouri Star Quilt Co. “Disappearing Pinwheel…version 3” is completed (you can find the beginnings of this quilty journey here)…….stitched, washed and beautifully crinkly……………………….005  The lighting was not the best for the above photo so there’s a ‘ton’ of color distortion. Below is how it actually turned out (washed with 3 Shout “Color Catchers” which are quite pink now!!!!!)




003  Yes, the backing is that ‘pink’!!! The darkest spots really match the red that’s on the front, so ………….bright is what it definitely is!!!! LOL!

Threads used were, once again, Connecting Threads Essential Pro Poly, 70wt in Turkey Red (top and bobbin) and Invisifil, 100wt, white.

The days are counting down to the approaching holiday season and the “pressure” mounts!!!! On to my quilting…….. Thanks so much for stopping by…..I really so enjoy our visits and, please, come again…………………………

    Looks great. Love the colors and quilting. I have my Gypsy quilt about done. Have 4 rows to sew together. I worked on it Friday, Monday and Tuesday. (Was home with a nasty cold) Hope you do not get it. Thanks for the outing last week.

      Feeling fine……so far! Totally enjoyed our jaunt and ready for another into “uncharted waters”!!!!! So many shops/so little……$$$, time, energy, etc………….

  4. Once again you have shown us the beauty that can be created from stitching and fabric in the hands of an artist. Beautiful.

    OK, can you explain a Shout color catcher?

    • treadlemusic says:

      They are a small sheet of something like a fabric softener sheet that “catches” dyes that get released in the wash water/washing machine when laundered the first few times. When the item goes into the dryer, it’s best that the sheet(s) go with it/them. They are found on the same/nearby shelf as the fabric softener sheets and are trademarked “Shout Color Catchers”. Great for any clothing item that combines a very light and very dark fabric (ex: red/white)! They are awesome and I usually have 2 boxes on the shelf!!!!

  5. This is so gorgeous and yay for the safety net of Color Catchers with red & white beauties! I had a red backing fabric that bled unexpectedly even after prewashing and several washes with them did their thing.

    It really turned out beautiful!

      It did……I would hesitate recommending this Missouri Star Quilt Co. technique to a beginner quilter, though (unless there was previous experience with lots of bias edges!!!!!!). Disappearing Hourglass in ocean hues is next up (as soon as the fabric comes…..Monday, I think…Connecting Threads order!). So glad you stopped by. I bet the Autumn foliage is beautiful your direction!!!!!! Hugs…………….
