Yup…..a tale that was last seen here, with this added “feathered swirl” stitching motif tutorial detail here, is now this ‘finish’ that I’m completely in love with!!!!!!! With its mix of flannel and cotton charm squares, setting triangles and borders, what started out as the needed workshop demo project has become a quilt I would really like to have around!!!!! The challenge (for me) was to have the light fade to darkness and, if you look back to the original pattern, you will see how this was a tricky endeavor requiring MUCH visualizing and a design wall. I used 2 charm packs of “Primitive Muslin” and 1 pack of cotton “Count Your Blessings” prints, to add some variety! I’m almost ready to have a go at another such setting…….BUT, a few things must be taken care of first. You will see what I mean in the next few posts.
Thread: (top) Glide, 40wt (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro, 70wt. Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly (80/20), black!
Onward to the day. And a very warm one, here in the Rio Grande Valley…..Temps around 90 with humidities guaranteed to make my hair frizz!!! LOL! Thanks to y’all (oops, another TX insert!!!) for popping in!!! Sending hugs….always…….
For starters: Current temp in Faribault is 5 degrees.
These fabric colors make me think autumn. Beautiful.
And the flannels I used would help that thought along! 90F forecast for today. Toasty! LOL! Stay warm!!!! Hugs………
Oh yes that turned out awesome! Glad to know it warmed up a bit down there for you, but you could share you don’t need all that do you, LOL a whole 13 deg. for today:(
I would love to share……like at least 20 degrees. 90F today with stickiness…….an August MN day!!!!! LOL! NOT complaining, though!!!!!!! Yup….awesome! Thnx for stopping by!!!!!!
This is a great quilt, it makes me feel warm, which is good, because we got 3-4 more inches of snow last night. No wind, though, so it is fluffy and sparkles in the moonlight. Cold though…5 above for a high today….come on spring!!!!
And here they’re having above average temps! 90+ today with some interesting humidity levels. Unusual! Guess a little A/C is called for……….warm and cozy is the feeling I get, too, and I love it!!!!!
So pretty! I love the colors.
Me, too. Not exactly appropriate for here so it will likely be coming home with me.
Looks great just what you envisaged, light fading to dark. 🙂 Those are colours I like too. I’m fond of the Civil War fabrics because they usually contain somber colours with a red or something else to add a brightness.
I’m thinking “The Sun Still Shines” for a name. I really like it, too! So great to “see” you! Hugs……………..
That sounds the perfect name. Hugs to you too.
