The quilt is currently being quilted by one of my awesome, talented machine quilters, LeAnne Olson. Can you see her hands holding the quilt top up? I just finished getting it ready to go to her this weekend so that I could get it quilted and get you the supply list. I will have the completed quilted quilt picture for you on the 1st of September.
Here is a picture of it before it's quilted:
|closer view of star and sashing|
Size: 54" x 68"
3 3/4 yards main light for background for blocks, sashing and outer border
12 fat quarters of dark fabrics for blocks, sashing and binding (I used reds)
3 1/2 yards backing
Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion
Contest, contest, contest!! If you noticed, I don't have a name for this quilt. Leave a comment on your suggestion for a name and if I use it, I will send you the Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion! I will leave the contest open until next Wednesday so you have a full week to come up with a name. Have fun!!
What else is new?! You ask. Well, I finally put 2 of my other new patterns on my website.
First, Tropical Nights:
|Using fat quarters of batiks and one background, Tropical Nights is a great size at 69" x 81"|
|Frame up those picture prints in this 66" x 78" lap quilt. Fat quarter friendly.|
Thanks for stopping by!
