Tossed Salad - fresh off the frame

Is done - woohooo!  Man how long has it been since I've started something new?   I guess the table runner was new and was only a couple weeks ago.  I really want to start an Orange quilt.  I have Bonnie Hunters new book and I'm gonna choose one out of there.  I feel the need for a new, brand spanking new project :)

Tossed Salad is served!

Love a pieced back

But in the mean time here's a finish Tossed Salad, this was a mystery quilt from Silly Good Quilts I really wanted to do a panto on this one had a new one that I just love, but it's too hard for me.  I tried and ripped it out and did this.  Two layers of batting  - quilters dream 70/30 blend and dream puff.  Bottom Line in the bottom and 2 strands of bottom line on top.

Oh and do you see what is peaking out behind that first picture?? It's my very first customer quilt - so excited (and nervous)

  2. Sue, you do not need to worry about doing a customer quilt, you're a fabulous quilter. And remember, you're much harder on yourself than a customer is. It will be wonderful! I just love your Tossed Salad, from start to finish.

  22. gorgeous and I can't believe you have never done a customer quilt before. I love this. Two questions- do you get slipping using 2 layers of batting and bunching up of the batting?
    have you ever had pieced backs stretch and buckle on you?

    No pantos here, I only freehand stuff. Your work is divine.

  31. Awesome quilt! I have made one similar but it is still languishing waiting to be quilted. Alas, I think that mine will just be getting pantoed! With the ability to quilt like that you definitely shouldn't be nervous about that customer quilt - they are lucky to have you as their quilter!

  38. That is truly beautiful! Your quilting is breathtaking. I've never tried using 2 strands of Bottom Line before, I will have to try that and see how it works for me. Love the idea of it.

  39. Your toss salad quilt is stunning. Your quilting is fabulous. How could you ever be nervous on a customer quilt with the beautiful quilting that shows here. I think you are being way too modest. It is a show stopper.
