Plaid Obsession and QOV

Terri from MI sent me another QOV that I finished up this week.  I just love this one.  The red and white material is not really pieced but I did STID as if it was.  Nice stripes.  And then free had feathers in the blue and setting triangles.  Continuous curve on the Star and feathers in the background of the star blocks.  This one went pretty fast.   So fine on top, bottom line in the bobbin and Hobbs 80/20 batting.  Pattern In Honor of http://www.fonsandporter.com/articles/In_Honor_Of_patriotic_quilt_of_valor_quilt



And here's Easy Street all pieced and ready to quilt.  I just have to quilt something that's on the top of my "waiting to be quilted list" first..  Easy street turned out pretty big, 102ish square.  I think I'll do a panto on this one.  And yes I have one of those four patches sitting the wrong way and I'm just going to leave it :)  My grey is light enough it just blends in.

I started something new last week, just love this one.  I've wanted to make this quilt for so long.  I have enough strings to possibly make 3!  I can never estimate how many are needed.  This one definitely has a red, white and plue theme to it.  Maybe QOV donations, hmm that or Happy Chemo.

  3. What a beautiful design for that QOV! And your quilting really enhances it beautifully! Love the border on your Easy Street! It is so amazing to me how each one has a different look depending on its colors and border treatments :*)

  8. AWESOME as always, Sue...Your quilting choices are spot-on! Your Easy Street will be awesome quilted out, can hardly wait to see that.

    I have spent almost as much time 'ripping out' my four patches and spinning them in the right direction and re-sewing, as I have piecing the main quilt top - might be finished if it weren't for that!

    Like you, I'm leaning towards a panto in fact, Shangri-La from urbanelementz.com is looking like the one. Haven't had a chance to audition it just yet, but I'm getting excited - only 4 more Part VIII blocks to go prior to assembly - YEAH!

    Thanks for all the inspiration to keep on keepin' on,

  9. The QOV is outstanding. I especially like the quilting in the blue triangles.

    The string quilt on the end of the post is also one I'm going to do sooner then later. Yours is coming along just great.

  11. Of course your quilting is outstanding, as usual. And no wonder you do such great feathers, you really do a lot of them. ;-) And I really like the piano key border on Easy Street. My "turned wrong" piece was a flying goose and it stayed. With all that perfection, I needed a humble piece. :-O

  12. Your quilting is wonderful. I like the new project you are working on. Lots of strings. Are they in a planned color way or are you just grabbing and using them?
