I can't believe everything that got done this weekend. I had 4 quilts on the ready to be quilted list - they got done! Two more pillowcases that are just super cute and another top waiting to be quilted. Take a look:Ok here's the specs on the quilts complete - all these are for 100 quilts for kids. Big Star free pattern here . Pantograph is Double Bubble by Patricia Ritter. I thought that worked well with the polka dots. I actually made two of these. One is going to Project Linus the other to a not for profit day care center in Churubusco, IN. Glide thread on top, and magna glide bobbin thread. There was a scrap of polyester batting that I used for this, might be Hobbs Poly down, looks like a bit of loft on this one.
|Big Star Back - love flannel on the back, such great definition|
|Disappearing Hour Glass (DHG) - All Flannel|
|quilted with stars|
|Extra Block on the back, I think I like the back better than the front :)|
|Jelly Roll Jam Baby Quilt|
|Super Cute panto, flowers leaves and swirls, all those busy fabrics and you can't see it, but it is really cute|
|Jelly Roll Jam Back - still can't see it, cozy flannel on the back|
DHG Pattern free here I used a bunch of flannel scraps from different backings on this, front and back. The quilt is all flannel, definitely has the snuggle factor that's for sure. Pantograph is Simply Stars by Stonehouse quilting. Glide thread on top, and magna glide bobbin thread. Hobbs 80/20 batting.
Jelly Roll Jam free pattern here Glide thread on top, and magna glide bobbin thread. Hobbs 80/20 batting, nice flannel on the back. Pantograph is Flower Swirls by Debra Geissler.
How's that for a week of finishes!!
I did have some help this weekend, we had strings and blocks and things flying. I pulled out the basket o'fun. That is just so full of strings. And we got this top. The little guy was picking the strings, one ironing, one cutting and one sewing and before you know it, you have a 11 in blocks done, and then the quilt top is together. Rather than doing just plain string blocks, we did string log cabins. Started with a 2.5 in square then just kept going around and around until the block was the right size. The log cabins we stopped at 9.5 in blocks (unfinished) then added 1.5 in white around them (unfinished size) and then a 1 in sashing. 20 blocks and you have a nice size quilt. I love how bright and cheery this is, just like my helpers :) This one is going to Project Linus as well.
|What fun to have so many helpers!!|
