Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Progress on Commissioned Quilts



I finished the first of two tops for a customer.  These are both 40″ x 60″ quilts to fold over the backs of love seats.  They will replace antique quilts that don’t need the wear, tear, and washing that these will be able to handle.  We’re using Kona “Snow” for a slightly softer look than bright white, and I’ve had fun working with it.  These 96 5″ HSTs came together quickly.


The 40 6.5″ string blocks will take a bit longer, but you know I don’t mind sewing these!  They’re not tecnically “strings”, since I’m cutting yardage to width, but the same process, using old phone pages.

Hope you’re making progress and staying warm.
I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
