This week I finished this pair of special order quilts. Both are made with the same fabrics and Kona Snow. They will head off in the mail today to brighten a pair of loveseats in the customer’s living room. Currently there are antique quilts there, and these will be a fresher and more washable alterative.
These quilts are great small sizes (40″ x 60″, 40″ x 65″), so they were quick and fun to put together and to quilt. Well, this triangle one cost me a day, but that was due to my own math challenges. Yes, to make HST blocks, you add 7/8″ to the finished size of your desired block. I will remember that now! I’m happy with the straight line quilting, especially now that it’s washed and crinkly. I quilted in all the ditches, and then 1/2″ away on both sides with the walking foot and white Bottom Line thread.
The string quilt wasn’t really strings, but 1 1/2″ strips cut from yardage. I quilted it in the ditches with Bottom Line, and then added huge leaves with white Sulkey rayon thread. I didn’t count, but I think there about 32 leaves all over the quilt.
All and all, a fun project to brighten this oppressive winter.
Can’t wait to see what you’ve finished.
