Y'all, LOOK!!!!! It's not finished yet, but it's already getting it's first sick cuddles under it. She has been battling a cold and is slowly losing the fight. She curled into my lap and said she needed the blanket on her, how could I say no. My heart is so full!!!
I finished my wholecloth quilt for the sofa. I’m so happy with it - I’d miscalculated the binding & didn’t have enough of the white text print so it seemed the perfect opportunity to get brave & use some of a quarter yard I had of the black print for one corner. I’d thought it might be a bit boring with the front & back the same crosshatch print but the black bit of binding really pops. It’s a long & skinny quilt 100 inches by 56, made so that it can be a throw for the sofa. I think I used 22 bobbins of thread quilting it - I lost count somewhere in the middle but I know it was a lot of Aurifil 2600 50wt. I quilted vertical (or horizontal?) lines & then a diagonal line pattern for a diamond crosshatch pattern. All of the fabric is from Carolyn Friedlander’s Architextures fabric line, the front & back are the black wideback crosshatch & binding is the white text print with a corner feature of the black text. @carolynfriedlander #carolynfriedlanderfabrics#wholeclothquilt#lowvolumequilt#architextures#architexturesfabric#aurifilthread#straightlinequilting#diamondcrosshatchquilting#diamondcrosshatch#modernquilt#modernquilting#texture#textureandpattern
Let the quilting commence!! 😁 Remember the quilt I got basted on Friday? Well, I’m trying something new with my quilting on this #modernaztecquilt featuring #bequestfabric – so 🤞 it all works out!! You gotta try to know, right?! There will be quite a bit of thread burying on this one, but I think it will be well worth it! If you’re stumped on how to bury threads (which I was for the loooongest time) check-out the tutorial I shared up on the blog #linkinprofile . PS Today is the official kick off of the #bequestfabric blog hop hosted by @briarhilldesigns and @rjrfabrics. My stop is later this month, but there will no doubt be some fun makes shared over the next couple of weeks. Hope you follow along 💓💓 . #shannonfraserdesignspatterns#briarhilldesigns#rjrfabrics#wip#aurifilthread
