The season has begun! This was a collection of 4 small quilts that I loaded on a wide backing, to help keep the cost down for the piecer. Otherwise, my minimum charge per piece would have been $50.
The top two were custom quilted.
Mmm. Love the motif in the white squares.
And, HEY! This is MINE!
I picked up a jelly roll last year for $15.00. Our bed is a king, so there is no way one jelly roll was going to do the trick. It was supplemented with a collection from my stash. I ended up needing 71 strips all together, including the sashing & cornerstones.
I pieced this on my spring retreat up at Margaret's. And since I didn't have a border fabric I was happy with, I went shopping in her basement. :-) Gotta love yer friends, eh? She had JUST enough of the lovely red print - all that is left are scraps.
Pieced leftovers on the back. My stash report will look much better after this.
Quilted with a pantograph. Coincidentally, this is the companion border design for the motif in the top quilt. I splurged and used a wool batt in this. My absolute favorite batting to put in a bed quilt. Lightweight, poofy, and very comfortable to sleep under. NOT difficult to wash. At least, no more of a struggle than making yourself do any of your other laundry. I carry Hobbs Wool, but it's kind of expensive. If you are in the USA you can find it much cheaper. Yes, this is me, shooting myself in the foot.
Have a second piece of pumpkin pie this weekend.
