Happy Canada Day!! Canada is now 147 years old-wow! I hope that you get
the chance to go out and celebrate, at some point today.
Mina took a class in a local fabric shop, in Barrie and this
is what she created. She did a great job and the fabrics are really
Mina chose “Spring Garland”, a pantograph as her quilt design.
A light taupe polyester thread was used on the top and in the bobbin
for the backing as well.
Here is a pieced block within the bedrunner.
And here is what the backing looks like. A solid taupe color as
well. The stitching really stands out on the back.
Carol is a tremendous and quick piecer. I am amazed at how fast
she can create a quilt.
Carol wanted SID in the sashing areas and around each block. A variegated
blue thread was used in the sashing area, due to all the different colored fabrics
in has in it. I think the variegated thread was a good choice for this area.
A close up of the sashing area. It is too bad that the SID is so
invisible but it is so necessary to help outline all the shapes and
stablilize the quilt too.
The solid blue blocks were stitched with straight lines.It does give
the quilt a bit of a modern look.
On the backing, I used a dark blue polyester thread to match
the color too.
On my week # 2 of Fabric Postcards, I have nothing to show you but I am hoping to
complete one for Friday. I think that my theme this week will be “Vegetables.’
