Adijane is the name of this quilt pattern. I picked it up last year
at Thimbles and Things, in Orilla, for my niece who is getting married
this coming weekend. I am both shocked and amazed that it is actually
finished, quilted and bound. I spent last Saturday quilting it- only 12 hours.
I wanted to quilt some light designs onto it but that didn’t happen. It seems
like I have to fill in every possible nook and cranny on a quilt.
Because it is a “Modern Quilt”, I tried to quilt modern motifs onto it.
Some of the designs are from Jennifer Ricca, a longarmer in Orilla. This
particular design is not. I have seen it in several books I have so I
thought that it would fit the space.
In the large white areas, I stitched straight lines. It makes
the quilt look very industrial looking; I hope my niece
I think that this is my most favorite block on the whole quilt.
Pebbles and swirls make up the stitching.
In the space between these two areas, more swirls and pebbles.
Greek Keys have never been a favorite of mine but they are
growing on me. I am intrigued by how the pattern changes when
the light hits in at a certain angle. It doesn’t even look like Greek
Due to the rush I was in, I didn’t applique the circles onto
the top. I placed them on and zigzagged around them. It does
make the edges ragged but it should still hold together.
More circles and straight lines.
In the dark blue section, I quilted in more wavy lines, in a dark blue
This is actually the top of the quilt. I followed Jennifer’s lead and
stitched in circles in this area. I do love circles but you can see any
slight mistake with them.
This large blue area received cross hatching.
Another lonely circle but it has the squares all around it.
The backing of the quilt. Not sure if this backing would fit into
the “Modern” theme though.
As I mentioned before, here is week #2 of the Fabric Postcard Challenge.
I found this picture on the Net and copied it in fabric. Flowers are now the
theme for this week’s Challenge. My mom loves Pansies so it was an easy
choice and I can send it to her later.
Here is the finished postcard. It is now on its way to my mom.
I didn’t quite find the exact bluish purple for the outside but this is
all part of the learnign experience.
This piece of fabric started out as a totally white piece of cotton.
I traced the pansy onto the white fabric and then colored it in
with Prismacolor Pencils. Then, I stitched the lines onto the
flower with matching thead. As a last step, I placed a white
piece of cotton on the back and zig zagged all around the edge.
I am amazed that you can actually send these through the mail.
I just received one from Janet ( What comes next.com) for
Canada Day. Her postcard is beautiful!
They are alot of fun to create and so fast as well.
Have a great week!
