Summer time…

I am not sure about you but summer time makes me lazy.

All I want to do is lie in a hammock and take a quiet afternoon

nap. No doubt that this attitude has been cutting into my

quilting time.

Here are a few of the quilts that I have managed to complete

for customers.

Barb’s Quilt

Barb really likes this pattern. Who can blame her?

And batiks, you can’t go wrong with them.

Barb chose an overall design called “Flirtatous;” another

one of her favorites as well. If you like something alot, you might

as well stick with it.

A light purple So Fine thread was used for the top and the

backing. Tension issues are at a minimum then, especially in

the summer with the humidity.

The backing is pretty interesting as well. I really love

pieced backing, as it adds more interest to the back. It

also looks like a totally different quilt; two quilts for the

price of one, not bad indeed.

A soft flannel green fabric was used for the backing. Adding

more of the piecing from the quilt top is quite smart and also

uses up some of the leftovers.

Karen made this quilt. I am seeing more Downton Abbey fabrics

and quilts lately. The prints are very interesting. I think that the

Dresden Plate is seeing a resurgence in popularity lately as well.

Karen wanted an all over pattern so she chose “Blossoms.”

And we used a light purple polyester thread for the top and

backing as well.

The design shows up nicely between the Dresden Plates.

I really like the purple border and how it is pieced together.

Adds more interest than your typical 2 pieces of fabric borders.

The backing has the title of the  British’s Show-Downton

Abbey-printed on it.

Hoping you are enjoying the warm weather and getting

more quilting done than I am.

    This is the second new Dresden I’ve seen today, so maybe it is making a comeback. These quilts are stunning. I love those DA fabrics. They really are pretty, aren’t they? Those blues and purples work so well. Love your quilting, too. It looks great on the backs where it has a real opportunity to shine.
