A Short Post…

Looking at my pictures and quilts from last week, this may be a short

post. I do hope you enjoy the pictures and thanks for checking out my blog.

Bernice made this quilt and was quite excited to pick it up and show

her friends. I can not imagine how long it took her to piece this quilt.

Because I finish so many peoples’ quilts, I do not get much time to

piece my own  quilts, so I am beginning to appreciate even more

all the time and hard work that goes into making a quilt.

Bernice chose a cream polyester thread for the top and the backing.

“Flirtatious” is the name of overall design stitched onto the quilt.

The backing.

Again, a solid colored backing always shows off the quilting beautifully.

The Quilting Design

Joann made this beauty. I was really impressed with how perfect the borders

were on this quilt.

 

Joann’s Quilt

This was a $10 Quilt at a local Quilt Shop, in the area, Country Concessions. They

have alot of bolts of fabric and all arranged by colors. It is always a treat to go

there and just look at the fabric ( I am dreaming when I say that).

Joann picked a light blue So Fine polyester thread for the top and the backing.

Stars were stitched all over the quilt;  a design by Lisa Calle.

The backing

The backing is a beautiful deep blue color. I love it! When using a print for

the backing, it is more difficult to see the quilting. It all comes down to

personal preference.

Earlier in the year, I took an online class with Katie Pasquini Masopust.

Yes, that is a mouthful. She is quite the abstract artist and I love some of

her work.   It really surprises me that I like this art type.

This is my attempt at my first abstract art piece. The picture

is a bit dark, so I apologize for that.

Here is a close up view of another area of the piece. Hopefully, I will

get it quilted up this week and bound. Maybe I will show you

the finished piece next week.

Have a great week and check out a Canadian site called

The Needle and Thread Network.
