I received my copies of the March 2010 issue of The Quilter yesterday. I was quite pleased with how my quilt was photographed:
This quilt is basically a log-cabin quilt, spiced up with appliqued twirly flowers:
The fabrics are from RJR‘s Sweet Pea Collection:
Quilting was done freehand on my home machine with Hobbs’ Tuscany Silk Batt. If you have been visiting me, you would know that The Tuscany Silk Batt has become my favorite batting to use in place of cotton. It quilts very nicely, and is light and very manageable – perfect for a home machine quilter. Can you see the pebbles I have quilted on the log cabin blocks?
In case you are wanting to make this quilt in a different color way, may I offer the following for your consideration?
1. A fresh and clean look
2. An rich look
3. How about a 30’s feedsack look?
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fun day! For those of us who have been living in icy cold, spring shouldn’t be too long from now! Blessings to you all!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to The Quilter, and always, kudos to the editorial staff at The Quilter.
