Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you had a lovely Father’s Day weekend.
I am happy to share with you today Fanciful, one of three “real” quilts included in my DVD or online machine quilting class, Machine Quilting Level 2, offered by Annies, with which you can practice the quilting skills you learn from the class presentation. You will receive complete instructions, as well as full-sized applique templates, on how to construct the quilt top for Fanciful with the purchase of the class.
In constructing Fanciful, I mixed regular cotton quilting fabrics with batiks to see if I would like the effect. The star blocks and the white and light taupe you see are of regular cotton quilting fabrics, while the rest are batik fabrics. I have to say I am really pleased with the visual effect of mixing batiks and regular cotton fabrics in the same quilt. And of course, this exclusive project was designed with LOTS of quilting opportunities in mind… thus the vast expanse of negative space!
You will be able to see the quilting close-up in the class presentation toward the conclusion of the class as I walk you through on how I quilted all three of the real quilt projects presented in the class.
If you have been visiting here for a while, you will know that I am an Aurifil addict, specifically for their Mako 50 weight thread, with which I had quilted nearly all my quilts, including Fanciful. The batting used for this quilt is Hobbs Tuscany silk batting.
You may click here for a free preview of the class. Of course, if you have any questions – you know where to find me. :) I hope you are having a good summer.
We are traipsing about here and there… while I am attempting to find time to work on some very exciting things for the coming Fall and the coming year.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely week!
