Quite a few of you have written to tell me you saw my Attention to Detail table runner in the current (June 2011) issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. Some wondered why I hadn’t posted about it on the blog.
Well, the reason is that my little tablerunner is late returning to me. It had tagged along American Patchwork & Quilting staff and done some traveling to quilt guild meeting(s?) since the publish of the magazine.
It’s back with me now! Got it yesterday. Being featured in American Patchwork & Quilting is another first for me. So I am super excited about it.
You can see the applique is poofed up from being quilted over Hobbs Tuscany Wool batting. For the actual quilting, I used YLI 100 silk instead of my usual Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton to give the overall quilting a finer look. The fabrics are a combination of Anything but the Kitchen Sink, Jinny Beyer Palette, and Pindots – all by RJR.
Taking a little detour here… These butter leaf cookies are the STUFF! I had picked up a box of the cookies at the store because they were on sale. Now, I wish I had picked up ten boxes instead of one. They taste a lot like the Danish cookies I used to love when I was a child, except they are much richer !!!
Back to quilting, the magazine showed my quilting schematic on one of the pages. Take a look for ideas if you have trouble deciding what to quilt on a block like the one featured in the project.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely day. Now for the very serious question of the day: Are you a fan of those Danish cookies I talked about?
I spent the last few days working with these fabrics…. many are from RJR’s new 30’s Everything but the Kitchen Sink collection. Take a look at the fabrics here:
I added to the fabrics a few scraps from my own stash, and came up with this quilt:
It is the first of a few special projects I am doing for a publishing company. More details about these projects when the time gets closer.
Can you see the quilting motif I did on the blocks? The quilting motif was an applique motif I used for my Roslynn quilt from way back when… the moral of the story is, when you are scratching your heard trying to come up with a quilt motif, you might try looking through some applique motifs for some ideas. :)
Thanks for stopping by. Off to my next quilt – all I can say is it is a girly sweet one! Meanwhile, have a lovely autumny day!
I shipped off my Spring Clusters project to American Patchwork & Quilting, yay! If all things go well, the project should be featured in their spring 2011 issue!
The fabrics are a combination of Jinny Beyer’s Palette, Anything but the kitchen sink, and Pin Dots by RJR Fabrics:
Upon completion of my recent projects, I have been taking care of some paperwork for upcoming quilts. I can, however, hear the next project calling my name – so, I am going to fly! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
