Good Morning, Monday Main Crushers!
Today I’m sharing a sweet pink quilt made by Robin for her sweet granddaughter.
Isn’t it fabulous?
Robin asked for the quilting to be ‘something girly’, so I chose to use the Smitten digital design I used on the wedding quilt made by my sister. I mean, you can get more girly than swirls and hearts, right?
I really do like the way this design stitches out. It looks good big or small, or somewhere in between. I used a dark pink thread both top and bobbin, and it pops on the backing, which is grey swirl print.
I’m sure Robin’s granddaughter will love her new quilt. I know I do!
This was just one of the quilts I finished last week. I also quilted a monster that took up almost every inch of my 12 foot quilting frame. It measures 121″ x 128″!! I wasn’t able to get pictures for this post – it was after dark by the time I finished the trimming. I refer to is as ‘that beast of a quilt’ because it was so big and heavy. Every time I mentioned it my hubby knew exactly which quilt I was talking about. LOL
Students who took a class on ‘Painted Stars‘ were laying out their quilt blocks in class on Tuesday. I snapped a quick picture of Kam’s blocks before she starting putting them together. She is using the loveliest turquoise-y / blue / green batik fabrics.
This quilt will be so beautiful when it’s finished and I can’t wait to see it sewn all together! Kam and her friends have plans to make a red/white/blue version which I think will be just gorgeous. One of the ladies said to me “I like this pattern. It’s easy and fun, and I’m going to make more quilts with it.” That just made my day! It’s so nice to hear such lovely feedback on something I worked so hard on.
Let’s see what you’ve been working on! What has you excited to be in your sewing space? We would love to see. You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
