QUILT # 70 ! Can you believe it? I hardly can, myself.
Since starting quilting in September 2010 I have made:
5 full-size quilts
1 twin-size quilt
3 queen-size quilts
1 king-size quilt
50 lap quilts (37 for charity)
Total - 70 quilts!
I just finished this one using a block pattern called delectable mountains and arranged it in a manner I think resembles an Aztec blanket.
I found the bright floral in the 'managers special' section of my favorite fabric store for 40% off. SO BRIGHT!
Right across the aisle were these yummy tone-on-tone brights that picked up the yellow-green, coral and teal from the print and they were 35% off. Gotta take the hint.
Then, gotta hang on to them for a year or so waiting for design inspiration. I got it when I watched a Craftsy quilting series and saw the ease of constructing the delectable mountains block. I cut up ALL the floral and then enough of each of the three brights to match up with them (1/3 of the blocks with each color).
When I tried to lay them out I realized that I needed something to separate the bright blocks. I pulled purple out of the stash for some sashing and bordering - it was another color in the floral.
The floral has black lines in it so I did the quilting with loops through only the floral areas. Then I stitched in the ditch all the purple bands.
This will be going off to the hospital for Passages.
