Wow! Long time, no post. But rest assured it is because I have been very busy creating, but things are still in progress and not ready to post yet or they are gifts that need to wait until they have been received before revealing them here. All in due time...
I did finish up one quilt that does not have a designated recipient so that can make its debut today.
This large lap quilt is made of batik fabrics that I bought as a layercake (pre-cut 10" squares). I added the black background and the green border and binding as well as a bright purple tone-on-tone backing.
The pattern is Ohio Starlight from a Missouri Star Quilt Company video tutorial. I used the same fabrics as they did for the stars.
The quilting was done with a navy blue thread which blended better than a color on the black or a black on the colors. It is a stylized floral that reminds me of calla lily.
This was a delight to quilt. I put in a new needle and had not a single thread break on the whole thing. My thread was very linty so I did a good cleaning of the bobbin race after every pass. This is a 5" repeat pattern so that was a lot of cleaning - but well worth it.
I have 4 more tops ready to be quilted, with their backings and battings prepared. Then I have 14 'kits' cut for quilt tops and one queen top I am working on piecing between other projects.
All will be revealed.... eventually!
