The Story of a quilt
First you find a book that you LOVE
then you try to decide on one pattern from that book
The is Framed from Camille Roskelly's Simply Retro book
Then you pick fabric
Love this mix of colour!!
and you get to work
cutting all that wonderful fabric up......
just so you can sew it back together again
(makes no sense, I know)
Then you find a good show to watch (listen to in the background)
while you piece yourself a quilt top
Then you fold up that wonderful quilt top and you put it away for 6 or so months
while you start and finish some other quilt.....;)
Then one day you decide
"I think I will finally finish that quilt)
and you pull it out of the closet and remember that you liked
the colours and patterns of that quilt top and wonder "why did I not finish this before now??"
When I was auditioning fabric for the binding
my hubby walked by and said "you need some green"
he was SO right, I love the lime green binding
I had a beautiful sunny day
and my boys were willing to help me out!
(im SO happy I have grass and a yard to take pictures in)
I free motion quilt this quilt on my home machine
the third one I have done
I had great issues with this one,
my Aurifil thread kept breaking, and was pulling the bobbin thread to the front,
my Wonderfil thread had the same issues,
and yes I was trying all kinds of things with my machine as well
Switched to my Superior thread and the rest went like a dream, guess my machine
just likes the Superior thread!!
I love the brightness of this quilt, at 63x63 it is the perfect cuddle size
(and my youngest son has already decided it is his quilt)
and one just for fun
the wind was not really cooperating with us
Thanks for stopping by
(See that row of little trees in the background
there are over 700 Lilcas, Willows and Spruce trees,
we planted then for a wind break last year,
I am off to go weed them now, so I can enjoy a week at the lake next week!!!)
