Patchwork in the Park



Deconstructed Windmill quilt from the Modern Patchwork magazine by Gosnia click HERE  Notice I tried to recreate her park bench photo shoot. :)

I love the colors in this one.  I used an Ikea backing and it was pretty thick but I love it so much. I did have trouble quilting as the top wanted to pucker up. I had it pin basted but then gave up and tore out the quilting and then tried glue baste but it did the same thing. 
So it is done but I am not so happy with it. I thought by now my quilting would be smooth and straight. Still not happening. Below is my crosscut from the week long IG quilt along by Debbie at A Quilter's Table

I am working on the quilting right now but that is giving me some fits too. I will keep at it.....sigh

Linking up Confessions of a Fabric Addict for can I get a whoop whoop friday!

  1. Beautiful quilts! I love the big geometric pattern of the quilt photographed in the park and the backing is awesome!

  2. I like both quilts and I especially like the crosscut quilt with the border in the dark colors. That is a great idea and would be perfect for a big quilt, too.

  4. I like the windmills and that backing is fabulous! Are those the fabrics we bought together? I love how your crosscut came together, the red border blocks really set it off!

  5. Your quilts are amazing, Kris - the front and back of the first in particular! And I love that you used a different background for the outer blocks of your crosscut. Very creative! Whoop whoop!!
