Cheese and other Dreams...
Cheese and other Dreams.........
approx 32" x 32"
I decided to do the Quilts my Way Sew all Around Quilt Along with Gosia. I am sure you have seen some of her work and so you know she is very talented. She is calling this wall hanging Lemon Juice. I was thinking of that when I was picking out my fabrics but the periwinkle grunge and my hand dyed yellows made me think of cheese and the moon. Really a fun quick project. I love the graphic frames created with the two shades of gray. I did not pin...I admit it. I got out my glue pen and glued the pieces together in about 25 minutes and they were ready to sew and press. So quick and fun.
I used the walking foot on my BabyLock Jane but realized it does not have a seam bar so I had to mark all my 1" quilting rows. I love my Hera marker and my neighbor gave me a super long acrylic ruler. All worked like a charm.
In other progress, I dug out 2 quilts I had started back in January for my local Lincoln Quilts for Kids group.
This is some fun minion fabric that I used in the simple blocks. I could not take a flat picture because of the wind and I want to deliver these 2 tomorrow so I just went with this. *Note...I had to crawl through some brush and climb up a berm to get out of the wind to take this!! :)
This one was a partical piece of lattice work that someone else made and I was gifted it at a white elephant exchange. It actually was in two parts and so I made two quilts with it. One last year I believe. Finally got this one put together.
Still windy but this was a tiny bit better so I grabbed a couple more shots to show how I just color blocked some fabric to make this wide enough to be a nice kids size quilt. Simple quilting of organic lines across quilt.
Plus everything is turning green after the rains last week.
