Modern Quilt

This was a Connecting Threads quilt kit I bought around Christmas 2016 when they were having a clearance.

It was easy to piece. The fabrics had a nice hand and the directions were clear.

I was concern that a pantograph would detract from the strong geometric design but I didn’t have time for custom quilting. So I chose the only modern pantograph I have, Bauhaus, and medium light grey thread. It worked!

I used leftovers and some grey and blue fabrics from my stash.

I’m sorry to say I won’t be able to post anymore pictures of the Florida Quilt Show because I had to wipe out my phone and start over. Hopefully I will find another show on my travels this spring and summer.

Thanks for stopping by.



Beau and Quilts

I was trying to lay a QOV on the floor to take a picture and my quilt lover had to be a part of the picture. 10 days later he had another pancreatitis attack and we took his pain so he would have no more. Miss him terribly.



30’s Calendar Quilt

A friend, Liz, made this adorable quilt with small (4 1/2″) 30’s fabric log cabin blocks and hand embroidery. Plumage pantograph.

This is only a portion of the quilt.

I started taking pictures of the embroidery and kept saying just one more. Hard to stop. They’re all so adorable.

Thanks for stopping by.
