Wow! It's Sew and Tell Friday again!! It has been a really eventful week here in the Nashville, TN area, but I still managed to finish a project - I'm telling you, Sew and Tell Friday has revolutionized my life! I'm always trying to get something done that I can post online.... (If you want to see more of what we've been going through here in Nashville, check out this youtube.com link.)
So - here's my finish for the week This quilt is for our quilt ministry, going to the director of my church's weekday education program.
Take a look at the back of the quilt - the teachers traced each child's hand on the backing and put their name in it so she can remember each one of them. And I love the front of the quilt - this is a disappearing nine-patch pattern, which I had never tried before but I'm glad to have it in my repertoire now! I think I'll be making a lot more of these.
I was inspired by a beautiful pastel quilt I saw recently somewhere online (of course, I can't find it now) but it wasn't until I remembered that I had a charm pack of Moda Kashmir II stashed away that it became a reality. A quick trip to the quilt shop for a little yardage from the Kashmir collection, and some pastel solids from my stash, and this is the result!
I particularly like the quilting on this one, too - I just stitched on either side of each seam. I think it enhances the quilt without overpowering the design...
So what have you been working on this week? I can't wait to see!! Stop by Sew and Tell Friday on amylouwho's blog and check out what everyone's doing!
