Wow! It's Friday again - does it seem like the weeks are getting shorter and shorter to you too, or is it just me? Well, short or not, it's time to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready? Let's get started!
I was kind of worried this week, thinking that I wouldn't have anything whoop-whoop-worthy that I could share (I've been working on some interesting things, but unfortunately they have to stay under wraps for a few more weeks!) and then I remembered that I finished another t-shirt quilt during the 12 Days of Christmas in July quilt-along that I hadn't shared yet! Woohoo!!
This was another large quilt - it ended up being twin size! No photography assistant was available, so I laid it out on the ground to get a full shot.
I really loved the background colors the customer chose for this quilt - a beautiful green called Clover and a soft salmon color called Peach, both of which coordinated with the Reverie of Roses print on the back, which is from the Pretty Roses collection at Connecting Threads.
Can you see the patch in the left border? The client had several patches she wanted included in the top, so they were sewn onto the right and left borders after quilting.
Speaking of quilting, I did my usual triple straight line cross-hatch quilting on this one, using my Hera marker to make the stitching guides. I love that marker - so much easier and neater than chalk, and you don't have to hope it washes out!
Here's a binding shot that shows the quilting pretty well. I used the Peach fabric from the cornerstones to do the binding, too.
And here's one more shot, just because it's pretty!! I really think that's one of my favorite backings ever, and I've got some scraps left over that may become part of a dress for one of my pretty granddaughters - it's so pretty and feminine!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
