Intersections

I finished up this quilt last week. I’d been working on it for quite a bit of time… It’s basically the quilt version of these placemats that are in Quilt Scene. The quilting took me forever and I have to admit – while I love the results, it’s hard to stay motivated to get this dense straight line quilting done. But now it’s finished and I couldn’t be happier with it!

Intersections

The orange is a shot cotton and in person really adds to the quilt – those shot cottons are so pretty with the depth of color they have.

Here’s a detail of the back… always easier to see the quilting on the back!

I finished up this quilt!

Lots of dense straight line quilting that fills in the piecing pattern and then continues across the rest of the quilt.

Here’s a detail of the quilting on the back… All that stopping and starting with the straight lines takes a lot of time, but it’s so worth the end results!

Happy weekend to all of you!

The LAMQG had its November meeting last night. It was time for the reveal of our projects for the Habitat Challenge. You can see all of the projects here if you’d like.

We Skyped with Jay McCarroll and it was a a ball…He is a total crack up.

Then he hung out with us as we all showed our projects. He was so great about giving individual feedback to everyone!

Here’s the quilt I made. It’s similar to the other one I recently made.

Habitat Challenge quilt

For the challenge we were allowed to add all the solids we wanted, but only use the Habitat line otherwise. I took these pictures after washing the quilt so it’s nice and crinkly!

I used more of the line on the back, along with my go to Kona Coal.

A quilt and a winner

The LAMQG had its second anniversary meeting on Monday night. It’s crazy how quickly those two years have gone by and how much The MQG has grown since then!

We coordinated an anniversary swap and I was sewing for Liz. Her adorable little baby girl is right at the age where they can always use one more quilt to put on the floor, so I quickly put together a little one for her.

LAMQG swap quilt

I had to use scraps she gave me and I could only add one new fabric. Obviously I added the yellow. Oh and I cheated and added the binding too. Figured a stripy binding was worth a little cheating!

Another finished quilt!

Ok – so I have no clue what to name this one so if you have bright ideas please leave ‘em in the comments! This is the one I was starting back here

Commission

I have been leaning more and more on non-block based quilt designs but I also love to improv. piece so I have been thinking of ways to combine the two. I feel like this quilt is a good example of that. Personally, I love it.

Commission Detail

I quilted with dense straight lines (as usual – expect to see a whole lot more of this outta me – I’m loving it these days) and then less densely through the piecing. You can see the quilting really well on the back.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
