I just got this quilt back from the long arm quilter. She makes the dullest quilt come alive. It’s always nice to have a great quilter to step in when there isn’t time to quilt a large quilt.
The quilt looks as if it is woven. It is so easy to make. It consists of four rail fences around a center block. A partial seam method is used to piece it together. All the blocks have the same coloration.
I pulled all the fabric from the bin to find binding fabric to match the outside border. There was a little of the dark blue dragon fly fabric left in the bottom of the bin. When I cut it and sewed it to the quilt, I had two inches left over. No more dark blue dragon flies. It’s a good thing.
It could be that I am tired of using the Japanese fabric. There is another quilt at the long arm quilter with this fabric. I also made the Moda blocks with it. I have two more patterns to make with this fabric and there will be still lots more left. There is hope that after the next two quilts, there won’t be anything left and I can start quilting with fabric from the other fabric drawers. Maybe even finish a few UFOs or make something with orphan blocks.
It’s April. I must remember to take down the March wall hanging and replace it with the April wall hanging. Also think about making a new dress for Annie Louise.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
