Next I'll make a couple using Christmas fabrics, inserting a small ruffle around the edges.
And now for the shazam!
I picked up my Black, White and a Shot of Red quilt from the LA yesterday - I love it love it! I started piecing this one just over a month ago when my sister was visiting, and it was a real pleasure to make. I blogged about it here. Unfortunately the reds look a bit orange-y, but they really are red.
Bernerdette did a great job as usual, and she likes the quilt enough to make one of her own.
I don't usually piece my backs but this time I used odd pieces of black and white fabric (with a shot of red!) and it really added some zing to the quilt!
I sewed the binding on yesterday; I just have to finish sewing it down on the back, and she's ready to roll out!
As an extra bonus for the weekend, today I go to pick up my Stars and Stripes quilt, Bern finished it a couple days ahead of schedule because she wants to get out of town ahead of Sandy. I look forward to seeing that one finished, I still remember how the bright stars sparkled among the string blocks! I've pieced other tops using string blocks, but this will be the first one that I've had long-arm quilted.
Well have a great Friday, sew forth and sew on!
