A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a quilt top I made using jelly roll Fabrics (42″ x 2.5″ strips). I bought the fruit fabric a few years ago and finally decided to use it.
I had some very strong reactions (both good and bad) to the orange fabrics….well I love the orange…and I had some more strips but not quite enough so I made some strips with orange and black for a total of 40 strips. I also used 3 yards of green fabric. I have all the blocks made and I am now playing with the arrangement of the blocks. Here are the 2 contenders.
The lighting was bad today so the colors aren’t showing as bright as they really are but you can get the idea. All that green area is perfect for some detailed hand quilting!
I have been continuing to hand quilt the New York Beauty
And adding more to the pile of vintage tops (this is only a small portion)
Some of my friends from the Facebook group , Celebrate Hand Quilting, have sent me pictures of my quilt in the AQS show in Paducah.
I think it is time to start looking for inspiration for something to submit next year. I think something less traditional for next year…but hand quilted for sure!
Back to work on some hand quilting for now…
I want to get this done this weekend.
Almost forgot…Teddy feels bad when he isn’t in a post
