I am on a roll!! This was a top before I moved to Nevada and is finally a quilt. I needed a Spring/summer update for our bed and with company coming soon, it gave me the push I needed. This is a Weeks Ringle quilt pattern called Share and Share Alike. I used an Urban Elementz panto called Cumulus to get this big girl (90 x 102) finished. Given more time or a smaller quilt, I probably would have done free motion but love that it is finished. I put the binding on completely by machine for the first time. I still love the look of a hand stitched binding but the machine binding is a huge time saver.
I’m waiting on a backing so I can finish 2019 #4 but until then I have some orphan blocks that will become a cover for my big hassock . Not sure how this will end up but it’s a starting point .
Another finish and not the one I anticipated in February. My Antebellum Album quilt top is complete but it got pushed to the side by this one.
I put this together in about 10 days. It’s for a special someone who lives on the east coast who needs a hug! Since I’m in Nevada, I’m sending a quilted hug. I love this Villa Rosa pattern called Tiffany which uses 2.5 strips. I usually would do free motion quilting but wanting to get it out quick I used an Urban Elementz panto called Cool Beans which looks fabulous. I will definitely be making one of these for myself.
In other news, an old quilting companion has died.
This old gal has been with me since 2006 She has been a bit leaky of late but on Sunday she just gave up. Goodbye old friend 😥! So today I replaced her with a Rowena who has big shoes to fill.
