Finally, after a lot of procrastination, I finished the cot quilt for my dear grandson, I wish I had made it bigger but I was using what I had on hand. I ran out of the orange stripe in the inner border that I wanted to use for the binding but found an orange check that seemed good. I'm very pleased it's finished.
I have to show off some delicious fabrics that arrived this week. The two toiles are from a Jennifer Paganelli line from way back, I was really wanting the purple version but I don't think any could be found now.
These are a mix of Tanya Whelan fabrics, some of which may end up as pillowcases.
Wonderful mail again today. I can't say enough great things about Patsy Thompson's machine quilting DVD's, I've been meaning to get this one since last year. It only arrived today so I haven't watched it all yet. Patsy has a way of taking the fear out of machine quilting and making it seem do-able.
Tuesday nights are quilting nights for a small group I belong to that meet in each other's homes, there are nine of us. My friend Connie from the group kindly gave permission for me to photograph the quilt on her wall while we were there last night. Unfortunately, the photos don't do it justice and these were taken with a flash.
Connie hadn't been quilting for long when she did the class for a reversable log cabin quilt done with Asian fabrics. It's more of a coverlet since it doesn't contain any batting, nor is it tied. It really is quite stunning in real life.
We lifted the quilt up to turn it a little so I could give you an idea of how the other side looks. Every block has a different Sashiko stitching design.
