I have to say that taking that stippling class last month has definitely boosted my confidence. I don’t usually have an issue with that – I always think I can do anything until I can’t. Happily I can report that the IWYAM quilt is all quilted in an allover stipple or meander. Here’s a picture I shared on IG – I am trying to imitate lights or ornaments on the cute little trees. I’ll be sharing a full post soon – it is due before the end of the month!
This is our second quilt using the pattern called 16-Patch Framed 4-Patch quilt. A generous finished size, the added borders will make it approximately 58″ x 75″. We added three borders to the basic quilt, one of which was scrappy. It consisted of the remaining 17 inches or so of the Rainy Day strips. Next we will need to find a backing, and then it will be quilted using a spiral pattern.
The Jigsaw quilt is all together!! Woohoo. Now we just need to find a backing or maybe use one from our stash. It sure seems like we should already have something on hand – just sayin’.
Sue has worked on the layout for the Quiet book we are going to make for Dominic. We’ll be sharing more about this sweet idea from Carol at Just Let Me Quilt as time progresses.
For our Elm Street Quilts’ September OMG we are going to quilt and bind I Wish You A Merry! Quilting has been completed; binding still has to happen! We will be making this goal.
To-Do September 24th through 30th:
