Ok, I had to drag myself down to the basement to work on the long arm. I may regret it since it was so nice out today and it's not supposed to be nice out tomorrow, but I got one of my customer quilts on and off the long arm so that is a good thing.
This is a jelly roll quilt. Sorry, I don't know the name of the jelly roll, but it is really pretty with it's soft yellows and light browns.
I wanted to use a new-to-me panto called Gatsby.
I really like how it looked on the quilt.
It has everything....straight lines (which I made sure went in the opposite direction of the jelly roll strips) and it had curves (concave and convex). For as open as this panto appears, it gave great coverage; and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
I used a dark taupe thread (So Fine) since the top was light and the backing was very dark. Overall, I think it blended in quite well.
My customer always has such great backings for her quilts, too. Pieced strings in the center and lovely dots on the outside.
Well, I hope Nancy loves her quilt.
Now on to the next customer quilt, but maybe a Hearts and Hand block tonight before I start that one. heehee.....we will see.
