Getting things quilted.......
There's a pile of quilts that need quilting, so I have gotten myself downstairs where it is much cooler than it is outside to work on a few of them.
The first two were customer quilts that are now on their way back home to California.
The customer requested meandering. Even though that is a simple stitch, it still brings a scrappy quilt to life.
This one was sashed in teal
This identical one in design was sashed in a brown oak leaf and acorn fabric.
This next quilt was the result of lotto blocks won at a retreat several years ago. I think it was this century! We were each given the blue floral and told to add yellow/gold and white fabrics to complete the blocks.
Anyways, I had high hopes to get the outside border which was going to be white , appliqued with stems, flowers and leaves. As you can see, that didn't happen.
I figured done is better than fermenting in the closet. Thankfully I still had plenty of the blue floral to make a good sized border. I just bought the yellow to add the smaller border and to back the quilt.
I have quilted this one using the Alouette (new to me) pantograph.
I used Gold Glide on top and Cream Fil-tec bobbins.
Since the backing was a solid color and the quilting was dense enough and pretty enough, I think this one could be reversible and used as a "whole cloth".
I will be binding it in the yellow.
I am pretty pleased with this one and so happy that it is finally nearing the finishing stage.
Now to get back to the slowly dwindling "to be quilted" pile.
