This first quilt, I'm not even sure I ever posted pix of the top. It's was a little experiment involving a handful of Cotton and Steel fat quarters. I was trying to come up with a method of putting to fat quarters face to face, sewing them and cutting them to create a different grid pattern. Thus the odd shaped rectangles in the middle. I'm not sure it was worth the effort but it's different?!
It's fun to quilt these little quilts. I just kind of doodle around each section with a different doodle. No stress, just play!
I posted pix of this second quilt in April when I finished the top but now it's really finished!
Two months turn around from top to finished is pretty good for me!
Once again I kept the quilting really simple; wavey parallel lines through all the patches from top to bottom except for the 'focal point'.
I backed this quilt with an indigo ikat fab I've probably had for 20 years. It makes a nice calm counter point for the bright front.
These quilts will be going to the Wheel Chair Bound Vets program (lap quilts 36" x 48"). I generally like to give them quilts in batches of 3 so I have one more to finish before they hit the road. As I said in my last post I am very behind in my goals on my charitable donations so I'm really focusing on getting that 3rd one done this week!
We shall see...
Have a great week!
cheers, Claire W.
