Yeehaw! Another quilt top complete! Sure it would look nicer with some applique but I'm on a roll. All the white space can be filled with custom quilting. And you never know I may eventually go back and add some applique. For now she's folded and in the needs to be quilted pile. The quilt pattern is my own, designed for the specific task of using up the leftover nine patches from another quilt idea. She finishes at 73.50 square, a nice size for the back of the couch.
With such a gorgeous spring day I had to take an outside picture. Oh how I wanted to throw a quilt on the ground and soak in the sun while taking a nap.
The last picture is what happens when you think your faster than your sewing machine. I'm one of those quilters that doesn't like to run over pins. Instead I pull them out at the last second, right before the needle comes down, never slowing down. It seems my cat like reflexes are only in my mind.

Very pretty quilt. It would be a great quilt to wrap up in and take a nap.ReplyDelete
Great finish! I just love the red, white and blue. I had the same thing happen this past week... not only is the pin bent, but the sewing machine needle broke! Oops. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Lea Anne! My name is Victoria and I'm writing you and following your blog from Valencia (Spain).....just next where you live!! jajaja (just joking). Congratulations for finishing that new quilt top, it's always nice when you finish and UFO and put to good use orphan blocks. For the white parts of your new quilt top, may I suggest some embroidery?. Perhaps some kind of chainstitched vines in red, nothing complicated you could stitch in some spare moments in front of the tv.Just a suggestion!!. LoveReplyDelete
I love it ! Red white and blue will always steal my heart. Do you use quilt software to figure out lay outs? Your designs are always lovely. JanitaReplyDelete
