I finished my Christmas quilt. It’s only 36”x44”. All the lap quilt I need when I’m sharing a couch with 3 dogs! The fabric is Vintage Holiday by April Cornell for Moda. I had 2 charm packs and yardage of the sashing fabric that I also used for backing and binding. Here is a close up of the quilting – a clamshell design by machine using Aurifil #2325 50/2 weight thread.
It’s my favorite thread to use for machine piecing and quilting. It seems to go with so many of the fabrics I use. I call it antique gold but I don’t think that is what Aurifil calls it. I enjoyed quilting this one – the quilt was small enough and the design was pretty brainless especially since I’d marked the quilt. I used a Sewline pencil in white and it vanished with washing.
My daughter introduced me to Pinterest last summer. I hadn’t been back to the site since and she made a comment last week about it being taken over by a certain demographic group of which I’m a member. Well! ; c ) I was led there this afternoon when I was blog hopping and found this quilters eye candy here. I went back to the homepage and I have to admit she’s right. It doesn’t have the same feel as it did when she first showed it to me. Now that I think about it, when she said “old ladies” she may have been referring to women in their 30’s! Geez!
If you’d like a chance to win some fabrics, leave a comment on my previous post by Monday morning.
December is almost here. Where does the time go?
