I’ll bet you thought I wasn’t sewing for those 2 weeks of “house tour” posts, huh? Wrong! Remember the split nine patch – here it is quilted. I can only quilt straight lines but it’s what I would choose if someone else was doing it, too. I do not like all the curvy quilting designs – that’s just ME however!!
Then I decided to do something with all my bright strips so I just started sewing in rows, straightening the sides, adding more, etc. until I ended up with this quilt and I love it! I really have wanted to sew like this for years but I had a busy job and this wasn’t useful in our business of selling fabric – if you know what I mean. I love using up pieces from previous projects and still have more to work with. Here’s another picture and a close-up.
Right now I’m working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt with mens’ shirts in blue and orange and I love that, too.
Connie is back in Garner and she has been busy sewing in Florida so tomorrow I’ll go to her house and take some pictures for a “Connie report”.
