When I think Cathedral Window, I think of small blocks of folded fabric, so this was a new twist for me. There are a couple of parts where he had to topstitch down curves, and it is impeccable. (Wish mine was that good)
|Isn't this a fun and bright quilt? Lots of bright fabrics from the designer Kaffee Fasset for the colors. I don't know if the black and white prints are from his as well.|
|The quilting design is called "Sun Scallops"/ Hard to see on the busy print, but it shows better on the backing. Too bad my photography skills are so limited. Quilted with hot pink thread, so it really shows on the back.|
Turns out the Anne lives in my neighborhood. She was out walking and saw the sign on the front porch. She contacted me about quilting these darling paper pieced coffee cups.
Each part of the cup was SID with clear thread, then "steam" swirls were added in the background. Finally, and most difficult to see are the "coffee beans" in the outer border. Fun to quilt!
Lucas graduated from high school this year, but didn't get to have the traditional celebrations. I hope that this quilt that his mom and dad surprised him with will help to ease that. He played a lot of baseball, so many jerseys and t-shirts from those years. The jerseys were a bit of a challenge, I couldn't get my machine to quilt over the front placket. So, those were left open, and he can still unbutton them.
I've never made this quilt pattern, but now I see why it's so popular. Take a collection of fat quarters and voila! A fun twin sized quilt. Or in this case, 2 of them. Slightly different, but in the same color scheme.
This is the backing of one quilt. Nothing like using up your scraps to create a backing.
|But Shauna persevered! She finished the entire quilt, and then stitched down the raw edges with clear thread to hold them in place.|
|I did SID around the pieces, to give them definition and dtail.|
|Gotta love the little pig butt in the middle|
