Productive week? I think so............

I can't believe I actually got another quilt done this week. Mind you, it's smaller - but still! Yay for a productive week!!


So, quilt stats: This is Em's Mom's Quilt - she is an amazing needle turn applique lady! No joke - amazing! Can't even see the thread and circles? - circles!! Wow - I was so happy to work on this quilt. The pattern is from Pieceocake's "My Whimsical Quilt Garden" book. I used two layers of Hobbs 100% cotton and So Fine thread.


The reason I thought using two layers of batting would be a great idea for this quilt is because I really wanted to make the applique "pop!" It did pop, that's for sure, but it was a lot harder to control my machine around the applique - I have to log that down for future reference.



All the brown background fabrics were quilted in different styles. Circle loops here.


Pebbles here.






This one was fun because of the background fabric. I'll talk more about that a few pictures down.


Swirls - can I say again how amazing the applique is on this quilt? Amazing!


I had fun with this quilt because it had so many different fabrics that I could just quilt whatever popped in my head. I didn't use any marking for this quilt - it's all free motion quilting. The borders around each block are stitched in the ditch. I had a hard time deciding if this was enough quilting for the borders in the blocks, but I am happy with the results.


This fabric is amazing! Seriously - talk about quilting texture goodness. I can't believe how fun this was to quilt. It seriously makes the quilt 3D - I love it!


Last, but not least - my favorite part of the quilt. It's just a fun whimsical quilt design that I think just goes with the quilt. I hope she likes it!!!!

One more thing - we still have precuts available for our Sample Spree going on right now. Fabric lines that aren't even available yet!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
