I have 3 quilts top that I have finished piecing and all I need to do now is machine quilt them.
First, let me tell you that I don't have anyone to help me hold my quilts during my photography sessions so my dear trusty swing set serves as the holder. My husband would help if I ask but he is really not the type to model quilts...lol.
The quilt above was made from a jelly roll by Tula Pink. The fabric is Neptune. The quilt top is in 2 pieces. I will be machine quilting it in sections using my Bernina sewing machine and a method taken from the book Divide and Conquer by Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan. Their book is out of print but I was able to purchase a pdf document of the general directions on this method from their website Great American Quilt Factory.
This is a table topper that was made from a charm pack. I used the Disappearing 9 patch pattern. You may be able to tell that it is already layered (top, batting and backing) using the 505 temporary fabric adhesive. I started quilting this one yesterday.
This will be a queen size quilt. The pattern is called Springtime in Oklahoma and I used Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I left it in 2 sections so I can again use the Divide and Conquer Method.
This is a quilt top my daughter cross stitched. She wants me to put a backing on it to cover up the stitching on the back. I haven't decided how I want to do this since it is already quilted. Some how I want to add a thin bat and a backing, then do a little quilting to hold it together, then add a binding.
I have 5 more quilt tops started so there will be more quilty blog posts coming soon.
Until next time,
