Quilt Back

>> Monday, May 31, 2010

A little snap shot at the quilt backing. I know what you might be thinking it is a large contrast from the front and does but doesn't go with the front. But since she's going for a black and white theme in her dorm room. I felt the need to accommodate. So the quilt will be reversible for those days she's needs to  coordinate and those days where she needs a little color in her life. I felt I've unified it by keeping with a modern theme in the fabrics. I must say though the back is my favorite. I had bought the backing fabric for curtains in my sewing room and after two years of hanging onto it I let it go. My heart is broken but I know it is going to good home and just maybe she'll love the fabric as much as I do. And yes, I am crying....


Ready Set Assemble

Here's a snap of what is to come.

Time to assemble and quilt .....pending a few changes.


Quilt Pattern

>> Monday, May 24, 2010

Okay here's a drawing of the quilt pattern I am using for my graduate quilt. You'll have to ignore the color schemes and just use a little imagination. Excel only has so many colors and I just don't have the time to pull in new colors. Yeah, I don't own any fancy quilt making software here. Excel works just fine for me for now. Also allows me to do the occasional quilt mapping on my lunch break.

What is needed if 5 coordinating fat quarter sets with four prints in each set. You cut them up into 5" x 5" squares, 5" x 10" and 5" x 15" rectangles. Use a 1/4" seams and I've drawn out the final dimensions in the photo. You'll use the left over fabric on the back side.


Inspiration Strikes. Thanks to a Graduate.

Inspiration has finally struck at 1:30 am in the morning.  I am excited. I had these fabrics for over year and a half and have been waiting for the perfect moment and idea for using them. A new quit is on the way and just in time for my cousin's graduation. Hopefully, she'll find it a nice fresh modern quilt for her dorm. Details to come. I have a two week deadline so off I go.
 Here's preview of one of fabrics in the collections I am using. Check  all of Laurie Wisburn's  collection  out at Scarlet Fig.


The Wedding Came...

>> Tuesday, May 11, 2010

I had a fabulous time at my sister and Mike's wedding. Love my new family-in-laws. And I couldn't wait to share photos of the event and my flower girl dress actually being worn. Maybe now I can get back to some more serious crafting.

And at the end of the night we all took a dive. Had blast April & Mike and thanks Alyssa for such great photos.
