Feels like fall is officially here. Although the sun was out, it was a bit chilly. It was the perfect day to sew. I finished this quilt top. It’s made up of approximately 1” strips of my scrap quilting fabrics. It will fit over a queen size bed, but won’t hang over the sides very much, maybe about 6″ inches. This seems to be the size I’m most comfortable making. Compared to my last quilt top, it came together pretty quick. I need to pick out a back fabric, and commit to a quilting design. I think it will be vertical, irregular rows following the stripes. I also see maybe a vertical loop-to-loop pattern. I’m interested in pursuing some of the floral traditional quilt stitching patterns. I haven’t tried any of those yet. As much as I want to try something traditional, I don’t think that would work for this quilt. I’m already thinking about my next quilt, and how I can incorporate a tradition floral quilt stitch into a more modern quilt top.

A few years back my sister-in-law got me started on my first quilt. Ever since then I have been hooked in a big way. Quilting was always an idea that I was attracted to, but hadn't taken the time to dive into. The process takes me to that meditative place that art can bring into your life. I've always been a maker. Making is an important part of life. View more posts
