Now back to Pinky and
|straight line ruler work and some big e's and l's|
I did some straight line ruler work in the HST's and centre of the block. In the pink strips I did e's and l's. I have discovered that pink is almost as hard to get good photos of as red. I played with all kinds of settings and editing.
|curved line ruler work|
This block was quick to do. A little curved line ruler work in the centre and loop de loops in the background.
|wavy line ruler work in the plus piece|
|I like how this block turned out|
More ruler work in centre square and also the white around it. I seem to be on a feather craze lately.
|the connector block|
|back of the irish chain block|
I took a least a dozen photos of the back but the stitching doesn't show up to well on the backing fabric I used. The backing is by Benartex 108'' wide backing called Tonal Vineyard. This is the first time I have used a wide backing, I will probably use one again it all just depends on what the quilt wants pieced or wide.
|quilted and binding done.|
I like how the connector irish chain blocks frame each block.
|hearts and more feathers|
I quilted in hearts on both corners on the top and bottom of the quilt. In the heart I did crosshatch ruler work. And lots of feather plumes in the borders.
|applique using the 'Crafted Applique method|
|too big to get a full shot of the top|
|hanging in the tree|
Just had to have at least one tree shot. I know that 'Pinky' will be giving my granddaughter lots of quilty hugs and love every night she snuggles under her.
This quilt after washing finished up at 68'' by 89 1/2''. A good size for her bed.
Now I need to concentrate on what I am going to be adding to Julie of Pink Doxies centre block for the 2016 Mini Round Robin.
|Julie's center block|
I have a few ideas just need to settle on one.
That's what I've been busy doing the last couple weeks. What have you been up to?
