The storm paused just long enough for me to finish quilting #4 of 10 for July.
This Framed 16 patch is rather busy so the quilting doesn’t show much but I chose one of my favorite pantographs – Happy Times – because it looks good on just about everything and because it had a lot of spots in the pattern to pause if needed since it’s the first time I’ve used the Pantovision since the move. Everything went fine with no problems and now all I have to do is keep quilting and get caught up!
I bought the Jelly Roll from BluPrint and since I loved the state fabric in it, I bought some yardage too! At 84 inches long, this one needed a little extra piece in the back so I pieced the red state colorway with the blue state one. Funny how this piece trimmed from one side of the quilt has 3 of 4 states I’ve lived in all next to each other (Florida, Georgia, and Minnesota – just Virginia is missing).
Looking at the fabric as I’m sitting here makes me think of all the places that my blog visitors live and how neat it is that blogging allows me to have contact with quilters all over the world from the comfort of my home. Thank you for stopping by to see me!
