First I want to wish you all a blessed Valentines… from my home to you!
My honey found these tulips when we were shopping on Wednesday… we spotted 1 pot of pink ones ready to bloom and bought them!!!
When I saw the mid day sun shining on them through the skylight above I had to share this glimpse into the beauty I get to enjoy every day 🙂
Do you have any plans to do something special for Valentines? We don’t go out … but I plan to spend it working on Kaydence’s Quilt… yet to be named 🙂
This flimsy features some Benartex layer cake squares I cut to charm size. The fabric line is “Owlivia” 🙂
Do you ever run across God moments when you quilt?
Well I sure did … SEVERAL times… while making this flimsy and with the backing as well!
I had JUST enough Raspberry fabric for the center border and the binding on this project.
I had just enough left the width of the fabric for the wider outer border I decided on… this sliver is all that was left WOF.
I also decided to miter said outer border to a nicer finish… had just enough to do said borders 🙂
The backing is pieced because this flimsy measures 42″ square…. so as I was designing the backing it seemed someone else was in control of the design.. lol! It turned out perfect!!!
Then while cleaning a bit of the mess I had made in the making of this… I found this perfect square to add some embroidery to for a label!
Any ideas on how to decorate this cute fabric?? I am sewing it to a muslin square and turning it and appliqueing when the quilt is finished 🙂
And here they are in my sewing room.. the backing on my design wall and the flimsy laid over my sewing chair…
So I can look at this photo and realize so many moments so far that something amazing has happened… I feel this quilt is blessed to be loved once gifted.
So where am I in process with this quilt?
I will mark it next.. still trying to decide how to do the charms… for their quilt design. But I have border designs decided and checked and will mark them first.. hoping then to get inspiration …
OR IDEAS FROM YOU ALL… on how to address the charms.
This will be all hand quilted in white, olive and raspberry Aurifil 28/2 thread.
I will use Pellon cotton batting and have the rasberry batik fabric already cut for the binding 🙂
So now I would LOVE to hear from you….
What do you think?
Do you have ideas to share for a quilting design in the charm squares??? Not into just an x in them.
Thanks in advance to those that leave me feedback…
