A Daisy Finish

This cute daisy wall-hanging was finished last week.  After seeing the pattern in the current Quiltmania magazine, I went on the hunt for a kit which was found on the In The Patch Designs website.  The Do A Daisy wall-hanging is completely hand stitched except fot attaching the front, back & batting together.  It was fun although a bit difficult to make good stitches in the center of the wall-hanging.

The leaves and petals are attached with a running stitch through the middle of the wool.  This gives them a subtle 3-D effect which is one of my favorite parts of the wall-hanging.

The Multi-Print Strata top is also completed.  It is the largest strata at 55″ x 58″ and does have some fullness which I will need to ease in during the machine quilting process.

All my curiosity and what-if questions regarding the Strata quilts have been answered at this time, so on to something else.

Time to load another quilt top on the quilting frame.  The winner – Black, White & Gold pieced in 2016.

This quilt rquires custom quilting, so more practice with rulers is coming my way.  I will probably start work on it sometime in October.  In the meantime a new scrappy project and an old UFO are jumping up & down and waving their hands.  I guess it is time to give them some personal attention.  More on that in a later post.

Have a good quilty week.

A Couple of Finishes

I am a bit behind in my posting, however today I have a couple of finishes to share.

African Courthouse Steps is now a completed quilt.  This quilt top was pieced sometime before 2008 and is one of my oldest projects.  It measures 54″ x 71″ and – if I remember correctly – was an Eleanor Burns pattern.  Yeah!  There are only two more pre-2008 quilt tops to finish before the end of the year.

The second quilt finish is the Purple Strata (40″ x 42″).  I don’t care for this one as much as the Green Stata.  Maybe it has to do with the concentration of solid purple in the center.  But that is okay since this one is intended as a charity quilt; I am sure that someone out there will love it.

My new piecing project is the third strata using multi-colored strips.

The 1 1/2″ strips were divided into light, medium & dark piles and starting with the lights in the center.  I think that this one may be my favorite of all.

Have some quilty fun this weekend.
