QUARTER 2 FINISH

This time around I did much better in my goal to finish the things on my list. The original post is here .
I had hoped that by listing more I would finish more. I guess it worked! The latest one to get finished is Supernova. I got the binding on, washed it, and grabbed my daughter for a photo shoot.


 I quilted it with diagonal lines about 1" apart. I used the quilting guide on my walking foot for some of it, but switched to drawing lines after a while because it was too bulky to stuff through my machine.
Drawing lines allowed me to switch directions of the quilt.

excuse the lint



The texture of this is so nice. I don't usually wash my quilts first, but I needed to get rid of the pen lines.


Looking back I realized this is the third finish for this quarter.



Hurray for three finishes this time  : )

Fantastic Carla! I think I need to take my quilts on field trips more often. You take the most amazing photos of your projects (or maybe that's your own property?)

Carla,

At your show-and-tell (last October), someone showed a quilt with cats. The picture has surfaced on Pinterest and one of my friends has fallen in love with it. I have spent many hours online trying to find the pattern but have had no success. Would it be possible for you to ask the lady who made it for the title of the pattern ? I know this is a lot to ask, but I would love to find it and get it for my friend for her birthday....

Jana said...

Love this block and the colors you have picked are gorgeous. Perfect quilt.

Your Supernova is beautiful! You are inspiring me to get mine out and complete it. It's somewhere in a pile...

Love, love, LOVE this, Carla! You chose such great colors! I made Supernova too. It's hanging on our guest room wall. Hope you find the perfect spot to show-off yours.
