I'm glad to be able to post a finish this week!
The summer is just flying by and I hope you're enjoying it.
I know we are!
This one has been done for a few weeks and it's now hanging in the hallway, not in the backyard.
That's a good thing, because we've gotten so much rain.
Not that rain is a bad thing, you just don't want your quilt hanging outside when its raining. Inside is definitely better.
Here are the stats on this one-
It's Jersey Girl designed by the amazing Carrie Nelson.
I made it for a Schnibbles parade back in January, I think, and I used fabrics from both the Reunion and the Road 15 fabric lines by Sweetwater.
You can read a few of my posts about piecing it, and about quilting it too, if you click here, here, and here.
For the quilting, I did some flowerlike swirls with my Bernina 820 on my quilt frame.
I'm pleased with how it turned out, even though I haven't been practicing as much as I probably should be, to have nice quilting stitches.
I have good intensions, but as I'm sure you know, there just aren't enough hours in the day!
Oh, I love the backing on this one too!
I forgot to get a picture of it this time, but you can get a look at it in the picture below that I swiped from my own previous post about quilting it.
See it on the back roller?
It's from the fabric collection Just My Type by Patti Young.
Next time I take some pictures, I'll try to take some of the back for you.
Here is one last picture of it before I'm off to enjoy the pool weather while we can!
The aisles at Target are full of school supplies already and a few super-bright lime green folders even found their way into my cart yesterday.
I might not be doing much sewing, blogging or commenting recently, but I've been keeping up with your posts and I've been enjoying relaxing with my family this summer.
It won't be long before school will be back in session here, and then I plan to sew up a storm!
