  • Structure and Spontenaity is basted

    Thankfully, I finished basting the quilt yesterday. I had set up folding tables in the garage. I always put down old shower curtains under them to keep the quilt clean. When I lifted up the section of quilt that had been on the floor it felt damp, so I spread the quilt out and let it stay till this morning. It felt dry so I rolled up and pinned the

  • Stucture and Spontenaity Back is Finished

    I finished the back today! I ironed both the front and back and set the center creases with the iron. I just finished watching the two Sharon Shamber YouTube videos on basting quilts. I have used this technique on several quilts and it works well for me. The only thing I do different from Sharon Shamber is that I use water soluble thread for basting

  • Structure and Spontenaity Back

    The back is underway. I used one large rectangle of each of the colors in the front. These are of varying widths and lengths. I made them like the front rectangles. There are sashing strips of varying width the length of the quilt back. There are sashing strips between the blocks of varying lengths. I have about half of the back put together. I had

    Susie, the package arrived today. It is so sweet. I am over the moon. I love 30's reproductions and have quite a collection of them. Now to do some research for a curved pieced 30's style block. I have never made a curved pieced block, have you? It's good to stretch! Jessica

    Debbie, this is nothing to do with this ongoing post. I just don't know how to start a new one to you. I shipped your quilt to Bonita today. I loved working on it. I had made single blocks using red, white, and blue, but I had never thought of those colors in terms of a whole quilt. It was great to be able to do that. Hope you like the results.

  • Structure and Spontenaity top is finished

    I finished the top yesterday. Yesterday afternoon the cat and I laid the quilt out on the largest bed in the house and removed strings. The cat thought that trying to catch the scissors as I snipped was great entertainment. This morning the cat and I laid the quilt out on the patio floor. I used lawn chairs to anchor the corners and took measurements

  • Structure and Spontenaity underway

    I got all the cutting done last week. Yesterday and today I have been making blocks. I have the 2", 3", 4", and 5" wide rectangles sewn to the shadowing strips. The 6" rectangles are left to do. The next step after that will be to sew the rectangle columns together. Yesterday I was listening to on my mp3 player as I sewed. I

  • Structure and Spontenaity

    I have started a new quilt. Last week I sketched and colored and played till I arrived at a pattern. This will be a graduation quilt for my neighbor, Collin. We first met him as he was swinging on the play set in our back yard. We had just bought our house in Lebanon. This was 2001. Over the years we have enjoyed this fellow, played with him, attended

  • Churn Dash Dolls Round Robin 2015 Border 1

    This is the first round of borders for Susie Bradley's center. I used paper foundation piecing to make this border. The yellow and blue are from Susie. The green is from my stash. So far, so fun!
