Improv quilt is done

Stick a fork in me I am done!

Thursday, March 17, 2011


"Shine" is quilted, bound and DONE!  This was my first quilt for the Lib Amish Get Together.

I can't belive it's taken me a year to get this done. I just couldn't decide how I wanted to quilt this. I finally took my inspiration from antique Amish quilts (should be a no-brainer, right?) and machine-quilted triple diagonal lines. Free-hand, of course. I was liberated enough to use my sewing machine, or it would be a realllllly loooong time before this got finished . . . hee hee!

I didn't measure anything, and I didn't stress about it. It only took me a few hours to get this done, once I got going.

I really like this quilt.  I think it finally came together just right.

Making progress

I thought I would post a few pictures of the front and back as I am deep in the throws of free motion quilting the improv quilt. I need to have it quilted and bound by March 22 and I think I am going to make it. I have about 75% of the center quilted, then it will be onto the borders.
