Last fall, I participated in a QAL hosted by Lori of Humble Quilts where we made a mini quilt using Madder fabrics. I got the quilt top finished, but that’s all the farther I got. Until now. Over the last weekend, I finished off the little quilt, using my new machine to quilt it.
I kept the quilting simple, just diagonal lines through the quilt. I used a thin batting. When it came to marking the quilt for the quilting, I tried my hera marker, but I couldn’t see the lines well enough, so I opted for a light (or not so light, in places) pencil line. It worked much better for this one.
All the fabrics used are shirtings and madder prints from our local quilt shop, Reproduction Fabrics.
I’m currently working on a quilt top using some leftover batik jelly roll strips in blues and greens. I hope to get a bit more progress on that today. This weekend will mostly be spent on the road, as I travel to celebrate birthdays with two of our aunts.
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
