I did have good intentions of quilting the 6 tops I finished this summer but my back had other ideas. Not sure what I was doing on Monday but I twisted my lower back and I was in pain for a few days. Getting up and down from my sewing chair and walking to the ironing board was a chore. So I was only able to complete 2 of the tops. First one from scrap brick blocks with black Kona shashing and border.
I had a piece of orange big enough for the back with a little help from 3 more brick blocks. All straight line quilting to finish it up!
This one with the Posie Blocks (from my attempt at the Moda Trifle Dish Sew A Long) makes a great baby quilt. It measures about a 32" square.
The back is one piece of pretty pink fabric that I also used for the binding.
I free motion quilted with beige thread - scroll-ish all around. I went over to A Few Scraps - Christina has has some great tutorials, videos and ideas on free motion quilting - I picked this one to do and before I knew it, I was done.
Six days later, my back is still reminding me to get up and down slowly - ugh. Each day it seems a bit better. I'm back to work full time at a local university but hopefully will squeeze in some machine time in the early morning and continue to make some progress.
Go out there and create something new. Thanks for stopping by!
