I didn't get any "fun" sewing done this weekend. Instead, I spent time doing some chores to get partially-done projects a little further along. I picked up my quilt that I'm calling Swing Your Partner from the longarm quilter on Friday and wow - she outdid herself with a pantograph called Feathered Curls. I don't have even a fraction of Nicole's photography talent, but here is the quilt on our king-sized bed.
While I was sewing this one, I didn't think I would like the pastel colors of Moda's Faded Memories fabrics in my home. I liked the fabrics - don't get me wrong - but it's not my decorating style. I do absolutely LOVE the finished quilt, though and will absolutely find SOMEWHERE to put this one.
I made this using Miss Rosie's Allemande pattern and 3 charm packs from the Faded Memories collection (2 packets of prints and 1 of plaids). I also purchased yardage of a background fabric (Lakehouse Frosted dots in both white and champagne colors) and yardage for the large pinwheels and matching borders. Isn't the quilting stunning?
So my weekend "chores" included making the binding for this quilt and the last quilt I picked up from the quilter but hadn't gotten around to binding yet.
I also attached the borders to my Granny Squares quilt and here's a picture of it, although again, my photography leaves a lot to be desired. I want to have this one quilted with an allover spiral design, but must wait until I have a little extra spending money - like maybe when I get my first quilt store paycheck!
