I have two quilts to show today that I finished a bit ago that I just got pictures taken.
First up is Coconut Shaved Ice. This quilt is for my son. The last quilt I made him was one with dinosaur fabrics. Sorry for the way the quilt is… I am short and the wind was blowing. I just quilted it with King Tut on the top and Bottom Line on the bottom. I really like that combination for quilting because soo much of the bottom Line can go on the bobbin that I have fewer bobbin changes! This is slightly wider and longer than a twin-size quilt.
Next, is Geometric. This is a king-sized quilt. This one is for my bed (after the quilt show happens in May). I have a queen-sized bed, but my husband and I fight over the covers so I wanted to have it big enough to share. The pattern is from Judy Laquidera. It was really fun to make. I used my leftovers from the front for the back.
Again, I just stippled and used King Tut on the front and Bottom Line in the bobbin. I did sew this on my 6500. I took it a quadrant at a time and quilted from the center out (like Leah Day suggests) in rows. It only took a day to quilt. I was fortunate to be able to set up some tables around my machine to help with the weight of the quilt. I sandwiched it using my board method that I have a tutorial for. I now have 6’ boards, 8’ boards, and 9’ boards for sandwiching quilts.
I will leave you with a picture of my cat curled up in “his boy’s” quilt. This is the dinosaur quilt that I was mentioning above. This cat has an obsession with “his boy” (my son) No matter where he is in the house, the cat will come if my son calls him. There are other things he does, but it is more like what a dog does to his favorite master than how a cat normally acts. Cleo (the cat – and yes he is a boy – long story but the short version is we thought he was a girl for three years so we just kept the name) loves quilts. He loves to curl up in them under the covers. There is never any shortage of quilts that he can curl up in.
