Pattern: Awesome by Sunflower Seeds – for Moda Bake Shop
Size: 46.5″ x 55.5″
Methods of Construction: Machine Piecing, Machine Quilting.
Fabrics used: Buttercup by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics
Completed January 2012
This top was made in April 2011. I am known in the guild for the use of Moda pre-cuts, especially Jelly Roll Quilts. If you don’t know what a Jelly Roll is – it is 40 strips of fabric, 2.5” by the width of fabric. I had to include at least one Jelly Roll quilt in this collection since it is what I am known for.
This quilt top was made when I was sewing with my friend Susan one day. I kept having to rip the seams because I kept sewing them wrong. Even after I thought the top was complete and posted about it, I noticed there was still a messed up seam. The pattern was very simple, it was just a matter of distractions while sewing – namely fun and friendship. Strait line stitching was the best for the quilting to accentuate the lines of the quilt.
The last new top to show you today… The pattern is called “Awesome” from Moda Bake Shop. I should call the top “Frogger” since I had to do a lot of “Frog Stitching” with this pattern – mostly because I didn’t read the pattern. Looking at the photo below now, I have to fix the top row because it is on backwards.. More ripping! Ugh!
Since most of what I have been working on, I can’t talk about yet (super-secret projects) – my blog has been quiet. There are a few things that I have done that I can show, but without someone to hold the quilts that is taller than 4’5” , it is hard to post pictures of those tops that I finished recently. I am hoping to get some photos tomorrow night at guild.
Today I finally broke into the bolt of batting I bought in February. I cut batting for several quilts that have been waiting.
