It’s Thursday! I have yet to sew a single stitch on my Project QUILTING quilt but I did paint the fabric, sketched my applique design and started to fuse some fabrics…it’s a start. Let’s hope I can get it finished in the next few days!
But the real reason I’m posting today is to show you a quilt I recently FINISHED – my 1930s Block of the Month Sampler!
I believe I started making these 1930’s reproduction print Block of the Month from Fabric N Quilts. I loved doing them but it was one of those times where I just had way too many things going on…including having a baby! Anyway – this year I was determined to finish the quilts (thanks to ‘A Lovely Year of Finishes’ for the kick in the butt). In January I got all the sashings added to the blocks, pieced the tops, and then I sent it off to Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting to quilt it. I had won some money towards long arm free motion quilting last year for participating in her ‘Zig Zag Challenge’.
Marcia did a great job quilting a free motion meander with little flowers randomly throughout. It compliments the quilt without taking away from the blocks. Perfect! The next step was adding the binding on! I did random lengths of the three different sashing strips for the binding. I thought it added to the wonky twist I added to this traditional quilt.
And the final step will be giving it to my friend! I’m sure once she see’s this post she’ll be calling me for a coffee date soon (hint, hint, Julie)! I can’t wait to see her reaction when she see it in real life!
It's beautiful! I love how you set the blocks & am a huge fan of scrappy bindings! Lucky Julie!
It is beautiful! A Lovely Year of Finishes has been a huge kick in the butt for me too 🙂
I just got the kids off go school
And I am about to start cutting fabric for my quilt. Need energy and not to much interruption!
sending you energy!
I love your repro quilt! I may not make the challenge this week. I got my inspiration, fabrics ready, working on a plan, but Im not going to work on it tonight like I thought. Sick-ugh! Dang those little kid germs!
ughhh – i understand kid germs all too well… feel better soon!
I DO LOVE IT!!! Thanks Kim!!!
So happy to hear 🙂 Enjoy!
