Yesterday's Project

Hello Everyone,

In the spirit of getting my quilts quilted, I loaded another on to my long arm yesterday.  This time is was my Which Way Is North? quilt.  You can find the pattern here.

If you remember this quilt was put together as part of an online bee, the Two's Company Bee.



Anyway, I am finally getting around to quilting this top and I love it.  Very scrappy geese.  Many different fabrics were contributed to make this quilt outstanding.  My thanks to all who were part of making this quilt.


Close up of the quilting.  I used a King Tut thread for the quilting.  I am quilting a leaf edge to edge design.


The backing is a Kaffe Fassett fabric, as well as many of the geese, and perfect for this quilt.



Another close up showing some of the great fabrics that were used for the geese.


The quilt is now quilted and I did cut our the binding and the sleeve!! Yay!  I am usually not that quick, but am truly happy with my progress.

Oh wait, did I say binding.... ooooo that is 2 quilts to bind in 2 days!  Better get going! 


Until Next Time...

It turned out gorgeous Jackie! You inspire me to get to work on my Two's Company bee blocks.

With all of the snow you're having I'd call my quilt Heading South! :o) It's beautiful no matter which direction it leads. It takes me 4 days to bind a big quilt -- one side a night.

I'm like Mary . . . it's inspiring me to get back to work on mine, too! Yours turned out beautiful. Glad to have had a part in it!
