This is from APQ October 2019. Possibly the second time I’ve used this pattern. This time I changed the cutting for less waste and it went really well. The quilt decided it just wanted to be outlined around the colors. It did involve quite a few thread breaks; but think it really highlights the fabrics. It also was my first time creating the spiral on the bias binding. Don’t stretch it, don’t stretch it! :)
I decided to make a second zippered bag out of Nantucket Summer fabric, by Camille Roskelley since the first one was a bit small. This larger bag holds my large scissors, rulers, marking pens, etc. I still used the 2.5” mini charms, but made the bag with six across, and nine down. I decided to cut out the salvage, and heat and bond it to the center of the bag. Very easy afternoon project!
1-27-23…I picked up my Sailboat quilt from my local quilt shop today. I’m very happy with the quilting. (1-16-23, I finished piecing my Sailboat quilt, by Camille Roskelley. Took it to my longarmer on Wednesday. I chose a “Modern Twist Loop” for the quilting. The backing is the same as the sailboat background, done in Dwell navy pin dot. Can’t wait to see how it turns out! (For Christmas, my sister gave me Nantucket Summer fat quarters, and yardage for the posts and sashing to make this quilt. I have been wanting to make this for some time now, so I’m thrilled to have the fabric to do so.)
