After I finish the Easter dresses for the girls, I need to stop all my projects (except the Inklingo COTSC mystery quilt) and get serious about binding some quilts. I have one sleeve in one dress. Soooo, three more sleeves, collar, buttons and buttonholes and hem and then back to quilting. I started the dresses in what I thought was plenty of time. Now the time has gotten away from me.
Back to the binding. As many of you know, binding is not my favorite thing to do. I have procrastinated long enough and must get with it. Here is what I am talking about. All of these need binding and are large quilts with the exception of one. After I get the binding on I will show you close up of the quilting. Sheri Mecom is my long arm quilter.
Sherman’s March designed by Paula Barnes ~ Red Crinoline Quilts
This is Cotton Club~It was a block of the month. Paula created this one too.
Harper’s Ferry – Red Crinoline Quilts
LeMoyne House ~ Red Crinoline Quilts. This quilt is smaller. I went on a quilt cruise with a friend of mine and Paula was a guest teacher.
Hi Paula! (She probably wishes she had not been my first quilt teacher~I was a pain!) I saw Paula at the Dallas Quilt Show last week. I will show you my next Red Crinoline project next week.
This is a quilt that I made from Quilts of Virginia. It is named “Remembering Fannie Noel Spindle Tod”; the original maker of the quilt. I can’t imagine how she did this quilt. I am fortunate enough to have been able to use Inklingo for all my shapes instead of templates. The sunflowers are hand pieced and the pinwheels are machine pieced. I will get a better picture of the overall quilt when the BINDING is on. I think this will be the first one to get binding.
Here are a couple of close ups of the back showing the quilting
OK, back to the Easter dresses. Hopefully I will be able to post a picture on Monday ~ til
then Happy Stitching
