Indonesian Batik Florals with 108" Wide Back Tonal Vineyards
Will definitely order this when available
I am envisioning a RWB Joan style too in the future
Jul 05: Placed a quick order to make some quilt coverlets in my no-piece style unless I come up with something more interesting. The purple backing is 108".
Jul 10: Fabric is here. The batiks are a larger design than I expected. Very glad the purple backing matches all three.
Jul 13: Finished plans for Debbie & a most special friend using the Indonesian Batik Dogwood Ivory when it becomes available. Fabric.com is saying July 21.
Jul 16: Had to call Jonathan of Unlimited Heating & Air. Hard to beat next day service. Two of these coverlet quilts now have a home.
PS: Anyone who has sent more than 70 quilts always gets top priority even over mine.
If your quilt is time sensitive, be sure to let me know.
Otherwise follow the blog to see what mischief I am up to.
Jul 02: Love these panels I picked up over the weekend at Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shop. Got the batik for border &/or backing. Thinking checkerboard interleaving the tan and black blocks. Need to play...
Jul 03: Just ordered a total of 3 tan & 3 black panels. Want a quilt or wall hanging or pillows? Let me know. Will post ideas soon.
Jul 11: Play in EQ7 to get rendition.
Terry & Linda Roush tell me this hand pieced quilt was made by a family friend in southern Ohio who was 90 years old
when she completed it. She died about a year ago but was still making quilts for friends until she passed. Wow!
May 20: Been hoping to make this quilt for awhile. Made the mistake of stopping in at the local quilt shop just to say hello. Got me thinking deeper about fabrics. Contrast to make the flag (not the borders) "wave" is the key.
Jun 13: Settled on some fabrics. Wanted more contrast but this will work. Ordered Andover Stars Navy Fabric. I will piece or paper piece the stars if I can perfect it.
Jun 17: The navy fabric is here so I am all to piece when I get/make the time. Working on my star. Found a paper pieced star pattern I like.
When I visited Frank last week at the assisted living facility as I do every Sunday, I noticed he did not sit back in his recliner which can't recline because there isn't room in his small room. I wondered if a pillow wouldn't work nicely for him. Today we tested the idea with one of his bed pillows wrapped in the small quilt I made for him last November. Perfect. His favorite color is red. As we chatted, the pattern he liked was a hound/hunting dog. He has owned many in his lifetime. Picked up a pillow and some red fabric on the way home. While washing the fabric, I created my design. The quilting went fast. Used wool batting from among my remnants to accentuate the quilting. I like it. Can't wait for Tuesday to give it to him.
This is a joint project by Cynthia (mom) and Dionne (daughter). I have enjoyed this on my work table for the past week.
Note: The bows are beautifully hand pieced.
