The Quatrefoil Quilt: Easy Quilting Tutorial with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co
Feb 09: The only thing I have to go on from a potential recipient is "yellow". Stopped by the quilt shop on the way home from talking to Mish at Geeks at Work & reserved these fabrics.Over the weekend, I posted lots of renditions.
Feb 12: Since no requested feedback, I made an executive decision to make this quilt. I like that there are two contrasting Quatrefoil designs--the blue & the yellow. Bought the fabric.
Feb 14: Busy working on another project that is on hold until Friday so I am cutting strips. All cut except the yellow.
Feb 15: Everything except backing is cut & ready to sew.
Feb 16: Sewed the strip sets & cut into pieces for making the 4-patches.
Feb 17: Started on the 4-patches.
Feb 18: Finished the 4-patches. Started on the blue leaves of the quatrefoil attaching the yellow squares to the corners on one side.
Feb 19: Finished making the quatrefoil leaves. Just a matter joining the top 3, middle 3 & bottom 3 blocks into the larger 12" quatrefoil blocks. The middle ones with the large colorful squares are done.
Feb 20: Working on the blocks.
Feb 21: Top & bottom rows are done. Connecting top & middle rows.
Feb 22: The blocks are done. Next connecting them into rows.
Feb 27: Been working but slowly. Finished putting the rows together. Whew!
Feb 28: The quilt center is done. Pressing and borders tomorrow.
Mar 01: Working on borders. Finished 2 of 3.
Mar 04: Third border is on which will mean this baby is pieced.
May 03: Somewhere along the line I made the binding. Piercing the backing.
Aug 30: Took my quilt to Sew Original to show Patti who helped me select the fabrics way back when. I had purple fabric intended for this quilt but it never quite felt right. I decided to replace it with Grunge Sky Blue, a perfect match to the blue used throughout the top. And it will show the quilting. Since Mish is into robotics, I choose Steam Punk Gears for his panto and will quilt it as loose as I can. Thinking Light Yellow thread. May try for blue in the bobbins.
Sep 13: Mish likes the gears (over the Spokes I also have).
Feb 05: Quilt is here.
Feb 12: Returned backing to Kit at her request. She wants to replace it.
Mar 29: New backing & binding is here.
Apr 05: Kit is still not satisfied with her backing choice so on hold again.
Apr 09: New backing is here. Settled on pattern, density & thread. Ready to prep.
Apr 10: Prepped & loaded ready to quilt.
Apr 11: Quilting.
Apr 12: Quilted.
Apr 13: Binding is attached. Finished with my part. Will ship tomorrow ... too late today.
