FYI, yesterday was National Kissing Day, so if you didn’t get your kiss on I believe today is the day to make it up.
Anyway, with all the family around there hasn’t been much time for quilting.
I managed to fill the calendar with classes though, one of which is a modern improvisational or traditional coin quilt. With that needing to be done as a sample I did manage to get it basted today.
I’ve been in love with these little elephants snippeted in here since I first laid eyes on them. I bought enough for the backing too. I think I’ll just go loop-d-loop for the quilting.
I’ve made plenty of more traditional coin quilts, though not stacked coins. In fact they were some of the first quilts I ever made and a good choice because of the simplicity of their construction.
I wanted the class to have the option of traditional or improvisational designs. I think I’ll remake this one that I called the Colorway Quilt with my current fabrics for the traditional quilt sample.
I’ve made some where I fussy cut the fabrics, I guess you would considered it an I-Spy quilt. I love any scrappy quilt that allows you to showcase your fabric stash.
Now I’m thinking I might need a stacked coin example too. Might be a cute use for those Heather Ross fabrics I’ve been stashing.
Hope you all had a great fourth! I went shopping in my pajamas.
