Well, my computer has been in the shop for the week which means I was actually a productive sewist. Mind you I also practically lost my mind since I couldn’t even look up a phone number.
Now my camera has decided that “close-up” mode is all that is needed so this is as good as it gets for a full shot (ignore dreary Seattle backyard mid-December too), but Eeeekkkk… L-O-V-E this simple charm quilt! It’s twin size.
Went with the orange peel free motion again and will likely revisit it when I get to another charm quilt with the grays I’ve been collecting.
The back is mostly Alexander Henry Whispering Wings, a print I want to keep on my shelf forever. It was too perfect as backing for this quilt though. I have a hard time with that sometimes.
I only had so much of it, so I added a few extra squares to the back. It showcases the quilting a bit I think.
I went with the green binding. I wanted to try to pick up on the small bits of green in the butterfly wings.
I think I’ve mentioned my need to switch between traditional and improvisational work, so when it’s a little bit brighter in these parts I have a “new” quilt top to share that steps away from this traditional squares stuff I’ve had so much fun producing lately.
I’ll certainly need some suggestion in quilting it, but I’m going to let it hang a bit for my own imagination first.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
