I left my seam ripper idle and forged ahead with the quilting on Unknown Direction.
Sewing down binding was my Superbowl activity.
(And by the way, a BIG shout-out of “thanks” to those of you that shared where the path takes you when you make a boo-boo. I love how we all have our creative process.)
Funny how a run through the washer and dryer eliminates all my
And look, we actually had a few random sunny days last week. Yes, those are shadows!
Sunshine in these parts at this time of year is better than rose colored glasses.
I used the left over bits from the front to create a panel that would bring my backing to size.
That’s pretty much it for the Alexander Henry Entertaining Elephants fabric. It has made its way into two quilt backs now and the rest likely will become parts of future blocks.
I’ve added a twin size for Roan (with the intended quilting design) in this same colorway to my list of quilts to make. I really liked the light gray thread for the quilting. It blended really well.
Unknown Direction was a start to finish quilt, meaning I never tucked it away or put it aside. Generally when I finish a full project I move onto something that has been waiting on the sidelines.
Opposing Triangles needed binding. Tomorrow I’ve got a date with this quilt and the 5th season of Big Love.
What a STUNNING quilt…I love the way it looks…! ! !
Sorry, but I thought that each masterpiece requires it’s own comment box! What a wonderful quilting job on the Triangle Master! You really made a wonderfully GORGEOUS quilt!
It is “good” as my 5 year old said when he saw the picture. Nice job.
Love this quilt ~ I really like the use of solids (which I have yet to do). It’s really lovely!
I love everything about this quilt– the colors, the design the quilting lines!!! Beautiful job!!

Another amazing quilt, Katie! I love the photo with the bits of shadow on it too.
Very beautiful. I too love how a good washing/drying will cover a multitude of imperfections!
sometimes you just have to remember that you’re always going to be your own harshest critic. The quilt looks amazing to me! The green really pops and there’s so much movement.
And also, I didn’t think Big Love could get an crazier than season 4, but you’re in for a treat with season 5! Whew!
It looks fab, and without your confession, I’d have thought the quilting was deliberate!
Katie, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: You’ve got a way with triangles! I love the light and dark colors you chose. How do you decide on placement? Is it random or do you have a rule of thumb?
just perfect. love it.
so beautiful! it is so so so beautiful! i LOVE it!
Nice job, Katie!
This is beautiful!
