The Origins Pinwheel Quilt Top is Finished!

Moments ago I finished putting on the border for the Origins Pinwheel Quilt top. My original plan for the border was something much simpler – just rectangular blocks of the linen fabrics but after doing some soul searching (and Google searching) I thought this might work for the quilt instead! I broke out my favorite flying geese ruler (EZ Stars and Geese by Kimberly Einmo) and went to work. This did take several hours to do but I think it needed a good border.  The finished top measures 50.5″ x 56″ now. This quilt top is difficult to photograph indoors due to all the dark fabrics but I tried my best with my popup flash. Anyway...

WIP Wednesday – Mostly Easy Street!

I’m still getting to know Kismet with lots of piecing and last night was no exception. I unhooked the embroidery unit and got her setup to do some more piecing so we could knock out Part 3 of Easy Street!

Getting better at mitered borders! They’re time intensive but worth the effort I think. Not sure if I’m going to quilt this myself or send it off to a longarmer. I might just do it myself since the seams are so awful on the inside (this quilt was started when I was a beginner and not well practiced...

Two new Jelly Roll Race Quilts!

Mom asked me to bring a jelly roll so I could teach her how to make a jelly roll race quilt. While we were at Quilting by the Bay she picked out a Key Lime Bali Pop, accompaning border fabric and on Sunday I showed her how to sew everything together. She had a drying rack which helped us sort strips out while chaining them all together and then she set to sewing!
