you know how i mentioned, "what's the point of having a LA and not quilting your own quilts"....well, i kindda got a little carried away with that.
i quilted five of my flimsies (six if you count my spring swap from 2010, but i already blogged about it)
i quilted the quilt made from the blocks from the summer 2011 swap. i'm calling it 'friendship dash' cause the block is a churn dash and friendship star mushed together.
and my favorite- feathers in the border!
he's already called dibs on it, but i think that's not fair. you can't gift me fabric for christmas then get the quilt too *giggle*
i really like this quilt. i think it looks like pop art. i date it to the early 70s based off one particular plaid. it screams 70s. it currently hangs at the top of the steps. i used an inexpensive 200 thread count sheet from walmart on the back. i prewashed the sheet and it quilted up nicely! can't beat a $15 backing.
i ran out of batting or i would of finished a couple more...it's hard to stop a boulder once it picks up momentum :)
FYI- all my quilting is done free handed without following a panto or assisted by a computer ...it's just how i roll :)
so now it's about getting the all that binding done!!! oh, and labels- can't forget to label them.....
