It finally dawned on me that if I waited for the sun to come out, photos might never be taken and the Whole Cloth Class sample never make it up at the shop. At some point I swear I’m going to learn how to use my camera more successfully.
I picked the Heather Ross up at Drygoods here in Seattle last month. The minute I saw it, the cheater print screamed, “whole cloth quilt!”
Keli instantly pointed out these flannels she had that were just the perfect match.Both the Heather Ross and the flannels washed as beautifully soft as she said they would.
I tried for some new examples of quilting with a walking foot which is part of the class’s technique/design focus.
I had yet to do a continuous circle and somewhat pulled it off. The first circle is the most difficult and I need to try out burying my threads, mostly because I am never pleased with stay-stitching or backstitching.
The citron quilt turned out ok. It’s sweet, but where I tried to quilt a design that left some spaces blank to look like blocks from the back it sagged. I had the same problem with the similar quilting on this one. Perhaps it is due to prewashing or just too much space.
I worked from stash for the bindings, using some older Lizzy House and Alexander Henry. Both turned out super cute and are finally up at the shop!
Hope you had a great Halloween!
