It’s done : Fire & Ice quilt is finally finished! I have “cheated” a bit with the quilting. The last few quilts were in free-motion technique. So this time I decided to work with the walking foot. The wave or serpentine is a standard stitch on the Bernina 440. Never tried before, but I have seen some quilts with this finishing and I thought this would break the strict geometrical pattern.
The finished size is 60″ x 84″. I just love the blue tulips backing fabric from Fabric Freedom.
Happy quilting, Barbora
After a “lazy” winter, the work in my professional life has picked up. I have had a few busy weeks and there is no change in sight. So for the moment I had to reduce patchwork and quilting just to classes. I enjoy the classes very much, my lady pupils are wonderful and we have a good time together. We are working on a QAYG quilt, most of the blocks are now ready for quilting. Last week I have helped Mary to finish her quilt and decided to go for FMQ with meanders :
Here a detail of the QAYG seams that join the individually quilted blocks :
And finally a photo of the finished quilt :
Maybe over the weekend I can work on the blocks of the Skill Builder BOM by Pile Of Fabric.
Happy sewing everyone, thanks for stopping, Barbora
Once more a very busy week not only at work but also on the quilting side. I have finished the Lollipop III quilt with 2 matching pillow covers. So instead of writing lots of words I shall post some photos :
Today I had a hard time taking a few shots, the sun was shining but the wind was quite strong and the quilt was very lively. Both other photos were taken indoors and the colors are a bit different.
And the pillow covers backing is with my favorite fabric :
Happy sewing, Barbora
