This first one has been pinned on for quite some time. It’s so busy that I knew an all over would be best. But I did give the white it’s own special treatment of back & forth lines. I saw this quilt in a free pattern leaflet you get from one of the magazines …you know when they send you a subscription request and there are free patterns inside. Yes..this was one of those. They did it in 3 colors …it wasn’t all that pretty ( I thought). SO I used my Amy scraps and put it together. I am in love.
Here is the back….which is not an Amy Fabric. I just liked it. I bought the whole bolt last summer when it was on sale at my shop. I love plaids. I loved teh colors in this. It goes with lots of my lines of fabrics. So busy, bright & Beautiful! It says Charisma All over it ( I just noticed the tag on my photo is spelled wrong…ugh! *sigh*)
I also quilted this Scrappy HST quilt. I quilted with a simple all over stipple. There is so much going on already that an all over design looks nice. But not only that this is one of those quilts that looks like the typical “quilt” that someone talks of their grandmother making long ago. Because of that I think a simple design works….because it will be used as a utility quilt as well. I originally Posted about it here.
I also scrapped the back. I love the way it turned out. 🙂 In true scrappy form..I also used scraps of batting and end of bobbins I had around. So it’s a scrappy from start to finish. Gotta use every last bit we buy, right?
So I have not made a HUGE dent in my stash this week. I haven’t really worked on my Mystery quilt at all. I am hung up on those darn Chevrons! So time consuming. I am going to try to commit to doing 75 a day this week so I can move past them ……and finish.
But I did finish this quilt. The quilt top was made by Harmony using my scraps. I had a large amount of these McKenna Ryan scraps. I loved these fabrics so much. Harmony made me two quilt tops…and Lori Made me a STUNNING show Stopper. That I really need to quilt. So this is the time of year that I have been waiting for. This is one of them….I just quilted all over feathers …..it suited the quilt well. Soft Subtle & beautiful.
So YTD: 14.5 +5 = 19.5
I am not going to take credit for scrappy quilts that come in from my friends ( made from my own scraps) as my own personal finishes. But since I own them I am going to make another category to count.
So this is a Scrappy Trade quilt for 2014:
1. Harmony’s “Soothing Water Quilt” (that’s my own personal name…I don’t know what it’s really called)
My personal Finishes for 2014:
1. Scrappy Squares Flimsy
2. Amy Scraps (quilted)
3. Scrappy 500 HST (quilted)
You might think 20 yards would be noticeable? Sadly no.
I hope you all have a great Sunday! Progress is being made around here! For sure!
