I am really working hard to try and whittle my quilt tops down.
1. I want to the freedom to work on some other projects without thinking about the many I have sitting there unfinished.
2. I need storage space. when you have bins full of quilts …you have to complete some to add some. LOL I know great problems I have right?
I donate quilts to various charities & fundraisers quite frequently and it’s nice to have some on hand. It’s nice to practice and have freedom to try new things.
So these are trade quilts. I send scraps to a few people…they make quilt tops for me and I quilt for them in exchange. I am not doing this with people I don’t already know & trust anymore because …well you know -> A few bad apples ruin it for everyone.
I had leftover Jelly rolls strips from a MoMo line called Wing it! Annette mixed in some other scraps and put this together. I love the bright, fun colors. I quilted all over flowers, vines & leaves ….except in a few of the solid color boxes I quilted them with back & forth lines…to give it some interest. You can see the designs in those solid color fabrics….custom quilting in the bright floral fabric gets lost. I also quilted L’s & e’s in the white border with circles within circles in the center scrappy border.
She took all of the scraps and put them together to make something from all of the odd pieces….I love these types of quilts. I have made a lot of these too. They are fun because it’s like figuring out a puzzle when you put them together. You work it all out and you see it come together and you couldn’t imagine it ahead of time. Those are always a fun surprise.
Thanks Ladies! It’s always a pleasure working with you! I love to see your creations!
